I have no insights, and I don't want to be a bearer of bad news...just wondering if anyone has heard rumors about layoffs on the horizon? Some colleagues are already very worried that there could be cuts very soon.
If you are not in the clique or the good Ole boys club. Forget about a promotion! It's Business as Usual as Pioneer! Promote the less qualified!
I find the question about why people are not leaving if they're not happy rather silly. First of all, people are leaving. Some of our best people, at that. Pay attention to the company-wide attrition, I'm relatively sure that it's at its highest in... — read more
I have to admit that I didn't really believe in such stories before, that is, that it is possible for a grown up person to be a victim of bullying, until it happened that the manager started bullying my close colleague. I have never before seen such... — read more
What is happening at ESPN right now is the same path we are on. Since execs are greedy and power hungry they will always attempt to appease the DI mob until that mob comes to eat them too. Nothing will ever be good enough. BTW, where are the POCs on... — read more
I don’t understand why everyone complains and acts like it’s so bad here… we make good money and if you don’t like it then leave someone else will work your job happily
I’m sick and tired of being told by I&E to put in a work request for every single thing I ask them to do.
Everybody is excited about tomorrow possibly bringing good news regarding work from home and I'm sitting here stressing, convinced they're about to drop a bo-b on us either regarding another restructuring with layoffs or deciding against WFH or... — read more
Does anyone have any insight on what they are announcing? I heard they are giving in on work from home but no details until Monday. I’m sure it’s just “oh we care so much about you. So here stay home on Friday “. Friday’s are such a waste here... — read more
What’s happened? Double point 40k acreage?
Most Permian deals this year have been concluded at between $7,000 and $12,000 per acre. Why the huge premium?
This place has turned into a giant tu-d. Everyone seems to be afraid of something. Poor decisions are being made. The only experienced leadership is at the MC level and they are completely disconnected. Middle management is a product of brown nosing... — read more
Stop complaining about having to go back to the office or your sucky managers. you have a job that pays you six figures for very little engineering you have to do. You perform robotic steps following SOPs with little thought or creativity attached to... — read more
Everything would be much easier if I could have a serious and direct conversation with this man. However, far from it. In this case, everything you say can be used against you. I tried in a nice way to build some reasonable, normal relationship with... — read more
Two very talented young engineers were brilliant when they came here. Their talent was really promising and I thought they would do great things here. But no. Not only did they not progress, but over time they became very average. I mean, this... — read more
Why would PXD want to merge with OXY and take on their mountain of debt? Also talks of a merger with COP as a third as well
Rumors circulating that we are merging with OXY??? ConocoPhillips also in the running?? $32 per share value all stock
So as of Thursday, we all have to wear a mask at PNR unless we show them proof that you've gotten the COVID vaccine. That... OR wear a scarlet letter while everyone else walks around without a mask! This is pure discrimination and I know I'm not... — read more
I had forgotten how unproductive and inflexible working from the office is. From the needless commute, to finding and setting up conference rooms, hallway chatter...and just general quality of life reduction, due to a loss of flexibility.
I’m a mid-career employee and was wondering how hard it will be to find other opportunities now as opposed to being laid off? Is there anyone who has left that was able to find employment fairly easily while still being employed? Is there anyone who... — read more
Problem 1 - PXD is a one basin company that provides virtually no real industry experience, unless you plan to spend your career in the Permian Basin. unfortunately, the industry and the permian basin won't last that long. Problem 2 - the upper... — read more
Do you think this is an absolutely impossible option or is there still some small chance that they could give us the opportunity to volunteer? I personally don't believe it because it wouldn't work in their favor, a huge number of people would... — read more
Pioneer will buy endeavor. Exxon will buy Pioneer. I can't wait.
I am a “young” engineer, and constantly wondering what the future career growth looks like? No development programs, very little vertical or lateral movement, just getting more and more expensive, thus, more disposable as the time progresses.
Asking to myself...
I accidentally landed on this page and came across information about the new PMP system. I was laid off mostly thanks to the old system which was unfair and had many flaws. I could complain about it all day long. I'm interested in how different the... — read more
Are they going to cut or start hiring?
A lot of people are looking for fulfilment at work, which is totally misguided because it no longer exists. It is much easier for me now that I do not expect anything. I do my part with the minimum effort, I take the paycheck and that’s it. I... — read more
The majority of your staff realize that you don't contribute anything to your teams. Many geos are clearly overworked. Pioneer could get rid of you all and still operate fine. Probably better actually. Can anybody sum up one reason that any of... — read more
I don’t see anyone making a thread about how American Well Services bought Pioneer Well Services. I left the company a few months ago for a completely different industry, but I’ve heard about this. Wondering what the atmosphere is like now and what... — read more
It wasn’t until I started looking for a new job that I realized how much I had essentially lost my competitive edge here. Spending more than five years here means losing marketable skills. Unfortunately, I wasn’t aware of it while I was nice and... — read more
Don't go to work under the assumption that anyone would care about what you contributed to the company for more than a weekend.
