They have exhausted their efforts, the leadership has no grasp on what the company needs to be, or how to get to a recovery position. The field offices are filled with the trash they left when they purged those who wouldn`t drink the koolaid. They... — read more
Did you all see jack climbing that beanstalk looking for the magic? Little does he know what really lies at the top.
A bad system will beat a good person every time.
So now that John Raines has consolidated his power base, any bets on how long until he goes after Clay Gaspars head? The prophecy will then be fulfilled. The heir apparent satisfied.
Does that mean that the rumored cuts can be expected to happen in June?
So how’s everyone else doing getting rid of the WPX folks?
Y’all tryna be Google, you ain’t even YAHOO! y’all tryna be Apple, you ain’t even AOL
I believe that the upcoming quarterly results will be more than good. Perhaps someone else wants to make a prediction? However, when it comes to us employees, I have no high hopes.
rumor is the axe falls today
Why would you reduce headcount in one of the most busy areas? It’s coming get ready!!
What other options are you considering? I would rather go to a much smaller company.
Any one hearing the rumor that CLR is interested in the DVN Tower, and is discussing a swap with DVN returning to the old DVN building, and CLR taking up the Tower? One Company with a bright future, needs expansion space, the other a sinking ship... — read more
I absolutely do not believe in this leadership and I doubt that they even have a clear vision and plan for the future of this company. They may have a good plan for themselves, but I would say they are leading this company in the wrong direction. I... — read more

That is my personal opinion. Maybe someone has a different prediction?
Rather than building a new county jail, let's use all of the empty space in Larry's tower.
Now that bonuses are out, how many of you are looking for greener grass?

I'm pretty pi---d off. These guys across the industry, at Devon in particular have been ripping off landowners for many year stealing millions and even billions of dollars from the rightful owners. They use every trick they can think of. Anybody else... — read more
Since we are all together here waiting on our 10k morale boosting payout, I would like to take this opportunity to reflect back on a pivotal moment in Devon EHS history. The date was early 2018, and by now most everyone waited for the JHA process... — read more
I could take all the cr-p they dish out daily if I was paid enough. I'm not, though. So I'm done.
Got some buddies out in Loving co. who keep saying their check stubs haven't looked right ever since all this news on royalty underpayments came to their attention. I'm sure all these operators try to pull a quick one on the rightful landowner, but... — read more
A voluntary round would be ideal. I'm ready to leave but after more than a decade, I'd hate to miss a chance at severance. If it wasn't for that, I'd be long gone. As it is, I've now been here longer than I planned. I keep coming here in hopes of... — read more
Just checking if anyone has heard anything about layoffs lately?
Why are so many VP’s, managers, directors, supervisors .... cut the fat! I want higher dividends.
The only reason DVN is still around is because the management after the merger is predominantly WPX. Old Horseface Dave grabbed his golden parachute just like he did at KM. BTW, still Waaaaay overstaffed.
Devon's demise is primarily the result of an influx of car industry six sigma ninjas, continuous hiring based upon family and friend favors rather than competency, and of course,, light-bulb head. Prove Me wrong....
Just because there haven't been any big layoffs lately and there hasn't been much talk about anything like that coming our way does not mean we are safe. Devon is always looking to cut costs. The easiest way to do it is to get rid of employees... — read more
Senior management and HR has determined that focus on the whole person in assisting in employee retention. With that thought we will all be getting Pelotons at the beginning of the next quarter. It sounds crazy but it beats watch that lady build... — read more
This Board is dead. Where the discussion?
Is it just me or does it seem to you that there has never been more pressure to achieve the best possible performance? In my case, that pressure is increasingly unbearable. On the other hand, I think their performance pressure serves as a very... — read more
68% of all US seniors have been vaccinated as of April 25th. I am posting this to see if Corporate Napoleons would let this pass?
There's been some chatter about more cuts, does anybody know anything concrete about it?
This board used to have many active posters - but I guess they are all gone (or Wide Track got rid of them all). What's the lastest news from inside the corporate Tower?
It’s a sad day here on broke back mountain. It appears the father of wide track aka light bulb head, has finally been burned out if you will. It seems that without his army of knife wielding ehs “professionals” lead by his general wide track, his... — read more
What a colossal waste of $$. i don't miss driving downtown to use a phone and computer at a desk to communicate with someone in Odessa since i already have a phone and computer and desk at home. i do miss the cafeteria fish tacos though
The back stabbers and the “yes” men everywhere. This seems to have become a really popular way of behaving here. Terrible and quite exhausting, but it really feels great to anticipate the back stabber's move and stop him in his tracks. I hope he... — read more
Do you think due to the recent re-org, future planning, current free cash flow, and even more recent spike in oil prices we can FINALLY take a breath and maybe have a good 3-5years of stability and not have even think about looking on a site like... — read more
So another round of layoffs to take place by September. By the ghost of wide track himself it will happen. Prepare yourselves. Two man enter, one man leave
