So McAfee is being taken over by STG. What can we expect? Looks like more misery.
Topics regarding layoffs at RSA
This is very unfortunate. After 15 years at this place, I have slowly been losing confidence in the place I considered a home. The morale is at an all-time low. Most, if not all, have a foot out the door. If you don't, you were given a nice retention... — read more
I think it's clear to everybody and their mother that we'll be having major reductions in force sometime in the following months. There's not much we can do to change that, but what we can do is be prepared for what's coming. I've already updated my... — read more
You can blame current RSA management all you want. The real culprit for the death of a once cybersecurity name brand and icon is none other than Dell. They destroyed this company and then unstrapped the near dead, starving carcass off their backs and... — read more
STG is splitting RSA in four independent units, the NAM overlay positions will be eliminated in February. If you're a NAM at RSA, you better be looking for a new job now. There will be hundreds of NAM layoffs in February.
My sources tell me that the company they are breaking the company up into 4 units to be sold. That means lots more layoffs coming. RSA has no value as all of their products are old and tired. Rohit and Ted are the biggest id–ts and liars to the... — read more
Engineering Morale is about as low as I've seen it in the 12 years I've been here. There have already been a few fairly damaging defections and I have yet to speak with a colleague who has not begun to ramp up their search for employment elsewhere... — read more
So many people are thinking about quitting and I can't understand that. This place is far from perfect, but it's a job. A former coworker who quit five months ago to join another company has since lost that job (unexpected layoffs and he was the last... — read more
New owners have zero idea how much US support held it all together. They were blinded by id–tic charts generated by mo–ns in management that have no real idea how US support is the glue holding it all together. The ones remaining will not stick... — read more
Of course we had a Townhall where the executive staff used nothing but buzzwords. There are going to be more layoffs, it's all but guaranteed for Feb timeframe. They are separating all the lines into Business units, which wouldn't be cause for... — read more
RSA just had major layoffs at the beginning of September in all departments including a close to 50% reduction in marketing, support, engineering, finance, etc. The only reason sales, sales support, channel were not affected was to not disrupt... — read more
L1 ws wiped, does not mean it was JUNIOR support. Senior L1 is what does not require ATS and ATS were let go, too. Good luck, customers. Someone I talked to looked their recent acquisitions, so they might try to merge something in security with their... — read more
After last week's cuts has the dust settled enough to give out any new info for those who still remain? How the cuts were determined? Are there going to be more by the end of year? Any information that would benefit those of us who are still employed... — read more
Teams losing up to 50% of people. Layoffs in rounds.
Looks like Dell got fed up with the RSA malarky. No surprise when you have incompetent management forbidding use of Ruby, sticking with unpopular OS distributions like SuSE, and saddling customers with services that rely on proprietary bloatware... — read more
After a couple of bad quarters this year (after a good previous year), management took the 'difficult' decision to do a workforce reduction. I'm told it is across all divisions, but some more than others. Based on numbers in my region, my guess is... — read more
expect big changes at rsa, RSA Netwitness development environment hacked, struggling to contain the damages, Disney livid about horrible security issues in Aveksa LNG, LNG spiraling out of control as management crawls out of the swamp looking for... — read more
Don't believe management (sorry, they liked to be called 'leadership') when they say hiring 8 people in Cairo will not affect your job. Many good senior people shown the door in Ed. Services today. :( :(
Is RSA being hit just like other groups at Dell and EMC? Do you have more info - if yes, please share
