Open message to all employees - what do you think CHK actually need to drive differential performance? In my department, things are decent. Not perfect, but certainly don't see to suffer from some of the problems that everybody complains about on here. The Culture stuff is dumb, and I don't really like it either, but if it helps the company perform better, I'm for it. Let's not fool ourselves - with no big asset sales or some revolution that lets us drill a well for $250,000... the company's fate hangs by a thread. Is your job frustrating? Why?... I've heard many complain that all good ideas are shot down until the same idea is proposed by a more well-connected person (usually engineer).
It also seems like the Executive team has been largely absent this year. After Q4 last year with analyst day and the Employee Summit, it seemed that the direction of the company was at least visible and we were all on the same page. This year... practically silence. No call/no show on the Q2 Town Hall?. I think the Exec's need to quit being so insulated from the workers. The only message they've been unified on is the culture training. Hey Doug - what message does that send? "The company is in crisis mode, and we aren't talking about it. Instead, we are going to spend god-knows-how-much on training so you'll all learn how to behave at work". WTF?
What are some problems you've experienced?
