HR? Is it not obvious who's calling the shots?

At what company can you get the highest performance rating and a 2% raise after nothing for over 2 years? What a joke.

I bet I know who got more than 2%! The executives.

And did you see how much your old stock is worth? Criminals.

Why is it when your manager make decisions about promotions, raises, reorganization’s, etc., you blame and want to overhaul HR? It demonstrates your ignorance on how Denbury operates. Shouldn’t it be #overhaulCEO or #overhaulCFO?

The crazy part of the new denbury is.... they think they are transparent! This place is so full of secrets and back door bu—t.

How I miss the days when D was about character, integrity and transparency. When the how mattered not just the who. When support teams were appreciated and jerks let go. Those were the days... #overhaulHR

He’s been in charge all along. How else do you explain financially ruining a company and not only staying in your job but also being rewarded for it?

It was all approved the same day as all of the promotions.

I agree with the post below.

And to add insult, how do you get high performance ratings and then pennies for a raise after nothing for a couple of years? It is getting to the point where the negatives outweigh the positives.

I very much agree with these statements...."so sitting in the office building all day is just outdated" and "Seems dumb to move people to low-wall cubes during a pandemic" (not trying to start a political banter about masks and vaccines!!)
I love my job for a variety of reasons but am preparing myself to start looking elsewhere. The reasons being are to seek better compensation and for better management (at the department level). I am waiting to see what the new environment will be like before I begin looking in earnest. With that being said, I realize that Denbury won't care either way what I do. I don't think anyone at the company has noticed or cares about the effort I, or many others have put into their jobs. I take a great deal of pride in my work and I am PRESENT on a daily basis. I don't normally need or expect a pat on the back for my work performance. I guess the fact I made it through the four or five rounds of layoffs should be enough of a reward. But at the same time, though my role in my department has expanded and grown, it has not been recognized by management at the department level. I don't know if it is because no one cares or they truly just don't notice. I think a lot of it has to do with the fact that G & A roles are not highly valued. It's a tough call because there are many "pros" to working at Denbury.

If you had a change in compensation it was communicated. That’s how it is now, no transparency company wide.

Let’s face it, for a few years the communication at Denbury is lacking. You have to ask your Manager for information which they typically can not provide because they’ve also not been informed. When I joined Denbury, one of the things I appreciated was communication which no longer exists.

Most oil and gas companies are not WFH, Denbury wants to be progressive but they also want you under their thumb to micro-manage. I have been told there will be no flexibility on this. Seems dumb to move people to low-wall cubes during a pandemic.

I believe good people will leave for more progressive companies. I see how others have handled the last year and I’m disappointed, there’s been little to no communication, town halls, etc.

Where is HR leadership??

I think the mob is happy with the growth and where the company is headed but frustrated how it’s handled the people so far post bankruptcy. We have barley heard a peep on compensation from management. Communication is never transparent and always leaves you guessing to fill in the blanks. I know I’m not alone on this and there are a lot of individuals at Plano that feel the same way but will not speak up when it comes to Denbury not offering more flexibility. I haven’t missed a beat in my job in a year working completely remote and in no way do I want to keep working remote full time. To ask families and spouses to go back to basically how it was a year ago is pretty sad to me. Everything has changed for families no matter if they have school aged kids or no kids. People working with flexibility and spending more time with family because less commuting or wasted interruptions at work is a wonderful thing and are much happier than before. We work in a digital age and most people work in the evenings or weekends as needed so sitting in the office building all day is just outdated. Just no reason extra stress should be added about that when it is really easy to adapt the company a little bit better for the future. A lot of companies I know at least gathered feedback from employees to make a decision regarding future work schedules. I know oil and gas has old school thinking more than others but I was hoping our company would take a more cutting edge approach for our people rather than taking a back seat and let others lead the way as we follow what the “industry” will do. I really enjoy my work and working for Denbury and I hope I never have to leave over a dumb thing like a more flexible schedule. Trash this post if you want but I just want ed to voice an opinion and help share the opinions of others that will never feel comfortable enough to voice it.

Not sure where the complaining is warranted. This is a healthy sign that the company is growing and adding new branches to accommodate further growth. I guess the mob will never be happy...

Old Denbury had more than double the people...there’s a lot of bloat.

Noticed someone missing from these promotions and all the others, must not be in favor anymore.

Post ID: @1ydq+1adKP8wS

Hey still not many directors, senior directors, etc. So if it's still Manager, (optionally another Manager), VP, (optionally a Sr. VP), then C-level it isn't as many levels as the old Denbury used to be. Once you start adding Supervisors and Directors in there too then you can start worrying about bloat
