Topics regarding layoffs at Manulife Financial Corp.
Better sharpen up those resumes all you sad sacks. We are cutting to the bone so all you fatties have to go. All for the customers delight!
Rumors are starting to fly that there may be an email that goes out today announcing layoffs ahead of the Town Hall meeting tomorrow. Sincere Bain has been crawling around the offices since the 1st of the year you know they are coming.
Hearing rumours that they are at it again. 150 people affected in Kitchener Waterloo, the day before the 2017 bonus payout date. You had to be present on the day of the payout to get it. Wonder if the people shown the door made it out with theirs or... read more
Who is to blame at this point in time and you need to know that things can be better but people are talking about job cuts in Toronto.
Rumors are flying around, they sometimes can be true and accurate especially when they are talking about layoffs in Toronto.
I don't understand, rejected from postings that has the same title as the one I was let go for before?... Is it the economy? could someone who gave us hard time before also leave negative comments in my file permanently to prevent me being hired... read more
Was with the company for over 10 years and was let go from a boss who lied and was deceitful. Manulife is a terrible place to work. Best thing was being let go from that hell hole. I feel so much better. They treated everyone like crap and at the... read more
Do you have any updates here? I hear that Information Security may have layoffs soon
Gulloin can't increase revenues so he's cutting expenses. Gave himself a 22% increase to 12.5 million in 2013. This is for a stock that is still down 50% from 2008. Most employees have not received inflation increases in over 6 years. It's no wonder... read more
So, get ready
Yes I concur - Du Markowitz LLP:
/ Regarding layoff packages or wrongful termination - they are excellent in the renegotiation of the package. Don't sign anything as the offer on paper is low balled. This law firm has handled many several cases!... read more
So, what's new here? I left in 2008, I was laid off and I hear you guys have issues again?
What is going to happen?
dev and qa on the way out..comp still trying to organized the reorg...
The worst of it is choice is either the Business System Analyst work that you are not actually supposed to be doing or no work at all. You tell me you will go around asking for a review?
In addition to that, I had to spend most of my time calming a kid because he wants to be a "developer" who doesn't really code. Should have signed up a daycare instead of JH.
I never was given any assignment directly. A business analyst gave me his work to do, and I never figured out why I was doing on his work.
Dude, by the sounds of it you deserved to be fired. You are gunna lay back and take no reviews for 2 years? What an idiot. Did you ever get a bonus? Did you ever get the details of your bonus. It's all right there buddy. You had ample opportunity to... read more
Did this happen to anyone? Does anyone know if people could submit our performance reviews without us seeing it? I worked for JH for about 2 years but never received any performance review. I lost my job before my second year tenure, but all this... read more
The multiple names in a box for each role to make sure the best talent is retained is a myth. Look you leaders in the eye and ask them if they believe the words they say about the process of who stays and who goes. It is not about "the best person"... read more
I personally received my termination notice from Manulife and my ROE stated "shortage of work"....that's a layoff! Back in early 2013 Paul Lorentz and Donna Carbell stood in front of theirs leaders and said that the reorganization was to make a... read more
A job is what you make it. We have seen none of the "doom and gloom" layoffs etc. Even the few who were made redundant last year were (for the most part) people who either wanted to go or should be going. Moral is just fine in the area where I work... read more
I think it might be time for a employee satisfaction survey. Let's see what the pulse is. From what I hear, the moral is so low, it's become just a place with a pay check attached.
Not happening. Never happened. Delusional fools were posting here.
Welcome to the world of Elmer Fudd. Stumbling bumbling fools remain. People tiptoeing around hoping not to be the next one on the block. Be wary wary qwiet.
We have all been annoyed by the small pebbles and stones that get lodged in the soles of our shoes. They crunch, grind and make odd sounds on solid surfaces. Now imgaine that each of those pebbles and stones are micro universes. Each with their own... read more
There were people who lost their jobs in October and november. The changes look like they are going to continue for the next little while.Such a shame that manulife is going to lose such good people. You gotta wonder what the criteria is for being... read more
- Well written, clueless, but well written? I'd bet you are managing a large group somewhere in the Philipines, so from your point of view your statements might somewhat make sense. Yet, once you and your 4000 folks get farewell notes and work... read more
No layoffs but resources were re-allocated and some resources were given and end date where no further money would be paid to them by the company. No offshoring but resources were provided jobs at the company's global office in China and Philippines... read more
The only firing is the gun that is aimed at the merciful sheep that are blindly grazing on the green known as Manulife. These quiet lambs go blindly about their business. Eating, pooping and naying the day away. Oblivious to the ruthless deceit... read more
Somebody's head is so far up, they are unable to see. How do you actually perform your job at Manulife? when you keep saying there are no layoffs? I hope that is a sarcastic comment, or maybe what you are trying to say is, there are no layoffs... read more
If you have been fired, are about to be fired, or just curious what it might be to be fired by Manulife then you should download the Severance Calculator app for iphone. This app was written by a Toronto law firm and will do a rough calculation of... read more
