I decided to leave Lenovo back in July 2017 when they gave the package of up to 26 weeks and 12 months of medical. I was afraid that If I stayed, Lenovo would cut the severance to match IBM to 1 month. Even my manager was concerned about the... read more

Topics regarding layoffs at Lenovo
Included people from Lenovo, Moto, Lenovo Technology Group. Something like 10% of the entire company workforce. Terrible company, rotten to the core.
To be on the auction block. Can’t be successful when it’s run by a government behind the scenes. Any takers?
Never buy the BS that management serves up. It's all lies. Until every executive is fired, including the emperor wearing no clothes at the top, nothing will ever change. Huge and bad business decisions impacting thousands of people reverberate... read more
I heard that more layoffs are coming in November. Anyone else hear anything like this?
Laying off people is always a difficult decision and I am sure Lenovo's executives have not made this decision easily... but the problem remains that good employees are the ones who pay for poor senior management decisions. Lenovo's strategy to... read more

Heard from someone laid off that there were 1,000 laid off worldwide. Apparently small numbers in most places do not to attract news media. Seems to have been a lot of senior I.e. Gray hairs to lower costs.
Lenovo continues to slowly circle the drain. It's been in trouble for years, with no end in sight. Executive team has no idea what's really happening and is trying to sell a vision that is fiction. Inept management from VP levels down. The writing is... read more
I think the writing was on the wall for all folks at Lenovo. After the server group was offered buyout packages a few months back, it was fairly obvious that some action would be taken with the PC and phone businesses too. I talked to my manager... read more
We are always the first to go - it happened again - if you are a contractor with Lenovo you are likely out sometimes in October. My personal departure date was set for Friday October 13. I am negotiating an extra week (as the transition will be very... read more
I'm getting ready to go into work, but I am dreading even the idea. I managed to survive yesterday, but many of my colleagues didn't. Yesterday was carnage. Anybody has any idea if it's done, or if Lenovo plans to continue with layoffs today? And is... read more
Unsure how many, but there are massive layoffs happening right now at Lenovo. Unfortunate for everyone affected. The PC business has been in trouble for some time, and after huge mistakes with IBM server business and Moto, have to cut somewhere. It's... read more
September layoffs have been whispered about all around for months now, but here we are, and nothing is happening. I know it's still early in the month, but wouldn't we have heard at least something from official channels if it was going to happen?... read more
Yes? No? Opinions? Cuts are coming to all groups, just don't know yet how many will be affected. Company is top heavy but few at those levels are ever forced out.
HR sent email announcing voluntary severance packages in US only. Affects most of Data center team in RTP. Decision required by July 7, will be notified of response by July 14. Offering 1 week of salary for every 6 months of service, max 26 weeks... read more
The server market is down big time, 7% down YoY and this will affect everyone. Intel is hurting, Dell is laying off, all big guys are cutting big time and Lenovo will be affected as well. Add to this chronically weak IBM and HP/HPE and you have a... read more
is it all in china now?
Maybe if you didn't embed your bloatware into the BIOS of computers, making it completely unremovable, people would still buy your products. Newsflash, when you sell a computer, you don't own it anymore and it's not right to do what you've done. I... read more
I think most of the cuts will be here in Lenovo USA. I am not sure what departments or groups will be the most affected but if you take in consideration the fact that we are very large and that we have large USA presence, that the USA folks are... read more
