Thread regarding Phillips 66 layoffs

How badly do you want out?

A colleague of mine just took another job for 30 percent less pay. And he is overjoyed. I know people are not happy here but are they really THAT unhappy? That's a significant difference I personally couldn't afford, but for him it was worth it. Do others feel the same way?

they already tried to remove that monster to another role and he fought tooth and nail to stay in his own little manufactured b'ville fiefdom, . . . he'll never move to HQ. . watch and see,

they tossed his boss instead, he was ready to go anyway,

really strange goings on,

@yaright

Don't know how it works in Houston, but in Bartlesville they only hire family and friends, so we all agree there is a competency problem, real talent is headed for the exits, they cant compete with blood relatives and pals for positions or promotions,

We also have one arrogant supervisor slob who has his endless list of 'buddies' that he references during every meeting with some seemingly vast expert knowledge of every subject known on Earth, people run away fast from this kind,

If you take up a job which requires skills above your ability and over your head they will fail and leave. That is not a Boss problem rather it is a competency issue.

Clearly there is a problem up there,

Who would ever do that without some fairly extreme workplace problems their trying to run away from? People don't leave jobs as often as they leave a bad boss,

How about having an obnoxious, vindictive, selfish, micromanaging bully for a boss, one who doesn't listen to anyone, who repeatedly takes all credit for ideas and successes, yet failures . . nada . .those are all yours,

Who then has some brainstorm of slamming multiple disparate Teams and disciplines together to make out like some budget king to Management, thus causing knowledgeable employees to choose to leave rather than continue to be subjected to such mindless insanity, . .saving dimes while dollars of critical talent walk out the door, it will cost us so much more in long run,

Sure, sign me up, . .not
