Seems that the rhetoric and bluster was, once again, invented in the mind of another less than capable, bitter, twisted local.....
Glad to see they’re pensioning off the dinosaurs and the inept. Soon be the turn of the work shy and lazy younger generations of entitle fools who think their family name or connections will save them.
Enjoy redundancy, karma really is a b1tch!
3 more weeks to get bonus, only you need to be active on March 1st and don't get less than E in PMP. Company is focused now more in Early retirements of locals instead of Expats layoffs.
Expats should not expect life time employment from Aramco. Times are changing! But, let’s face it, Saudis are incompetent. You are next on the chopping block.
Saudis are not prepared to face reality. The saying goes, “...lots of cheese covers a lot of pizza mistakes.” Similarly, lots of oil cover lots of Aramco mistakes but this is changing. Aramco is no longer a privately owned company, and investors and management consultants are looking at “fats” that need removing. Expats will go first then local Saudis are next. Do not think for a moment that Saudis are spared. Locals are >90% of the employee base.
The world is trending towards renewables and non oil base products. While oil will not go away fast, it won’t be growing gangbusters like it did in the 2000 because of the shift in major car companies and countries desire to a cleaner form of energy. And Saudis should recognise this...
They usually let the pompous ones, who think they are safe, go as soon as feasible. The company does not like expats calling each other names; regardless of being a good, bad or normal 🍎.
Why dont u guys shut the F-up. Stop with ur doom news. If we are going to be wiped out then so be it. Face whatever life throws at you with courage. No place for frightened little pu–ycats sounding their little bells.
Layoffs are coming , expats were saved for a while due to Aramco focus in processing as many Saudi as they can. Expat get ready plan well for your coming transition into retirement phase
It is a firm belief among many expats that they are not absolutely safe. Being retired after several decades of loyal service to the company, it was my real life experience to service many (large) layoffs.
I quite a few expats with E's that thought they were safe and they worked their butts off but yet they were laid off so No you are not safe but keep believing that unless you are Saudi
Poor M or D sod. I am absolutely safe.
