Thank you to The One responsible. Versatility of this garment can not be overstated. Formal occasions, funerals, weddings, Bar Mitzvahs, Zoom calls? Obvious YES, but also as sleep ware, business casual, yard work, grocery store, proctologist exam... — read more
Topics regarding layoffs at Ricoh
After all the furloughs, voluntary separations, and not so voluntary separations, how is your area holding up? Are you back to pre-COVID workloads? Will your existing staff be able to handle that when most companies are back to near normal... — read more
Given what’s going on, would we be shocked if more fiscal shenanigans soon come to light at ricoh?
Never been a fan but given what’s going on might be worth looking into?
Managed Print Services (MPS) Awareness IT Services (ITS) Awareness Fundamentals Managed Services Offsite Production Support (MS OPS) Awareness Basically Ricoh saying to the employess that are left. Please help our failing business model out? If... — read more
Sure there is much more to come as they "transformate".
Overworked and Overstressed. They continue to dump the workload on you even though they are short staffed and say its your fault it didn't get done. Its becoming very abusive and mentally exhausting.

I am not sure if you know this Ricoh, but a little over a year ago you canned all your sales reps and cut sales to the bone. But now you want to talk about how sales will drive you? I'm so confused? Does anyone else think these videos are just to... — read more

Wow. I was concerned there for a bit. Looks like Everything is Awesome. www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/idc-marketscape-names-ricoh-a-leader-in-print-transformation-worldwide-301110925.html
Coming up on 12 years since the IKON purchase. Was the ROI on that better than 12 years of $1.6 billion compounding in a basic savings account?
Let's just say that Ricoh will be breaking up the company by April. So they are going the way of Xerox. Then they say that each company will be responsible for their portion of the company. They also mention that they need to speed up the process of... — read more
From what I've been seeing and reading here, it seems that the latest Ricoh layoffs have disproportionately affected older employees. Can this be proven in court? Age discrimination is illegal and if there is even a small chance to hold this company... — read more
Got the dreaded meeting invite titled "Field service update" supposedly mandatory call...6 of us regular employees with our Manager's boss...area director...like cattle lined up at the slaughter house....with HR representative via conference call... — read more
Can confirm about layoffs. Received a email to attend a conference call at 4. That’s how we were informed, by a conference call where no questions were allowed. Later I find out I was cut based on the company’s needs. Though I have over 3 comptia... — read more
Ricoh leadership keeps trying to cut its way to profitability. This hasn't worked before and it will certainly not work now. But that doesn't mean they won't keep trying. Maybe if we laid off the entire upper management and actually brought in some... — read more
Really? More layoffs? Ricoh was not able to find enough volunteers with the last offer? I call bulshit on that. What I'm guessing happened was that either the wrong people accepted the offer, or the plan was always to get rid of many more people than... — read more
Anyone have the inside scoop regarding the 19 people that got laid off in Concord, and another 19 in San Francisco? Curious what division was hit and what roles were affected.
Heard an interesting rumor. Come September, Ricoh is looking to do another VSIP. Anyone else heard this?
Furlough is better than a layoff. With unemployment and Fed money most are whole if not better off. Timed are tough for many companies, Ricoh included. We all could have been laid off. That would be quick and easy. Also your Manager got 3 weeks... — read more
It was about two years ago since I quit Ricoh and boy am I ever glad I did! Although most of my coworkers were fantastic people to work with the company was clearly failing in vision for future products and services. I mean when I first started... — read more
5 additional weeks of furlough on top of the 2 we already had. 7 weeks total that have to be done by July 31.
Furloughs on the way. Mandatory 2 weeks, apparently.
I know a couple of people who accepted the voluntary separation package. Things looked great last summer when they accepted the offer. The economy was doing well, stock market flying high, and low, low unemployment. All of that is gone now. Those who... — read more
Posted something about this yesterday, but it was taken down because it posted multiple times. Techs are being held to the same kpi’s as if it’s business as usual. It’s not business as usual. Many customers have closed or employees are working from... — read more
I’m sure many of you saw the email last week from our head of service. Those who can work from home due to coronavirus are being encourage to do so. The service techs however, must keep providing “world class service”. That’s it. No PPE, no... — read more
Sell off more customers to dealers? Cease operations in less profitable areas? Layoffs? Or will we see something positive for a change? What is the wisdom of the crowd? Managers have been holed up in meetings quite often lately.
So few employees may or may not know this but NLRB is a new that Obama passed which allows employees to have conversations about the company not to mention unions, layoffs, and any other details. You are in fact protected by this very law which... — read more
Any updates from Boulder? Layoffs?
Ricoh is shrinking. I’m sure some areas of the country are doing better than others, but it appears to me that the company is turning away from it’s traditional business of selling AND servicing it’s own equipment. It is allowing dealers to take over... — read more
Not getting a good sense of how many employees took the separation package. I only know of a couple in my area. What's everyone hearing?
Any truth to the rumor that managed services is being sold off?
There is most likely “dead wood” in every group. There are several individuals in my group who don’t deserve a job with Ricoh yet they remain. I’m talking about people who aren’t where they are supposed to be, sick days when they are not sick... — read more
I will probably accept the voluntary separation package even though I have zero prospects right now. I just have a feeling our jobs are in such jeopardy that we better take the offer or face being let go with much less. It really hurts to feel that... — read more
I'm not trying to be funny - I'm asking honestly. Ricoh has changed a lot in the past several years, to the point I'm no longer happy here. I've been wanting to leave for a while now, but the idea of a severance package is too enticing to just up and... — read more
HR was in the building today, training team is getting outsourced.
Ricoh again offering another round of voluntary separation Is this true? Who are the lucky winners?
