Topics regarding layoffs at Lenovo

Surprise?

This is not a big surprise to me. After seeing how Lenovo had treated their employees while working there, they are quick to lay off half of DCG and soon will be tackling the contractors next. A lot of this maybe from their tariffs they got hit that... —  read more

I hate the wait

Nothing here so far, but I think I'd prefer it if it was already done with - whatever my fate might be. Waiting and stressing is completely useless, and in many ways worse than knowing the truth, even if the news are not good. At least then those of... —  read more

Lenovo is done for and those jobs are not coming back

I heard that the people that were let go last year only got 6 month of paid cobra benefits. Half of what they provided to employees, if people decided to take the voluntary package. To the people that still employed by Lenovo. Look for another job... —  read more

Layoffs already happening

They are here. Redundancies happened in Asia Pacific this week. Is this true? I haven't heard anything but it would be good to know and prepare. Usually once layoffs start in other parts of the world, they are quick to follow here. It has happened... —  read more

Continuation of last week's layoffs

From what I gathered, both China and US were hit last week but only in small numbers, unless I am missing something. I'm worried that since the numbers were so small, we might be looking at continuation of layoffs sometime this week. Do we know if... —  read more

Does anyone know what the severance pay is like?

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

Time for Lenovo

To be on the auction block. Can’t be successful when it’s run by a government behind the scenes. Any takers?

Lenovo management should be ashamed

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

Sept 2017 layoffs

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.

Slow burn

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
