Thread regarding Refinitiv layoffs

Q4 2019 Refinitiv Layoffs

Sounds like Q4 2019 is going to be another bloodbath.

So starting a separate thread for the latest wave of Q4 2019 layoff notices to avoid posts getting buried in other posts. And reposting some notices from @11jP4X34 as well.


Over 400 in Gdynia gone so far since beginning of this year :(

Lipper in Gdynia was hit. At least dozen of people.

Just found out that an entire Development Team for one of those Eikon apps got laid off. (3XSQ office)

Denver IT completely shut down.

Chicago most developers are let go.

Eagan-based Technology (~175 folks) is being shut down by Q3 2020. Sounds like most end dates were not until at least Dec. 31, 2019. Some folks have been offered relocation, which sounds like St. Louis being the main transfer spot.

Some EIkon support out of 3XSQ given a Dec. 31 end date.

Things happening here in Switzerland today.
Office close in Zug and resulting layoffs.
This was always delicate when TRGR split and Refinitiv didn’t need a tax base in Switzerland aka Asset managers on assignments.

What a long Trail we have come down.

Being Sold to the London Stock Exchange or Hong Kong Exchange is like making the Highway Department answerable to the Drivers License Registration Department. They are not coordinated to be a sales and service organization. Quasi Government at best. Hope big David gets the artwork and fast car of his dreams.

@5hlg

The rollout started on September 30. Search for the announcement on Connectiv (new Sharepoint site) by the company's Chief Information Security Officer in the "Using Office 365" section.

@4xoc

The external storage device policy is company-wide and applies to everyone, unless you request a waiver for valid business reasons. The policy forces external storage devices to be read-only, so clearly they care less about your PC getting infected by a virus and more about customer data leakage.

Is blocking of external drives on your laptop a tell tell sign that one is in the list?

Refinitiv is going to become more and more toxic. The takeover of LSEG will put even more jobs at risk. Get out while you can I would say! But hey let’s celebrate their birthday with little cakes and corny pledges!

@11lyU62q-1lsk if DC, DW, EmDi and the rest of the gang still have their jobs, the wrong people have been laid off.

There are rumors spreading that wrong people from Technology got fired and entire action will be reverted...

Could that possibly be true?

Just laid off. Along with 5 other development and QA teams in NYC, probably about 40-50 people total. Being moved to Beijing and Russia. A few key people kept on to train their successors, sure they'll be laid off next year once the dirty work is done.

And yet, the same people in charge, the ones who seriously expect us to pledge to the company, will keep their jobs. Leadership in action.

From Unite union in the UK:

"Yesterday (Wednesday 2 October) union and employee representatives were notified of proposed job reductions for the UK. Similar to the exercise that impacted Customer Operations during Q2 of this year, this latest exercise is limited in scope and scale with an overall proposed reduction of 46 UK based roles. The vast majority are in Customer Operations or Technology with both London and Exeter impacted. About half of the proposals concern uniquely identified roles, but for the remaining roles pool based selections will be carried out to determine which employees will be placed at risk. Therefore the total number of employees initially notified will exceed 46.
Where possible impacted individuals will be notified this week."

I heard the majority of the impacts were announced/communicated to people on Wednesday (Oct 2). Are additional impacts occurring today (Thursday Oct 3) as well?
