Thread regarding U.S. Bank layoffs

Struggling

Is anyone else who works here utterly disgusted with how this company operates? My manager is incompetent and rude. My team is in disconnected chaos. I can barely get any work done because of the layers of bureaucracy. I am totally demotivated to apply my skills here. SOS to senior leaders…your employees are struggling.

I was told at the beginning of the year (and throughout my years here) that I’m a top performer. After having the rug pulled out from me one too many times, I’m doing the bare minimum from now on. The only reward I ever got for being a “top performer” was more and more work for fewer and fewer benefits.

I've never struggled with mental health more than I have in my short time here. Poorly implemented working methodologies, executive leadership who don't care about what goes on in their org unless it impacts an audit number, and management that is ineffective in providing direction or making decisioning.

Yes. Completely dysfunctional bank. Dreading every day of working here...should never have gotten su-kered into coming here.

Did you jump in my brain and dump my thoughts in this post? Analysis paralysis, team politics and lazy management is the name of the game in my role and it is absolutely paralyzing. Talk about disempowering and bumming out your employees. Terrible.

Yeah, I feel hopeless at this point about it getting better. It seems like every few months something happens that makes it worse and worse and worse. I used to feel bad that I’m not as productive here as I know I can be in a better work environment, but I’m as productive as I can be with all the barriers put in my way before I can even hope to do the work I was theoretically hired to do. My manager keeps talking about how we need to do more with less, but I can’t do any more.

Looks like Denver Broncos are moving their banking relationship from U. S. Bank to ENT Credit Union!

Management is content to run the company into the ground. To modernize and streamline the way work is done requires support form the top of the house. We don't have that with these leaders.

After 3O plus years I am feeling absolutely defeated! I don’t want my career to end this way but I don’t think I can take much more of USB’s dis-organization and making changes that do not make any sense.

To me, the morale ki-ler is that they are clearly communicating through their actions that they want us to quit. They want it so bad, it's depressing. It feels like I am getting even with then every day I do log on

My manager is great but even in the high role he has his hands tied because NcKinsey runs this place to the ground. Sad to see but I’m pretty sure we will witness doors shut in this institution soon the way the ship is sinking. Poor decision making and awful cold consultant strategy going wrong.

The senior leaders are struggling just as much. The amount of movement and changes that are being done behind the scenes leaves everyone in fear that they are going to be eliminated. We have seen individuals with impeccable talents and performance be let go for what seems like useless reorganizational efforts. If the bank has been struggling this bad, then they should listen to their front line employees but no, send in a consulting firm to do your dirty work and blame it on them. USB has shifted their culture. Employees are no longer of value, even though “Putting People First” is one of their main Core Values.

The executive leadership is where the problem lies. They are not upfront with why things are done. The leaders they have brought in over the last 12 months seem to have zero knowledge or experience in the related fields they are leading.

It’s a travesty to see so many talented people discouraged by a company once so loved. The time to right the ship is now. But all we see are bandages over gaping holes.

My manager is great, my managers manager is great. But, it's the execs that as always can't make a decision, or make poor ones and that is messing with us in both mind and productivity.

Yes it is extremely hard to get anything done during this current time of change and turmoil. Mix messaging that all ends with open ended questions about return to office. It is really frustrating and I am definitely starting to get quite depressed.
