Anyone seeing issues with their (and the employers) contributions for the new L&G pension plan?
New boss, more resignations and the same director doing whatever he wants. Municipal Team: evaluators and managers close to the market are gone. This happened as a consequence of a the relationship between the interim Muni director and one person... — read more
Comments / Thoughts from the recent announcements and movements?
The municipal team had 4 resignations in the last 3 months. Another great evaluator is leaving next week. Only two experts left. The Bear Sterns crew is looking for a Municipal Evaluations Manager. We are sure they are not looking for talent... — read more
You all are being hard on Refinitiv - I worked there for a year and a half and it was pretty great. Actually, I should say I "worked" there for a half a year. They had some pretty awful projects and there wasn't much real work going on. The last... — read more
I've had three managers since I started working here three years ago and I'm not sure which one was more incompetent.
Nobody is happy, everybody is overworked and underappreciated. The increases we get - if we get them - are so low they don't even cover a third of the inflation. No matter how hard you work you will not be rewarded by the management - all they will... — read more
Anyone being offered a position at TCS do yourself a favor and decline. They are an absolute sh!tshow of a company. Mangaement/HR the worst.
Evaluated Pricing also known as TRPS, is going to start moving NY heads to South Carolina. They have picked the perfect person to execute this new strategy. New municipal roles will be hired in Costa Rica and Fort Mills. The job market is good for... — read more
Share price up, bonuses up based on the results, wasn’t expecting that after all the negativity. Man, my bonus way bigger than I expected. My Mrs is gonna be so happy.
I'm yet to find one person who's not planning to leave as soon as they can. What's going on here? I know things are not great but I don't think they're that bad either. Is it simply because the job market is so good right now that people don't want... — read more
I am so happy about getting an offer. The manager really was a nightmare. However, now that I have received an offer, I am worried because it is a direct competitor. I guess there shouldn't be any complications resulting from that? I hope not. — read more
Heard rumours the leader is not working anymore, really shocked and surprise to hear that. Anyone know situation? Not getting any answers in Warsaw.
rumours are that TCS have asked some (but not all) UK based ex Refinitiv Tupeed staff to sign an NDA. does anyone have any more info around this and why the devide?
As ex Reuters staff process what is happening to their RPF pension, how many will just give up on the job? All that experience and project knowledge lost in a short period. Great move LSEG but at least you’ll save money and we won’t be missed because... — read more
So I'm in this company for a long time 15 years+. I'm a mid-level manager. I cared a lot for the product, service, customer experience over the years. An I felt I got support from leadership team. Until Blackstone came. It got worse. But I thought... — read more
On one of the townhalls Q&A the question was asked: "Most countries have high inflation (US is 7%) while annual salary increases are 1.75-2.25%. How is the company to retain talent with -5% annual decreases on real term". Answer by leadership: "We... — read more
It's worse than I could have even imagined. We lost more than half of our team in the last three months. Getting their positions backfilled is not going great, either. I don't know if it's the lack of good candidates or if the management is not even... — read more
I think that those who have a bigger skillset and more talent think they are safer here. It is quite certain that this company no longer wants talented people. If it were otherwise, Refinitiv would do its best to keep them. Do you agree? It's a... — read more
This just relates to Uk as I know it’s different all over. How does the new grading system affect bonuses this year? Thought I read something somewhere but can’t find it.
So if I am going to hand my notice in and I do it before March but am still in notice period till end of April will I still get my bonus or is it best to hold off until beginning of April to hand notice in
Salary increases will be way below inflation in the US, UK, Hong Kong and other high cost centers. Members of LSEG Exco believe that employee engagement could increase with recognition bonus points. The equivalent of gift cards. So you might be... — read more
I was put on PIP and it was a big surprise for me because I worked more than ever. So I guess there is no reliable way to survive PIP? For private reasons, the worst thing that could happen to me at the moment would be to lose my job. I would love... — read more
Is everyone graded underperforming in one area automatically put on PIP?
A coworker who is one of the hardest working men I know was recently put on PIP. He has been butting heads with our manager for a while, so that could explain it. He believes there's no beating this and is already looking for a new job. I'm wondering... — read more
People looking to advance their career at Refinitiv don't need to focus on working hard, but on kissing the right butts. Make sure that your manager knows he can't do wrong, that every idea that comes out of his mouth is fantastic, that he deserves... — read more
I know some people are staying because of severance and frankly, I think that's a huge mistake. Severance never lasts as long as you hope it will. I know, I've been laid off from another company before. Right now, with the job market as good as it... — read more
So all exreuters UK staff will have their redundancy benefits reduced in line with LSEG. That the thanks you get for surviving the last 13 years of reorg after reorg. Note this only happened after the cleanout of management after the lseg... — read more
The previous meeting invite had a sli.do link. Some very interesting and embarrassing Qs were asked, and I was looking forward to the townhall, to see how the Qs get answered. Many on DS's 25% sal jump vs. the poor stock price performance, some on... — read more
I'm interested to get a feel for the forum and understand what other posters here see as the main benefit of TheLayoff - is it to learn about potential layoffs, to gossip, to vent at HR and management etc. This questionnaire is completely anonymous... — read more
I was listening with 1 ear due to a lot of work (Tue this week), but remember this: 1st part with both AS and DS participating: all is great, growth is good, future looks awesome, we will fire some more people in some areas, but give them... — read more
Those who complain about everything here? I don't want to sound sarcastic, but I'm really interested in why people who obviously don't like anything here don't leave? Especially now, when it's easy to find a new job. Perhaps I'm wrong, maybe for some... — read more
Any news if this is happening this year?
Is it possible that I don't know anyone who has left here, or got cut, that isn't much better off now than they were at Refinitiv? I intend to leave, but first I asked my former colleagues a little about their new companies because I know that no... — read more
Is it only my own experience? I've been choosing my own next work challenges not to get bored to death, zero signs of any kind of leadership from anywhere...
Is it possible to get a layoff.com page up for LSEG? How? Can anyone do this?
good read for those too busy (99,99% of us) to track what's been happening, check the comments too: https://www.ft.com/content/0c7c6931-9f56-4e43-87cf-91422630a146#comments-anchor
I don't understand those who have been complaining for months and years, and they are still here. I'm not saying this company is ideal, but it's not all that bad. There are also people who have regretted going to other companies, having convinced... — read more
New survey is out, described as confidential, then you have to enter your email and birth date to complete it - WTF?
Those who have no other option Those who need little experience Those you don't like To no one
