We all know that there are a good number of people at Citi, especially in LIC, who are such miserable and pathetic human beings (ok, human beings might be a stretch)who live their lives to hurt other people in order to make themselves feel better. Eventually they will be the only ones left and then things will start to get interesting!

To "Waiting my turn" and "Getwithit" I wish I had more information for you. As I mentioned it will be gross orientated per branch. I'm appalled at the good people we've lost because of mismanagement and greed up top. So many lives have been pushed to the edge and stressed out, with so many more waiting for the call to the managers office. I come into this site to gather information to add to my own and try to make some sense of it. Not all here know from where they speak if you get my drift. Some are just plain agitators. I will continue to keep my ears open and if I hear ANYTHING I will let everyone know. If you are in a SB branch and it's holding it's numbers (business) you'll be fine. I've heard some consolidating in the research area, however, remember that with the JV going on and even though Morgan Stanley has it's own research, we will be consolidating with each other. It's not much, but all I know for now.

Thanks for brightning up my day
I'm sorry if I upset you. I didn't mean to put a negative spin on an already stressful situation. I just wanted you all to know that there are worse things that could happen. Keep an eye on the internet. Read Bloomberg news or Vanguard market news. That's how I found out about our closings before they announced them to us. If they do close you down, or start laying off, it will either be the end of May or first of June to take care of the 30 days they have to give you before the new quarter starts. I know how nervous you all are, and I hope that whatever happens the sun will always shine on your face. good luck!

Hey come on, we all have to face reality here and realize that this company has been poorly run by a bunch of cheats starting with Sandy in 1998 followed by Prince and now Bandit...not to mention Rubin. We all have to grow up and smell the coffee and realize that we will all be out of work soon. Instead of sulking, everyone needs to get their resume togeteher and start pounding the pavement looking for employment with a good company. A company that appreciates it's employees and rewards them accordingly and doesn't outsource all of the jobs to India. Let's face it, Citi is over loaded with mid-level managers who call themselves Directors wo are totally useless. Not only don't they do any meaningful work, but due to their overall ignorance, are actually a hinderance to us all.

How much money would Citi save by cutting out at least 1 or 2 levels of middle management. Is it really necessary to have an Area Director and District Manager who are essentially doing the same thing? Why not cut out the AD level, DM's can interact with EVPs. AD's don't interact with the customer on a daily basis, so why keep em around?

obviously you are one of the people that citigroup was just requesting permission from the government to give a bonus to. also, their profit loss was not due to giving everyone who works their ass off to keep this company going a measely 2% merit increase....get REAL!
Nope, just an American that looks at the bigger picture and is glad to have a job and knows what it is like to be laid off and out of work for 10 months. I realize that I was fortunate at the time to get a new job at all and I was very close to having to make some really bad decisions regarding my home and 401k. I had went through my severance and my savings. I wouldn't wish being JD'd to anyone and if not paying the 2% increase saved jobs, which I believe it probably did, it was the right thing to do.

It is unfortunate on this board that if someone disgrees with what another says they are attacked. If you only knew how far down the food chain that I am and not one of the folks that would be in the rarified air of the exception folks senior management wants to look out for. I'm just a person in O & T and doesn't bring in revenue, only costs the firm $$$ as in expenses. Get your facts straight.

Heard rumor that Hag did not add up sales commissions correctly for the last year. I am hearing that they owe everyone about 30% more. I am sure it was an honest mistake though.

There would more layoffs in UK by June/July majorly in business where they look after their Operations. Most of the jobs are now outsourced to TCS/Wipro and some are offshored to Philipines also.

I dont understand the Political concept where Govt says no job is being outsource but are they really looking to see if they are been outsourced or not. All the Taxpayers money is being given to save the banks and also to other companies outside the countries.

Hows this one for you all??? Pension funds unresolved for 7 months from Connect One. It has taken 7 months for a single item to be resolved, that still isn't resolved. Absolutely INSANITY. They claim it isn't their problem but State Streets, passing the buck!!!!
