John Hancock layoffs before year end

On a all RPS division call on Wednesday, Pat Murphy said there will be layoffs before the end of the year. Seems to act like they don’t know numbers or which deptartments will be included.

John Hancock Layoffs Coming?

Rumors are starting to fly that there may be an email that goes out today announcing layoffs ahead of the Town Hall meeting tomorrow. Sincere Bain has been crawling around the offices since the 1st of the year you know they are coming.

Being Let go from the hell hole.

Was with the company for over 10 years and was let go from a boss who lied and was deceitful. Manulife is a terrible place to work. Best thing was being let go from that hell hole. I feel so much better. They treated everyone like crap and at the... read more

Mid level management is absolutely incompetent

Gulloin can't increase revenues so he's cutting expenses. Gave himself a 22% increase to 12.5 million in 2013. This is for a stock that is still down 50% from 2008. Most employees have not received inflation increases in over 6 years. It's no wonder... read more

Emloyment Lawyers Regarding layoff packages or wrongful termination - they are excellent in the renegotiation of the package. Don't sign anything as the offer on paper is low balled. This law firm has handled many several cases!... read more

The worst of it

The worst of it is choice is either the Business System Analyst work that you are not actually supposed to be doing or no work at all. You tell me you will go around asking for a review?

More Problems than you think

In addition to that, I had to spend most of my time calming a kid because he wants to be a "developer" who doesn't really code. Should have signed up a daycare instead of JH.

What is your problem?

I never was given any assignment directly. A business analyst gave me his work to do, and I never figured out why I was doing on his work.

Never received performance review for 2 years

Did this happen to anyone? Does anyone know if people could submit our performance reviews without us seeing it? I worked for JH for about 2 years but never received any performance review. I lost my job before my second year tenure, but all this... read more

Layoffs continue

The multiple names in a box for each role to make sure the best talent is retained is a myth. Look you leaders in the eye and ask them if they believe the words they say about the process of who stays and who goes. It is not about "the best person"... read more

Low moral?

A job is what you make it. We have seen none of the "doom and gloom" layoffs etc. Even the few who were made redundant last year were (for the most part) people who either wanted to go or should be going. Moral is just fine in the area where I work... read more

Time for a survey

I think it might be time for a employee satisfaction survey. Let's see what the pulse is. From what I hear, the moral is so low, it's become just a place with a pay check attached.

@818 - Well written, clueless, but well written? I'd bet you are managing a large group somewhere in the Philipines, so from your point of view your statements might somewhat make sense. Yet, once you and your 4000 folks get farewell notes and work... read more

No layoffs but resources were re-allocated and some resources were given and end date where no further money would be paid to them by the company. No offshoring but resources were provided jobs at the company's global office in China and Philippines... read more

There are no firings

The only firing is the gun that is aimed at the merciful sheep that are blindly grazing on the green known as Manulife. These quiet lambs go blindly about their business. Eating, pooping and naying the day away. Oblivious to the ruthless deceit... read more

To the clueless annonymous

Somebody's head is so far up, they are unable to see. How do you actually perform your job at Manulife? when you keep saying there are no layoffs? I hope that is a sarcastic comment, or maybe what you are trying to say is, there are no layoffs... read more
