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
NE APP Latest raises and promotions…. There is Damn near more managers, foremen, and asst foremen than there is field hourly employees… Still promoting the lazy, whiney cry baby dou$&?bag$ that have done nothing but bi--h for 5 years. This one... — read more
It’s 2002 and I can’t believe I have tell you this. The Golden Rule applies at work and what starts with and “L” and ends in a “Y” will come full circle this week for staff that is not earning their paycheck. This will be from leaders to land to IT. ... — read more
I used to really love working here but now this no longer looks like the company I applied for a few years ago. There seem to be more and more dissatisfied people than those who are still happy to be working here?
Even with soaring natural gas prices, we are still too top heavy with admin and leaders. Spring cleaning is imminent.
Ok folks. Here goes. We all know about the dichotomy in these organizations of “field vs corporate”….. blah blah blah….. “Field operates like the wild Wild West..”…..”Corporate is so out of touch and bloated with unnecessary fat….” Well, it’s time... — read more
Just read the earnings transcript instead of listening to the pastor drone on and on about greed is sin. Blah blah blah. WJW and CC are not getting this by any of us in the know. If I read it once I read it a dozen times that each used the words... — read more
See earlier thread. Gets approval this week. Not clear on implementation and will pass along what I can.
I was laid off in 2020 and so glad as my career is better off today. I love this website and this board. I know the crew of 6 that post their heart and soul on this board. I still talk with them regularly. One of them asked me if Bill was a fish... — read more
That’s the code (not the Grand Parkway) for next layoff. If you guessed 99 is total # for 2022 then pick up your prize in a white legal size envelope. Thanks for playing along.
Please check this board each day. I can’t say when but this week there will be a BIG ANNOUNCEMENT! Trust the source!!
Is the day. Nice and clean. You will NOT, I repeat, you will not be getting paid for Tuesday. 1/31 is last pay day. 2/28 is last day of benefits. No severance.
Ever since the first big layoff in 2016, oh my 6 years ago, I sat in my office and laughed at those poor suckers. Each layoff since laughed even harder. Going to be laughing again REAL soon.
🙂 or 😖
Hear ye, hear ye, read all about it. Way is up for “CEO of the Year - Independent Operators” for 2021. Just how, why and how? Can someone explain?
Please don't scare people for no reason. If there were to be any layoffs this week, they would have happened by now. I don't remember that SWN ever had layoffs later in the week. It's either Tuesday or Wednesday. If you are among those who were... — read more
SWN down 40% since he took over as CEO ($7.65 to current). Way over his head! He has the reverse midas touch. How can investors and Board be okay with that? He is a laughing stock within the industry. Other CEOs can't stand him - esp those that... — read more
Well, it should be an interesting week. I have it on good authority that layoffs are a go for this week. White packets being assembled in the HR war room. No WARN required based on numbers. Godspeed to all.
Count me in! I am ready for “5 buck Bill” to hit the unemployment line. He has ruined our once great company starting WAY back in 2016 as CEO. Correct if I am wrong but the stock price has historically gone down down down with him as a CEO. I am... — read more
I have it on good authority that the talk about furloughs was a feint - inside job - to distract from the February freeze of pay raises, travel, hiring, interns, and bonuses - delayed until third quarter. Sounds like layoffs won’t happen if the... — read more
