Making yourself more marketable

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

Motivation zero

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 

People complain a lot

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

After a full day of working here I don't have it in me to try to improve my skills or knowledge and look for a better job

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 


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 

Reporting Violations

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 

Take care of yourself first

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 

Oh, not again

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 

Don’t worry

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 

Don't quit

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 

Can this mess be fixed?

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 

Severance pay time

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 

Any word about layoffs?

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 

Set to fall?

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 

David Craig going

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
