So they told us in June that they didn't think there wouldnt be anymore layoffs for the rest of the year but now they're saying there will probably be some more. GTI s---s and their head is so far up their own asses that they don't care. The upper management just want their bonus and screw the customer. This support model s---s.

at JP The first step from the engineering org's standpoint is that all of the directors will get a request from HR and their bosses to force rank their employees, of course they would rate everyone but themselves, and that is how the GTI Engineers are now gone, the ones that actually worked, while the fat cats secure a new initiative and forget the old ones with out accomplishments, sound familiar?

The wave of automation has barely begun to wash over the our banking world, but it is inexorably coming. This will begin with the automation of the more data driven positions (think markets and trading) and will quickly spread into those more specialized areas (corporate finance) that require more specific knowledge, Players are going to save lots money on personnel,for their own benefit.
As a professional in the AI field, I have to say that most professions that rely on applying specialized knowledge in dynamic arenas are vulnerable to AI threats. While it is true that many of the AIs cannot match top level human performance yet. It becomes a cost/benefit decision, something JP knows very well how to do, getting rid of old workers to hire more useless management .
