They went belly up, doesn’t surprise me. Williams merger with access midstream wasn’t all that great as well. Lots of hype and BS with it, lots of good people at Williams lost their job because of it.

Does anyone know of an Access manager or higher who had been let go? My observation is that they are safe and also get to keep titles such as director even if they only have a team of six or eight reporting to them, not managers but staff employees... —  read more
