How many folks in Houston are going to be affected with the sale of the Fayetteville?


The real winners today were the Fayetteville shale employees. They will be released from their captors that shove safety program after safety program down their throats. Whether they continue employment with the new owners or are severed in the... read more

Board is Diverse - Way says so

From IR book — “Board diversity — 37.5% diverse (gender, nationality, ethnicity)” Who cares? Seems to be kinda a stretch to advertise this. Has anyone seen our Board? Doesn’t fall into the diverse discussion on any front.

Layoff Land Administration Folks

That’s right! Keep laying off Land Admin folks and let’s see how SWN succeeds with PO royalty owners who aren’t getting their paperwork done. No, not a good plan. Stop the politics with layoffs. You need a healthy Land Admin team to keep royalty and... read more

Office furniture

I hear there is going to be a “garage sale” of sorts to purge some of the unneeded office furniture, including those fancy high tech desks and chairs. Anyone have details? Are they selling for pennies on the dollar?

Ground control to Major Tom

So what was the big announcement yesterday afternoon at Corporate ? Hearing it happened, but little details trickling out here to the important people making it happen. I hear my livelihood was bartered for a pack of M&M’s... Someone clue us in!


For those of you still left at SWN, i ran across this quote today and it seemed germane to your situation: A bad boss can take a good staff and destroy it, causing the best employees to flee and the remainder to lose all motivation. Happy Monday!

This was the big mistake

Houston made the mistake of continuing to invest money into drilling the Fayetteville Shale and purchasing the WV assets when they should have stuck a fork in the Fayetteville Shale 5 years ago and passed on the WV deal. If they were smart, they... read more

SWN Stock

I really think I will sell a share of my SWN Stock today and go buy myself a cheeseburger. I will not be able to afford a drink by selling just one share but the cheeseburger will be a treat. Personally I blame the downfall of this once great company... read more

Bankruptcy ?

Any truth to the FS being parted off and having a bankruptcy auction?

Rehiring of older employees

Does Southwestern rehire employees who were laid off before? This does not affect me, but I was curious in general. We've lost some of our best employees in the past several layoffs rounds so I was wondering if they would be taken back if the... read more

Historic Gas Company

SWN is becoming a historic gas company, something you can boast to your grandchildren; they will definitely pause X-Box to hear your repeated stories about SWN. “Did I ever tell you about the time I lost a lease at SWN . . .”

Quarterly Call

So apparently there was a call today and I haven’t seen any comments or insight....

More layoffs in September?

I've heard from two different sources now that we might see another significant round of layoffs sometime in September. Anybody here knows more or anything about it?

Major turnover at corporate office

Major turnover in the corporate office. I heard some people put in their notice the week of the most recent layoffs. For a company that alleges their core strength is their people, they sure don't seem to care about keeping those people. Yup, people... read more

Giving away land in PA

SWN just sold an 11 acre piece of land in PA to the Boro for one dollar, looks like they are getting ready to pull out of PA. They are building a new facility in SW PA probally closing Jane Lew and consolidating both offices (Tunk and Jane Lew) into... read more

I Didn’t Get Laid Off

I didn’t get laid off. I left before the announcement. I worked with some truly great people. I love my new job but I would go back to SWN in a heart beat if I knew it was a stable company. There are so many people still there now and gone that I... read more

Count your blessings

For those no longer with SWN, you really should count your blessings and consider yourself luckier than a two di$& dog! Those that are still there are wondering why, and they’re stuck in the cycle of dysfunction. It’s an ELT $hit show up there.


Wow, this is beyond sad. Just one look at this board and it is obvious there are very few happy and satisfied employees at Southwestern. Shouldn't that be a clue to those on top that something needs to change and it needs to change now? If they only... read more

Morale Boosters

For the people at SWN, you need to have get-togethers, e.g, pot luck luncheons, longer Friday luncheons, meet together at Bare Backs after work. Start having some fun! There should be lots of space now in the office. Have a wine and hors d'oeuvres... read more

Golden Parachute

Before you get all sour grapes, just remember that SWN gave all yall (and in 2016) pretty good packages. Try working somewhere else and see what you get when asked to leave. So those at the top may be preparing their bigger and brighter parachutes... read more

WARN ACT Circumvented

Hearing a lot of noise on these post about "is this it" which is humorous with some additional knowledge. The Warn Act is a federal requirement by the DOL and SWN clearly came up with a layoff scheme to avoid the term "mass layoff". Expect phases of... read more


CHK : $5.32 SWN: $5.29 If this is how I’m graded on my job performance this equals and F - -!

Ethics - Posts Disappear

Makes you wonder what is going on when SWN/Way gets posts pointing to ethical issues deleted AND removes items that have been reported into the Ethics hotline. I had an issue and reported to the ethics site confidentially. After a few days, the case... read more

How to trim the remaining fat

Posted in another thread, but I think this is by far the best description of how to trim the remaining fat without actually hurting the company: Agreed about middle management. But let's make it simple. Start w the VPs. Their salaries are anchors to... read more

Houston building and its future

I am not at swn anymore and it’s been awhile. Is swn using both buildings / towers still especially after recent layoffs? I heard some floors were sort of shut down. Is cafeteria still in use? Gym? Is the formula still on the building and the Vplus... read more

Does this mean the rest of us are safe?

Now that the latest round of layoffs is done, does this mean those of us who are still employed can relax for a while? I haven't seen any rumors that extended past this week, so I am starting to get a bit hopeful about it. It would be nice to not... read more

Town hall

I noticed in the town hall meeting there weren’t any office people or supervisors in DGC let go. This is including the ones that have a field job title but do only office work. Just proof that being in the Damascus office is safer than actually... read more

People picked

Does anyone know how they ended up picking who was doing to be the lucky 200? Never had a bad evaluation and still got the ax.

SWN Managers and HR Leadership

First time poster The SWN managers are way too talented to let go of. Besides, who’s going to make out in the stairwells if they get cut? Makes you really question the judgement of the higher ups that put those managers in place. Can the stairwells... read more

So sorry for those left behind.

Im so sorry for those left behind. The work will be grueling. The atmosphere toxic like always. Long hours for sure. And say good bye to those 9/80s. Im sure the managers that are left behind will pull their weight. LOL. Its going to be a long hard... read more
