Look like world economic is heading toward recession/ depression soon. Will Shell start new round of layoff?
and what is ur discipline, function, job-grade, etcetc.? have the number of hours changed much over the years (for better or for worse)?
We want oil rights because selling the devil's ex------t is lucrative right now. But we can't admit to each other that we're really just a band of greedy wh--es. So we're going grab the moral high ground AND whine about not being able to play in the... — read more
Looks like this is becoming popular among Shell's younger employees as well. It's not something I could do (my work ethic wouldn't let me) but I can't begrudge them either. Shell has changed a lot in the last decade or so and I can understand that... — read more
Is it true? The rumors in the hallway are that BvB is gone because he sold Permian and now COP is milking the cow after Shell developed it Thoughts?
Wael as CEO
While he was in the US, he reorganized every other year. Lots of layoffs. Deepwater assets sold. What can we expect from him as CEO?
Another unproductive Canadian Townhall in the books. The business really needs to reinvent the Townhall.
What is their equivalent of "$100K" salary. Not the conversion rate equivalent, but the relatively speaking equivalent.
Hey everyone. I received a full time offer in PE/Geo program in Gulf of Mexico. I have heard that offshore is a good place to work, especially from a Big Major, but the skillset developed cannot directly applied in unconventional which limited the... — read more
Since betting the farm on deepwater exploration how are things going ? any good results ? Anywhere ? Not hearing much positive news which is a worrying sign .....
If I apply for a job in the Netherlands or Singapore and I’m located in the US, will Shell relocate me? Additionally, will they consider me for the position at all?
Guess the US will get more dutch staff..enjoy!
Time for the Shell "hot potato" game to begin. Ben is going to take all of the woke "green" promises he has been so proudly championing and pass them on to the next schmuck to pass on to the next schmuck, etc. until whomever is holding the steaming... — read more
Do many people have 100% PIR or is 90% closer to the norm? Just curious where in the distribution most people sit - toward the bottom? - or toward the top Are there very many folks over 100%?
Think D&I. Think 8% inflation and then the gaslighting that a 2% raise is really better for you, because Gretchen is SO SMART. Think no bonus because someone in Nigeria had a car accident. Think managers who can't do but check the ESG boxes. Think... — read more
There are worse things than working for a company run by those who you don’t agree with. Shell is not ideal but it pays well and provides good benefits, which is more than you can say for most other places. Not to mention being unemployed. There are... — read more
For those of you working 9/80s, do you have to make personal appointments on your day off, or are you given more flexibility? EM employee here. We have been told we don't want 9/80s by mgmt, but I don't believe that.
I read that Prelude is not producing and the shutdown has been cancelled , is this true due to the Unions shutting it ?
EM employee here....How does ranking / performance assessment work at Shell? Is it a forced distribution / relative ranking system similar to EM?
Shell to give staff 8% bonus after record profits. (I didn’t get the memo…is this for all staff or was this the stock awards which vested recently?) https://stocks.apple.com/AV9wxy4vQSNa2WpJ0FL-q-Q
it would have been more appropriate to give everybody an equal monetary bonus such as the bonus shares we got recently .....
Any one else notice on their last pay stub that RDS sold some of "your" shares to cover taxes, which you got in lieu of a bonus, without telling you?
Auger for sale again. Clearing out assets for JG99 goodbye? Or are we so busy they will be needed elsewhere. https://www.reuters.com/business/energy/exclusive-shell-places-us-gulf-mexico-assets-up-sale-sources-2022-07-20/
Lol. Let's see if Ben can resist giving Conoco another gift .....
This company over the past few years has become a joke. How about we focus on increasing value for the shareholders, like we are suppose to do. Renewables, Diversity, Roe v Wade, Social Justice, etc is going to run this company into the ground. ... — read more
Any suggestions? Any with experience against Shell?
Seems like more and more employees are experiencing COVID symptoms and yet Gretchen and their "caring" staff have not said a word about the issue. How can they say their primary care is the safety of their employees but say nothing and do nothing. ... — read more
Noticed you are done "spending" the money you got for the Permian and share price has barely budged. So that was money well spend right ? I think you need to fully reinstate the pre covid dividend ....
When I started working here, I felt privileged to have the opportunity to work and learn from some of the greatest experts in their field. Now I wonder if Shell is doing anything to retain the talent here?
Any Shell comment ? Surely good reason to reiterate support for employee rights on reproductive care and explore plans to move out of the state of Texas in the long run . Not an OIl and Gas company anyways anymore .....
Lately it’s like the managers are just too occupied with their own ambitions and plans for further promotion that they don’t do the very thing that they are paid to do, manage. That behavior was always present to some degree but lately it has become... — read more
Anyone hear of a situation, lately, where severance was offered for employees nearing retirement. I'm talking about those cases where an employee has been employed for 30+ years? I guess you could just wait for the next package that may be around... — read more
A lot of people are choosing to quit but doing that now is pure idiocy, in my opinion. First of all, O&G is doing great. You should never leave a winning team. Second of all, the compensation here is still better than at plenty of competition. And... — read more
Especially the ones that don’t produce any results and ahe no clear function. Who benefits from them staying but themselves. Why so much protection?
Why is Shell not in Guyana ?
VP has too little to keep him busy. Told me that others are decorating their cubes with personal items, pictures, stickers, why not me? Seems very focused on SPS. Wants to see smiles and flair and personal photos on Yammer. What the fu-k did I get... — read more
