I was one of the 37 Specialists severed, I was topped out salary-wise at Grade 3. By looking at the ages let go, the vast majority were mid 40's - 60's.

Specialist and Advisor titles were hit hardest.

I was one of the Specialist given notice in November 2016. In the end it was a blessing in disguise. While I collected a nice severance package, I started a new job six weeks later.....when a higher salary. I feel for those who may be looking for a new position soon. Most of the good positions have now been filled. In that vein, my experience at Hess was not a good one, overall.

Yes. I was one of the Advisors hit. Before the layoffs, the mentioned they were really trying to take out layers of management and streamline areas of control. Although managers and directors were hit, it was senior technical personnel who were hit hardest. They also basically did not reorganize management at all.
