I caught that too, right away, because I was confused as to why Shiv would give Tom a position over a division that she just minutes before proposed to eliminate. Then I remembered that none of them, including Shiv, has a lot of respect for Tom. I think he is disposable to Shiv, and that maybe she's already plotting an exit plan from the relationship.
Tom is a ridiculous, grovelling dullard....who agreed to an open marriage on his wedding night. Yikes.
