What happens if you get a low rating, are you asked to leave?

A low IPF usually means you're the first to go when the next re-org happens, I'd start dusting off the old resume and maybe start looking, the new CEO is likely going to make big changes and I smeall another re-org coming...
I know someone who got a lower rating one year, followed by a higher rating the next. Same line manager. “Lowers” happen and don’t necessarily mean termination, or even a PIP.
In some ways, it can be difficult to get laid off from Shell, especially compared to similar companies. Most people that I know who left did so because they were fed up with all the big company BS
Couple comments here that are true.
Your not the current "favourite" that is how it works at Shell. You have to suck up
Someone else needed your points. Likely true. When I was in ranking sessions it was actively discussed who we needed to move up in the pay sacale and how points would be distributed to meet that objective. It is a cr---y system but unless your manager has told you to move on keep your head up and it will be your turn to get ahead.
With a low IPF you know you're not the favorite of the current ranking managers, which is a tough hill to climb, so you're free to take your resume elsewhere and see how the rest of the industry values your experience.
You may not get a PIP, if the manager thinks they can coach you over the year, have a chat with them and get everything out in the open. But if the manager was any good, they would have picked this up before the review and helped you
you will get put on a PIP, so what. it just means someone else needed your points. I guarantee if you do nothing different, you will get an acceptable rating next year.
You might be okay I think a lot of people are leaving anyway they need people to fill seats
with a PIP i guess that means dismissal in 3 months?
Usually a performance improvement plan (PIP).
Nothing immediate happens. A low rating doesn't lead to instant termination.
