I'm unsure how much more of the constant news of hiring freezes and layoffs in tech I can take without going bonkers. I know things like this happen occasionally but I don't remember that it was ever this bad for so many companies - including the... — read more
I know profit is important, but when you're willing to go after profit at all costs then the company is going to suffer and ultimately fail. When they put profit above knowledge and experience by laying off some of the best and most senior employees... — read more
I love my job, but I don't love it so much that I constantly work overtime to get everything done. The manager does not care that his expectations are unrealistic, because he has probably never tried to do such a large amount of work by himself... — read more
Layoffs coming, Mark my words.
So did others get a higher raise percentage than usual due to inflation? I only got 3.5% so was expecting higher. Just seeing if that seems standard or if it's because my manager allocated the majority to all of his best buddies on the team.
So not sure if I am the only one that notice this but it seems to me Lenovo only cares to make more money and that’s all they talk about. Nothing about work life balance or providing employees with perks. I only been here for couple months but I... — read more
The place is a toxic mess that promotes bu-t kissing and yes-maning over the sharing of new ideas or offering suggestions that could result in improvements to current processes. We could be doing so much better with competent management in charge but... — read more
The workload is really huge and i have to find ways to cope with it. I am under tremendous stress and I am thinking of leaving as soon as I get a better offer. Maybe this overload is just a way for Lenovo to get rid of long-term employees? But... — read more
Anyone recently joined Lenovo and seriously regretting your choice? The large workload, the lack of process, anyone thinking of joining Lenovo, be careful they just push you in the deep end. Please tell me I am not the only one feeling this way
Wow this company feels so disorganized with no governance in place.. I recently joined and I am questioning my decision. Anyone feels this way?
It's hard to stay motivated with all the things that have been happening lately. It's not just the layoffs, but that's certainly part of it. The culture shift, political plays, and the lack of career progression are among the main issues that are... — read more
Layoffs in July and September this year. US. Don’t ask division. If you have ask then Yes. Good luck. Somebody provided a hint of coming layoffs in another thread but gave no concrete details. Is there any chance somebody can confirm this and... — read more
Either Taiwan is getting pressured by China to not pull out their business or these companies simply do not care and prefer profit over bloodshed. The former is more acceptable but there have been other Taiwan companies that have pulled out of... — read more
I've been considering leaving Lenovo for over a year but I always found a reason to stay. Not anymore. I refuse to work for a company that profits from genocide one day longer than I have to. I've been looking for the past few weeks and I already... — read more
If you have a better way to describe Lenovo, go ahead, but I think those four words sum it up rather nicely.
I just read this article on the diversity and inclusion initiative: https://www.computerworld.com/article/3651048/lenovo-diversity-inclusion-tech-employees.html and the question arises as to whether Lenovo has become inclusive for all but those... — read more
Old article from Harvard Business Review that confirms what we already know: we don't need half the management we have. Even that is probably too much. https://hbr.org/2016/09/excess-management-is-costing-the-us-3-trillion-per-year
There are growing expectations from employees at Lenovo. Employees must always meet their goals. But what about the company? Does it seem to me or does this company have no clear long term strategy with clearly defined ways to achieve its future... — read more
When will Lenovo be returning to office or will it be flexible for remote?
Do you ever wonder what happened to change things so drastically and land us where we are now?
From my personal experience, yes, it is true, it's a sweatshop here, workload is often unrealistic, deadlines are getting shorter, favoritism is very present, etc., but I managed to ignore it all and was only interested in upgrading my skillset as... — read more
We used to know where this company was going, what the long-term goals were, how to achieve those goals, etc. Does leadership now seem to you as if they have completely lost their direction? Nobody cares what will happen to this company in 10... — read more
The attrition that is causing the rest of us to get burnt out because we have too much work to do for one person? I would like to know since I'm not noticing any moves made in that direction. Do they think things can go on like this forever? There'll... — read more

Why are there rumors about layoffs before the end of the year? Has Lenovo ever laid off people so close to the holidays?
As a contractor to the Federal Government, the NA Site Committee has decided we must comply with this Executive Order. Given the continued disruption caused by the pandemic and similar policies enacted by major US employers, Lenovo is requiring all... — read more
When I think it can't get any worse, Lenovo surprises me. I was really hoping that things would start to get better, but despite all my hopes, this place is doomed. Unfortunately. I think Lenovo could have done a lot better.
Does it make any sense to celebrate when one toxic topdog leaves the company because this company is full of such people? I don't expect anything to get better. I can only get better somewhere else.
Finally Lenovo listened and got rid of the most toxic “leader” ever.
It is very obvious what Lenovo is doing. Most of all, they would like people to leave so that they would not have to give them severance and so that the media would not write about layoffs. That’s why whoever I’m talking to has been under a lot of... — read more
Whoever I talk to from colleagues, everyone is actively looking for new jobs and plans to leave here next month. Me too. Nothing could keep me here, not raise, not better benefits... because the atmosphere is terrible. I thought there would be some... — read more
Is anyone hearing rumors of possible vaccine mandates at Lenovo?
Is it just me or are layoffs less frequent than before? For a while I heard almost every day that someone was laid off. It seems to me like the situation as far as layoffs are concerned is a bit more stable now? At the same time more and more... — read more
This has crossed every line. Favoritism has always been present here, but now it's happening to such an extent that it leaves no room for hard workers. Hard work seems to have never paid off less. It becomes humiliating for any honest and... — read more
Is there anybody here by any chance who has quit in the past several months or so? I have an opportunity for a new job but it's supposed to start on the 14th, which leaves me with only a week's instead of a two weeks' notice. I'm hoping that Lenovo... — read more
