Giving promotions while doing layoffs?
I don't understand the logic behind promoting some while at the same time laying off others. Maybe they are doing that to preserve the morale of the remaining employees? I see no other reason for such a practice.
More layoffs in Jerusalem
Extent not fully known, at least a few more dozens in various lines. Seems inevitable, we all realize Synamedia is a ghost ship on steroids. Still sad to watch even from the outside. Sic transit gloria mundi, hail to the thieves...
So SG is down?
ServiceGuard is shutting down. Will those who worked in SG related groups remain? We are toldd we will have decisions in a few days.
For those not keeping up with the issue date of payslips. There's no bonus payment in the April pay. Having been strung along by the disingenuous cretin for over 6 months now, there's really no choice but to start legal action against the company... — read more
April Fool's Day
In line with our SynaLIES cycle, any changes to salary will be effective 1st January 2023 and bonus amount if applicable will be paid in November payroll.
What on earth are they doing ?
Morale is rock bottom, departments are still being axed and people are leaving, taking huge amounts of knowledge with them. We will struggle to support existing customers now and things will only get worse over time. They are literally letting the... — read more

TG is a coward (Everguard vent)
Just in case anyone didn't notice it, TG and Nick said Everguard was being further restructured. What they mean by that is Everguard is being shutdown. Only a skeleton team for maintenance will be left to support our 1 actual customer. If you are... — read more
No bonus paid?

Synamedia to close head office
In order to further demotivate employees the “leadership” team at synamedia has decided to close the head office.
Nepotism is alive and well at Synamedia. The lay-offs would certainly make sense based on the financial situation of the company even though heartlessly carried out prior to Christmas by a company that allegedly supports diversity, inclusion but... — read more
It is a deliberate policy folks
I simply cannot believe what is going on here - the bonus debacle, the pay freeze, the silly stupidity of the senior managers and YET they are still in their positions. In any normal company the CEO would have resigned after teling everyone that... — read more
A round of applause is due to our CEO...
Following the latest round of redundancies and the suspension of our bonus, I think the CEO needs to be congratulated for successfully demotivating the entire workforce and destroying any prospect of us becoming more efficient. At the Christmas party... — read more
What’s keeping you here?
Question for the unfortunate survivors - what’s keeping you here? Is it the chance of massive rewards when the exit from Permira comes good? Maybe you feel like you’re at the cutting edge if something great? Maybe you love the fact that you can keep... — read more
Question about severance pay
Now that I read some of your terrible experiences on this forum, I'm happy that I didn't accept the offer here at the time. If I may ask, what kind of package did the affected employees receive?
How many are cut so far?
I am under constant stress thinking whether there will be more.
Case study company
Basically, I don't care about this company anymore, I'm looking for a way to exit, but when I look back I can't even explain to myself how this place, which used to be really great, has become almost a case study on how to destroy a successful... — read more
Communication plays a vital role in layoffs
I am very disappointed with how the cuts were communicated here. If the leadership does not care enough to treat the employees who are affected with respect and compassion, then they should care how badly communicated layoffs affect the morale of... — read more
Pay rises to be put on hold indefinately
It's not only the bonus that has been frozen!
Just doing enough to stay out of trouble. . .
I no longer believe that giving your best can save your job. Actually, does anyone believe that hard work is still valued here?
Be not passive!
If you are interested in taking a leading role in your situation, rather than a passive one - then get to work on your CV, confide in someone trustworthy, apply for jobs, evaluate your potential, and take charge of your situation.
Be grateful, not spiteful.
There are tremendous lessons to learn now. Don't pass up this opportunity to learn, observe, analyze, be creative, and even vibrant. It's up to you, not 'them', to determine your own unique response to this. Best wishes!
Everyone is talking about cuts and morale is very low. Certainly no one should feel safe but rather prepare to hear the bad news, but who do you think will be the main target?
Quite nervous about going into work now
It looks like it can only get worse here. What should we expect by the end of this year?
I don't remember a worse atmosphere
The atmosphere is very bad and the uncertainty is huge. Has it ever been as tense as it is now? I haven't been here long enough to know. If you already haven't, I think everyone should start looking for new opportunities. My advice is don't... — read more
Is this the big one?
It’s starting tomorrow. Good luck everyone.
What do you dislike the most in this company?
I can no longer think of anything that I do not dislike here. It's definitely time for me to leave.
