It's easier to find a person NOT looking to leave than those who are planning their exit.

I am exceeds expectations for almost two decades straight. My manager and my manager's manager said that this year there would be "recalibrations" for those working hard, I was told there will also be bonuses, recalibrating raises ect. This was when I made movement to exit the firm due to working conditions and pay. My review was perfect, they gave no bonus, not even a dollar and the raise received was as if you would expect if working at wendy's it wasn't even enough to purchase a new couch to cry on, since my current one is depreciated from moe5. I lead many and I met all goals for the year and was perfect review. They said that the bank is struggling with turnover related costs, network costs with stuff going down ect. I said so you are telling me you can not afford to pay your workers a fair wage and reward their work in a manner commensurate to performance, I said how do you plan on retaining talent? I ask a meeting with everyone above, they told me that my hope should be getting more money when everyone quits from these poor raises and I should then go for a higher paying job when all of the shafted people leave. I can't believe this mess, I have to console crying workers daily and broken systems and out of this world sales goals, pressures ect. They want me to find happiness in someone else's misery because they do not know how to manage properly. I told them that these goals are no longer my goals, they are their goals. If I work hard to meet them and you do not take care of me, do not expect them to be met because there is no incentive to do so. They suggested doing it great one more time and they will get me next time. It is so unfair it is ridiculous, like I will trust that statement after they swindle me on this one. I basically made them look good for a year and they fooled me and then expect me to keep happy. Nope, won't be doing anything but occupying my chair. Nothing will get done, my team will be slow because they got shafted as well and I will not be influencing them to perform at all. Only way something will get sold is if clients beg for the products. They think leading by fear, intimidation and coercion and deceit will work, in the end they will all look like fools when we don't perform collectively due to the conditions. I have over 1mm in my mma, I do not need their money, it is principal that employees and leadership should be taken care of appropriately. They need to take care of their people appropriately. The executive tried to give me the run around and say recalibration could have meant backwards and laughed, like this is funny. Said maybe it was a miscommunication on what recalibration meant and bonus. Meanwhile people they are close with who performed less than me received a higher raise and an actual bonus amount because I know the people from outside of work that they hooked up. Then they did the run around to show the compensation overall like ss payout ect, I said I have managed here for years I know this tactic, you are legally required to pay that, and all of this pie is basic with any job haha I was trained to have those conversations myself, do not try to play me because you can not afford to retain talent. Thankfully when they went to show that page, there was a merger related issue and it was down, they looked frustrated. I can't wait to see what they do when I have to take a 2 week medical leave because I feel acute inflammation in my bowel system due to the disgusting treatment.
I left Nov 1 and cant be happier!
FOR THOSE LET GO, DISMISSED, etc.....
it is FREEDOM FINALLY !!!!!!!!!!
and much before the exodus on Feb and June which would be a horrible time.
This OP's sentence is backwards. Doesn't make sense:
"Everybody is leaving - It's easier to find a person NOT looking to leave than those who are planning their exit."
Shouldn't it be:
"Everybody is leaving - It's easier to find a person planning their exit than those who are NOT looking to leave."
What is fascinating to me is the breakdown between who is leaving and who is staying. Those staying are by and large not particularly effective at their job (or integral for bank profitability). They are those that are effective at playing the game of simply giving the “appearance” of being important. You do have to wonder who will actually be doing the work in the coming years…
isn't that the truth!
I don't know anyone who is truly happy with all the changes that have been made. I think most people prefer things the way they were.
I never thought those laid off would be the lucky ones, but that's how it turned out.
