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
Topics regarding layoffs at Southwestern Energy Co.
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
Worst kept secrets (plural) are layoffs coming this week or next AND upper management re-org/retirementS! All this to occur before next BOD meeting.
Wow, just wow! Our CEO is up for another award this year - Innovating Leader of the Year! I can’t believe I work for such a prestigious company! Two years in a row, this guy takes home the hardware! It’s obvious with all of the ideas he’s... — read more
What does SWN Jobs Matter mean to you?
I think I’m getting laid off today. I just have a feeling. Layoffs are never good, especially when you bust your a$$ for something and it isn’t even recognized by anyone. But raises for executives I’m sure. Wow, this once bustling company of nearly... — read more
Does anyone know the address where we return computer equipment for being laid off? What do we return and is work supposed to provide the shipping label? I didnt see any info. about where and what to return for work equipment in the severance... — read more
If anyone thinks that the leadership team at SWN is not at risk of a shareholder lawsuit for mismanagement and de-valuing of shareholder assets, they are wrong. These clowns have risen to the level of mafia con men and women who take huge salaries... — read more
This thread is a call to former employees who were laid off or quit cause they got tired of the insanity rampant since 2016. Those of us who remain, like me, aren’t sure what to expect post SWN. Tell us your stories. We know there are several... — read more
It’s just sad keep hearing Willy saying his Waysims. Does he even realize he’s losing his enterprise executive amazing high level powerful speech? All he talks ‘bout now is his provolone and turkey sandwiches he’s been eating with his buds. So... — read more
Chicken little here! Our industry is in this “real” recession and it is unreal with the sheer volume of layoffs. BP with 10K Chevron with 4000. Halliburton with thousands. OXY, Anasarko, And dozens of others operators and service companies in the... — read more
Potty humor, whining, 6 yr olds on this website that have never have anything meaningful to say who are a large part of the downfall of SWN.
I protested by myself by the SWN building. I got angry and kicked a wall. I injured my foot and went to ER. I explained to the doctor why I injured my foot. He looked at me and said , well, my foot was still injured. So unfair!
One of my contractors called me about an email they got about reducing pricing by at least thirty percent. I might not even have a job in a while and I have to tell them to cut costs. Lolll. Any of the big wigs in Texas reducing their salary and... — read more
The news I’m hearing is somewhat promising considering everything. At least a bit of severance will be offered along with health care for 60 days despite the BOD recommending to cut off after 7 days. I’m hearing approx 65 people in Spring will he... — read more
Just saw an email that we will have a bid for layoff option just like Oxy did a few weeks ago. How about that? I am crunching my numbers so when I can bid I will. Who is with me!!
At least 3 of us so far and we compared severance and from what we can tell better than 2016. No love lost or hard feelings. It’s the biz.
Stay tuned here, to catch all the buzzwords and CEO business school phrases from our CEO. Get it here first, in this historic “live tweet” event. Will there be imminent layoffs due to more cost cutting?
Some truths: the fact that this outfit has essentially been a one trick pony for so long will finally be the death blow of this company. There are no magic levers that can be activated to offset the historic plummet of the oil and gas markets... — read more
Mgmt knows they need us. Don’t want to spend money on severance equals furloughs. When will be before upcoming investor call. Remember this post.
Will the filing this week help us in the long run? Any chance Way is doing this to save his job or hill is he saving the company? What does that mean for existing employees? I’ve heard this is a viable plan if this downturn continues.
Not sure if anyone else received this news as well, but I was laid off today by telephone. Had a regular check in on my activities with my Supervisor and his other reports. Turns out it was just me and him on the phone. He gave me the news quickly... — read more
Confused. I don’t have a UPS label. Is that a good thing?
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 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 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.
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
It’s been rough with layoffs but good info on a Big Announcement is forthcoming. Keep checking here for updates!
Now that we’re done with layoffs for at least the next month or two, the rumor is that there are going to be some imminent organization changes. Too many managers around here. Many people will be demoted and set back 8-10 years in their career it... — read more
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
What’s next for those of us who’ve managed to survived the 4th round of layoffs within the past 5 years??? The work load is the same, but fewer folks...the re-orgs seem like temporary setups to see who’s pulling their weight and spot lighting the... — read more
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.
I hate that people have lost jobs, but it was a necessary move. In fact, I think the cuts should have been steeper. We still have far, far too many VP's and too many layers of management. Executive pay needs to be cut. Engineering is overstaffed. HR... — read more
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
Who got fired in HR? They never seem to let anyone go and have a whole lot of people doing nothing there. Darren left after finding out he had to report to Suzy. She is worthless and so focused on stroking the egos of all the senior leaders its... — read more
