Another half hour filled of 'weak' answers to important questions facing the department.
Was it posted anywhere?
It’s amazing how incompetent management is at NM! Especially in ICS. Been there over 4 years and kept doubting myself due my manager who only care about herself. Don’t let any senior leader in ICS bring you down or limit you! There’s really... — read more
Its unfathomable how we manage to keep things to a point were they are stable enough to work. From the silo's and walls put up to keep us from working together to NM's deployment of Jira. Other companies such as SCJ and Fiserv seem to do it... — read more
can we have less of that guy? how many want to see what he does for a job? i cant imagine the amount of money his organization is wasting at the company - its huge and is stacked with nyc deadweight. your welcome policyowners.
I need to get out of here. I'm sick of my toxic and incompetent manager. Trying to decide between just quitting on the spot, or stay and try to get fired/laid off. Does NML usually give severances to terminated employees? How long do you think it... — read more
Do you attend this meeting and what do you get out of it?
Just heard mumblings and a saw a few weekend posts indicating that ICS and Innovation teams in the tech space are going to be disbanded or reduced significantly end of month. So what happened to CM and JS saying "There are no plans for mass layoffs... — read more
Anyone else look at the org chart and see a class model? Minorities at the SME lowest level, whites in the SD, VP, ELG, SLT? Really makes you wonder, are these ERG’s just a good will cover?
One by one I continue to watch long term NM leaders get pushed out the door. Several more VPs and SDs in the last couple months. It’s endless. All this cutting of talent that has been loyal to making NM great continues to shred up the tattered... — read more
I used to be a motivated employee at NM. Worked extra hours, completed tasks outside my job description, complete extra training both in person and online. What did it gets me? Sometimes a 1.0% raise? Maybe 1.5%? What a joke! I'd spend hours... — read more
I'm shocked at how quickly this place turned from a normal to a toxic environment. I used to enjoy my job and now I hate having to even think about work and having to deal with all the politics and general abuse dished out by management. I can't wait... — read more
I wonder if JES will mention at the next townhall the headwinds that NM has with the spend of 1.3 billon on new buildings in Milwaukee and NYC? It must be nice to build a statue to yourself in your home city with company money. Then you have tiny... — read more
Are the rumors true?
The last of the pharma bro trio has bit the dust.
Where is NM's CHRO aka the silver fox? You would think that he would be out in front of this thing regarding burnout as its company wide or maybe I'm thinking as a leader and not an authoritarian like him. I guess he only comes out for talks about... — read more
Is Sangeetha able to make a statement without sharing her s-xist and racist views?
The truth behind the 401k match has to do with greed more than financial performance. The topic was again avoided at the Employee Town Hall and for good reason. Per the IRS, the maximum match that can be made is $20,500 or $27,000 for those over... — read more
I have a short commute so this doesn’t affect me but it has certainly affected my perception of the company. I don’t understand why those even with 1-2 hours of a commute one way have the same return to campus requirements. It’s a reminder to me that... — read more
Was just told during a leadership huddle that the company is staring to tighten its belt with the technology budget and they are going to reduce staff. Contractors are going to be evaluated and those not seen as strong contributors are going to be... — read more
Anyone else concerned with NM’s “both sides” stance on ROE? Seems like their D&I initiatives were what I thought- plain and simple pandering.
Don't like the door hit you ER!
In fact, NM may need many changes. I'm sure I'm not the only one who thinks that this company is stuck in the distant past?
I used to be proud to be a small part of this company, but today I am ashamed to still be here. Have you noticed how people outside have a worsening opinion of NM? It's sad.
Do you think nm will ever reinstate the 401k match?
I've stopped worrying about layoffs a while ago. So many people are leaving and preparing to leave that they're doing the ELT's cost-cutting job for them and better than they ever could with layoffs. After all, if somebody leaves on his or her own... — read more
Is this even possible? Honestly, I think that having a good mentor is a must here otherwise you just get pushed aside.
Once again it’s party time in New York city for leaders who spend more time pushing social agendas than leading. Waste.
Some say technology is getting better. Really??? I haven’t really noticed that.
Some suggestions from those who have departed. Spend as much time networking outside as you do in. You never know when a new boss, or a reorganization (perhaps orchestrated by CM the Destroyer, the king of meaningless reorgs), will turn your life... — read more
Any layoff news? Seems everything has become standstill! Manages cancelled meetings, delayed responses, blah blah blah…
I hope we are far from big layoffs. Unfortunately, the company obviously has a big problem with hiring. If in place of a very knowledgeable employee who left, they hire someone who does not have adequate competencies, I do not consider it a... — read more
I am very dissatisfied with the leadership here and have been trying to leave for three months now. I still haven’t found anything much better, but I’m not giving up. I'm getting less and less picky though. Are there any of you who would accept... — read more
Was NS fired for lack of vision or he quit because of NM culture?
NW has become a nursery of talent for other companies. I personally know a few people who have gone to direct competitors where they are now paid more. Interestingly, they also say that they now work even more than they did here but don't complain... — read more
After all, I have sent a lot of applications and I am sure that a new opportunity will open up for me. But it is still not clear to me why underperformers here are more valued than me and anyone who has given their best. It is humiliating... — read more
Has anyone else seen Don V's data organization featured in the Apple TV series about WeWork? If you watch the show it pretty much show's his vision (or lack of), just smoke, mirrors, and smiles. If you dont have Apple Tv then just watch the... — read more
Do you still like working here? What makes you stay here?
Careers section touts 401k match as a benefit but I heard it hasnt been offered in 2 years. Is this true? How does a company with so much $$ not take care of employees?
Data org is total chaos and unethical practices. Don has been in way over his head from the start. Continues to hire and reward incompetence, he brought in such winners like anju, joey, aaron. But directors always report everything is perfect and... — read more
