This group is in total chaos. Every manager hates the leader. No direction, no patience, not involved in any capacity.

Company executives are buying company stock

For me, this is a good sign. The fact is that the more they buy the more their personal interest are aligned with the company’s interest. The other thing is that these people mostly care about their personal profit and wealth and wouldn't be buying... read more

RTC is such a let down now.

Chk is the stock to own!

Remember when we all we told about the grandma on the plane and that Chesapeake was the stock to own? Well since chk stock is down ~50%. Hopefully that grandma didn't buy any shares, shame on you DL

CEO’s view on the WildHorse purchase

We are expanding

I don’t know why everyone is so upset. We just added several hundred thousand acres of wild horses to our circus. We are now officially the Barnum and Bailey of OKC.

Best of luck

Christmas Comes to San Antonio tomorrow

The San Antonio office is going to look like your living room on Christmas morning; people are going to be accepting packages left and right with great big smiles on their faces.

RIF 2018/2019

Here comes a RIF. They are about to thin the herd, my friend. You are a patsy for your bosses preferred employee. That is the groundwork for middle management to control who is first picked to join the open market.


Has anybody at Chesapeake survived being put on PIP? Or should I just pack my bags right now?

Internal problems - what's yours?

We're part of a group of people who worked with other groups to switch everything to SAP and can tell you how messed up the final product is. I though surely one of the consulting firms we paid millions to or that edge team would step in to fix the... read more

HR Question?

Does the company have to pay a relocation bonus if the office where I report to is moved 110 miles from where I currently report? Or offer a package if I choose not to relocate? Let's just say hypothetically

Another one down

Another one bites the dust. And another ones down and another one bites the dust. We should get a loud speaker and play this from the top of building 1 every time someone resignes. This could be the exit theme song for the mass Exodus.


I left CHK several months back, did they ever sell/rent those East buildings? Last I had heard they were looking into consolidating into fewer buildings but did not know how to divide the HVAC loop that is tied to those buildings. Also, the daycare... read more

Well now we know

About 200 exec-level jobs to be cut by end of October. I hope this is the last round of layoffs.

Utica closes in two weeks... guessing we should all get ready for a round of ‘Who gets the ax?’ The Jobs posted online are mostly for very technically savvy employees. Pretty sure an accountant can’t fill for a geo spot.
