ELT Arrogance beyond limits
Unbelievable arrogance on the all marketing town hall today. Our CFO Brigitte Trafford with her court climbed up to the heights avoiding questions from slido. Wondering what makes us joining her ridiculous show.
Refinitiv Poland - forcing employees to sign "blended" remote model
Is there a way to get other model then "blended"? My whole Team was forced to sign for 3 days in the office, even parents of up to 4 years old children. Some Team Leaders are ok with their team members working from home, but others started to use... — read more

Thoughts? Don’t be shy it’s anonymous
The biggest demotivators?
Is there a bigger demotivator than an arrogant manager who is impossible to talk to because he doesn't have enough technical knowledge and his ego is the size of a mountain? I can't wait to leave.
SLIDO question dodging in Town Halls
The next time you are invited to any town hall at this place see how many questions are dodged in Q&A at the end. It’s almost a tactic to delay the start or have the hosts talking for longer so they conveniently run out of time at the end. When they... — read more
Effort equals compensation
If I ever get paid more, then I will make greater effort, but until then I don't want to burden myself and ruin my health just so that someone else can be paid more. In fact, why do people do this to themselves, working till burnout without being... — read more
Anna Manz salary increase of £100,00
Anna Manz received a £100,000 increase from £650,000 to £750,000. Look at page 116 of the 2022 annual report. A 15.38% increase. Poor thing she must be suffering with the cost of living crisis. The guidance was to give bigger increases to staff on... — read more
Given the great news on results and planned share buyback, employees should expect bonuses and pay rises better than previous years right? ....
More layoffs soon
another round coming in Q1. Can anybody confirm this?
What is Betanxt?
What exactly is Betanxt?
4th quarter '22
Surprised to not find anything about this on this page. 80-100 people in the UK given redundancy packages. Not sure about how many in the other locations. The £50m additional cost synergies promised to investors had to come from somewhere.
Evaluated Pricing LSEG- do not apply
I have been working for this group for some time. Just recently I decided to look for another job and I have to say that most of the things said in these threads are true. Just a few facts: in 2018 almost 50 % of the staff was layoff and the roles... — read more
Would someone please provide me some history on this group and the Ft. Mill, SC location strategy? I’m looking at a number of job postings on Indeed—corporates, munis, derivative valuation leads and some analysts are being hired. Also, how is the... — read more
Nepotism In US
I’m a little surprised to not to see anything about nepotism. I was really surprised when I started at Refinitiv in the US how many relatives of fellow employees worked within the company and reported within the same organization. On one call with... — read more
Colleagues who left said it was a great move
I'm still in contact with some of my colleagues who left, and they all wonder what I'm still waiting for. None of them regretted leaving Refinitiv in the slightest. People finally got some relief. I would really like to hear from someone who... — read more
Can anyone explain BetaNXT? Did LSEG sell-off the BETA price of Refinitiv?
Just waiting for the package?
There are almost no reasons worth staying here anymore. I'm still here only because I don't want to miss the package.
It is very quiet here. Usually when it's quiet, something bad is actually happening. I hope that's not the reason!?
Annual layoff bonanza about to start
Rumours they want to cut 20% payroll costs in D&A, not sure if that’s across the board or just some functions.
Never laughed so much as I have over the last few days. Various Town Halls blabbering on about how good the culture. Oh my god are they blind. I’ve never seen so many people unhappy and furious as decisions being made. Lots of very talented... — read more
Managers need training
Most of the managers here have terribly bad managerial skills. The biggest mistake is that they approach everyone the same, they manage by fear. It is interesting to me that they still haven't realized that they will achieve better results by... — read more
Anyone got a clue how TF remains in charge of customer services? Never met a man who spills so much BS and breaks so many promises.
The amount of work
I feel anxious and overwhelmed by a mountain of work. I have been working here for several years and I have never had more work to do. I hoped that it would only be temporary, however, no, I am getting more and more work all the time. How busy... — read more
Why does Refinitiv keep bad managers?
It is very difficult for me to answer that question, because it is not at all clear to me why a company would sabotage itself with such incompetent people in managerial positions.
innovation is dead at LSEG
Learnt today that the innovation group is being disbanded, more amazing talent leaving the company, continued stream of best talent moving on to other companies due to incompetent management unable to recognise innovative thought leadership.at best... — read more

Comments / Thoughts from the recent announcements and movements?
Evaluated Pricing -It did it again
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 too hard on Refinitiv
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
How many of you would give your manager a passing grade if you got a chance to rate them?
I've had three managers since I started working here three years ago and I'm not sure which one was more incompetent.
Refinitiv is a sinking ship
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
TCS = Poison
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.
