Earlier this week, a report from The Information revealed that Rivian is laying off roughly 20 workers on its in-house battery cell development team at the Illinois factory. The in-house battery development unit, including head cell engineer Victor... — read more
Amazon also announced an additional 9,000 layoffs. What does this mean for Rivian?
Marketing - Not going to happen. IT - Not going to happen. What you do want to do is make yourself useful and needed. Now is not the time to be seen slacking.
Still waiting for news. Anyone hear from what departments/ teams are most effected?
I told everybody I knew they should start looking for a new job after the first layoff was announced. Most people ignored me. I left for a new job a few weeks later and since then I've been watching as more and more layoffs are announced. I wish more... — read more
So the company cuts 6% yet they still are hiring and onboarding new employees? Entire teams cuts this week sending shocked people away as communications as recent as last week telling people the positive trends we are seeing. They are bleeding cash... — read more
What is it like at Rivian now? Is it a great employer?
It feels a bit strange that there's this hiring spree of people who didn't make the cut at Tesla after the layoffs last year. The financial losses were awful, the market is terrible, and it's not like Tesla was getting out the Cybertruck with these... — read more
We will need to show expense discipline to the Street to stop the bleeding. Hang on tight!
Anyone getting the feeling that something big is about happen in Normal?
Thought the Mercedes deal was a good thing for the company. Guess they thought otherwise https://jalopnik.com/rivian-backs-away-from-van-partnership-with-mercedes-af-1849881555/amp
I’m still mostly not vested and it’s getting to the point that I can leave it and go but do they give you more?
I am totally drained. I worked long hours at previous companies too, but nowhere was I under as much stress as here. Rivian is literally squeezing employees. I am satisfied with pay but I think that coming here was a big mistake and I would be... — read more
Anyone have any info? It’s been very quiet.
If it is true that there will be more cuts by the end of the month, does anyone have more details about who will be the main target groups?
Just heard from my manager more cuts happening end of month. Just got my list of names. Can't take this anymore
6 people on my team gave their notice the las 2 weeks. No quiet quitting here employees are quitting loud and clear. Be careful those looking for work if Rivian reaches out. Not a good culture now
What about employees who resigned BIG 3 and joined the dream of another Tesla?
Rivian is in freefall. There'll be many more layoffs before things stabilize once again. Thinking that you are safe because two major layoff rounds just took place is naive. I wouldn't be surprised if there are at least two more similar rounds with a... — read more
“I am proud of my product”
When will we be screwed?
Several Apple employees who went to Rivian for a bigger salary got laid off. The funny thing was the people they left behind at Apple didn’t miss them. Bad choice of job hops.
Unfortunate for those that got affected.
What's the story currently at Rivian? Is the whole company dying? Or just some departments? What's the mood there now? I'd guess too many working from home?
July numbers not looking good. One more round coming end of Auguat. Hang on folks it going to get bumpy

Once the earnings report is out we'll know more about what we can look forward to in the future. In the absence of any official word, this is our best way to figure out what's coming. It won't be hard to conclude if there'll be more layoffs soon or... — read more
I hope for the best but I'm expecting the worst.
Brutal seeing the shocked look on people. I was spared for now. Updating my resume now
Hundreds of people let go. Loyal people who were here in the early days. A lot of postings on LinkedIn saying how much they appreciate what the company has done for them . That’s BS. They screwed over hundreds of staff and managers with no empathy. A... — read more
