We'll have major layoffs either this or the following month. All things point to that.

I heard that by Oct 1st the only service RIcoh direct is retaining is Production print. Most will find out by the end of August. Anyone else hear this information?
Imagine Change/New World of Work= Get rid of your senior tenured talent and replace with cheap newbies. Customers love dealing with “cashiers in training.” Speaking of cheap, what’s with the sign on “bonus”. $500? $1250? These are like sales spiffs... — read more

I'm not going to claim that this is the case for everybody, but it certainly is for the majority of employees. Unless you know someone there is no chance to be promoted or moved around. I've been passed for promotions twice in as many years for... — read more
I was a Ricoh field service technician until just a couple months ago. I worked for them for 6 years. Some of the products are good especially the black and white copiers as they are more reliable and not so complicated to work on because they are a... — read more
Incredible what this company puts on a stick and pumps up and down. Go back to sleep until you have something to talk about. Washing machine more useful than ricoh’s printers… better built and less expensive... — read more
With the launch of the WMT today, I've already applied for a few new jobs. A big part of this job is the freedom to work at your own pace, and as long as your calls get done & the customers are happy, you're free to do what you will. That's why we... — read more
Fujitsu shedding this piece of business to focus on growth and looking ahead into the a sustainable future… ricoh? Not so much. Ricoh basically a bottom feeder shopping for hardware tech at other companies’ garage sales. And it’s SCANNERS… ricoh... — read more
Xerox services received notification of new training courses on how to take Ricoh service calls. This happened with Lexmark, then they had service train on the equipment. Not sure what this spells for Ricoh, it definitely sucks for us since we are... — read more

In the last 2-3 weeks our field service team had 2 techs quit and find better paying jobs (no surprise there). Our service call volume was already high at that point as we never recovered from all the covid related job cuts and now we're drowning... — read more
Contrary to popular opinion, getting rid of experienced employees will not solve all of the company's problems, especially not those that were created by this self-serving management. This was attempted before by many and it always ended in disaster... — read more

Exciting new innovation is (drum roll) a water mill? Archimedes family getting any royalties for this? This 8th grade science fair tech makes photocopiers look cutting age. Maybe that was the strategy? Anyone still wondering why their ricoh job is... — read more
Does anybody know more about this?
I just see “devices” not being shipped. Can someone please define?
Ricoh is stuck in the past. It still clings to the way things used to be done 'back in the day' and makes no attempts to keep up with the times. Micromanaging is still a favorite strategy, and everybody is more concerned with corporate politics than... — read more
I hate my job so much that I'm now unable to enjoy my weekends properly. I can relax somewhat on Saturdays but come Sundays, the knot in my stomach starts to grow until work is all I can think about. I've been trying to find something new but so far... — read more
They just announced this baby sitting app for customers called where's my tech. The training video explicitly says that customers will be able to see where you live in the morning before you leave. This is insulting on so many levels. Most field... — read more
ricoh announced March 8 that they won’t be shipping devices to Russia. Why did that take so long? And why just devices and not toner and parts? I don’t think Oligarchs cheeks are drenched with tears because they can’t upgrade their Ricoh printer. And... — read more

I have heard that Ricoh is losing deals everywhere because of pricing. I guess more layoffs will happen once they give all their business away.
Why can’t ricoh develop its own solutions in-house vs buying? Not exactly rocket surgery? There’s a lot to be said to all about earning and learning your way into the business you want to get into… but guess it’s hard to develop for the present or... — read more
Existing Ricoh customer in PA just signed for a new Konica Minolta solution. Reason for the move, poor customer support at Ricoh.
Nothing but crickets in here lately. What's the latest from the front lines of Ricoh? Any new news about the much talked about transformation of the company from last year?
Guhhh! Why doesn’t ricoh just make quality products that people actually want. If and when you mess up take responsibility for it and do right by the customer... but not the Ricoh way. Just keep trying to bury it under a mountain of PR “news” and... — read more
It's ridiculous how some offices are stretched so thin and how some techs are constantly being sent out of their areas to help surrounding offices. The only thing keeping it from getting worse is that customers are leaving. Not a great either way.
I see it posted constantly but have no idea what it means. Can anyone enlighten me?
