Friendly Reminder

Manually fixing data downstream is only curing “symptoms”, not the “illness” itself. Bad data is usually a structural problem which means it will come back eventually, and nobody wants to fix data over and over again, unless that’s what you feel... —  read more 

How Far We’ve Fallen

So now you don’t even need to go to college to work in the Tower?! Look at all our postings, and just a high school degree is required. Can’t have too many people asking questions, so let’s bring in people that wouldn’t know what to ask! —  read more 

You Don’t Say?

I've noticed that data initiatives bring up all the dirty laundry in an organization. If your processes are sub-optimal, it'll show up as data quality issues. If your organization is siloed, it'll show up as disconnected data. If your organization... —  read more 

I read something tosay

All successful companies get to a point where they’d benefit from fresh eyes. Except Devon. It’s worked for 50 years, why change it? That’s the way we’ve always done it :) Even with the opportunity given the myriad of acquisitions each year just to... —  read more 

Now Then.

Now that the show dogs are back from their talk circuits, will they listen to the thundering roar of negative press and feedback and bring her to the table to answer for her deceit and ineptitudes? Or will they, say it with me…

Warms My Heart

As someone who noped the heck out of there after I saw the writing on the wall, it brings me endless joy to see that I was accurate in my predictions. Predictions that it was not a merger, that it was an acquisition, that anyone from WPX that joined... —  read more

It Is Time

Can we PLEASE get rid of this roadblocking, stonewalling, and incompetent detriment to the company? At this point it’s laughable how little accountability she is held to. She would be better served working at Aravellis’ than in charge of so many... —  read more

Trouble in Paradise?

What’s the body count up to now? I hear they are dropping anyone who even plays nice with the WPX folks. Only those actively trying to sabotage those that came over in the acquisition are allowed to remain.

About Time

So glad they finally posted a position to handle the pipe data in the BUs. The data has been trash for years. Hopefully whoever they hire in that data role will be better than the current nincompoop. I won’t hold my breath though, no good can come... —  read more 

The News has Me Thinking

All these articles about the Russian military in disarray, being routed by the Ukrainians, the internal power struggles, and squabbling, has me thinking about Devon and how the technological ineptitude and corruption would be exposed if we would just... —  read more

Quiet Quitting?!

That’s just how you live a long and healthy life at Devon. It’s worked for me well, banking the stock and dividends for my trips to Mexico all while I do the bare minimum and keep my head down. Now Quiet Firing! That is a well used tactic, especially... —  read more

It is almost that time

18 months since the merger is here. Will there be a mass exodus since people no longer have to pay back as much of the relocation package? Or will the recession fears keep them in a toxic workplace with terribly unethical leaders?


With just a three letter word you can progress and climb the ladder at a speed faster than fathomable. Yes. Yes men are rewarded and those who form a rational thought to the contrary are labeled trouble makers and get the mark of the beast. Yes men... —  read more 

Great quarter people!

From the outside it looks like a hint of the old Devon! Fake it till you make it was a great move. Next step is "make it till you break it" which is in Devon's DNA. Good luck with the next step and leave Harold something to buy.

Former Employee

So are you all booking 4000 lines of revenue by hand? Just curious because this company that I’m at now does. What is automation? I’m an expensive data entry clerk!!! 4000 lines?!?

New Technologies?!

That’s laughable. You can write all the flowy articles you want about data and technology, but until you change your leaders in technology from safeguarding their empires to actually innovating, Devon’s trash data and backwards mindset will be the... —  read more 

The End is Near

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 


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.
