anyone else seeing people leave like never before?

I’m pretty sure I’m going to get transformed and I have mixed emotions. It has been a good job for 25+ years and I appreciate it. And I will miss most of my teammates. I won’t miss going to work at what should be an enjoyable place to work but has instead been turned into a toxic wasteland by my local management here in Borger.
Wow...."younger talent"....in my experience, the "younger talent" are lazy, entitled, and prideful. It is usually the older experienced that work longer hours, take on projects outside of their wheel house, and listen to other perspectives. Let the younger ones go so the employees that actually take their job seriously can actually get the work done.
What’s really scary is all the young talent is leaving, the good ones that are getting better high paying, more flexibility. So what’s left, the older experienced employees know they are done, and just waiting for severance packages, not a healthy environment.
Seems like the only happy people are McKinsey. Hopefully they will go after mid to upper management. When will we ever get a update, almost August!!!
If you think you or your group is likely to be “transformed”, it’s a calculation between what you’ll get for severance by sticking around vs. getting a new gig but locking in presumably a better future. If you’re 10+ years of service, I’d stick around and see what happens. That’s assuming the severance gives you 3 weeks per year of service.
Agreed, both at the corporate level and at the refineries. The ELT and higher level management will continue to protect their salaries/bonus, no matter the cost to the employees that work 40+ hours. Any so-called transformation implementations just set the users back 20 years in software programs and processes.
Never seen it like this, but it’s direct consequence of the company’s actions, pre, during, and now post covid.
I see it both in person in Bville and on LinkedIn with people in Houston. This is specific to Finance and IT. Both groups have been wrecked through outsourcing, inflexible and autocratic leadership (sensitive CFO and the former ESG loving Controller), AE66 with its reactionary staffing and increasing steer/workloads, etc. I’ve seen people voluntarily leaving left and right like never before, especially since we haven’t had large scale layoffs. Sacrifice for the stock price! Kidding, your job loss won’t affect the stock price and management don’t give a Weezy’s greasy omelette about you! Unfortunate but true.
Yes - if the recent outsourcing last year is any indicator, why would anyone want to stay (who isn't laid off) to help the company fumbled through wreckage of what's to come
