OK, I understand that it's hard to make yourself indispensable to Refinitive, but I'm wondering what to do to stay marketable and irresistible to a new prospective employer after a long time here? _______ I have colleagues who, after 5, 6, 7 years... — read more
They probably think that it is unnecessary to motivate employees in some way. I guess they think that having a job is motivation enough in itself. I gotta admit, I don't even know what more could be done to boost the morale here? Even if they gave... — read more
It’s okay to be dissatisfied and look for something better. However, I have worked in several companies in this industry and I can say that none of them were much better. It all depends on someone's priorities. Someone will say that it is much... — read more
I don’t think I’ve ever worked more than I have in the last year. However, they judged me to be underperforming. I worked more extra hours than ever. Of course, for nothing. If I gave 100 percent of myself in the past, during this year I gave 120... — read more
This is the worst. Day in day out I work here even though I don't feel any satisfaction and yet after the workday ends I just... drift through the rest of the day. I know the only way for me to get a better job is by improving myself in one way or... — read more
No sense in continuing to do extra work for nothing. My manager has noticed that I no longer work as much as I did before and I'm expecting to hear his criticism,,,,,,, Everything I have done so far will probably be belittled, because this company... — read more
So if someone gets graded underperforming because every manager has a target if 10% of staff underperforming. What happens next? If for some reason they decide to stay in role and not leave will they be made redundant? If they are in impossible role... — read more
Has there been any info on more layoffs that has been confirmed by an official source?
I'd rather work for a company that CFTC hasn't ordered to pay a civil monetary penalty for swap data reporting failures, so I wouldn't have to read news like this: The regulator added that Refinitiv was aware or had reason to suspect that this was... — read more
I'm totally disappointed with this company. Refinitiv's main strategy seems to be cost cutting and I'm wondering where will such a strategy take it?
I absolutely understand all those who say they don’t give their best because it’s not worth much here. However, I'm not sure what it means when someone says that they do the bare minimum. In my case, that minimum - what needs to be done - is still a... — read more
Here's some honest, if painful advice. Start working on your resume and looking for a new job, if only for your own sanity. The senior leadership are jumping off with their golden parachutes and don't give a flying cr*p about you. Your superior... — read more
What are my chances of being cut next month?
I don't understand how they think it is sustainable, whenever someone leaves their work passes on to those who remain. Ever since my colleague left, his job has been done mostly by me. Now there is a person who was supposed to be a replacement but... — read more
I was made redundant last year. With the redundancy package and a job in a lot better company with management who know what they are doing, I’m so happy now. Don’t worry there is a better world outside Refinitiv! Those of you who are working... — read more
I'm getting more and more worried each day.
DC gone, DW retiring, ED leaving next year... What are your thoughts on this?
It's my second anniversary with Refinitiv this week and trust me when I tell you it hasn't been fun in any way, shape, or form. Maybe I got unlucky, but between an as----e manager who uses fear as a management technique and constant increases in work... — read more
October is a month away, anyone worried?
What’s Refinitiv’s reputation like at the moment after 3 plus outages this year? Guess LSEG must be having buyers regret now.
I am looking for a new job. I am beyond frustrated. Once someone announces their departure, there's no recruitment and no knowledge transfer. There's no planning, only putting out proverbial dumpster fires. Will the management ever wake up, or will... — read more
Users in Asia and the Europe, Middle East and Africa region were most affected, leaving them able to see news headlines and prices but unable to open articles or data tools. Reuters said it was unclear how many of Refinitiv’s 40,000 customers and... — read more
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
