Topics regarding layoffs at Shell Oil
Anyone know what jg99 is heard mixed messaging in multiple town halls.

Any old timers here who had seen transition 2009? It completed in April 2010, when the oil price was quite robust. Then Shell went on a hiring/training spree, only to lay off a bunch of folks again in 2014-2017, in more localized layoffs. Had... — read more
After 3 tumultuous years at Shell, I’ve decided to take the SVS package. Too much volatility in this company and in oil and gas for my liking, so I’m gonna find something more stable where I can build a career. Who else is taking the package? How... — read more
After a tumultuous 3 years at Shell, I’ve decided to take the SVS package. Seen my fair share of reorgs and I don’t want to end up pigeonholed in a career with no transferable skills and have to face layoffs when I’m married with kids. Hoping to... — read more
Org charts reveal that the exploration structure was put through a randomizer. Separating JG1 exploration Boms from the rest of the workers who now report to a different EVP than these Jg1 Boms is sure to create a lot of "synergies" and "... — read more
Search “organizational chart” on the hub’s search bar
I was offered a job outside of Shell. Is there a way to time it so I can take SVS and start at new company relatively soon? Last day of payroll in the SVS guide says July 31 and new company certainly won’t wait til then.
Does anyone know anything about location, job reduction?
Each of the business lines are supposed to release their respective Target Operating Model (TOM) this week. This is our first opportunity to see if there are "boxes" we may post out for in the MOR. What do you see?

To all Shell business leaders EC-2 and above: Please stop throwing the word "CARE" out every time you have a webcast. Every single one of us cringes whenever you do that. Why? Because we know it is not genuine. We all know the whole "CARE"... — read more
Any idea on % cuts, rumor mill suggests up to 50% cut in exploration staff, seems high but no idea about development subsurface
Yesterday, a manager caught me looking up information on available jobs outside the company. He didn't say anything about it right then and there but now I'm worried that I got myself in trouble and basically painted a target on my back. How badly... — read more

Post here....my supervisor told me today as he already knows and he is out of town this week. I am IMPACTED, but he can't tell me how until next week. So he can tell me that I am impacted, but I have to wait until next week to find out how? Is... — read more
My application for SVS 2020 was rejected! Should I apply again for SVS 2021?
Selling off refineries I get that. But what’s next. I think battery development for electric cars and mining the materials would be a good place to start.
To get the news if they are needed or not. I know its not an immediate goodbye if you are not needed, but it is going to be rough applying to a limited number of internal postings.
I don’t know if I should start applying for jobs or wait it out and get a package. The facility is closing in March and they haven’t let us know how many will transfer to the other two local facilities. I don’t want to jump ship bc I have hopes that... — read more

I s— at my job. I work in IT in Houston. How do I stop s—ing at it? You can argue well if you s—ed they would have fired you by now. So maybe I don't s— as much, but I s— enough to get pigeonholed into a very specific skill which has... — read more

Looks like employees get to stay a month longer. Maybe something is in the works. Hope so. Don’t want to see facility close and families lose so much. Anyone heard?
Let's be real - how much longer does Anacortes really have?
Anybody surprised how the huge bulk of incumbents kept their roles? Even those who could retire - nope, not now. So it's disappearing VP slots that will dump lots of JgB and JgA into the next batch, where a few lucky ones could snatch that... — read more

I’m planning to retire in three to four years and I was wandering weather I should retire if there is a severance package offered or hold off till the date I desire to retire.
How is everyone finding the work place after Avanti? Not seeing much positive change at the moment to be honest.
I look around and wonder how they will survive without me? No-one dares speak truth to power unless they have enough years in the company. Shell and our industry lacks vision and leadership.
