  • It is correct that in a previous round of redundancies, everyone was put in a room and then when you got back to your desk, if you had an email you were up for redundancy. But then, in the last round of redundancies earlier this year, affecting partners and one senior associate, HK changed tack and decided that rather than just tell those involved, they would send a firmwide email naming all of those affected. So those poor individuals were indeed paraded in front of the firm - nice and discreet and caring.

  • nice to see the recruitment/head-hunting industry has time on its hands this afternoon to post disruptive comments. the disgusting way it goes around trying to dislodge people is the only thing that makes toes curl!

  • I'd be very worried if I was a fee earner at HK right now re the comment at 9.55am, obviously someone who knows the plan of action;

    'I also hope that the combined firm, upon merger, trims some of its fee earner headcount - there will be some duplications and there certainly are some fee earners around the edges who are not producing. Again, commercial sense.'

  • True. So they learnt from being too transparent and still get kicked for trying to do the right thing? Is there any winning when it comes to the awful reality of redundancies? Of course not. Unless you have a better idea?

  • Unbiased point of view here as I don't work in this industry. Redundancies should be made aware to "ALL" employees first, they shouldn't have to read it in the press. It's not rocket science!!!

  • This firm beggers belief. Hope they don't get rid of too many staff as I am in no doubt they will have trouble recruiting anybody to join them!

  • There are no 'recruitment/head-hunters posting disruptive comments' these comments are the truth and maybe are proving a bit hard to swallow, shambles.

  • The reputation of this firm will always be in ruins due to appalling treatment of staff. Current management aren't getting it right. Good luck FSI!
