Doesn’t look good atm. Predictions are $1.39 per share earnings, which would be a year-over-year decline of 16.27%. Latest revenue estimate is $3.87 billion, almost 10% down from the prior year Q. Guess we have to wait till 27th, but I wonder what... — read more
It has to be right? I’m referring to what we spent to buy our way onto the JUST 100 list. It certainly is good for a laugh, but at the end of the day, we certainly approach our public image with intentionality, because no one who works here, or... — read more
The swing of the kid at the end of the baseball commercial couldn’t capture the soft, wannabe winner mentality of leadership any better. Nicely done
IT ever start doing their jobs? Or still gatekeeping and stonewalling?
Bets on if management will take steps to clean up the pollution in the tower?
The inability to have honest conversations. When you cannot give critical feedback to a leader, when you can't question a decision that's been made, when disagreements are frowned upon, when it's unpopular to point out problems. The worst thing of... — read more

How is the business going ? any surprises coming this quarterly result ? Or is the market underestimating performance ?
10$ lost in the last month and way down from a high of 70$ Can’t wait until the earnings call and another dividend slash to crush the price further. It’ll be time to buy before the next big acquisition inflates the price for a few months. — read more
Opening up that position for remote work isn’t going to get you any closer to doing what you actually need to do. And promoting some doormat to “lead” tweedle Dee and tweedle dum isn’t going to stop the bad press. Fix your house, get rid of the... — read more

It’s devon buying Permian Resources out of midland tx? Here we go again!
I didn’t realize it was acceptable to get completely out of control inebriated at user conferences on our dime, but apparently that’s where we are at. No oversight, no control, just let the good times roll. Wonderful example of our employees to the... — read more
It's miserable to be in a workplace where toxic people come to work each day to undermine good employees. Their focus is never the mission or the customers. It is the deeply dysfunctional belief - a pathology - that taking others down will somehow... — read more

Workplace bullying is synonymous with our culture at Devon. Not only during this so called “merger of equals” that was really just a thinly veiled cover for an acquisition, but throughout the last decade. Situations such as: Falsely accusing the... — read more
The shock and awe of the faces from an anonymous survey results have been glorious.
When is our resident poster child for technology PR spinning his next yarn? I have some friends that want to listen and I think they’d get a kick out of his complete and utter lack of substance while trying to portray excellence in innovation. — read more

Exxon ready to buy, will wait til max pain on shares. Sucks because last thing I want to do is move to north Houston.
Another dividend cut, another share plunge
It’s really not worth the time and money to attract top talent if you aren’t considering the work environment they are coming into. Retention only happens when your company culture is worth staying for, and we haven’t done the hard work to remedy our... — read more

Exxon? Chevron? Who’s it gonna be that ACQUIRES us? And you can be sure they don’t need any IT help. Time to start refreshing those resumes technology! Such great news!
Worked @ DVN for 14 years. Loved this place and got let go with the WPX merger. Chances are the cycle will continue and the longer you are there the greater the chance you will get let go. It is sad, real sad. In my tenure there my department had 11... — read more
