Topics regarding layoffs at USAA


If anything is going to finally get me to quit and leave this wretched place it will be RTO. There is no need for it. None. Our productivity is just as good if not better currently. I can't understand why they would want to mess with that. I have no... —  read more 

2023 "Merit" Increases

I've been made aware that I will receive a 6.5% raise for 2023. While that may sound decent on the surface, I need to factor in the inflation rate/cost of living increase is also about 6.5%!! Therefore, this doesn't seem to be reflective of my... —  read more 

Management is the issue

What is wrong with these managers? All the bs comes down to the bottom line employees when it’s the manager not doing their jobs. Idk what to do with mine he made it clear from jump he don’t want his boss bothered so going to his boss is out the... —  read more 


The ECIO line of business plans to do a ~10% reduction in capital expenses, ~18% reduction in operational expenses. This WILL translate to a layoff of IT employees. Your projects will be cut to bare bones. P&C will also have to reduce expenses and... —  read more

ECIO and a few other areas in the company are going through additional budget trimming exercises now. They're digging hard to cut more expenses. The previous expense cut a few months ago which eliminated contractors was not enough. In many areas... —  read more 


I think how our IT leader has stated that cost cutting will happen so probably jobs will be cut. If someone does loose their job, does anyone know what’s the Severn we package like for someone with 3 to 5 years experience.

Wells Fargo to USAA

So disappointing that many of the leaders that flopped at Wells Fargo are now moving into USAA pushing the same agenda. Burn and churn sad to say that’s their plan and have a lot of money thrown at them


I think that unnecessary bureaucracy does enormous damage to the company. Honestly, have you ever worked in a company that has a bigger problem with unnecessary bureaucracy than is the case here?

Unmanageable Workload

Worked 16 hours today and normal is 12. Most checked out at 1pm for early release. Could work 24/7 and still not be done or be thoughtful in my work. Manager does nothing but piles on more deliverables. Lack of accountability is astounding. Rework... —  read more 

I hate it here

It's not that I simply dislike working at USAA or that I'm burned out, I'm actively hating it. I'm sick and tired of the stress that comes with working here. I'm sick of the politics and sick of having to clean up messes made by my manager who got... —  read more
