Manulife, something is wrong with the internal business structure if during mass lay-offs, “cost cutting” is the reason. It’s an ironic statement, from a company that has Finance in the title. This statement shouldn’t be an excuse from a company... — read more

Hearing rumours that they are at it again. 150 people affected in Kitchener Waterloo, the day before the 2017 bonus payout date. You had to be present on the day of the payout to get it. Wonder if the people shown the door made it out with theirs or... — read more
