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
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
Wow this company feels so disorganized with no governance in place.. I recently joined and I am questioning my decision. Anyone feels this way?
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
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
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
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
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
Do you ever wonder what happened to change things so drastically and land us where we are now?

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
Finally Lenovo listened and got rid of the most toxic “leader” ever.
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
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
Why are there rumors about layoffs before the end of the year? Has Lenovo ever laid off people so close to the holidays?
Is anyone hearing rumors of possible vaccine mandates at Lenovo?
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
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.
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.
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
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 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
I left ten weeks ago but it feels more like ten years ago, considering all the improvements in my health and overall life. A long time ago I liked working there but the company has changed drastically. I was constantly stressed out - from being... — 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
I’m sick of people injecting tremendous negative energy into our work environment with their subtle bullying. It is amazing to me that such people are not not punished but instead they are progressing at Lenovo. I can only conclude that they are... — read more

The year over year compares will stink this year Plus an odd numbered year ( no major elections ) will mean extra layoffs this year Update the resume. DCG in the US will be gone By end of summer
It is that time of year again. The layoff cycle will be upon us in the next 3 weeks. Most likely May 25th or May 27th.
Lenovo has been hiring lower paid contractors a lot for the last 9+ years now. Take for example the inside sales team on the PC side. They seem to rotate in 20 or more new contractors (most have less than 5 years of sales experience) every quarter... — read more
I know how getting laid off would affect me - it would bring me a relief, but I am interested in how it would affect Lenovo company as a whole. Would another round of layoffs ultimately bring anything good to this company? Will layoffs slow down... — read more
I am almost 50 years old and I am pretty sure that I will be the target for the next layoffs. How do I feel? Not good. Not good at all. My friends try to comfort me that it doesn't have to mean that I will be the target, but I can feel it. I find it... — read more
With the announcement of Apple HQ coming to RTP, it will be bad news for Lenovo employees. Lenovo can't compete with the salaries Apple is going to have. They may lose some people to Apple, but the general tech salaries are going to increase beyond... — read more
