Anyone Challenging Their Termination?

I want a reason why I was put on the list. I had a good performance review and think it is because of my age. Im feeling emboldened. Get ready HR for some EEOC action.

Wrong people gone, again!

This is becoming really tiresome. Instead of the true dead weight in the company, Devon keeps laying off good people who actually know how to do their jobs and more than pull their weight around here. How exactly do they expect to see any... read more

This was not a WARN Layoff, so...

Will a list ultimately be mailed out to those terminated, (as in 2016) showing age and positions? Read the agreement carefully. I'm sure that HR modified the legalese based on 2016 lessons learned. My prayers go out all of you. I was in your shoes... read more

I heard from two sources that Wellcon is shuddering and BU geologists are going to steer their own wells as in the golden days - any truth? What about the DE's in Wellcon if true? All that data will be lost, or maybe just the geologists are affected.

All Hail Devon exec team

i'm publicly asking the devon board to increase compensation for the exec team. DH's leadership, energetic speeches, and inspiring crystal-ball 2020 vision (full pun intended!) fully justify his 2017 $13M compensation (>50% increase from 2016). even... read more
