Thread regarding Manulife Financial Corp. layoffs

Mid level management is absolutely incompetent

Gulloin can't increase revenues so he's cutting expenses. Gave himself a 22% increase to 12.5 million in 2013. This is for a stock that is still down 50% from 2008. Most employees have not received inflation increases in over 6 years. It's no wonder both past (D'Allesandro) and current CEO's are being sued in a class action law suit. The internal efficiency continues to worsen due to experienced people being let go. Mid level management is absolutely incompetent and make decisions solely on a will it hurt my career mentality....doom.

Are you telling that Manulife offer a Short Term Disability for those who accept to be fired ? Is it a joke or not ? Could you explain what is this proposition from Manulife ? Thank you.

Shake up must be done. Nothing of value posted here in a while. Kind of like nothing of value be done at Manulife for a while. Checking out and moving on to more fun things - I have some paint that is drying that I am going to watch. Ciao baby!

Hi my name is Ben, Ben Dover. I am a 32 year old male looking for disaffected Manulife ex-employees who were summarily terminated from the jobs they were performing at an otherwise acceptable or better level. If you have been jilted, I am the one for you. I will Ben Dover for you like you have never been Ben Dovered before. You will no longer have to drop your drawers for the Manulife shaming anymore. I, Ben Dover, will do it, and you, instead. Please contact me if you would like to be f***ed over and feel good about it, instead of just being Manufucked. Contact me @ [email protected]

Time for listener email.

It's not my fault that I have a salary of over $200,000 a year, an obscene bonus of close to $65,000 a year, a car allowance for my 2004 Toyota Tercel, or a $40,000 spending account that I can use for anything from having my back waxed to going to a rub and tug. Gee whiz fellas, I am just trying to scrape by like everybody else you know. I am only in this job because I have been here for so long they can't afford to get rid of me. Heck, if I was running this coming I would have fired my ass years ago. What do you think I should do? I will probably just continue to drift aimlessly like most of my colleagues. No sense spilling the gravy when you are on the gravy train. Mmmmm, gravy"

I was wondering if I should buy the new iPhone 6? I am a big fan of humbleandfredradio.com. What do you think? Maybe the Manulife leaders who can't lead can help me out with this. They don't seem to be able to do much else. Listen up y'all.

At this point I haven't been fired, and I won't accept their STD (short term disability lol) idea as I know how that goes plus I have a conscience and I am not disabled, neither physically or mentally. I have refused their 'return to work now' emails since Friday. I have no lawyer (yet) but I'm doing ok on my own. Truth is, that Manulife Customer Service job was just a front for me anyway. I'm secretly an artist. Well, it's not so secret anymore. I'm also very wise. After 10 years you see a lot. Funny, Manulife recorded all my calls for the last 10 years. Kind of interesting to imagine that they do own that. I was as wise/kind as I could be in every encounter.

I find with incompetent leadership I can spend more time looking for the leaked celebrity nude photos and catching up with my friends on Facebook. What other company can accord you such privilege and pay you to do it too. I am looking forward to the chaos the Standard Life acquisition is going to create. It has bought at least another year of political maneuvering and more time to surf for celebrity nudes! Long life incompetent leadership at Manulife.
