After a tumultuous 3 years at Shell, I’ve decided to take the SVS package. Seen my fair share of reorgs and I don’t want to end up pigeonholed in a career with no transferable skills and have to face layoffs when I’m married with kids. Hoping to pivot out now while I’m young and build a career in another field.
My message to anyone who’s uncertain about taking the package - is it worth staying with a company that is going through significant change and might not come out better for it on the other side? Is it worth staying in the extremely volatile industry that oil and gas is? For all we know, we could have another round of layoffs in 2 years. I’m grateful to Shell for giving me a start to my career, but it’s time to move on.
Who else is taking the package? Would love to hear everyone else’s thoughts on the matter.
