Topics regarding layoffs at ConocoPhillips
I can almost assuredly say that we will soon start buying things once oil goes above 80-90. This will accumulate enough stuff to sell when oil goes back to 30-40 at expense of enormous loss and layoffs. I like this strategy and reminds me of Michelle... read more
You guys see this posting recently. Looks like Canada is hiring agian
I say let’s go crazy and bring 4 day work week to COP. Make COP great again ! It’s already popular and getting viral, let’s not miss on this and be the last.
Has anybody heard if there will be any transfers from Bartlesville to Houston? If transferred is the company still offering loss protection for the sale of our homes? We are wondering if majority of layoffs will be in Houston making them proportional... read more

Hello layoffs, my old friend It's time to talk 'bout you again Management's vision of who they're keeping Surely the cuts will be sweeping And the vision that was planted in my brain Still remains Within the sound of silence To those above it all is... read more
Once again, how does any management in exploration still have a job? Anyone who was part of the deep water exploration program should have been shown the door in 2015. Shell has worked hard to cut costs, I don’t think it has anything to do with... read more
2018 is the ten-year anniversary of hiring The Finder (no one else within the company was deemed competent to lead Exploration at that time, which is interesting, our current leadership was available then), and we’ve got another reorganization and... read more
September is nearing and we are hearing nothing from corporate. Managers won't even make eye contact. When any of us ask to talk one all they say is do your job and keep your head up and it will be OK. What's going on with restructuring and... read more
Good news amidst corporate restructuring For those haters here is real good news demonstrating best company to work for.
This is just an honest opinion. Some of you may disagree, but this is how I experienced it in conoco. In the current system, it doesn’t matter how smart you are, it doesn’t matter what do you know, most of the time (may be all the time) Your... read more
S - Stupidity (As in our strategy through the split) P- Pompous (umm the ELT?) I - Inept (Most management) R- Resign (what the ELT or CEO should do) I- Inconsistent (COPs message to employees) T- Toxic (The current culture of this company) Sums it up... read more
Please, if anybody has any new info on incoming layoffs can they please share it with us? I'm so stressed out by not knowing what's going to happen I'm having trouble sleeping. Letting us know there'll be layoffs and then giving us no details, just... read more
1 Lead cost savings by example: you’re already over-compensated, get rid of your special perks like parking, executive jets, special employment contracts, special severance, guaranteed stock options and RSU’s, special-access office suite, free food... read more
Consultants have advised bringing tasks currently being done in Bartlesville to corporate headquarters. They are recommending complete withdraw from Bartlesville as soon as possible. Head cont reduction and efficiency improvement will result. Another... read more
What are you thoughts? We spin a good self image but does it really represent who we are? It seems we have just gone downhill since the split, it couldn’t be managements fault could it?
How bad will AK get it this time? How many of Texans will head north? Wheels must be in motion already for the migration, who's coming?
I don’t understand all the outcry when it specifically says “modest cuts to boost the productivity”! These are exciting times and we as brothers have to stick together. Also the timing is not near festival season like every year so it should be okay... read more
Asked by . I am curious, is COP still an overstaffed company? I worked there several years ago in IT, after the split and it definitely felt that way at the time. Too many employees for the amount of work being done. I eventually left... read more
We all know that almost all HQ employees are honestly utilized at most about 20% of the time. And most of this time is spent on useless requests from useless managers desperately protecting their own empires, while incompetent Leadership Forum... read more
Obliterate technology. Obliterate exploration. Significantly reduce RP/RC teams. Each implementation RE/geo pair should manage 4 rigs worth of inventory. Each DE/geosteerer pair should have at least 3 rigs. Each CE should manage 4 rigs worth of frac... read more
Aug 14, 2018, 8:25am CDT Houston-based energy giant ConocoPhillips (NYSE: COP) plans to trim its workforce again in mid-September.
It seems the ones we have aren’t that productive or good, going to the gym and drinking coffee at the cafe all day. Maybe iPepper will have more than great PowerPoint skills and won’t blame software for their lack of actually knowing what they are... read more
Anybody else yearning for the good old days when job security was an actual thing here? When I didn't have to worry every single day whether I'll still have a job tomorrow? This job has turned into a never-ending source of stress that's starting to... read more
If you google search Conocophillips, the second suggestion is layoffs! No other oil companies have achieved it, the best I could search. Great job ! On a different note, the EOI special case post is mysteriously gone.
We have closed many remote over staffed remote offices over the years. It has always been amazing that Bartlesville has been able to dodge previous centralization efforts. Apparent that Bartlesville is unable to avoid this one. Good luck to all... read more
ConocoPhillips has shrunk from a global workforce of 19,000 people four years ago to just more than 11,000 employees now.
Or can we expect more of the same next week?
Are the rumors of moving most folks from L48 field offices to Houston true? Who would want to move from Billings or Denver, or even Midland, to Houston?
Will they cease to exist? Or just reduce and combine?
DM said that he is "reducing the number of groups and entities." What will this actually look like? How many supervisors will be under each manager? How many individual contributors will be under each supervisor? Post the rumors you've heard about... read more
The Permian Basin is the hottest basin in the world right now... but not at COP. One reason for this is the revolving door at the top of the BU. The last few years it has gone from BP to TK to NO and now HH. The managers care more about using it as a... read more
Why do we keep the same inept management time and time again? I don’t think it is revolutionary leadership that has helped us, more likely higher oil prices and fire sales mixed in with a little ELT wallet fattening stock buybacks. Once again it is... read more
Just a friendly reminder our CFO uses EOI against employees, so if you’re in his organization, be careful.
Just curious if this is the last round of layoffs or there are more planned for next year or so ? Someone got to stand up and ask this in each and every town halls.
I am surprised how Canada is still maintaining such a big foot print with many of the Assets already sold.
Bartlesville IT has been protected through all of the downturn. They continue to hire 50 to 100 new college hires every year. The company has sold Canada and San Juan assets that were big customers of Bartlesville IT and yet they continue to hire... read more
What's coming down the pike? For a pure Independent E&P our size to be more efficient we have decided to centralize to improve our speed we can react to business environment changes and persue new reserves. With that said we know that not all will be... read more
