There are rumors of layoffs for the upcoming few weeks. Has anyone else heard this?

Prince has stated that he wants 1 billion dollars in expenses cut this year.

I've heard from more than one source that there will be early retirement packages offered and then layoffs if the retirement offers aren't hitting the numbers they want. This supposedly will happen across all the businesses between Arpil 01 - 10.

We'll see.

I think layoffs will occur in mid April

I think layoffs will occur in April as Druskin is supposed to unveil his plan to cut 1 billion expense by then.

The rumor is that citifinancial will demote, retire or let go 30 Regional Managers and Eliminate all Managing Director jobs. They have forced some Executive VP's to retire and may close branch offices.

I think there will also be a lot of layoffs in Citi IT as they continue to move more technology jobs to India.

Primerica is a part of Citigroup. Why would they be exempt from layoffs?

Does anyone really know? It is all speculation until the big announcement.
Hey P J Lewis! Is your source a reliable one?

Today my manager said that at first it was thought that the 15,000 could be met through normal attrition and we simply wouldn't rehire when people left the bank. However that is impractical when certain buisnesses will cease to function if we went that route. Unfortunately I'm afraid that no Citi function will be safe until after the announcement. We DO get 2 weeks pay for every year of employment, though.. Huzzah! Better turn in touition reimbursement while you can!

I heard the same news; that RM's are a target. Not sure if it's true. We'll all find out on April 16th.

I am in cards in LIC. We are hearing they will be consolidating most of the card products that operate in silos back into centers of excellence. they just undid that structure back in October. Guess they are clueless about where they need to be.
I also heard today that since the impact will be major, they are considering 3 months job search to find a job as well as 3 weeks for every year of service.
That would be nice! I hear Monday 4/11 (After Easter and Passover) will be pink slip day.

I am with Citifinancial and it is a shame to see all the levels of execs. I was with Avco Financial Services for many years and one of the problems they had was too many levels. Now at Citifinancial it is worse. We did hear the same thing about the R.M.s and its not a bad thing. The District Managers could easily report directly to a Managing director. Problem is with Citifinancial, they still have all the execs left from other company buy purchases, and duplicate offices one block from each other.

Layoff Unknown,
As reliable as anyone else, I guess. Came from an RM Hqtrs in the South. Can't say more. Don't want to be ID'd.

May be some divestitures in the works. Sell off Smith Barney and Primerica? How much stock does the Prince from Saudi own? He seems to be pulling the strings.
