Hi, I recently received an offer to work at a competitor. Does this company have a non-compete clause anywhere? I will do my own due diligence, but it would also be very helpful if someone could also quickly confirm for me on here. I really hope I... — read more
Sometimes I wonder how our managers would cope in some other company. I’m almost certain that ordinary employees, hard workers, would fare much better than they would. It is nice and comfortable for them at Refinitiv. Outside of Refinitiv, I don't... — read more
I know more and more people are considering quitting but at this point, that would be a huge mistake, at least in my opinion. Refinitiv has been increasing layoffs and will continue to do so. If you quit now when you know more cuts are coming, you... — read more
When you first came to Refinitiv, could you ever have imagined that the company would become so degraded? I could never have thought that. I came here because I believed the company had a lot of potential and I think if some other people managed... — read more
What miracle needs to happen for this mess in Refinitive to be cleaned up? Problems just pile up, and leadership isn't solving any. When I think it can’t get any worse, this company convinces me otherwise. I used to think that at least some things... — read more
Hearing from teams affected in SC. Are they over?
I hear they're shutting down teams in Geneva and moving everything to Poland... does anyone know how bad it is?
Layoffs are scheduled for July and November. Two groups will be targeted: municipal evaluations and corporate evaluations. The longest serving director at TRPS has the mandate to protect CR from critics during the process.
I came here a little over two years ago and the situation in the company was not right even then. Let’s say it was bearable, but since then it seems to me that it’s getting worse every day. If the situation has ever been good, I do not believe that... — read more
I hear there are cuts everywhere. Judging by the tense atmosphere, I wouldn't be surprised if I was informed very soon that they don't need me anymore. So I'm wondering what are the typical packages? How generous are they? I don’t even know if... — read more
Hope Refinitiv came with a money-back guarantee cuz LSEG were sold a lemon. One whose juice was wrung out long ago by the constant layoffs of good, knowledgeable people. And it's only going to get worse. How many major outages has it been now on... — read more
I don’t know about other locations but at mine, it has been quiet for some time in terms of layoffs. Almost too quiet. If experience has taught me anything it’s that layoffs come in waves. A period of no layoffs followed by a period of layoffs. I... — read more
I never thought I would find myself in such a situation and, it may sound a bit arrogant, now I hope to become redundant. I think that the company is on a very wrong course and that it is set to fall. Although I am an optimist by nature, I believe... — read more
Everybody is talking about layoffs but I see zero details posted. Everybody can say layoffs are coming and be right - with this company we know the next one is on the way. But we need more. If you are really in the know, then let us know when, where... — read more
With the upcoming potential of more redundancies coming is it worth joining Unite Union? I reckon I could be at the top of the list as my boss has a vendetta against me and has caused me nothing but hassel over the last year. Even threatening... — read more
Assume it's his choice as he is staying till end of year but whatever happens he'll not be short of benefits. For those of us lower down the chain any news on UK layoffs? Assuming they will be picking off the 10% who are marked down as under... — read more
The more people leave voluntarily, the fewer they will have to lay off. I have been here for a long time and I notice that lately they have been using all possible ways to make my work harder, to get me to the breaking point and so I leave on my own... — read more
Does anyone else have the feeling that they are just wasting their time here? There is more and more talk of layoffs next month, but I am doing my best to leave even before I get into a situation where they tell me I am no longer needed here. I made... — read more
Anyone here who left to join a startup? If so I’d love some feedback on how that is working out for you. I’ve been offered a position with competitive pay and benefits with a small startup but I’m unsure if I should take it or not. I don’t want to... — read more
People were mentioning inevitable major layoffs a few months ago but nothing has happened so far. Did that rumor fizzle out or are those layoffs still a possibility?
I don't know what's your situation like, but I have never had less motivation for work. Creativity is at zero. I'm thinking, is this just a passing phase and is it just up to me to quit because I have nothing more to give to this company, or have you... — read more
Did Refinitiv and TCS conspire to send employees from Refinitiv to TCS under supposed SDDC project title and then 1 month in tell them there is no work so they wouldn’t have to pay severances?
Managers told that they have a target to rate 10% of team as underachieving at next review. So that was a great HR briefing yesterday in the UK. What happens if none of the team are under achieving, I guess a short straw challenge. Loved the response... — read more
Seems that anyone at or above Band K got a 0% sal hike this year, regardless of performance, and that performance ratings were only a factor for Bonus IPF. In yesterday's annual report though, it discloses CEO getting a 25% jump in fixed pay, in this... — read more
Thought by now there would be first cuts mentioned, not hearing anything in London any news elsewhere ?
Who are taking credit for someone achievements and exploit lower rank colleagues?
Remember this "rap song"? https://www.thelayoff.com/t/VCMIEEA "It’s like a Fintech and a Spaceship got together and mated; TR in our hearts as we progress anew; Put that orange in the background and replace it with blue..." So what's the LSEG... — read more
Culture clash. UK bureaucracy. Hothead AS. Tech integration a nightmare. 2021 here we come
Surprise! You're RIF'd. Sorry, don't know the extend or any more details.
When do they come through? Any rumors of how much, when and where?
Just wondering if anyone has heard of any layoffs in the Brookfield campus for the rest of 2020. Historically, layoffs are in November just before Thanksgiving. I haven't heard anything from my usual sources for THIS year.
After the posting of Refinitiv's acquiring AssetMark, what impacts do people believe will occur for BETA's Wealth Management Group? Thoughts?
Anyone know what the deal is with being assigned to Refinitiv HyperCare team ? Is it just another way in the end to get you outsourced to TCS?
Is that true Eagan office is closing down on December and all employees have been let go? Seems like lot of old timers in London have been let go, my linked in feed is full of looking for work statuses. But wonder why there are job openings... — read more
Wow.. so Q2 results show Refinitiv as 1.2 Billion cash rich, all growth areas are up, yet the evil that pervades decides now is a great time for mass redundancy. Refinitiv a shining beacon for all that is wrong in society. Rich 1% get richer and care... — read more
Question to leader - will we have layoffs ? Answer : No Translation : Yes, but just a few here and there Leader comment: I am so proud of you and would love to hear how can I help. Translation: I don’t care about you . If you dare to ask... — read more
It seems to me that the many groups that I am involved with are being pushed to change over their utilization of software (i.e. Jira) to be the same as others around the world, increasing cross departmental training, adding employees in areas where... — read more
Anyone who still has an original RPF scheme pension going check your statement as some going out with wrong salary figures and this could be harder to fix if any of us are laid off. Some have been wrong for years!
