I could only laugh at someone's post that at BH it is important to bring some value and that it is a way to keep the job. Of course, it is important to bring value, but I have been convinced many times that it means nothing when it comes to cuts. In other words, I know a lot of those who brought value and who were shown the door, as well as those who didn’t add any value and who are still here.

It is who you dance with in Chemicals!!!!
If you want a real life lesson in value, take something that is "very valuable" in your opinion and see what they will pay for it.
Same thing happens here @ work: the BS artists survive, while someone who was worth a lot (creating true value) for the organization, is sent packing!
That’s it. You begin to look unfavorable on a balance sheet with time.
It is all about the money. If you are paid alot, you are in danger no matter how much value you bring. By working many years and being successful and bringing value also brings pay raises and bonuses. This is great until lay off time. You are now making too much because of your success.
"Value" is in the eye of the beholder. Some see trash while others see treasure.
True! This is cruel side of the reality. But, we still need to learn from those can survive there.
What you wrote is true, but the bigger picture is shaping up to be a yard sale.
Everyone always buys something better and fun with their yard sale money.
