ricoh telling investors (spun message to dealers) they are getting out of print... and into "Digital Services" … brilliantly vague enough to mean just about anything. Like xerox they're also relabeling the same 3rd party engine and intent on pushing... — read more
Topics regarding layoffs at Ricoh
Ricoh has a history here. Anyone seen signs of this recently? https://www.forbes.com/sites/deborahljacobs/2013/11/03/11-sneaky-ways-companies-get-rid-of-older-workers/?sh=95982e56d0e8
So Ricoh is in a new fiscal year, what lies ahead? I am looking for the good and bad. Seems like mostly negative stuff on here so maybe someone can enlighten us without fluffing it up.
Seems like there is no push for anyone to perform. I don’t even believe texts are being judged by the numbers they are putting out. Sales seems to barely be placing anything. What does the future hold…?
Hey all you disgruntled past employees and naysayers.....where's the beef? Still working. 37 years with the company and still ticking. The gloom and doom hasn't hit my marketplace, and probably won't. Look forward to another 6-7 years before... — read more
Ever seen first hand how reps bundle unsought stuff into mfp deals to hit targets / spiffs? What's your confidence level that the Docuware 40% increase in business is actually being used by customers?

I stopped by to see what’s going on in my old company. Judging by the posts, nothing new. Is it possible that they don’t even want subpar workers now? ricoh has not wanted “fantastic” workers for a long time as higher tier talent costs money. Now... — read more
I am thinking Ricoh doesn’t even know how they are functioning as they move forward. They seem to push all the motivated fantastic workers out the door and rely on mostly inefficient managers to pretend what they do counts. Maybe spend a... — read more
https://www.industryanalysts.com/031021_ricoh_wh/ Wait up... serious back pedaling. Ricoh not out of print, in fact there is an "expansion of print"... Bloomberg article was just a "misunderstanding" by the journalists covering event. Investment... — read more

This is for employees who have been with the company for 15+ plus years: how many strategic moves, policy changes, slogans, buzzwords, or any other ideas that have come from management, have actually made a positive impact on our business? I'm really... — read more

All they gotta do now is buy up some bargain college dorm room companies so made up hooey slogan, "Digital Services Company" makes some sort of sense. I can't believe people are buying this... — read more
Without any exaggeration, I do the amount of work for three people. I doubt that other people's situation is any better. After more people left, I expected them to be replaced. However, this has not happened, nor is there any indication that it could... — read more
After reading alot of negative reviews about bad managers, bad products and horrible work ethic. I was wondering why Ricoh don't have a union
So much easier being a ricoh tech with incredible technological leaps in innovation like this!
I've lost touch with my old co-workers over the past several months, mostly I felt too embarrassed I am still collecting UI, however, I'm insanely curious to know what is going on. I know alot of what is posted on here is rumor and conjecture until... — read more
IF ricoh is good at anything its keeping everyone but Japan senior management in the dark and being vague about any specific direction. Maybe they should get into the mushroom growing business. I'm not anticipating any big reveal April 1st but the... — read more
What’s the rumors and predictions for April first for Ricoh? I heard 5 new Ricoh companies to replace the one large direct organization. Will they maintain sales and service or just be a manufacturer that supports dealers? If its all changing... — read more
Was just wondering if anyone noticed anything just before the voluntary separation emails were received over the last couple of years. About two or three weeks before the email came, we had an office meeting. Before the meeting started, the manager... — read more
No surprise, dismal Q3 results, losses across the board. https://www.printweek.com/news/article/ricoh-results-reflect-covid-impact Hang on for the ride or bail before the ship sinks?
Nothing is impossible but I wonder if you believe there is a high probability that by next year Ricoh will be out of business (as someone wrote on this forum). I personally hope that this will never happen, but without all those great people that... — read more
Ricoh of old is long gone, it's no longer even a shell of its former self. There are people who like to cling to the past but it's time to be realistic about this place. I would advise everybody to look for a way out. I doubt the situation will... — read more
ricoh has wanted out of anything to do with print in the worst way for years. Problem is they could n't just walk away from it and now are drastically running out of time and resources. Just too many albatrosses around its neck. If question was "Sink... — read more
I heard there might have been some layoffs today, is this true?
No communication from management. No career goals, no raises in quite some time......What lies ahead for April 1st?
Somebody mentioned there might be another round of layoffs in January, has there been any news on that?
Ohhh, ricoh. Spent decades reacting and modeling xerox. Ricoh chased xerox right down the drain. The only thing ricoh will produce soon are HUGE power point decks trying to convince customers and internal rubes to drink their kool-aid made from... — read more
Wrote this on different thread decided to post on it's own. Here it is as I see it. Been here thru the IKON/Ricoh route a very long time. That being said Ricoh is much better at keeping their strategy plans from leaking than IKON ever was. Anyway... — read more
Wanted to inquire whether there has been a large furlough or lay off of employees in Connecticut within the past 6 or 8 monthes ? Specifically the Springfield, Glastonbury and Rocky Hill copier technical training division? Thank you
I think Ricoh should buy another manufacturer like Kyocera during this time. It would expand footprint in sales and service and secure some faith in the company as a whole. Patiently waiting for April fools day.
Next month or will they wait until next year?
Puzzling that there's such a big discrepancy. Reviews are either, "the worst place on earth" or "everything is awesome!" Last few reviews are all glowing positive... looks like north of the border is now the land of milk and honey. Well done RCI!
