Thread regarding Synamedia layoffs

UK layoffs next

Chandlers Ford to close. Move to Staines or take redundancy.

A lucky few got a token bonus - was it you? if not then you're probably on the list.

LWR have had their LR, so it's the UK next. Wonder if it's going to be soon enough for the Cisco layoff terms to apply. Otherwise you'll get statch minimum. Happy days.

Some people get bonuses, but everyone gets told "none are happening?" Bravo, Synamedia. Bravo.

UK layoffs in October. Don't expect the Cisco layoff terms to set any precedent.
Keep checking the meeting room bookings.
And it's going to be like this every year.
We havin fun yet?
Did you get a bonus? if not then you should probably be worried. Ask your manager directly - am I on the list? and watch them squirm.

It’s not going to be a lot surely. If they only did 13 in LWR, which is the c-appiest most expensive office ever in the world, then surely the U.K. will be barely touched.
That’s assuming that the forced retirements in LWR were actually the state of the global programme - does anyone know if this is right?

There are a lot of redundancies coming across the group, you're niave to think CF isn't going to be impacted

Again, there is nothing true about this. CF is safe.

Widespread and significant reductions in staff numbers are coming across the group.

What does “the CF” mean?
“The Chandlers Ford”?
Literally no one ever says that until you said it.

So with all due respect; your bull5hit is bull5hit.

But seriously why does anyone stay in the UK? The pay is 5hit compared to normal companies and getting worse. The management are generally weak. Me, I’m serving my time and don’t need another job but what are the youngsters still doing here?

This is absolute bull$h!t. The CF isn’t closing. Lawrenceville might close soon, but they’re just moving to a smaller office in Atlanta.

Stupid. Why would you do that? Uk isn’t expensive (compared to Lawrenceville, GA).

Israel produces half baked nonsense but has a direct line to Abe so can’t be criticised. LWR is full of expensive duds and has no fans left following the SVP retirement. India is junior.

CTO is an embarrassment.

UK is the only one finishing things off and making money.

Seems unlikely given that they've recently taken on quite a few admin and BTG type people at CF.

does TUPE preserve previous secret (NDAd) redundancy terms?
but if you're relying on contract to stop a cr4ppy employer from screwing you - do you REALLY want to be there?

Really? TUPE and contract mean anything to you?
