Brace yourself is right, these corporate guys don't care about the people although they say people are the most important asset, they talk rubbish, Greengate is a target for more cuts, fact, no one is safe even the people doing the cuts right now, they wont be far behind you all but really should have been first.
We have no leaders, people who will speak up for the right things, just people who ask 'how high should i jump'. Derby closed due to bad management, look whos in control of the business now and go figure.

Commercial office staff are being targeted , whilst no one would confirm this, the recent departures are probably as a result of a nice pay out to some people, like they offer in Houston but allegedly cant in the UK because of tax reasons, that's just rubbish.
They should look closer at the people who are costing the money and adding the least value, start with the VP's and come down a level where travel costs must be at least as much as having two guys in the factory, even the Chemineer people who are rumoured to be earning at least 25% more than the Mono guys, fixing that will help, these short term measures being done right now are just aimed at getting people out of the business who are not in favour but in most cases add the most value and are the reason the Mono business has grown over many years, MONO, yes, the M and not the N word, will miss these people and suffer as a result

Most of the dead wood is in middle management never seen so many managers for so few workers. If they got rid of 4-5 of them they could have saved good lads there jobs £35-40k a year for doing not much!! Good work if you can get it or you know Bilko

People don't leave bad jobs... they leave because of bad management, who don't appreciate their value.
So true of this management.

Union can’t do anything about agency wages, don’t forget they don’t get paid when the factory is shut like at Christmas or get sick pay they can abuse, Glad I left years ago

Its not a case of works or office layoffs, NOV need to take a closer look at the top of the organisation. They have far too many 'yes' men from president to VP to the many directors who work for the VP's. They don't want to hear how things are, just what they want to hear and anyone with a different view is pushed out or leave for better things, they really are destroying the business and who ever thought pumps and mixing went together has no understanding of industrial business. The senior leadership team are a joke, made up of career jockys looking for their next role, they will be long gone before its realised what a mess the business is in.
