For those who were Rif’d in the past how long did it take you to find other employment? Were you able to remain within the industry or did you need to step outside to be gainfully employed? More importantly, did you find a position where you were... — read more
A customer even posted here complaining about the products sucking. You should all realize, collectively, that you did a poor job. Unfortunately many kiss a-s managers and directors got to keep their cushy jobs. And this is not to say that... — read more
That and these courses which I will never use is a huge waste of time and stressful. Honestly I am hoping I am in the next round of layoffs. I feel like I am back in school again with homework and project deadlines. The fork is stuck in me _ _ _ .. — read more
Coming out tomorrow - so expect more attrition in the US with no backfills. Required vax by late November/efficacy December - per Federal policy. Maybe that will alleviate some of the layoffs coming soon.
Why does the company have to torment us with these constant check-in’s with managers, self evaluations, password changes, required seminars to take (most of which does not apply to to the vast amount of TR employees anyway ) and virtual town halls? ... — read more
Is there any hope that this October will pass without layoffs? I am very worried because this would be the worst possible time for me personally to get laid off, and it frustrates me that I am powerless to do anything and not become the layoff... — read more
Those who don’t expect it and try to keep the job seem to be laid off. On the other hand, I wish to be on the layoff list - and I am not. Though reluctantly, it looks like I’ll have to leave without severance pay even though I’ve been squeezed here... — read more
Be advised. Update your resume and start putting out feelers. More financial goals are needing to be met to solidify selloffs.
Am I the only one who thought that BP should have put on a coat and tie for a Customer Town Hall? If we have an attorney in a coat and tie giving us "feedback," shouldn't one of our top executives try to not look so sloppy?
This post is for TR management. It is meant as genuine feedback and is not a wind up or a joke. I’ve been a regular user of TR products for many years. Over the last three or so I’ve noticed a decline in quality/standards in many of the products I... — read more
I didn't think they would replace a colleague who left very quickly, but I didn't think it would last very long either. After three months, I thought he would never be replaced. Well in the end it was replaced but only after almost five... — read more
If you are still left at TR, it means that you will do what you have to do to stay, but that by no means say that you are valued. As I look around at who is left, its typically the meek ones, ones that go with the flow, no dissenting opinions, happy... — read more
Golf buddies will do anything for each other
This model cant keep going on the way it is. Heard any rumors?
A former coworker who was laid off months ago is still looking for work. He did have a few good possibilities but it never went through the whole way. This has me worried. I wasn't too worried about being laid off because I thought finding a new job... — read more
Well I kept hearing that there was no issue with employees attrition. However it certainly appears that is not the case. Multiple emails begging for help and offering money. Why did people leave in the first place. Was a good chunk of them because... — read more
What will be the most common words or phrases tomorrow at the SH Town Hall? Not selling TAP Efficiency Very excited Please share others for fun in this dismal time.
Being told you're valued and then being replaced by overseas hires you're forced to retrain and welcome with smiling faces! Nothing productive here, just toxic realism.
Yesterday was probably my hardest day at work after more than five years here. Once again I wondered "what am I even doing here?" I'm bored. I feel terribly bored at work the last few weeks. For a long time I was dissatisfied with the... — read more
Anyone know when the next round of layoffs is happening? The rumor was that Eagan would have 3 rounds of layoffs this year. We've already had one... which means two more before the end of the year?
It would be great if someone could explain to our management that we do not live to work, but that almost all of us work just for the sake of surviving in this society. Will that ever become clear to them??? They act as if everyone should be happy... — read more
Absolutely no support from my boss and my boss has no idea what I do. Management's mess is put on the backs of employees. Management will scream to clean up their mess. The organization does not "think" about the strategy. My previous jobs I had... — read more
I’m not at all happy here, but it’s hard for me to decide to leave because I didn’t get an offer that I could say is much better. A friend who works in one of the competing companies is also not very happy - I mean, it is clear to me that the grass... — read more
How come nobody cares enough to do something about it?
How satisfied are you with the growth of your career here? Unfortunately, I only now realize that I have wasted my time here.
Do you also think that the bigger problem here than layoffs is that totally wrong people are being laid off? Those who are the best employees, who are the most talented and have the most knowledge, or simply those who should be kept here at all... — read more
There isn't anyone left who knows how things work there. If you are still there, get out if you have the chance. TR will not own that AA building within 2 years. BP achieved his goal of ki----g TAP in AA.
Everyone is tired of working in this uncertainty. My colleagues who have left these days and those who have prioritized looking for a new job, think that there will be layoffs soon. However, given how many people are leaving, I wonder if there will... — read more
I happened to see that a certain former CTO at TR, SB, is now Vice Chairman and President of something called the Enterprise Centre at TR. What is the "Enterprise Centre" and what does it do?
Curious that they are striving to be "open and honest" at this point. Wonder how they expect anyone to believe anything they say when there's literally an article from earlier this year implying there would be no coming layoffs:... — read more
What is KR plan? what did she do at HSBC? Massive layoffs and sell offs of TR properties (including Eagan) in the works?... — read more
With the significant increase in COVID cases and new surge in the US, there can be NO reasonable explanation to require staff to report to TR offices until the case count reduces in a significant and sustained manner.
There has been quite a bit of discussion here about TR's moves to using more outsourcing. However, little has been said about whether TR has been engaging former RIF'd employees as contractors. Has this been happening? Thoughts?
Comment below reposted from comments on another post. Spot on The single operating company jargon is all FUD. It's just a smoke screen for additional cost-cutting / outsourcing. TR was already a single operating company and the work to integrate... — read more
We’ve all heard it on nearly every townhall. My question to you all is how many jobs are going to get axed as they consolidate. We’ve seen it with marketing. But even more can be done. It seems to be happening to sales. Curious what everyone’s... — read more
Will TR require a mandate and if you don't get one you're fired? Maybe laid off? Could this be an easy way to let people go without paying severance?
I was planning to retire at 54 and everything was planned. Last steps were to give notice to TR and leave. Then I figured these folks can’t go 12 months without making people redundant , so I will hang on another 12 months and see what happens. Then... — read more
What is going on in the Toronto office: mid-year performance check-ins. Managers are looking extra hard for reasons to downgrade staff in mid-year reviews. They pile on too much work and then they watch close for you to miss something so they can... — read more
Can cheap labor fix the problems that are accumulating in this company? I'm not sure it can. Even if it works for a while, I don't know what the results of such a strategy will be in the long run. Luckily this is my last week here and I won’t be at... — read more
