Thread regarding Thomson Reuters layoffs

February 20: Reuters News reporting that TR may have a new CEO soon

I suppose we will see what kind of shakeup this creates. JS was already sending out early morning emails saying that nothing has been decided (also reported in the article).

Congratulations Steve! Do the exact opposite of what Jim did and you will do fine!

Not even remotely qualified for the position of Thomson Reuters CEO which makes him the perfect candidate.

The old saying, "The more things change, the more they stay the same" springs to mind here!

For those of you who think this is an improvement, I’d focus on the incomer’s resume. Where did he come from? MCKINSEY! Know your enemy! Guess who engineered our “transformation” where we laid off hundreds of employees? McKinsey! McKinsey is driving the ship and now finally is installing its own alumni into TR’s TOP role. What a coup! It’s breathtaking. Side note: Good thing McKinsey flattened the company by creating all those new roles at the top.

Good for Jim, got another round of global sales conferences in and heading off into the sunset. He has done well for himself at TR, coming up through the ranks, although highly unqualified in his ability to attract top talent or turn around under performing segments, he was a good guy who worked hard with positive intent. If this is all true and JS is heading to greener pastures, I wish him the best of luck. The new CEO will come in, take a look around at the leaders and get severe anxiety. He or she will take a look at things without those rose colored glasses on and make some dramatic changes to leadership and put people in positions where they can actually make a difference, Number one goal is for this new leader to turn around morale and that should start when they begin holding the current leaders accountable for the decisions they made over the past 2 or so years, especially in the Tax Professionals segment.

I realized, reading the "nothing to see here" email this morning, that I assume everything he signs his name to is a lie. Kind of sad really.
