Thread regarding Thomson Reuters layoffs

Leadership doesn't even care about customers

They care only about making the most money by outsourcing and laying people off. If they truly cared about customers, they would recognize that institutional knowledge is what the original company was built on and is what retains customers. The whole premise of the Westlaw brand, for instance, is that it's products are worked on by people who are attorneys and legal professionals who are themselves knowledgeable. Eliminating layers and simplifying the business is just coded rhetoric for reducing labor costs and increasing profits. If those in charge would just own up to this and admit they only care about money irrespective of how they get it, I might retain a modicum of respect for them. But they won't, so I don't.

Those TR trinkets might be worth some money in 50 years when the company is no more.

I notice that those who accepted the “voluntary severance” package are divesting themselves of all TR items such as mugs, T-Shirts, pens, water bottles, etc. I can’t say I blame them.

@ZarBaLT: I bet you have more transferable skills than you realize. I know there are many specialized jobs at TR, but you'll need to boil down your current job role into something more generic. For example, if you are an e-publishing specialist, what are some of your job roles? Maybe some project management skills, resource management? That sort of thing. Not sure of your location, but you can also work with a headhunter who might be willing to help provide suggestions.

oh believe me I've been trying to leave for a year. I've been actively interviewing at tons of jobs. But here's a news flash. There is no transferable skills in this job. Basically you do it for Thomson Reuters and that's it. And this place is so toxic that nobody wants to hire you. It is well known in the employment Market that the company is a sinking ship so people assume that you are leaving because you're miserable. And they're right. Who wants to hire someone who's miserable?
