Can people at Hess realize that a company is run by more than simply engineers and geologists? It's astounding how little respect you get here if you are in other departments. Do people really think that accounting and finance don't contribute to the... read more

Employees are your backbone

I was treated awfully at Hess. There is no sense of loyalty or value as an employee there. People were promoted due to politics instead of expertise. Positions that could easily be filled in-house were done outside of the company devaluing its team... read more

Hess can't last like this!

Spiral is right!

Whoever said Hess Corp. was in a death spiral it appears they were right. It looks like we are headed below 13 billion market cap and maybe 10 by the end the year. I bet we have layoffs just to satisfy the stock holders that something is being done... read more

Get ready for another round of layoffs!

Something has got to happen soon to stop our death spiral. I am afraid we are about to have another big layoff soon. Has anybody heard if management has a rabbit to pull out of the hat soon?

Wake up! It's not working!

Prices are predicted to stay low for a very long time! Is management sleeping? Someone help me here, has anyone seen the changes in strategy required for us to survive? Maybe they are just planning on selling out!
