I wish I had left a year or so ago when our competitors were desperate for top talent like me and throwing high pay and sign-on bonuses at candidates. Now we're back to where were before: few good open positions, no responses after interviews, and... — read more
Is SWN the worst run major E and P company in modern era. Hey Enron ain’t got nothing on us. Just think of all the failed New Ventures, useless but costly reorganizations, and horrible decisions made in the last ten years or so. Name one company... — read more
What’s the common denominator, folks. Well, I’ve got news for you. Or do I? Your CEO is one incompetent bo-b!! This metric is telling. Almost not possible to be trading shares less than the NG futures. There should be no executive bonuses or salary... — read more
This is a great news. I was just informed of a permanent WFH situation, but without a paycheck going forward. Anyone else get a notification this morning?
So who’s with me? I’m going to be quiet quitting now. I’m so tired of getting only minimal raises and working more than the bare minimum, only to make the bosses richer. I need to be compensated for any time more than 40 hours per week. We deserve... — read more
Got this WFH Extension. Did anyone else in the corporate office get an official extension till 3/31/23? My group did and I was shocked seems like we are the only people staying home till 3/31/23... from what I heard everyone else went back or will be... — read more
Attention all SW Energy employees. It has been mandated that we all do the right thing given the situation out in the field on our drill rigs and Frac crews. We know this “thing” has spread - originating on Jill Pays annual pilgrimage to you know... — read more
Best perk at Southwest …WFH. Some days, actually most days… I wake up and I leave my mouse moving and I do nothing all day. I used to work hard but I realized that not only was there no reward but actually observed and experienced first hand that it... — read more
The managers and above here are very talented at destroying any enthusiasm an employee has for their job. I loved my job until I came here. Perhaps the managers directors and c suite are the ones who should ask themselves how much people here really... — read more
BIG 2022 ORGANIZATION ANNOUNCEMENT Big Org Announcement Next Week!! Check Back Here For Advance Details!! When You Find Out Keep The Gossip To A Minimum!! Stay Tuned For A Few Surprises!!!
I seent these acronym posted several places in our campus. Does anyone know what this means? Curious. Obviously the Code 8222 was a bust, mostly. Now I’m curious. Must mean something like “why should I ….” Can anyone crack the code? TIA!
Read it Can anyone tell from recent transcript how we are doing for the long haul? Success? Layoffs? Growth? Decline? Say one say all
I stopped expecting any improvement here. Complaining will get me nowhere, so I'm mostly focused on looking for a new job and I hope I'll find it before they lay me off. The problem is that I have been looking for better options for a very long time... — read more
Good morning. Can any one confirm layoffs may be postponed that are for this Tuesday? Gut feels says YES.
Losing sleep tonight. Not sure why. I know in the next few weeks lives are going to be changed as new opportunities open with layoffs. Going to drop a prayer card at church tomorrow for those whose livelihoods will change.
Saw this in an email. Code name 8222 so this is next layoff date 8/2/22.
In office early today. Overheard some C suite guys talk with amusement about a special BOD meeting. Seems odd. Is change underfoot.
Weren't there supposed to be layoffs today? Another rumor gone wrong? Or has something happened that I somehow missed (which I seriously doubt)?
Hope everyone has enjoyed their summers so far. This week will change everything. Get ready. Buckle up. The fun is just about to start.
Howdy all. RSG will equal layoffs by end of year. To that I say as a member of the WV production team I contribute RSG every day around 7AM. Usually purge a big ol breakfast made from scratch by wife or when my GF is not. Have been told that my RSG... — read more
Happy Monday (not so) Funday! Well, here’s the deal, folks. In this time of pandemic uncertainty, we’re moving several folks to “WFH” status, actually with the W part removed. This really just means “from home” and stuff. The work part won’t be... — read more
Thanks to Mr Way, he’s finally got our stock going in the right direction. I’ll be able to retire soon. Can’t wait.
With inflation through the roof and our industry clearly in the scope of the White House, what is the long term specter on significant raises around here before 4th of July? I, for one, only received 6% raise this year, which is half of the inflation... — read more
Have not been on this site since early 2020 pre Covid. Thought I would have been let go by now but nope cashing a check. With the rumor mill buzzing around the office I had to check this site waiting on my son’s Little League game today. Holy... — read more
So was at an industry engineering conference this week. I’m fairly new to Southwest so thought I could get some insight into our company from a peers perspective. Someone said rather openly that our CEO was quote “light in the loafers”. What does... — read more
Management is using every opportunity to show employees how little they respect us and how much they don't care about us and they're shocked when productivity goes down. It makes me laugh how out of touch and incompetent everybody at every management... — read more
Rumor has it that Musk is inspired by all of Ways layoffs (7 in the last 7 years) and he will be doing the same model for Twitter once he owns it. Seems logical, right? Way and Musk are two peas in a pod!
Just heard from a legit source we are 2 weeks out from layoffs. It is a really big deal given the environment. Start paying attention to those around you. Be careful who you share this news with cause if you reference this board you will likely be... — read more
Hi all. Didn’t know where else to go. I’ve had one interview with SWN in Spring for IT position. I passed out with PhD from University of Texas. I come from Bombay but in US for 7 years prior to PHD study. I want to know what work life culture is... — read more
Got a copy of our SWN Natural Gas Forward and yes it is a little rough but works as TP. How many jobs could have been saved and not laid off cause of this? Still baby drill!!
Standing in elevator lobby just now. In earshot of handful of SVP. They were talking cryptic but one was LOL about having more empty office space. Read LAYOFFS!!!!
Keep it clean folks. Our senior leader caused our stock to rise. Yup he did said no one ever. The only thing that has risen is our total layoff number and increased egg frittata costs.
The attrition rate since the start of 2022 speaks for itself.
Both are happening now
Folks, there is a lot of conjecture on this website. I know. Sometimes these guys have hit the jackpot and guessed right. But this week it’s real! Going to hit the shared services the hardest. If you’re far from the we’ll head, then you’re most at... — read more
This thread is a call to former employees aka alumni who were laid off or quit cause they got tired of the insanity rampant since 2015. Those of us who remain, like me, aren’t sure what to expect post SWN. Tell us your stories. We know there are... — read more
Employees have always been the backbone of this company but it feels like the leadership has conveniently decided to ignore that. They've created such an awful atmosphere that the most talented people who've been here for a decade or more are... — read more
