Refinitiv Layoffs

Topics regarding layoffs at Refinitiv

Refinitiv should be ~ 445 people total

20 x 10 person dev team (and thats really generous) = 200 Support, deployment, etc = 200 people (generous) Legal, etc = 20 Hr = 5 (not sure why 0 isn't the right number) A few decent pms = 20

Anyone happy at refinitiv?

Nearly a year since I was laid off. It was miserable waiting for the axe to fall. Now things are much better for me. Just wondering is it working out for people still there?

Bloomberg still kicking your butt?

Bloomberg was kicking TR/refinitiv’s butt for a long time. Leaner, meaner, smarter people, better products. Is that still the case?

Goodbye KYCaaS

Goodbye KYCaaS and the 100’s of staff that have sweated blood and tears for that business over the last few years. Writing was on the wall. Laughable that this decision was based on “Refinitiv’s unwavering pursuit of growth!”

Can we change our business strategy?
