Just an average Joe at Shell that stumbled across the Confidential Leader Guide for Offers and Regrets. It's great to find this so called guide prior to my meeting with my manager.
Here is what country superstar Sturgill Simpson thought of his former employer. https://www.facebook.com/SturgillSimpsonSociety/posts/and-then-the-former-railroad-worker-added-if-you-drive-by-the-union-pacific-rail/726714884121267/
what does uis/cds really do? looks like a bunch of non-playing captions and baby sitters and very few worker-bees. i also heard that some senior technical guy boasts of being a technical author whilst he actually wrote a book about developing a toy... — read more
The new hit sitcom from Discovery+/Warner Media - "How to Lose a Company in Three Short Years", starring Randall L. Stephenson and John Stankey. I laughed till I stopped.
The quote of the day. Yammer ready. Confetti on the creator's desk, though of course his supervisor will take the credit. External consultants are running this company now. DW never lost power that winter day, guaranteed, but he thought for a... — read more
We all know it’s been a crazy last 400 days, well those of us that actually RTO everyday do at least. While they basked in the sun we saw our hazard pay get sunset. While they virtue signaled and manipulated stock prices we had our hands tied. The... — read more

I was let go last year and just got rehired. Feels good to be back at a great company. I hope to retire at GA… lots of work to catch up on!
I think we need even more bean counters to jamb up what’s currently functioning too well, so that they too have a job, and guaranty that ours takes twice as long, bogged down in mindless, needless minutia, so as to guaranty our continued employment... — read more
As recent as a few years ago, anytime Sears or Kmart were closing a bunch of stores, you could tune in to your favorite channel for news and catch a blip mentioning Sears Kmart closing more stores again. Lately it seems like you have to really do... — read more

Hearing that the MN location could close. Will all offices shift to Toronto w/ everyone else working remote?
It just happened last week. A very key player in a modestly high position announced he would be leaving. But instead of the "In three weeks" or "In six weeks" or even later, it was "In 3 days"! I have seen the "leaving and my last day will be... — read more

Like the rest of the world human respect demands vaccine cards. Nothing is fair about the neglect of the honor system.
So they bribe us to get the vaccine but if you work in fresh , it’s an empty promise? Covid isn’t passed through food yet I am hearing fresh cannot dump their masks vaccine or not. Little discriminatory if you ask me
When the dividend gets cut by 40 - 50% and the share price gets hammered by approximately that much, then hopefully the exec compensation and exec headcount will also get cut to reflect their performance.
A lot of frustration on this forum, a lot of "the Old way" when PHK was directing the company. Who told you he isn't, he fought for two classes of stock, the Swoosh Trust was established as part of his retirement, Jasper Ridge toils away... — read more

Windstream created ERGs for specific societal segments. Today 6 new Directors, 5 belong to one of the special Employee Resource Groups. How far does it need to go before we can call it biased and discriminatory??

Been gone for 5 months now, and still no word on returning my monitor and laptop. When do they usually reach out? Could they just be so unorganized that they don’t know what equipment I have??
At least the entertainment value from the carnage created from the dividend cut will make good TV for them.

I know in advance that anything IBM touches will be destroyed. Acquired companies, something that could have been good ideas... nothing survives IBM. Is it possible that there is so much incompetence at the top?
