Thread regarding Thomson Reuters layoffs

D-Day

Anybody else here at the crack of dawn, too nervous about today to sleep?

I'm not sure what exactly will happen today, but there has been enough talk and indicators to be nearly certain that today will be significant for most of us - and most likely not in a good way.

So good luck all. I hope you are at least going to be more rested than I am for whatever is to come.

What about US sales managers? They getting Heaved in favor of centralized cost and management ideas? Like sales managers in places like St. Louis or NJ managing people in NYC and Boston? Never made much sense.

@1mvi, you can quote something by adding greather-than symbol ( > ) at the beginning of a line you wanna quote.

You can reference to someone’s post by adding @ before Post ID, like previous poster and I did (first few characters represent the thread ID, last three are for the post within a thread, so @1mvi works within this thread only, and @Vq4qioA-1mvi works here and on other threads as well).

You can also do some other formatting - bold, italic, bullets and numbering also work.

Can check how by visiting posts in these hashtags #formatting #text #markdown

Better to learn it now so you’re prepared down the line. It’s a good lesson and a reminder there’s no loyalty. You’re viewed as an expense moreso than an asset

Americans are usually the worst off in layoffs but at least the job market is pretty strong right now and I do have interviews lined up.

Also how do you embed that image comment?? I think it’s good to provide context when responding

Very true, very...

US-based workers there's virtually no safety net...

We have seen people being walked off after working for a company for 10, 15 even 20 years it's altering the way one approach work at any company... When someone sees such a thing at the beginning of their career, it is difficult for us to trust companies and not look out for ourselves...

I'm sorry but some of the comments must be coming from Europe or elsewhere, ie, not the US. The fact is, in the US only 10% of the people cut will be fortunate enough to get a package. And the vast majority of those will be for 6 months or less. And even if you get this severance package, you'll only have health insurance at a reasonable rate (still not "inexpensive") during this period, whether it's 1-3 months or 6 months. After that point it will be ~$1,200 - $1,500 per month, which, when you're not employed, a painful amount of money.

So yeah, it's good to get off a sinking ship, but for US-based workers there's virtually no safety net. Hopefully everyone has done a good job saving money. Best of luck!

As was mentioned, you are lucky to get paid to leave the titanic. If you grt cut, good.

Better now than later. What is any good about a sinking ship?

The main thing is to stay positive and believe you will be better off.

I also find it helpful to think you are in this position for a reason (a good reason) as in Its part of God’s plan, which often includes trials, but is meant to be, for your, or his, benefit.

Please keep us posted

You sound very stressed, but it’s only a job. There are plenty more around.

Don’t Panic.
