Understand the new approach to filling openings is to notch JG level down at least one. This is an exec level strategy to get unwittinglies to accept more responsibility/blame for less money and to force so-called over paid staff out. Any intel out there? I know the pyramid narrows at the top but what's the use of sacrifice if you can't even have a chance? Views appreciated. The vice just tightens for even good folks.

Way too anal. When employed, everybody wants to (1) work with and for people they get along with, (2) trust to deliver, (3) know as competent and able, and (4) can be supportive. Whether it's your own start-up or in a company like Shell, what, you think someone's going to promote you and keep you around because you keep sending "intelligent" emails/txts out, never really engaging? Amazing how you rank and file miss so much.
Not a good endorsement for shell then
arrogance and greed, yes. the saying actually went "it's not what you know, it's who you blow" many of these so called managers only got promoted because they would "cozy up" to someone who could help push them along, even though they were in not even the least bit qualified to handle such responsibility. In most cases, that person transforms into the I know it all, I've done it all, and anything that goes wrong on my watch is certainly someone else's fault. It's not how you play the game, it's how you place the blame!
Arrogance and greed go hand in hand
My supervisor used to say 'it's not about working hard, is who you know ' if you want a higher JG, and he's evidence of that, because he's not qualified for the job he's doing, in fact, on the last MOR he didn't even get his job back, but thanks to a friend he got an even higher position
Geez there are some dumbf---- in this company. Shell used to be the best in the industry but not anymore with uneducated numb nuts running around.
Come on losers, no more insults?? oh....maybe you have to get up and go to your cushy (Saturday morning) Shell job tomorrow morning? Can't figure out a way to create wealth past your next 2 week pay check? LMFAO Ha ha ha! [email protected]$er! I'll be having coffee in the Rockies by 10am, maybe; you'll be trying to figure out how to stay employed. Have a great rest of the weekend, [email protected] All the best, signed a wealthy knuckle dragger, KMA...MF:-))
Woohoo! Waking up in Katy, Leatherhead, etc and you have to drive/transport down to the pickup point at 5:30/6am; you want to do this for 30 years, desert your family for the Shell pyramid? Yes, [email protected], I know what a pyramid looks like. You call it what you what. You idiots don't even have a US passport and have never been out of Trumpland. so love your US BS
Love winding you work-a-day idiots up!! Such intelligent replies! Hope you enjoy working every day and figuring out how to stay employed, staying one pay check ahead of foreclosure. You might do better if you were able to communicate more intelligently.
We don't need knuckle-draggers like you in this company. Take your antiquated opinions and blow smoke somewhere else . Suggest you are more suited to working as a service contractor.
Actually I am pretty sure it's knuckle heads like all y'all who have dragged what was (circa 20 years ago) a good company. Forget JG for a minute (I know it's hard for you douchebags), if people are "accountable" for decisions for which they lack competency, how are they to be "blamed" when the decisions yield profoundly negative consequences? RDS management value yes men (yes persons if you prefer) this places anyone with the competence to say "no" when the situation demands at a competitive disadvantage. Many very bad outcomes are on the path RDS is on. I will enjoy every one, and hope one results in a debilitating injury to you and your colleagues.
I agree with you. It's clowns like this who drag this company down.
You know the pyramid narrows at the top? You must be clever but everyone knows that cuz that's what a pyramid is! Maybe you should spend your severance on getting an education.
