Wow. Way to continue to k–l morale at the company. Another slaughter brought to you by the Boston Consulting Group. I wish they hadn’t moved away from using the Greek alphabet to name these projects. That way we could at least keep track of how many there have been. Project alpha, etc. I also like how the leadership told us that we have been asking for this through the CES. Way to go employees. I see a major bloodbath PSG 23 and up. What does everyone else see?

Come on, people. Are you so short-sighted? BCG’s main purpose in consulting Chevron management and executives is only a deflection. It’s a buffer for the decisions the Executives have already decided on. Don’t you know that when things go wrong, the company brass will need a scapegoat to blame? That’s what we pay BCG for. For the most part, they impart good analysis and strategy, but if the unexpected happens, it’s them who will be blamed. But no matter the turnout, the price is always paid in headcount. Many staff employees will be thrown out to pay for the losses.
COV office should be cleaned out of all nepotism and hangers one. I work in SCM in Houston and would hope for a few more years with the company, but the COV group runs everything. It wouldn’t hurt to eliminate the nepotism in my office also.
BCGs MO is laughable to anyone with half a brain, unfortunately they’ve got the ear of someone with half a brain or less in CVX Leadership. Example BCG’s Mr Fiesta who roamed COV for a good while. He had a free ticket to attend Org Meetings, where he promptly ate, slept through 90% of the meeting, woke up at the end, grabbed the stage, and went off on a self promoting manifesto in no way related to anything said in the previous hours. I kid you not! Only at Chevron!
Buy BCG Stock, they could easily be the most profitable Profit Center in CVX. They don't really do anything, but they've got somebody convinced that they do.
Certainly our company and our leadership are not perfect, neither are any of us. But honestly, in my opinion this latest effort for change and the vision recently shared by our leaders is much needed and in general, with what we know now, seems to be a significant step in the right direction. Certainly its always regrettable when people are cut/laid off but we work for a business and businesses aim to make profit. Consider perhaps that executive leadership are privy to discussions containing information that are not available to the working man/woman among the ranks. If you are paying attention to today's new cycle, politics, global affairs, climate change, changing dynamics in popular/generational opinion, and a long list of etc. They know or at least hear whats coming and they see that the immediate to mid-term future in oil & gas is going to be challenging to say the least. Have a bit of faith in those running the company; sure the armchair quarterbacks can always do better, always know best. But really you have no other option but to let those that steer the ship man the rudder. Good luck all.
It's bizarre how Chevron continues to buy into BCG's raping their cash flow. From day one the only thing special about BCG was the unprecedented degree of buy in they got from Chevron Executive Management, essentially a mandate that what BCG says, goes. With an internally driven re-org process, Chevron would be a better company today.
Not sure it was a troll post, but the poster”Tim” indicated he had talked to his boss Sunday morning and it was discussed that +4,000 would be laid off. Groups he mentioned were HQ, support groups, CNAEP, BUs, resource groups. Mentioned the coming communication (on Monday last) and following cascading communications. I do not recall name calling gender/race, etc. this person “Tim” went on to post the +4,000 number on at least 3 other threads, so that seemed like he wanted to stir things up.
It was a troll post, that’s why it got deleted.
Was about layoffs in 2020 (which we all know that will probably happen), the other part was trying to stir the pot (gender/race yada yada yada).
What did the Sunday post say? They must have been a little to close to the action and got scared of what they said. Might get outted and make the cut list.
Why is the Sunday post deleted anyway? I thought the forum is for rumors.
I agree,Mike Wirth blames employees for this planned ousting. So sad. How greed euthanizes top level morals.
You missed the Sunday post that OP deleted....
