For those that survived and still complaining, please quit and leave already. Those that are staying and still want to work, don't need your bad mojo. So you didn't get the severance, boo fcuknig who. Atleast you still got a job. Ask those that got... read more
Topics regarding layoffs at Pioneer Natural Resources Co.
I worked there for five years. Got a text while on vacation that my severance package was being mailed to me. Phone remotely wiped, can't get to personal items in my office. No way to treat loyal employees. Glad i got the package!!! My department was... read more
No matter how much in a bad position the company is in and no matter how many layoffs happen, the companies in our industry are always in demand for workers, especially field guys and contractors. I can’t wait to see who will accept a job at Pioneer... read more
Pioneer slashes jobs at home and in the Permian, putting Wall Street ahead of people https://www.dallasnews.com/opinion/commentary/2019/05/24/pioneer-slashes-jobs-at-home-and-in-the-permian-and-wall-streets-not-impressed
Just look around you - what's the one thing you notice? The faces that are looking back at you are getting MUCH younger after every layoff, and older employees are few and far between. Is there really nothing to be done about this? It's certainly not... read more
For those of us who do NOT plan on being here much past march award the august extra bonus doesnt matter. Extra paycheck is okay though
I just wonder for how long. I'm 52, so I know my days are numbered. In all honesty, I wish I was among those laid off. At least they know where they stand and what their next step is going to be. I just tuck again - not knowing what tomorrow will... read more
What happened to the comms team? They still around?
Excuses are easy to find and the industry is pretty turbulent, especially in today’s economy. I can understand that, but nobody can tell me it needed to be done in this manner. Were cut’s in this degree really necessary?
It seemed like pioneer might be headed in the right direction. There were definitely too many employees but the people that have been making all the wrong stupid decisions remain with the company. The problem went from quantity to quality. The... read more
does anyone know what the severance package consisted of?
How are things looking for people over fifty in our industry right now?
Did you notice that news are all over the Ford layoffs and we barely got a mention in the past two days? I understand that Pioneer laid off fewer employees, but still, layoffs are layoffs. I guess we are not as interesting or as attractive subject to... read more
Walking into the office to find people I worked with for so long gone... I'm not looking forward to it. I guess survivors guilt is a real thing. I truly wish all the best to all of those who were let go yesterday. May you find a better job in a... read more
Pioneer folks drinking shots! Got the package and an offer all in the same day!!!
I've been there and it's not fun. But you will come out better and wiser for this experience.... even tho it doesn't seem that way right now. If you work in oil & gas you're going to be laid off in your career... maybe multiple times. It just goes... read more
I guess some of us can use this tip: See only posts that recently had replies - Big Blue Button Below (BBBB) For new folks here, there is a large "ACTIVE" button right above the first thread - you can use it to see what posts had recent replies... read more
I was leaning towards wanting the package. I got it (and was surprised), and now it hurts like hell now that it's real. Many good friends were made here, and for the first 5 years of my career it was incredible. Unfortunately the last few haven't... read more
Thanks for the 6 figure payout. I'll take it. Peace.
As far as I can tell this is turning out to be massive. Any Idea how many people were let go today. Did any number circe around today as a rumor? Any way we can even determine this number. I know, of course, nobody is going to officially announce... read more
Was a great run and an awesome place to work! I am very thankful for the opportunity, the insight to what may come and the ability to plan my family for the possibility of what happened. Thank you PXD. !
Lasted about 5-10 min. Went over the ISP. Gave me a few min to pack up a few things and then was walked to the elevator in the parking garage because I chose to schedule a meeting with the Employment placement as opposed to meeting right then. Pretty... read more
And it looks like it'll last throughout the day.
Have there been any changes? Does anybody know for sure what the package will look like this round?
i've been laid off 4 times in a 35 yr career. it doesnt get any easier but you will survive and grow
I'm just saying. I might get laid off today. But if I'm not, if I was given a chance to volunteer than somebody who actually wants to stay here would have been able to. In any case, I just wanted to wish everybody good luck - and that those who want... read more
Mine: Best = pay, benefits, relationships with good people. Worst = silos and EGOS
I have heard I will likely get the severance tomorrow. If so I want to say something positive on this overwhelmingly negative place. Pioneer gave me the stability to grow my family during an oil and gas downturn, the work life balance to care for... read more
I heard everything is happening tomorrow. I was told today to bring my stuff into the off tomorrow.
What’s the plan tomorrow? Where is earliest HH?
I feel for you guys. I went thru this during the dark days of 2015 and ended up with a real weird browser history. Some things you can't unsee. Anyhow, good luck to everyone and I'd give a long thought about switching industries to something that is... read more
Rip the freaking band aid off already. This is driving me and my family crazy. We have no idea how to plan. I kind of want to get the package (that's what she said).
What happens with health insurance once the employee has been laid off? What kind of options do we have?
I'm getting mixed info on when this round will end - some people claim it'll be done tomorrow while some say we have a full week of layoffs to look forward to. In all honesty, I'd be the happiest if it was all done today and tomorrow. Not sure how... read more
Lot of rumors circulating, but I don’t see a lot of people stating that they experienced layoffs today. I aware of the times and the state that the company is in, so if layoffs didn’t happen today, we are not in any less danger tomorrow. Aside for... read more
