Topics regarding layoffs at Southwestern Energy Co.

SWN following Oxy ideas

You heard it here first. Oxy notified employees of major pay cuts throughout the organization, including an 81% reduction for the CEO. You think our CEO can swallow his pride and do the same? Hmmm. After thinking about it, there’s no way! SWN will... —  read more 

How many left?

How many people still work for SWN? Wasn't SWN home to 2200 at its peak?


Anyone notice that Private Equity Firm Blackrock just bought a 6% stake in Chesapeake? They already own 16% of Southwestern. Now Chesapeake is working with Rothschild and Intrepid to restructure the debt. Sounds like we may have a merger.

Non-Essential Employees

Non-Essential employees must stay home per President Trump. Management must step up and conform to the formula - Right people doing the right things. At this point, profit is immaterial.

Silence from SWN leadership on Covid-19

Swn swn swn Lack of communication and lack of preparedness from Leadership sums up the current state of the company. Lack of real leadership. It's very telling when schools and local governments can make decisions more swiftly. Nill pay will... —  read more

Is there a mole that reports in this board?

I’ve gone back and looked at many of the threads over the last several months. While it might appear it’s one or two “jokers” - who are pretty funny by the way, their predictions have been almost spot on. I’m wondering if we have a mole situation? ... —  read more 

For Those Of Us Left

Animal Farm

I just read it again for the first time in 20 years. I couldn't have written a better analogue to SWN culture if I tried.

Layoffs in rearview, Bonus outlook?

Hey everyone. In case you didn’t know, SWN had layoffs on Tuesday. The CEO is just doing his job. I can’t blame him. He’ll pull us out of this tailspin. It’s just temporary. Now, I’m hoping because they clipped all the deadweight, our bonuses should... —  read more 

Why is HR still there

Town Hall next Thursday afternoon?

I just got an invite from my Team Assistant for a company wide town hall next Thursday afternoon. Seems like a strange time to have this. Could this mean layoffs are that morning, 2/6? Hmmm.

Were there layoffs yesterday?

Some people mentioned there were layoffs yesterday in another thread - is this true? I haven't heard anything outside of this forum.

I was laid off in 2018

Looking back, the next 3 months were the best of my life. It was like I took a leak and SWN was gone. I spent time with my family, traveled, had a few job interviews and by the time I accepted an offer, I had a salary 15% higher than what I was... —  read more

Remaining Inventory

How many remaining wells can pull a regular (nonSwn) pvi of 1.3 across both divisions with current commodity prices?


You need to give the CEO a break. Any young CEO will look back on his career and, if he’s honest, will admit he made mistakes. That’s the risk of recruiting a young CEO. And perhaps he inherited some things that he wasn’t responsible for.

Changes on the horizon!

Folks, at long last... the changes we’ve all been waiting for.... they’re on the horizon. The BOD has finally had enough! The results are just not there. We can’t keep blaming it on the glut of of supply. The lack of know how by the CEO and his... —  read more
