Layoff Lottery!

Show Me The Money! Can you say Layoffs? I hope I win the layoff lottery. It is the dumbest thing I have ever seen though. I have watched over the past few years, we will lay someone off, pay them a 6 months severance, and then rehire someone 3 months... read more

More people need to leave on their own

I hope so many people leave that they either have to go back and rehire positions that the company has just released, or they choose not too and force the already overburdened employees out the door. At a certain point, you can only eliminate so many... read more

Is this deal good


Prop Bets Anyone?

Welcome to HSE venting

What did you expect? You are creating this environment where people are willing to admit their wrong doing, and then get rewarded with a public f---ging. The f---ging that occurred today could be compared to Queen Cersei being walked through the... read more

Happy Layoff Anniversary!

Intelligent Ops

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

Ah, but the KH/KD saga continues...even as stock price is $1.98 as of Dec 20, 9:48 AM EST Say what you will about Aubrey, but he NEVER would have allowed such incompetence and cronyism to persist for so long. Fortunately, moved all my CHK 401k into... read more

Must be nice

It must be nice to be a well paid contractor and sit in your office all day working and planning your next big stock deal on E-Trade.

RTC is such a let down now.

If you don't like your position, the Job that you are doing is too hard or you have to really work for a pay check. All you have to do is CRY to your supervisor or manager and they will move you to a new easier position. That way you can work a lot... read more
