After talking to a few coworkers, it appears that lots of budget eating and support functions are mapped and shielded from job uncertainty.
On the other hand, people working the core value creating functions in the US subsurface all have to reapply into the new utterly BS org structure with some disappearing seats. Also, the level of BS in the townhalls is off the charts - all this chatter about "natural teams" with utter lack of any clear structure or accountability. And the oil price is not even low - why is this reorg needed in the US???
I am pretty sure everyone is now doing the bare minimum, with little initiative or ideas. Why bother??? I don't want to have my work end up with somebody else's name come August. Nor do I care much for the company and its management that forces me to go through this sh!t. So basically close to a half a year worth of effort ain't getting put in.
Am I off base here? Any other points of view? Anybody is trying to put in that extra effort before possibly getting laid off?
