As noted in some of the posts earlier this Summer, contractors were not having contracts renewed, and some even had their hours cut. This has NOT changed.
Last year, Peabody eluded to Husky having too many managers and senior figures at the company, and changes were coming. Many of those cuts happened and has NOT ended yet. If we don't have so many projects on the go, do you need so many people? Probably not.
With those who have already departed this year, have those positions been filled, or has someone just taken on more of a workload? Probably more of a workload. A manager simply doesn't need 1-2 reporting into them either.
I am also tired of reading racist comments or remarks. Husky is NOT a racist company. They actively promote diversity and have several groups representing their employees. However, most groups aren't inclusive to all. As a male, I am unsure how the WLN is something I can resonate with, perhaps if they renamed it to LN or Leadership network, everyone would feel part of that group? Just saying, lots of money spent on cupcakes, placements, and swag, but it you think about it, just have one Inclusive and Diversity group that represents ALL.
I have worked here for going on 10 years, and it seems at times that it is a case of who you know as well as what you know.
We've senior advisors for example with little or no experience working here, that moved over last year from a different group who magically appeared in a team with an internal posting that was only made available for 1-2 days. These people are often on social media, promoting brands and accessories for your ears, or 'WFH' with the 'Do not Disturb' on Skype for extensive periods throughout the day.
Like, COME ON MAN. It is so obvious who is working and these people receive special treatment over others.
If you think about it, Husky could cut another 10% and in time, you wouldn't feel there were cuts 6 months down the line. Take a look around you and ask yourself who is delivering value? We seemed to managed fine after the cuts last year, so cutting more wouldn't be a problem long term.
Look after yourself, and don't be naive if you think you are protected. I am worried this time around. Maybe it is time to move on without living with the uncertainty every year.
