Throwing in the Towel?

So Hess is now doing a $1B stock buyback. Sounds like they have no good prospects to invest in so buying back stock is the best alternative. How long till a major takes a run at Hess for the Guyana prospect?

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
