Well the only CR I knew there was good ole Chip Reamer and he did dress up kinda purty for Brad . Whatever it’s all done know, they even screwed us on our severance packages. A lot of good it does to be fully vested then they busy you out the door. Good luck to the next batch. With the new President things are going to get sh–ty quick. I heard the last people severance was really bad.

As far as the person who wasn't following: I was on here earlier and there was a post that was removed that explained the CR theory as not being Chip. The person was a vendor that worked with the company and knows the situation. Sounds like cronyism at it's finest.
Here's the post in a nutshell: CEO brings child wonder over to new company. Boy doesn't have credentials but rises through the ranks even after CEO is removed. This is what happens when CEO hires his buddies in the C-suite and his buddies stay after he's canned.
I heard when Brad came over, he brought on his APC boy toy as 'chief of staff'. Is this who you people are talking about?
There must be a post missing, I'm not following? I don't think these were about Chip.
I second that last one. Great salesman. Great presentation skills. Excellent use of corporate buzzwords. Absolutely zero practical oil and gas experience. He wouldn't know a rig if it fell on him. Proof that it's not what you know, it's who you know. When the oil and gas industry has their 'come to Jesus' moment (and I think we are getting close), all the middle managers will have no value and technical knowledge will be necessary to survive. All those folks that were laid off will be hot commodities. The good old boys will be on the streets next time.... but their resumes will look pretty. The ones that survive will be the ones that kept their bibs on. Keep your heads up, former Whiting folks. Your time will come.
