Thread regarding ExxonMobil Corp. layoffs

Who makes the concrete decision who gets laid off?

Two of my coworkers got laid off 2 weeks ago. Our manager claims he had nothing to do with it and was just told who has to be let go. Even though I don’t believe him entirely ( I rethink he was consulted and asked to suggest who should be let go) I also know he didn’t make the final decision.
This got me wondering. In what layer of management is the final decision made on what employee will be shown the door?

"I specifically made a recommendation between two people my manager asked about. [and opposite was done]"

Might want to CYA.

You might be next.

You should be concerned that you lacked influence.

Not going to be Bart. He is good at giving ice cream to his employees, taking away his employees 30% COLA, getting coached on how to speak, trotting out his VP on annual basis for Women's Engineering Day, wasting billions and billions and billions on Kearl and the Permian, and lying to his employees. Go ahead and #admin me again, and again and again and I will keep posting again amd again and again and again. You corrupt over covering yet again for a corrupt Woods syphocant.

For layoff last year I was not asked. I am a supervisor.

One of my employees was laid off, and I was not any part of that decision. My boss was able to provide feedback upward, but not their decision either. I believe (but am not sure) that decision was made at VP level where we are all just generic salaries on a spreadsheet.

The manager MIGHT be telling the truth. When decisions were being made on layoffs last year, I specifically made a recommendation between two people my manager asked about. Who got laid off? The opposite of what I told him. That was the point at which I figured out the layoffs were basically done by a spreadsheet sorted highest salary to lowest (pets protected of course) and they summed up the column until they hit their number (that was what they meant by “company fit”). The employee who was vastly better had double the salary of the person I said would be a better candidate for the layoff.

Who makes the decisions on who gets laid off? Depends. It could be the person managing Career Connect and changes the criteria based on her mood and/or the UIS VP Admin who s**ks on anything to get her way.

What does it matter? You gonna go whup their a-s? Shoot ‘em up?

I got PIP’d last year, and just took the PIL. And moved on. Could I point fingers and hold a grudge towards specific individuals? Sure I could. Wouldn’t change the final outcome.

Almost feel sorry for my supervisor. He was basically crying when he told me. Crying for me or himself, not sure.

In the way that I have seen it and worked was: Management sent the order, but the one who decide it is your manager. That kind of cr-p that your manager is not involve, it's for Koolaid drinkers.

OP if you are trying to get insider info on the company just ask. That kind of stuff is freely volunteered on here, no need to post easily verifiable and false rumors.
