End This

I know this is the only way I have to make a living w salary this good. However, I can’t stop hoping that this thing finally implodes. Just rip off this rotten old band aid and let me bleed out...

I worked for them for a while before the layoffs. Coming from the gas industry that was already pretty lean, I was astounded at the "just throw money at it" mentality Whiting had at production. I know it takes a lot of money to drill wells, but wow... just wow, the waste was crazy. Contracted everything, did very little in house, very few people there with real production knowledge, management suuuuuucked and wouldn't hear anything that was suggested to improve processes, young and inexperienced field hands. Good company a few years ago, not now.

i have dealt with this company for 25 years. One of the worst operators in the business. always has been. They following the footsteps of CHK.

both very well deserve bankruptcy and empty halls. AND then the valiant hard working employees
can move on to much greener fields,

Does Angry Bird actually work there? It’s hard to believe any current and former employees still have their heads in the sand at this point.

The sooner they declare bankruptcy, the sooner we can start over fresh.

Please sell assets to someone good.

It is an absolute shame what the CEO and his crew have done to this company. If even a fraction of the rumors I have heard about some of the salaries that were handed out are true it is no wonder this is a sinking ship. I was hopeful when they brought on the new CFO and she cleaned up the mess a little bit but I don't know what to expect now.

They won't take off the old bad-aid they will just keep covering it up with another one, and just like mommy would say everything will be ok.Well we found out what ok is to them dump us in the street so they can clean us up in pick the patch. lie after lie I feel for the people still left, they may not have a severance when they get thrown to the street. good luck
