Brilliant Idea!

Let’s all wait till next Friday and see who gets cut. All of us they axe... let’s go into the App Store/Google Play store ect... and rate the HBOmax app 1 star or less, which it deserves, because it’s trash. Watch it tank and really give those C... —  read more

It's not voluntary

Seniority doesn't matter, numbers don't matter, if they want you gone, you're going. Was told today that none of the level 1, 2, OR 3 managers were consulted about techs being affected. They were provided a list generated by ATT legal & some other... —  read more

Outsiders Needed

We need executive management at the very top to be an outsider. Continuing to promote each other within the executive pool is bringing the same culture and process. Literally giving you a pig and slapping different lipstick on them AND saying this is... —  read more

Unethical behavior

Anyone with a conscience can understand why NPS is low. AT&T's public plan is to get rid of 'value' customers and only focus on 'high quality' customers. AT&T is using data mining and artificial intelligence for the past few years to analyze exactly... —  read more

Cut the dividend already!

Finally, somebody to point out something that should be blatantly obvious to everybody. With its 7% dividend and its $209 billion market cap, AT&T (NYSE:T) is widely considered a blue-chip investment. However, General Electric (NYSE:GE) investors... —  read more

Does anyone remember Randall....

Do you remember a town hall before the Warner acquisition when Randall was asked by a "lowly" employee about the wisdom of taking on so much debt to acquire a media company? He smirked and waved it off, saying, he "would never bet the farm" on an... —  read more 

Life after the T

Does anyone know how many techs took the SIPP offer. I keep hearing they got more than the 176 they were looking for, not sure if it’s true

If you survive layoffs, then what?

Will you be able to transfer? Get a promotion? Will T open new jobs?? Or maybe beware of “another round” like Chris Brown?? These are questions one must ponder if they choose to remain on the payroll. Individuals must carefully look at their... —  read more
