Thread regarding BP PLC layoffs

It can't go on like this anymore

What they call ‘hard work’ is not ‘hard work’ but overwhelmingly huge amount of work that gets people to a breaking point when they finally decide to quit. I have been in this business for a long time and I have always given my best, but I no longer want to accept work for three people as a norm of hard work. How much longer do they plan to keep overloading people so much? Until everyone leaves?

Bank it and bolt on your own terms.

Yep, collect your bonus. Hope you vested some retirement benefits and move on. We have learned that no changes or help is coming unfortunately. I predict a slow exodus starting in January after bonuses are locked it…

Management has clearly given the signal they want to look like a modern tech company (mental health, diversity, customer experience first, blah blah) but it is just lip service. Outsource and squeeze productivity to its max is really the name of the game. Musical chairs each round of layoffs and less career upward mobility.

Actually, it can go on like this, you are owned and you will comply, or go, nobody cares frankly.

Sounds like you just need to work harder. We want people that are 100% brought in. We also need people back in the office. Of course you will feel stressed sitting at home all day!

I am sympathetic. Here's the problem. You can either do the job of three so that your relative ranking will come out "meets expectation" or you can say that you want to get more work-life balance back and even when you completed all of your objectives, they'll say, "below expectation" because the guy next to you was willing to take on the work load of three people.
