JH and his puppet master purged another handful of LCVE talent today. I guess the rest of us need to fall in line or else.
The worst thing that can happen is to be stuck here and in the meantime become unmarketable with atrophied skills. Moreover, I think that getting laid off from here is a blessing for many, a much needed kick to see that they can do better. Just... — read more
Well it was a good run while it lasted. WTI dropping with a new round headcount reductions soon
There is a rumour circulating that certain groups will receive e-mail on Monday to work-from-home Tuesday September 27th. Apparently there are some managers with too few reports (ie 4 or 5) so these groups will be amalgamated.
Only this HR org would be d-mb enough to give employees one year to use up carryover vacation, or lose it…and then start tracking card swipes in July & August when those same people are trying to use up their carryover. Then hand the data over to... — read more
Who really believes the VP of HR decided to resign with two days notice and they felt it necessary to include the line that she still believes in the direction of the company. That about as believable as some high level Russian falling out of a... — read more
New management heading to Sunrise from CL. Good luck to everyone there. No one at CL will miss him well except for A.S. Maybe she will go too!
Expect news in the next 2 weeks that the workplace flexibility pilot was deemed not to be sustainable and will it will be back to “normal office” routine starting Jan. 2023.
Attrition in Q3 has been insufficient to achieve the desired employee count. Next round of layoffs on September 27.
Shell gave employees an inflationary bump mid-term. Suncor is considering it. CNRL - nope. Cenovus - where do you stand?
Everyone talks about quiet quitting, but I don't like that idea at all. Sounds like a waste of time. Why do that when it is always possible to find a much better opportunity? I have two interviews waiting for me next week.
In any normal company, employee performance should be a priority in everything. However, performance seems to be becoming less and less important here? When it comes to layoffs, the irony is that the target are often those who put work before... — read more
Is everyone prepared for Tuesday? I was layed-off last year on August 31. It sucked --> just before the long weekend and kids returning to school. But after over 20 years at Legacy organization, I received 24 months and was still eligible of EI. ... — read more
FYI they are tracking who scans their badges to see who actually goes into the office to comply with the 2 day WFH split. Results to be reviewed in Q4 by execs.
There have been so many layoffs outside of performance management processes in the last year, how long can this ethically go on? People getting fired randomly and then replaced by friends of well connected people in the org puts the rest of us on... — read more
So they want to layoff our friends. Ok. I have quietly quit today. Shut it down folks. Make it count and make it noticed! It’s time
I think those who are not burned out are in the minority here. What a "great way" to give up the best employees to the competition! I worked in other companies in the industry and there I was often exhausted too, but I never experienced burnout. Well... — read more
When is the next purge of those that they don’t like or are threatened by? Will it be all LCVE again?
I highly recommend quiet quitting. Look it up. It’s been 2 months now and by only working 8-4 daily, my excess work has been redistributed. That’s the only way to survive here as they won’t help you from preventing burnout any other way. — read more
It is obvious that it is too big a challenge for them to create a fine balance between having too few and too many employees. My team is terribly understaffed, while some other teams are overstaffed. ------ Why is this happening? Is staffing an... — read more
Retail is gone. Canadian ethanol cannot generate RINS. Time to dump MEP & LEP.
Some think it's not optional, but I sincerely hope it is. I would appreciate if someone could confirm that the request for internal resume update is optional...
Is the information accurate that more layoffs are coming? Is that true? Can someone confirm please?
Few posts on Linked in of people let go last week. Does anyone know how many were let go last week and what groups were impacted? Are they done this latest round yet?
HR request for employees to update their internal resume is akin to the Talent Profile in December of 2020.
When will this company finally start getting rid of so many useless managers? Will that time ever come?
There will be a right sizing effort in late October. You will be moved within your extended teams/placed under a new management line/or let go as part of this effort. Good luck, fill out your internal resume.
BP-Husky's Toledo, Ohio, refinery, located on 586 acres east of the city, has operated continuously since 1919. Since that time, the facility has undergone numerous improvements and expansions to achieve its current capacity for processing 160,000... — read more
Even the thought of small layoffs that go under the radar is fueling anxiety in me. Is it true that they are happening right now, as someone mentioned in one of the threads below? Does anyone have more details?
A data room is being prepared for Clearwater Deep Basin. Cenovus looking to profit from the current high natural gas prices?
Watch this space for reasons for lay-offs and the new plan "1.03 in 23".
For a long time now, no one in this company expects things to start improving. On the contrary, everyone is constantly expecting the next bad thing that will make this workplace even worse. Am I right? This has become an extremely sad place to be... — read more
Cenovus has posted the following Professional Engineer positions for the Lloydminster Upgrader: Corrosion Engineer Sr. Process Engineer Good luck to all applicants.
This site is quiet now. That means the CLT is confident now and ready to take something more away. Less earned days off?, reduction in benefits?, removal of option to work from home, or even a reduction in bonus percentage. Mark my words
For now, I haven't noticed that fewer people are leaving. Everyone is looking for a way out. Will attrition finally slow down a bit? I am quite exhausted and if this continues, I don't know how much longer I will be able to do work for several... — read more
Why is Cenovus so bad at the people side of the business .?
Pretty easy to find a job right now…
I can't wait to leave this joke of a company. Have you noticed how they do everything to make us feel privileged to have a job here? Truly ridiculous! I stopped feeling that way a long time ago and I don't think anything can keep me here anymore. — read more
At this point, I don't think there's anything left to keep me at CVE. I don't think this company has ever had a harder time retaining its employees?
