From the email my work friend received from HR detailing their specific return to work details: ..... “All employees who are returning to work and remaining with the organization have been notified by email with specific instructions and new... — read more
Topics regarding layoffs at Southwestern Energy Co.
Nothing else to really say. Layoffs going to be occurring this week. All field offices and Spring. Virtual layoffs in Spring. Managers may be doing it in group setting on Zoom. Pink slip packages will be emailed.
LAYOFFS DELAYED BY AT LEAST ONE WEEK. I REPEAT, layoffs delayed by at least one week I’ve been told by an insider “in the know”. We should plan on layoffs the week of Jan 25 which will symbolically correspond to the same week of the 2016 “SWN... — read more
A few months ago I stopped worrying about layoffs since I had no choice. It affected my stress levels and affected my health. I realized there was no point in it. If it happens (and it will) there is nothing that can be done about it. Instead I... — read more
This is beyond priceless. A friend of mine (former coworker) is going to petition city to rename SWN drive in Conway to Flywheel Energy Drive. Anyone want to sign the petition?
Tough scene on Energy Drive this week! Happy New Year! Not so happy layoffs! Good luck everyone.
If a smaller PA based E&P buys us in 1Q will we get a chance to relo? Asking for my Spring friends!
Less than two weeks remain until the mass layoffs. Some colleagues say that we should look at things positively, that is, we should be happy that we will finally be leaving this company. It doesn't comfort me because I’ve left my best years here and... — read more
I know what I am gonna do with the bonus that was dropped in my bank account today. Do you know what you will do? Thank you Chairman and CEO Bill Way!!!
What happened to the investigation of the kick backs paid to members of Land from Purple Land Management, Holland Land, Percheron, Western Land Services, TS Dudley, Honor Resources, etc.?
I have become highly expert at making PowerPoint presentations. I have successfully turned horrible news into favorable results with many years of PowerPoint training. I have presented to many levels of management, fooling the brightest with my color... — read more
Got an email tonight by mistake as my name is similar to another in the address book. With HP moving to Houston, we are moving out of Spring in mid 2021. They are paying a premium in cash for our building. Moving all tenants out. Betting we all have... — read more
Been told that this week supervisors can layoff up to 2 people from their team if needed. No quota just a little preemptive housecleaning. Thinking is to cut loose low performers to save some bonus money. Makes sense. This does not change the fact... — read more
This is a good news bad news thread. So here goes: Good news is no layoffs in December. Bad news is layoffs in January 2021 will be eerily similar to 2016 layoffs both in scope and scale. I made it this far but.... Good news is severance... — read more
Extra! extra! Read all about it! There is a fire sale going on and SWN is at the top of the list. If you’re interested in purchasing a “poor to very poor” performing oil and gas company that is starving for leadership, innovation and adequate... — read more
Check back here after this week. I know of at least 6 people (yes current employees) that post to this board and they have collectively figured out where we will pivot to in 2021. Btw, I am not one of those 6 and yes my paycheck says SWN on it. See... — read more
I was just told Southwestern had a net income of minus 3 billion in the first 9 months, that included operating losses of over 2.6 billion. If this is true, bankruptcy must be just around the corner.
I’m posting this as anonymous, but I’ve read a lot of “parody” on this news forum about Mr Ways issues associated with the washroom. Well, I’m here to tell you this could be true. This past week he and I met some potential business partners who were... — read more
It is highly contested about when the final round of 2020 layoffs will occur. Most want it by mid December. A few new leaders want it to be in January 2021 to be a kinder gentler new SWN. The list of individuals to be laid off are set and it’s... — read more
With Exxon, Chevron and Shell having major layoffs - among many others - it was to be expected that we would follow suit. The downward spiral of O&G (with Covid-19 playing its part) has the majority of huge corporations implementing “cost effective”... — read more
I’m in the northeast. Several folks already let go this morning. Walking out with white envelopes/packets. This isn’t good.
I’m hearing from a reliable source in the organization that a significant event will be happening prior to Halloween. This could me a severance packages for several key individuals in middle management and some of their team members. The scenarios... — read more
Not the largest layoff we have had but some layoffs occurred in NE this AM. Mostly IMHO underperforming or not meeting expectation employees. Not a shocker but it’s another layoff feather in his cap. Expect the same in Spring too BTW! — read more
Early next week will be a “step change” or a “pivot” for us. It may be layoffs or it may not. It may be a newly retired exec or a shuffle of high ranking leaders or not. Perhaps the BOD changes or a merger is announced or not. A certain little bird... — read more
I’m up on the rig in PA, but did I hear correctly the great news for our company? Did the head guy Bill get released? Finally we can realize our full potential! Hip hip hurray!
Hearing from my network here in PA. This merger would mean consolidation to PA. Good news for us up here!! Jobs loss would be in Spring. No wonder why the commercial real estate broker is heavily marketing Spring office.
What is this I hear about putting a new policy in place to have to pay for parking at the Spring office? WTH? If this is a stunt to get people to quit prior to being furloughed or laid off, it’s not funny!
BOD is reviewing a plan to move X number of Spring staff to part time or furlough until year end when new leadership team will determine who stays and goes with MR staff blending into new org. This gets around more “layoffs” for now but....
Has anyone noticed that talented, professional, accomplished people who join SWN almost always end up disappearing in the middle of the night? What is going on at a company where experienced geologists, engineers, government affairs people... — read more
I know there were some layoffs last week Thursday, but from what I can gather it was a really small round. Can anybody confirm that it's over, at least for now? Or should I worry about more such "mini-layoffs" continuing indefinitely? Honestly... — read more
Can anyone confirm? Locations? Numbers? Very nervous camper here in Spring!
Great news, everyone! There will not be layoffs until after the storms pass. I repeat, no layoffs for a while. Our great leader and Chief Pl.. er uh Executive Officer is up for the Greater Houston area “Leaders of Humanity” award as well. Only makes... — read more
What's the SWN count for the recent layoff? They axed several higher up people at MR a couple months ago.
Already talk of keeping more MR staff than us as they are more technical and competent. Unbelievable if this can be confirmed. I have a college buddy at MR and they are hearing the opposite. What????
Will SWN file chap 11 bankruptcy?
I’m hearing through the grapevine that it’s likely next week and that they will look a lot different than previous layoffs with a lot fewer “perks”. Can anyone in the know share please? This site is anonymous so you can’t be tracked. Thanks in... — read more
After that joke of an analyst call yesterday with the typical corporate bull shiitake gibberish by our floundering CEO, the poser of a COO and the complete joke of a CFO, what is the BOD waiting for? Layoff this non PVI talent. Save SWN!!!!
Ok, I’m depressed. Another “peer” company is going to be bought by Chevron, in case you haven’t seent the news. Why can’t it be us? I feel like the lonely, ugly girl at the sock hop that nobody picks to dance with..... what is wrong with SWN that... — read more
Is this the week we shed some non contributing individuals from the NE? Hope so cause it’s a joke up there!
Here’s the deal folks. It will hit you like a ton of bricks, but here it is. If you have not yet been invited back to the office to recommence work, you have unfortunately been laid off. That’s it. Please return company owned equipment to 10000... — read more
