It has started. We all knew it was coming after the latest earnings report. There is only so much a certain segment can lose before those at the top decide it's time to make significant cuts. I just hope this will not be as bad as some of us think... — read more
Managing directors never in the office, and when they do they never speak to anyone unless on zoom. Not even a fake hello in the hallway….and the money the spend for hotels, high end dinners, etc. to do nothing worthwhile is amazing with”their... — read more
Are any of you planning to go to the office four days a week? I have zero desire to do it and I will act accordingly. I'm sick and tired of them talking about collaboration when I know nothing will change in the way we have meetings (all on Microsoft... — read more

I work for a competitor and heard this from a comcast engineer. If true, I'm curious what the breakdown is, 50/50? My company's stock package definitely isn't that good, although the vesting is faster.

I was part of the 2022 purge. Conspicuously, the "realignment with core values at other divisions" that was the reason for the elimination of my position had spread to other "realigned" positions of tenured employees. Some of those positions were... — read more
Weird energy today. Everyone's walking around like a chicken waiting for their turn on the chopping block. Something's percolating.

I know it's typical for the end of the year, but with those articles coming out recently about January layoffs, maybe they are getting ahead of the bad news?
https://localtoday.news/fl/nbcuniversal-layoffs-are-coming-in-january-142045.html The temperature of this article doesn't seem all that negative compared to say Warner, but they are coming. Hopefully the damage is minimal.
Major changes, retirements & departures in the network space yesterday.
There were more cuts and "retirements" announced today in the HQ HR space. While it's sad to see, I don't believe these cuts are anywhere close to what is going on at other tech companies. Comcast has always been conservative with its compensation... — read more
