Thread regarding Nationwide (Insurance and Financial Services) layoffs

Laid off on a video conference.

Nationwide had me drive to a remote location so my manager could pop up on a tv screen to tell me I was laid off.

Nationwide wasn't on my side after 12+ years.

Shabby treatment without a doubt! S---s that you were treated that way after 12+ years with the company.

1500+ employees who were with Oracle can feel your pain. On 9/1/17, those people were told to dial in to a voice only conference call. When they did that, they heard the recorded voice of the company's Chief Corporate Architect, who told them the latest computer chip about to be released was a great effort in their parts...and oh, by the way, today would be your last day at Oracle. The recorded call was approximately 3 minutes long, and then they were told to hang around the office and wait for an email that would tell them where to dump their badges and company laptops. Many of the people laid off in that 9/1 round had been with the company 15+ years.

The icing on the sh-- cake? The recorded conference call was delivered on the Friday before Labor Day!

Oh wow. That's so shady and unprofessional. And after 12 years employment? Welcome to the new landscape of Corporate America in general.

Nationwide is a great company to work at.

They layoff every 5 years and attrition helps.

They give you options to apply elsewhere in the company and a choice to move if needed.

I enjoyed my 18 years there and chose to retire before layoff.
