Thread regarding Saudi Aramco layoffs

Gas Layoffs

Who all is affected. Company is firing expats again. They are trying to hide it by releasing fewer at a time. But my sources say more are planned and management doesn’t want a repeat of the fuss with the previous round.

It is funny if you ask a non-expat Aramco employee to take a gamble and see how they would do at BP or Chevron. Glazed look, no understanding . . . competitive labor market no bueno.

Let's analyze this: "It is about time for people to realize that large outflows of useless expats is ongoing. Why is the company hanging onto these people? The expats talk and say the right things, but never 👎 deliver or implement anything of substance. Watch the PowerPoint presentations that promise everything, but deliver nothing. The lack of real performance is not limited to the useless expats in Gas."

Let´s see Expats talk and say the right things but neve deliver on anything of substance. Yeah we do point out the error of certain processes and do propose solutions. But how can we deliver or implement when the locus of decision making is many times in the hands of an individual who has been appointed to the position based on his wasta or rectal osculation skills rather than actual competence?
Not to mention people who have been doing things wrong for years but will stand in the way of implementing improvement to processes based on their so called "experience".
Unfortunately no bringing in the best instructors from outside of kingdom nor sending these bipedal creatures to prestigious universities will remedy this situation. I would dare to say that out of ten maybe one of them would be competitive in the global market place,

It is ongoing, all the companies do it when businesses are doomed, Aramco is not an exception. But they seriously lack transparency. They do not even want to confess that they are laying off people. CEO lies on media. They are bunch of hooligans

Good. If they're worthless, they should be firing them, Saudis n Expats, all year-long, not just during downturn.
