Well they are slowly picking away, they must think it’s a better strategy to drop people slowly, instead of a big group. They are dumping some really good people again, just to replace them with ones who won’t speak up. Place is sh-t new name old... — read more
I bet they have monitors in the employees now. No one will speak or say anything. Typical speech telling everyone how wonderful it’s going to be. See who had rub burns on their knees lol
Is that the new name? What’s the body count? What did severance packages look like?
A merger of equals means that employees at both companies will be equally fu---d. I'm going to assume that some areas will be more affected than others at each company, but overall, there'll be layoffs all around. I don't think anybody can consider... — read more
So with the oasis-whiting merger, who is going to be the ones in control?
Are we going to have more cuts in January?
How is such blatant age discrimination allowed? And why is nobody suing the company over it?
Incompetence is one of the main qualifications to be promoted. Being good at your job will only lead to more work and nothing else. No promotion, no bonus, no proper raise. It seems smarter to do nothing all day but kiss the right a-s. That seems to... — read more
Well here it comes soon they will be moving people around the board in their secret little chess game. Knocking off one pawn or knight to replace it with another, selling red tail you know they will laying off and moving some of their key spooners to... — read more

So supposed rumors are Marathon is in the hunt. That makes sense with the cards they hold, hush hush could be a big new deal and everyone will find out at the click of the heels. Guess we will wait for the great Oz to reveal the outcome.
Guess everyone got scared. Sure got quite real quick around here. No more open forum can’t speak your mind, was actually nice to hear people vent, but maybe they buttered the toast and everyone is happy again. Guess just sit and wait until the next... — read more
Starting to hear the rumblings of an oasis/whiting merger. Who does everything think will be running it.
Hello everyone. I'm a freelance journalist in the Denver area and some of my work as been published in a local business journal. One of my colleagues is currently working on a story about favors and protection within the HR department. While that... — read more
When the next round of layoffs happen, the guy in charge of HR will stare coldly into your eyes while an outside consultant reads a prepared statement explaining your severance package benefits. No compassion and no remorse. He wants to see how much... — read more
Reading these posts it's obvious that so many of you despise your jobs. If that's the case, why don't you quit? Nobody is forcing you to be here. I like my job. I like having a job when the economy is far from ideal. But if I didn't, nothing could... — read more
Honestly, sometimes flipping burgers at McDonalds seems like a preferable option to this place. I'm so tired of the constant stressing, politics, nepotism over merit, corrupt managers... It never ends. I don't see how things could get much worse than... — read more
I always knew that HR was never there because of the employees, but I hoped that maybe in some cases they could be a place of support and help for us. What a mistake. They simply do not take our interests into account at all. I had a little problem... — read more
This has all got to come crashing down soon. They laid off their technical people in operations. They promoted people to those positions who honestly don't know what the fahk they are doing. Every efficiency they had gained over the past years... — read more
I survived the last RIF after only being here for two years. I've never experienced anything like this. The company has been in constant disarray since the day I hired on. For all the talk about "culture" and "values" since I got hired on, they... — read more
Every time they’ve had a layoff they end up with more managers and less doers. The level of incompetence is staggering. Get out as soon as you can. The ship is on fire, it’s sinking, and the fuel tank is on the verge of explosion. There is life after... — read more
What's new on possible February cuts?
Since I started working here three years ago my work has more than doubled - at no extra pay of course. The management just keeps piling up more on my already full plate. It's not enough that people who leave are not replaced - they're adding to the... — read more

No one is posting anything is everyone just to disgusted to talk about it anymore. Ya I would be to. It’s a dead end road, but it’s a job right. Just waiting it out until I can get hired on and get the f$&( out of this sh?(( hole .
Has anyone heard anything about the next round?
Shouldn’t be a surprise but rumor is Whiting hired outside help for layoffs again.
Holly should be giving a thank you speech to everyone for making him a lot of money. He can sit there and say “ ohh well I tried “ thanks as he sits there with that sh– eating grin. Now everyone can sit back and wait for all the changes, good luck... — read more

Well they blamed Mr. Volker saying he was the reason the ship was sinking. I guess that theory was debunked, now the high and mighty Holly really knocked a hole in the side of the ship. In fact looks like he removed the whole floor, to many hired... — read more
