Isn't it funny how Williams is not even trying to prevent burnout among employees and at least reduce the high rate of attrition? It seems that it's the actual goal. Push people until they reach their breaking point and leave, so they can save money... — read more
Is there any news relative to staff reductions for 2024
Culture is so toxic and they love throwing people under the bus. They say no retaliation, but it always happen and they don’t do anything about it. Management fosters all of that and all they care about is their “EBIDTA” and their investors. Worst... — read more
With NG hitting 2 bucks, and the stock price hovering below 30 bucks, pressure for employee cuts may be increasing. Remember it’s always for show.
Shifting capital spend $$'s from 2023nto 2024, now what could that mean, and your first two guesses are wrong 🤔
Just in time got the Holidays.
Get the permits first build, don’t buy materials first then get the permits later, backwards, big charges if you do that. Simple common sense. Don’t run pipelines through peoples apple farms either, not good for public relations.
It may be time to remove some of the 55+!older employees, the poor market conditions is a perfect excuse to do this. They must be good at it by now, have a system in place.
Potential for some small cuts to feed the Lions they are hungry and want more. Nothing will change though.
Rumors have started about possible October cuts. Is there any chance somebody here knows more about it?
Maybe they are looking at how people over 55 are forced out of the company and realize there isn’t any loyalty at this “firm”.
I have heard about a lot of great women leaving Williams this year. I joined Williams because of a female leader I met, but she left and other women I hear are leaving/have left too. What’s going on that I need to know? I don’t want to encourage... — read more
Layoffs might be back on the Table only for show though, that’s the history of this company.
Large debt holding company back. And stock appreciation. Result of uneven personnel hiring and firing policies including massive layoffs. Don’t have the qualified experienced and dedicated personnel to run cost effective capital projects due to... — read more
It’s too bad they fired 10 percent of the their staff in 2016. Currently there is a huge shortage of pipelines and Williams is again behind curve behind chasing. They need to manage their labor, permitting and development. Get the permits then... — read more
Looks like this year may be a good year for Williams. I don’t predict any massive layoffs with dividend stocks coming back in favor and LNG demand staying strong. You never know what will happen though.
What a joke, Williams found another way to adjust goals with knocking down ratings, very un-ethical.
Just curious is the GC 15 compressor design process still around and how is it doing?
For some it’s mandatory, for some it’s optional and others not a word mentioned business as usual. Interesting how this was rolled out. I do understand this is not an option for all employees. Talking about positions where remote work is... — read more
Well maybe next year will bring some layoffs and excitement to this dead message board.
Ones this year will not get hit with the ax. Stock price is still positive for the year. Anybody with a brain bigger than pea knows that layoffs at Williams are strictly correlated with the stock price. Have a great New Year!
There will be not any major layoffs on 2021, since it looks the stock price will be up this year with soaring spot natural prices over 6 bucks. Currently 2022 looks like a good year with futures close to 4 bucks. However natural gas is highly... — read more
Blueskies, and the people responsible for designing it are a complete joke. Managers, and above are so out of touch with what employees are actually doing on a day to day basis and the flaws in the system highlight that.
Hope the new guys enjoy this while it last the plan is to train current outside operations on boards and along with the combined control room the ability to run 3 different facilities from one location. The eliminating of an outside operator and a... — read more
IF stock price drops below 20 and stays there for over three months, you can count on big layoffs again, it’s like clockwork.
I like how someone put it in one of the threads below - "easier than layoffs". Do you think that companies will in some way benefit from people not wanting to get vaccinated, because that way they could get rid of them more easily than through... — read more
What is the reason for this survey? Are they considering a vaccine mandate?
It seems like that juicy 6% dividend is the best thing Williams has to offer. It certainly isnt the performance of the stock it had been miserable. Considering this, cover your self, because they will be cutting costs any chance they get. The big... — read more
It looks like Williams is chasing again, they don’t have the personnel to build the pipelines needed to move product. Many have been fired, terminated, let go, quit or kicked out the door. Stock is stuck at 25 and doing nothing again.
Is this a good thing or the calm before the storm?
I hear there are still people at Williams over 50. It is time for another “voluntary” retirement offer to clean out the “dead wood”.
Many of the oil & gas majors have now switched permanently to a "hybrid" remote work model...Work from home on Mondays & Fridays with option to work remotely on Tuesdays-Thursdays, while still maintaining 9/80 schedules. Seems like Williams now... — read more
Anybody know if Williams is converting from natural gas to solar power to meet their net zero emissions goals?
So they are taking away field trucks again and giving them to the VPs. How creative.
I’m going to ask Alan if I can borrow his Porsche to get to work
All employee meeting in PA end of the week. Land dept. getting cuts, pulling the company trucks.
https://www.buzzfeed.com/ryanschocket2/job-interview-red-flags-reddit Sounds like my interview at Williams...... it’s like as if all Williams employees worked at Enron for Andy Fastow, Jeff Skilling or Lu Pai or Ken Lay.
As I predicted, stock price is over 20, only “trimming of the fat”’ this Holiday Season, no mass layoffs. Have a great day!
Looks like they are “trimming the fat”, at Williams, great timing right before the holidays. I see people losing their jobs on Linkedin. A manager even came on this board and tried to defend it. Have a great week!!
