Thread regarding Manulife Financial Corp. layoffs

Layoff would be a blessing for me at this point

Most days it feels like being let go is a better option than staying at Manulife. Seems like a sinking ship!

I can agree with this 100%. It's obvious that there's no future at Manulife and I'd rather be gone before the company hits rock bottom than stay on until the bitter end. Being let go with severance is my dream right now. I can't believe that just a few years ago I thought I'd retire here. Things have changed so much in such a short time.

Agree with everything said, but think carefully about staying just for the package. I wish I had left a long time ago, and not let the dangling of a package have me stay too long. Start looking, get your skills up to date if needed, and start networking now that you are considering new opportunities.

Manulife won't sink. What will happen, is the jobs in Canada and the US will continue to be outsourced overseas, until only essential staff is left here. This is why we see so many high profile executives and HR people leaving for better opportunities.

Do yourself a favor; Update your resume and qualifications as much as you can, so you're ready when you get your notice, or if a more lucrative job comes along at another firm. If you're close to retirement, put in your time until you get your severance package.

Do not sign off on your termination until you see a lawyer first. Being let go, was an absolute blessing for me. Manulife was a very toxic work environment.
