Sure seems like it. Putting happy people under terrible “leaders” and running off the experienced help. Just wait until massive resignations in the Spring. And no open positions? Hmmm. Sounds like brilliant planning. Smh

So what are you going to do about it? More d-mb jokes about Geek Squad? We haven't been an exploration company in a long askssss time and we're now selling our assets left and right, how much of an "E" and "P" are we really? We're more an administrative group than anything else. So yeah, that's why you guys beg and plead for IT to stay and not leave. That's why we demand to not work in the office around so many of you anti-vaxxers. When Apache is sucked dry, we'll get ours and move on and you won't.
Base pay in IT. Many are $125k and higher with the more senior folks at around $150k. Managers make towards $200k. Directors are $200k to $240k. Officer info are publicly available.
I say by April plenty of people will be leaving for better opportunities
The fact that you think most of IT just turns laptops on and off shows everyone how transferable your skills are at understanding how the company we work even works. Most of us do easy support jobs for the apps you think are so important to your jobs. Double laughs for thinking IT people need degrees. Just how many of us do you think actually write code? You better upgrade your computer knowledge so you can learn to apply for unemployment.
Transferable skills? I’m sure the Geek Squad would eat the IT team up. The majority of the IT team has no formal IT and Comp Sci training…good luck transferring anything by having basic knowledge and skills that anyone born 1990 or later has.
If Apache would get rid of the dinosaurs at the company 80% of the IT team could be turfed as they wouldn’t need to teach people how to turn on the power to their laptops.
One of the other IT guys pointed me to this thread this morning so I'll comment to the person who wrote about us thinking we add value. This is laughable because you think any of us really care about adding value. We make good pay and our skills are transferrable to other industries unlike a lot of you. While I personally am not bothered like the other supposed IT poster claims they are, I agree most of us have easy jobs that your managers think needs to be done. We regularly put in wish list items for annual projects mixed in with things that legitimately are needed and your department management types eat it up. Let me throw in a fire starter to start this lovely cold weekend. Many of us have access to regional and international salary information even though it's supposed to be scrambled in our HR systems. You know why? Because you insist on working in emails and spreadsheets with each other before submitting them formally.
LOL @ post below. The IT team apparently thinks they actually adding value serious value to the company…your group does nothing of legitimate value and is easily replaceable. You are a service to the people actually making money…know your role and Go hang out with MM some more.
I'm in IT and whatever BS I hated about Apache is almost all washed out by being able to WFH and not have to deal with most of you ungrateful id--ts in person. Having to explain something over and over to you while keeping a straight face is draining. The only drawback is that I'm not d-mb enough to complain about any of you on any of our apps and cant mock you in the hallways or over lunch as much as before.
My guess is accounting. Some work double and some work half time.
IT & field admins have no reason to complain.
If I was to take a wild guess I’m betting that the comment from the person bragging about working from home for 2 hours a day and watching YouTube came from the IT help desk. They are useless and proud of it.
Why should I quit this place when I finally get to work at home and do a couple of hours of work and then just watch youtube all day where all I have to do is answer chats or emails. In a company where I'm valued by how many messages I send and how quickly I respond to them, I'm the best worker to my d-mbazz supervisor. imma riding this until we go under baby!
Seems like most of the people in EHS want to quit based on the thread below this one.
Don’t use brilliant and planning in the same sentence when you discuss this POS.
Post ID: @1gtr+1eXBiQIQ...hmmm...sounds like you are enjoying your dividends .... probably an anonymous vp lurker.
If you get laid off or quit, we are looking for relators (whistleblowers) who worked in royalty payments, land, accounting, and operations. You could be entitled to millions of dollars in a settlement.
No, the new goal is to get all the babies that are posting on here to quit. It’s a job that you are being paid to do. Shut up and do it!
Over the years, there has always been talk of mass resignations after bonuses are paid. Maybe this will be the year.
Why keep experienced employees with their vesting schedule cashing in every year when you can hire new ones for less pay and equity. Equity that by the time they're vested, we'll be sold off already.
Production is down! that's one way to have a good earnings report for spring!
