How much of a severance pay do we get to "take home"?

Big lay offs at Verizon and AT&T
Maybe Hans and Stanky will compare lay off notes. Accenture is licking their chops wanting both companies to out source more to their group in the Philippines. Both our companies are slow sinking ships it seems.
AT&T and Vendor Partners
Several years ago much of the ATS/ATO IT teams were outsourced to Accenture. Some teams where split between AT&T and Accenture. Others where mostly Accenture. I have heard nothing about Accenture resources coming back to the office or relocating. ... — read more

Life after AT&T

The top criteria for a virtual location assignment will be who you know and then who you are.
Skill set, past performance, or importance of job function will have nothing to do with the decision. Virtual location selection will be a function of friends & family - and maybe race & gender. Think college admissions process. You just wait. — read more

The way of T
I perceive this board no more as about T layoffs but about T decay in live. It seems as we all are sure where T is heading and there is no way back, so layoff is desired thing for many of us and not a concern.
