Elite Layoffs?

We had someone let go on May 31st (the day before the spinoff of Elite from TR). Presented to the team as “performance” related. But timing is very suspect so wanted to see if any other groups were affected.

The toxicity is unmatched

I didn't realize how bad the work environment was until I was no longer in it. I didn't realize how toxic things were until I read up on the traits of a bad workplace and matched up what was happening at work with the warning traits listed. There was... —  read more 

No May layoffs

Unless something happens in the next few days, I guess the talk of a May round was not true. I don't know if I'm happy about it or disappointed. I'm currently half-scared of getting laid off but also half-hopeful that I will be cut and that I'll get... —  read more 

Looking for a new offer

The atmosphere here has become very bad. In fact, I don't think it's ever been worse. On the other hand, I'm so overwhelmed with work that I hardly have time to dedicate myself to looking for a new job as much as I would like. You?

Nobody is hiring

Am I the only one who is unable to find any good opportunities? I keep searching daily but I'm mostly coming up empty. When I do find something I like and go through the entire very lengthy process, I end up finding that their offer is ridiculously... —  read more 

Tax Support Layoffs

In the email from leadership to tax support: "Objective: Be a Future Ready Organization Key Result: Increase our footprint in our Global Centers" >We've abruptly let-go of talent, we have no specific plan, eventually everything will be offshored... —  read more 

TR Townhall

Well this townhall so far is a lot less exciting since they silenced people from feeling comfortable asking questions. leadership doesn’t want to face the hot seat.

Product Management

I felt exactly like a lot of you that are still there. The hardest part was pulling the trigger on a new path. Financially, it was 35k+ more that what I was getting at TR. I could not believe that we were soo underpaid and valued. It’s never too... —  read more 

Maybe it's too late

I really loved my job here and that's why I delayed leaving, thinking that some improvement must happen here eventually. However, for almost four years I have watched the company go a downward spiral and the expected improvement is not... —  read more 

There are enough available jobs

Don't believe the false narrative that jobs don't exist. That's just not true. Spend 5 minutes on any recruiting site and you'll see there are a LOT of people hiring right now. It took me all of 2 weeks to find a new job with better pay, benefits... —  read more

Just leave

To anyone still at TR, especially those posting to and checking this forum regularly, please update your resume and start networking. The culture is toxic, the leaders don’t value you, and there is A LOT more money and job satisfaction elsewhere. We... —  read more 

Anyone making bets on

whether AG comes back? TBH not witnessed how shes contribute other firing everyone. Also responding with a question when you ask her a valid question. I mean why are you asking me? and go find out and come back and tell me is not coaching.

Work is slow and I'm worried

The only thing more stressful than being overwhelmed is when your work becomes so slow that you literally have nothing to do. I don't want to lose my job, but I'm very worried. What do the rest of you do in a situation like this?

Accessibility training

Got an email from Charlie today saying TR values accessibility and everyone in product has to do accessibility training so we build accessibility into our products. Meanwhile, they took away our budget for accessibility fixes. Cool.

Things are Falling apart

I thought things were bad 10 years ago but its obvious things are failing miserably now. Institutional knowledge is out the door and reaking havoc on those who are left to support it. Problems range from Customer unable to access products to random... —  read more 

Lack of work

The design org work has slowed down due to lack of organization between design and product partners. Additional work we could help with is held up because other teams don’t have the time or care enough to meet to discuss details. Anyone else notice... —  read more 

Design Operations

thanks for the depressing pep talk today. your encouragement and intimidation tactics only ensure I'm making the right decision to leave. also no one cares. design tea is a time suck and operations is a pain in the a-s.

Thomson saved Reuters

You can't be all high and mighty when the truth is that Thomson saved your company. If there wasn't for us, there wouldn't have been Reuters. I thought this was common knowledge and we have moved on from it, but some posts I read here have... —  read more
