This fall will be interesting.
It’s already started this morning. Time to take out the trash.
Imagine how big the Kings kitty would be if they had allowed foreign companies to lease and develop the oil based on a GORR. And then take in kind their share of the oil and gas. This would have eliminated all the social issues trying to find work for the locals.
No talent...are you sure about that? In legal where would you be without an ex-pat advising the department who's able to navigate the complexities of international laws and statutes? In medical, how has JHAH's quality of care been since the ex-pats departed? In aviation, who's been the only one to crash a helicopter and actually k–l people as a result? Saudis. In fact, there was a crash recently and the Saudi pilot quit and went to work for the company in Riyadh that's about to take over Aramco's aviation department soon. There are other Saudis working there who also crashed an Aramco helicopter now returning making double what they did before. In engineering, it's common knowledge who's preventing Saudis from getting themselves and others k–led, especially on the electrical side - ex-pats.
So just because you think someone is expendable (based solely upon their nationality) doesn't mean that they are, or that they can easily be replaced with somebody who's actually competent. That might not matter to you but I can assure you that it matters to those that actually run this company.
Lastly, your very own government depends upon ex-pats for advisory and leadership services at this very moment (PIF, Red Sea Project, NEOM, IPO). Yet, here you are saying that they're all "expendable".
Suffice to say, you literally have no idea what you're talking about.
All remaining expats are very expendable. It is not clear why the company is still hanging onto to loud mouthed, no talent backstabbers.
Indeed some expats can be replaced, but don't think for a second that this company can function optimally without them, especially working in certain areas - legal, medical, aviation, engineering, etc.
Also, don't forget that this is a multinational company and people from both sides really need to stop and realize that vs. constantly attacking each other like school children.
If division is what you seek then take a look at what's happening in America now and then ask yourself if it's really worth it?
If only I didn’t drink so much, I would still have a job. If only I didn’t hide from the boss too much, I would still have a job. If only I had job skills that added value, I would still have a job. If only I hadn’t shared my ideas with those other, ugly expats, I would still have a job. If only I wasn’t so lazy, I would still have a job. If only I could have appreciated the company, when others in the US fired me, I would still have a job. I often wonder what I did wrong. What could it be?
You are going down, redundant expats. 👏
M means magnificent?! The undeniably large accidents already started happening. No need to look any further back in time than September 2019.
David - I doubt it. out of 12000 expats, they picked you. Sub-par performer and blaming others for your failures. Was the ride to the airport embarrassing? Everyone pointing at you, that's the M performer who got sacked.
Exodus time. Can’t wait to see the resultant crash and bang resulting from the p1ss poor engineering standards, knowledge and generally ineptitude of the locals brought in to fill the void!
Good luck to those left behind, I’d start making your exit plans ASAP. Won’t be long till they finally manage to have an undeniably large accident with no one to blame but themselves...
Inside information is being supplied that supports this plan. Some in senior management want much deeper cuts.
What is 20% staff cuts based upon and where will they be made? Realistically Saudization is a huge driver as expats are cut they are layed off with the goal of hiring more young Saudis. This is a mandate from the highest command.
Is it your prediction or you have inside informers please stop spreading false news
