Topics regarding layoffs at Anadarko Petroleum Corp.
Now that it's been 2 years since the big round of layoffs, it's quite interesting to notice how many people let go are now in really vibrant and healthy start-ups and are at much higher staffing grade levels - CEOs, VPs, etc.. There are also quite a... read more
What 3rd party manages the PWA?
Enjoying the insight
How many people have to leave the company before the EC will reverse course and bring their technical staff back from Midland and remove the fear of a looming transfer for those staff not moved?
Let’s all be glad we don’t live in a world like this... Uncle Al busting his golfing hint to make sure things like this never happen: Dishonest, shady, bribe-taking contractor finally gets called on his b.s. and gets let go - (not fired, he was never... read more
What's the scoop on reorg? Hurry and post before this thread gets deleted.
Glad I got the boot. There is life after APC😎
Is MozLNG finally ready for monetization? Mitsui thinks so. Who are likely buyers? A certain Gulf NOC? Will 10% satisfy? Or will they want more?
Rumor is we are getting bought
With these new additions to our core value system I’m sure that we’ll be a premier oil and gas company again! Everyone roll your sleeves up and get to shoveling. Be sure to keep quiet about it though... read more
I think we have more employees than befor the layoff!
3 execs in less than a year. What is the deal?
Apparently APC is in the news again due to a bubbling crater that smells like sulfur. Does anyone have specifics they would like to share? Broken pipelines, bubbling gas, and explosions seem to par for the course with APC, especially in Colorado.
Let's start this Friday off with a safety moment, shall we? Some may not know this, but today marks national Front to Back Day. On this day we should all stop and remember the importance of wiping from front to back. The life you save could be your... read more
Any word on how Bonuses are going to look this year?
Heard APC broke ground on their new office complex in Midland. Also, heard they’re short handed wrt geologists. Anyone here in the PB? Any idea on when APC is going to start approving geological positions for hire?
To those of us who were laid off two years ago, where were you and what were you doing at the time you were let go and escorted out the door?
Besides the doom and gloom and the impending layoffs and general feeling of discontent (and malcontent!), how is working for APC these days? I suspect not much has changed except for the feel good, reach around Town hall speeches and the left over... read more
So, we have town hall here shortly. I wonder what they are going to tell us. This is the first time in the past 5 years at least that they don’t release AIP or merit raises guidance before town hall. Companies are hiring, people will jump ship if... read more
I am over the top confused by APC leadership. Why are we still pursuing LNG? $20BN Project. The last I saw we just made a $900MM profit in 2 years. So in 20 quarters we can pay for this charade of a project. Very nice Walker.. Very nice. I have heard... read more
It's quiet and stable. We can use that for a change. I wish you all the best...
Nope, AAET will not add value to APC’s bottom line. It’s just a smoke and mirrors setup designed to give the impression that the execs are breathing life into the carcass of a lifeless company. If you’re wondering whether you should invest, I’d... read more
Anadarko, is that you? A Japanese company and a North American company decided to have a canoe race on the St. Lawrence River. Both teams practiced long and hard to reach their peak performance before the race. On the big day, the Japanese won by a... read more
Looks like there's fresh talk of a merger with Apache. If you put two losers together, does it make a winner?
Could someone please provide a discription of what 'AAET' is and how this service provides value? I've read (over the course of several months) on this particular forum that there are people who favor AAET positively and those that do not. Please... read more
Check the Insider. “Propane Recall Exemplifies Core Values”. When did they add “covering your a-- from lawsuits” to the core values?
Anadarko is trying to rapidly reform incentive structure because Activist investors are targeting APC. They have already gotten Chevron CEO fired (layoffs coming), GE (CEO fired, splitting up for parts, the crown jewel digital/ Predix platform is... read more
I heard a rumor that Al is selling one of his yachts and donating the proceeds to the employee bonus pool in order to make up for the shortfall this year. Should I buy that Camry my wife has had her eye on for the last 6 months, or do you guys think... read more
Merry Christmas to everyone still stuck at APC. 2018 is going to be an even bigger comedy of errors than 2017, so break out the popcorn!
How about that chemical spill in Colorado? Great work Anadarko. I’d like to propose a new core value for 2018 in addition to the ones previously mentioned about sleeping with your subordinates...... “Safety third!”
APC has been on a hiring binge for about a year now. Would you really want to come back here? Think about it. The worst performers are running the show. The ppt Kings. The pr queens. The color coded meeting jesters. There are more layers now than... read more
Just wanting to know why the changes at the top in Denver? I guess the fat references got it canned last night great job APC!!!
The APC show is ends for me in 2018. I am done boys and girls, no threats, no requests for management, I am tired of pay stagnation, VCP removal and now AIP "adjustment". It is time for greener pastures. I will miss most all of you guys and gals... read more
On a scale of 1-5, where 1 is a bag of doorknobs and 5 is George Washington, how would you rate leadership at anadarko? And why?
Anyone know what bonuses will look like come March? I want to know if I’ll be able to pay off the credit card debt I’ve amassed from buying useless $h1t people sell on the classifieds board.
I'm going to check out the APC Christmas party this year and reconnect with old friends and co-workers. Could someone please post when and where the holiday party is in Denver? I thought I would stop by and say hi..maybe grab a few drinks and rub... read more
It sounds like a lot of people are unhappy in their jobs at Donnie Darko. I have a solution that’s worked wonders for me over the last few years, and it could work for you too. Just activate your imagination and pretend you’re doing something that’s... read more
Anybody know if “cray-guh” is going to whiting too?
