My morale is zero. There are a lot of rumors circulating about layoffs and I am getting more and more anxious, and as a result, less and less productive. I would like to keep my job here at least until I find a better one but I am especially demotivated by those who claim that no one should feel safe, not even those who work very hard.

And and and… the train just fell off the cliff.
Any and all duplicated positions will be eliminated After all, this is what companies do in a merger. When you can't grow organically, you buy another company, eliminate positions and increase revenue without additional cost of labor.
Are all MUFG Union Bank employees who were mapped to US Bank before the acquisition of MUFG going to be let go? Especially the MUFG employees who work for Risk in New York and New Jersey?
When you work for a company with a constant threat of RIF, just as many employees waiting on the meeting with HR and getting a package. Just as many want to be let go as are worried about being let go. They never seem to ask for volunteers but if they did, mad dash would happen to HR.
Sense you know the decision then let us know what is the decision
Sorry folks, but the decisions have already been made about who to keep and who to let go. The moose out front should’ve told you. There is nothing that you can currently do to secure been kept. It’s just a waiting game, or move on.
If you have H1b or OPT visa, you are generally safer.
News usually puts it frontpage when H1b workers laid off, but laid off American is usually expected.
From the wording in your post and most likely many other posts in this board, you're not happy. Move on! Life gets you lemons, suck on it! Or go find something that tastes better.
Why would you want to be safe ? Get a severance and never look back. This train is going off a cliff.
The last couple of postings sound like someone trying to keep "engagement" on the board with cookie-cutter postings - this post has zero relevance to what's going on at US Bank. Notice no commentary on the new management style and internal reorgs.
Basically volunteer to take on a lot more work without a pay increase and kiss 😚 a lot of behind.. Marvelous strategy.⬇️
Not sure what business line you are in, but if you are truly interested in staying with the bank you need to remain relevant. Don't be complacent thinking you don't need to change or adapt with the times. Listen to what levels of management above you are saying in all hand's meetings. Pay attention to your department priorities and think about how you can play a role. Volunteer to work on items that get your name out there and give you more widespread visibility. Don't be afraid to talk to your manager's manager and build that relationship. That's more important than anything IMO.
Get your resume and look for jobs now. Especially if your manager isn't looking out for you.
