You're an asset until the annual layoffs
Senior Advisor (Ancien employé) – Calgary, AB – 23 mars 2019
Regardless of how much great work you do, how much POEA nominations you've contributed, at the end of the day you are just a number of the 15000 staff in the company. They need to look at the bottom line to protect investor interests.
Depends on your relationship with your manager and director, you may be the name they will submit to meet the layoff quota to 'reduce cost'...essentially to protect themselves.
Over time, the organization became very top heavy. A team of 40 has 2 Directors, 11 managers, and 37 staff.
Another team of 20 has 1 director, 7 managers, and 12 staff.
With one manager only having 1 direct report.
Many leaders in the company are incompetent - many times you wonder how they got there; its really not what you know, but 'who' you know. This is very true at Suncor.
Salary, Vacations, Benefits
Incompetent leaders, annual layoffs or 're-orgs', no stability, which leads to poor morale
