Thread regarding Ricoh layoffs

Ricoh or Xerox? Who is winning (won?) the Race to the Bottom in Print?

ricoh telling investors (spun message to dealers) they are getting out of print... and into "Digital Services" … brilliantly vague enough to mean just about anything. Like xerox they're also relabeling the same 3rd party engine and intent on pushing base to dealers.
If getting out of print is the end goal and onto more revenue relevant things, xerox is closer to the finish line of no longer burdened with manufacturing. A lot more employee pain from the xerox side but then historically bigger and more opportunity to shed costs...
Have "lay offs" ended? Is there a clear winner in the race to the print bottom or still too early to tell?

Culture of fear. Exactly! How many times did we receive paperwork and down at the bottom we were reminded that we could be fired at any time, for any reason.

Never ceases to surprise there are still “dedicated” people still working here given the loyalty is never fairly reciprocated. The dedicated just get more work for same pay. A lot of great people that put up with it out of fear they’ll lose their jobs and believe they’re too old to get a job elsewhere- culture of fear... great way to build a horrible company.

I am a very dedicated Ricoh employee. It is too early to tell yet too quite to feel safe. No communication and the uncertainty is ki----g the employees moral.
