Excellent article in the AARP Bulletin, titled Ageism in the workplace. The federal government age discrimination watchdog (EEOC) has a smaller budget today than in 1980 with fewer staff. If you do file a lawsuit, chances are that it will never be... — read more
Topics regarding layoffs at Williams Cos.
Anyone else’s hear that there is a hiring freeze and no bonuses or raises being offered? Chatter of another round of lay offs?
As long as the stock price remains in the green in 2020, layoffs are not likely. If the performance turns red, look out for another show time for the shareholders. Of course they will go after 50 and older white males very strongly. That’s life at... — read more
I do believe Williams has its pluses and minus like any company, it’s just like any other large sized corporation. Anyhow good luck to you did not mean to offend anyone with my posts and apologize if did so, just blowing off some steam and... — read more

At least they aren’t controlled by Keith Meister, who’s performance has been miserable, hats off to the management for at least fending this hostile take over, layoffs would of have been deeper and more brutal, imo. Good... — read more
It occurred to me that Williams is on a wild goose chase for talent in Tulsa and Houston. With the major shale shake out in the Northeast they should be building up theirs offices in the Northeast where the talent pool is, who wants to love to... — read more
TAT a TAT photos on LinkedIn page two weeks ago serving food For people in need. How bizarre, why do they have teams of people looking for talent just after they fired a whole bunch of talented people??? Can anybody answer this?
Can you post a position you just eliminated in the RIF? Doesn’t seem right.
So, here we go again ES construction. Fire people while they are out and illegally? Lol SMH that management is horrible
Mostly in Houston and Tulsa. What did I say, same pattern as 2016.
WTSHTF - William’ s corporate has proven repeatedly not only will they run like chickens 🐓 with no backbone, they will throw as many “Charlie’s” as deemed nescessary (us - working the field widgets) under-the buss to protect their Berkshire buffed... — read more
Williams must be under pressure to lower their gathering fees, with CHK near bankruptcy and Chevron jumping ship. I suspect this has something to do with the job cuts in the Northeast, time will tell but look for a lowering of fees, don’t see how... — read more
Same old game, leadership in construction is terrible. Grudges, lacking communication and talking down to people. Especially those who have been demoted numerous times and still a leader??
Did anyone else see the CVX is selling it’s Appalachian assets?
Williams and Wells Fargo - like two peas in a pod. Wow...
Former employee wondering if anyone had heard plans of cashing people out of the pension that no longer work at Williams younger than 55. I know in 2016, they sent letters to former employees after the RIF to let them roll into another retirement... — read more
Sick of Williams “Co-worker” id–ts Talk’en Loud & Saying Nothing. As butt kissing and illlusions of self-grandifacation work environment that one can possibly be exsposed to. What a daily joke!
The hiring and job reposting has all ready started, gotta keep all these HR recuriters, relocation specialists training personnel, college recuriters and talent hunters, headhunters and consultants busy. It is started in Tulsa on a few months I... — read more
There won’t be any more cuts - not for now. Not yet anyway’s.Williams history is one of repeated stupidity and is the only constant within this company. NEXT is the like clockwork and predictable onslaught of the frenzied hiring phase of cheap... — read more
More Posts about more layoffs. I will predict they will happen if the stock drops and stays below 22 for a few months. These layoffs are a farce and the only purpose is to to keep the shareholders happy and demanding that the executives give up... — read more
Any ideas on how many will be losing their jobs in December? Sad that I'm thinking of this after Thanksgiving, but that's our reality.
Is there any truth to this? Why would the so called leadership do this again? Who would be affected and when?
It is becoming more and more apparent this company is being run by MBA’s, lawyers, bean counters and BS Engineers and HR spin meisters. If that’s the type of company you want to work for, hard off to you. However if you want something elese my advice... — read more
Williams 2016 merger strategy and choices made in the employees who were cut and/or severed was a total failure, which in turn leads us directly to Williams 2019. It’ barely a few years later and worse. Any guesses for 2021? Exactly who or what is... — read more

Williams has lost its way. It’s such a big company that is run by faceless bureaucrats and bean counters. Employees that are passionate and have all their heart and believe in the natural gas business are sometimes norveven recognized and easily... — read more
No more posts, all has been forgotten, just like in the movie series purge. Again even MM could make money transporting natural gas.
For those who know or afraid, I’ll say it. The construction department leadership is unethical, hire buddies, family members, take paid trips to Las Vegas, get angry and to mention the outright discrimination. Williams, ask the field and those who... — read more
This is Williams at it’s worst. Those high and low who simply “feel” they have the power and are gonna wield it. It’s the “Powerstruck Syndrome“, believing that others will do your bidding and acquiesce, because you can “Finish” them career-wise. ... — read more
Monday will be like nothing happened, birds will be singing, sun will be shining, etc, just like in the movies.
Williams should really pay attention to those working in a field office while there manager is located elsewhere. They are supposedly working 9/80's and they are not even working 7 hours a day. Happening mostly in the construction area. Work outs... — read more
Total disaster, if you get a chance take a stroll through the org. chart of the Salt Lake City office you'll be amazed. Meeting after meeting about absolutely nothing, maybe 10-15% of the meeting have any value-maybe. Spending endless money on non... — read more

Stop terminating and laying people off. It takes time to train people, develop skills and learn the business. On paper it looks good, but it doesn’t work, try building something instead of buying assets at hyper inflated prices and running up... — read more
This will happen over and over again. The next step will be to start hiring like crazy, of course they will wait a few months like they did it 2016 to try it make it look like they really are interested in cutting costs. Look for adds to bring in... — read more
Yet they reorganize all the time and claim change is good, figure that one out.
