This was long time coming

Although it is a shame to see another Marcellus company disappear, and a few decent people lose there jobs R.I.C.E. employees had to be blind not to see this coming. I mean there has rarely been a company out there with so much smoke blown up there... — read more

I have heard that maybe only 20% of rice folks will land at EQT. So if they layoff 80%, then they will have to file the WARN notice w the state. That will be posted online and indicate how many will be affected and when. The warn notice needs to be... — read more

Non compete

Does EQT have a non compete clause for all employees? Or just specific positions. Land and Engineers? I have heard those have non compete clauses.

10% of Rice

It's interesting that EQT would only take 10% of Rice. Rice developed into a large successful company, quickly that part of it has to be because of their employees. Wonder why EQT is not impressed with Rice employees??

Severance Package

How many are still there?

I left Rice Energy before the acquisition but I know there were some layoffs at that time on our side. I was wondering how many people ended up being shown the door and how many left on their own since then? From what I've heard, the place hasn't... — read more

Good Luck to everyone. Not sure where everyone will end up until after the smoke clears and dust settles. It has been an interesting ride.
