Thread regarding Unum Group layoffs

2019 layoffs

Been at Unum almost 20 years, and learned 5/10/19 my job is being eliminated and my duties absorbed by others in the department. This was the first time in my history here that I did not receive an annual raise; the company claims they are moving away from annual increases for most employees and compensating more through the Incentive Program. I know now that they just wanted to save as much money as possible by not having this years increase to base the severance packages on. This really s---s, I have never been fired before and can't imagine working anywhere else...been almost 20 years since I have had a job interview and am terrified to start over at my age. I stand by the company and love working here, it's been my dream job forever and I don't know what I am going to do if I can't find an internal posting...pray for me...

Go somewhere else and don't look back. There are other jobs at better places. Happened to me and in at a better place now. Praying for you. Wish I had left there years ago. To much stress always afraid of layoffs.

I am so sorry, that totally s---s. I heard a large number of people were let go on Friday. I am praying for you; all will be okay. :)
