Anyone bothering to complete survey

Is anyone bothering to complete the organizational health survey, and if so, what are the chances that it's safe to be honest? Why does the company even pretend to care at this point? It is obvious they consider everyone expendable.

Is anyone else nervous about the annual layoff time? It seems like the messages from upper management continue to be "rah rah we're so great...empowered and customer focused." They're clueless about how bad morale is so I wouldn't be surprised if... —  read more

More layoffs at Kennedy (Carswell)

Another team gone, at least a half dozen people. Soon both the 11th and 8th floors will be mostly empty. They're going to shrink this office until we fit in a shoebox.

A new "Chief Marketing Officer"

So much for flattening the organization and providing opportunities to those who remain. Apparently, no one on staff is "sophisticated" enough to "accelerate our efforts." We had to hire someone from Equifax.

New job after 60 is possible

I was laid off at the end of 2018 after 12 years at TR--and at 61 years old, I thought I'd never find another job. Well, it took five months, but I have a new job, so it IS possible. Yes, I did have to compromise on pay (I'm only making a little more... —  read more
