My previous post got removed for whatever reason, but here is the repost. Pioneer forgot to follow its own rules to live by, especially those related to RESPECT values. No wonder they were worried when the news about the PE merger got leaked to... — read more
Topics regarding layoffs at Pioneer Natural Resources Co.
In this round of layoffs Pioneer forgot to follow its own rules to live by, especially those that fall under the respect values. No wonder they were unhappy when the news of the merger were leaked to press. The did not want people to associate... — read more
For those of you who got the package. Would you go back if asked back?
After the Bloomberg interview I feel that we are getting ready for a Exxon takeover.
I just watched our CEO’s interview on Bloomberg where he says there will be only a few independent shale producers in a few years? Everything is changing very quickly and I would not be surprised if some more consolidation happens soon. After... — read more
Could it be that ss and his son executed the transaction hoping to sell two companies for more than each one individually? So much of their capital tied up in it, sounds like a good exit strategy to happily ever after?
So of course we are all glad to have kept our jobs (for now). But the morale is shot. Different supervisors, different roles, ambiguous PMP process targeted at getting rid of people in March w/out any package. No target bonus, maybe half of target... — read more
So Scott Sheffield is now bailing out his son’s company (Parsley) after laying off 300 of Pioneers employees. Is that how many employees Parsley has? What a coincidence.
I think PNR CEO S. S. let the cat out of the bag when he spoke publicly about the petroleum industry was in for a major consolidation if the downturn continues. Well oil stayed pretty much below 40 and if your read the WSJ the consolidation started... — read more
We were all blatantly lied to
IF he couldn't make it work with his tennis pro VPs the plan was always to have parsley aquire acreage at a discount that Pioneer would have been charged a premium for. Hey landowners there is a reason Pioneer uses shadow companies to lease and... — read more
How big do you think the cuts would be on our side?
Jagged Peak Energy gets eaten by Parsley, Parsley gets eaten by Pioneer, Pioneer gets eaten by Exxon, Exxon gets eaten by share holders. In the end everyone becomes waste if your not one of the kernels of corn. Its the natural order of the Oil and... — read more
I would not have believed what I read in the WSJ today on the merging of Parsley Energy and Pioneer. This merger will not require the exchange of cash rather it will be an equity exchange; probably 1 share of PNR for 5 shares of Parsley Energy. ... — read more
Pioneer - Parsley tango, good or bad?
I’m voting “hey step bro”
Come on Exxon! We are more valuable than Concho!
This is JIMBO & DRY HOLE PLANO JIM back for another thought and thread, so many excellent and very constructive comments on one of my earlier posts concerning learning about the oil industry. Following the blood bath of the past few weeks the... — read more
Last four weeks of pay are in, computer is about to be out. Just waiting for the final payout. Real question: “what everyone else is planning on doing with the book?”
OK this is going to be a Dry Hole Plano Jim post and a JIMBO post since many have figured out who I am. Just an observation on many of the posts and I think there is a lack of oilfield basic knowledge possibly due to recent times and... — read more
SS was getting the company ready for a buyout all along!
300 individual contributors gone, and all of the managers stayed. Math seems funky to me.
When can we expect round 3 to start?
Writing is on the wall. XOM is coming!
Pioneer has definitely made the move away from long-term employment by its core specialty groups towards the current High Tech business model of GIG employment; where the Geologist, Landmen, Drillers, Workover, Accounting all the core functions to... — read more
More layoffs to come if oil stays at $40. What does the future hold for PXD?
Those of you who got to stay please stop bringing those who are gone even more down. Some are still mourning the loss of employment, inability to provide for the family long term, separation from the friends, the unfairness of the process. There are... — read more
Has anybody else noticed a lot of coworkers haven't been heard from in a week or so? DP is acting sus. Just sayin.
I truly wish the good people of Pioneer all the best that did not get a package, if PNR sales then that is what is in Gods and maybe it will turn out okay for most of you making that transition. Rumors of a sale have been talked about for years... — read more
My 19 plus year career starting dying long before the 2019 March Layoffs, and it was due to favoritism. In 2014 The Envy. Department had 6 staff people to manage environmental reserves projects, spill response, regulatory driven plans, 1,500 air... — read more
Some people who stayed saying it’s all about business needs and performance. Is it? I have a different opinion, but it no longer matters
People on this forum can really piss me off sometimes. I don't care about all the layoffs, that doesn't negate the fact that this is still one of the best companies to work for! Find me one other O&G company that has job security? I'm betting you... — read more
What???? No extra check for staying lol no one cares about the field, all the people at Pioneer care about is a free lunch and sending a email and CC’ing every one on a email throwing people under a bus. Getting them to do PowerPoint slides for a BS... — read more
So after months of stress field employees who don’t know what individual contributor means but showed up to work through the pandemic while the rest of the company “worked from home” can finally breathe a sigh of relief. Those spared managed two or... — read more
Glad a book by an octogenarian friend of our fearless leader got a solid plug today. God forbid we had any progressive thinking and leadership versus swinging by the seat of our pants
Pioneer was great for some time, I met some wonderful people who hopefully I will stay friends with going forward. As I got my call yesterday, my manager started on telling me how I great I was, how knowledgeable i was. He kept on going for a little... — read more
Why do they use the same scripted questions and not answer real ones that are submitted? Cowards and liars.
