Been here 8 years, all of them miserable. Wasted my time, a good portion of the prime of my life, and hated every single second of it. Wokeness turned this company from bad to worse (I'm hispanic fwiw) and to say its a relief that I'll finally be out... — read more
“Network has discussed giving 10 p.m. hour to local station partners, a cost-cutting move as interest in broadcast TV wanes” Maybe we shouldn’t have chased away all our customers with cringe fringe politics and the economic illiteracy of 1960s... — read more
I recently got hired as an inbound sales rep working from home. I start in September, but I was just curious about the commissions? How much are commission checks usually? I know it’s uncapped, but what can I expect? $1500? $3000? Or more?
Now let's see what this means: https://www.theverge.com/2022/7/28/23282072/comcast-broadband-subscriber-flat-first-time-peacock-q2-2022-earnings
Heard a couple of people were laid off today in NJ / Philly. Let's hope it's an isolated thing.
Yes you read it here first - is about to join the board of Synamedia just before Comcast buys it up.
https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20220126005680/en/Comcast-Reports-4th-Quarter-and-Full-Year-2021-Results So what do you think about the financial results?
Lately it seems like there are no leadership decisions that aren’t poorly made?
These people layoff Americans but now have hired people in Asia to do their customer service. So wrong.
Some moves being made by upper management seem to indicate a layoff is coming, has anyone heard anything?
Shame on you Comcast. Yet another example of how terrible Comcast treats it’s employees. A long tenured employee was just laid off and yet leadership tells all of us that this person retired. The fact is they didn’t retire and are looking for work... — read more
When will they tell employees they have to be vaccinated? I’m assuming this month, with the deadline by end of year or earlier for anyone who travels.
Is this true?
It's like you are looking for a reason to be unhappy. Comcast is still one of the best companies in our industry with good pay and decent to good benefits. Yes, it's not perfect and layoffs happen, but that happens everywhere. Go look at some other... — read more
Just heard there will be more layoffs in the NEast as well as a decision about working from home.
After seeing which people are laid off, the best of the best, I don’t know what message they think they are sending to the rest of us? To work on our performance for nothing and then be the first to be laid off when there is a new round of... — read more
I’m still safe, but the situation is very tense. It seems to me that the tension has never been higher. I’m trying to understand the logic by which they give layoffs. Some say it’s about diversity, some think they dismiss the oldest, some colleagues... — read more
Anybody know if the beltway region has any additional layoffs planned?
Has there been any update on this?
The EN money pit is coming to a close. This boondoggle has gone long enough it seems. Who’d have thought it would fail. Lol. Look for most of the team to be disbanded in next 30 days
I was laid off at the end of November. More are being laid off in March. It was the the worst experience ever.
I keep reading about future layoffs but have heard nothing about the time frame. Is it safe to assume it will be by end of year considering it’s already hit the news? I wish there was more transparency in the whole process. This is just nerve... — read more
Are we safe or should we be worried ? Who’s next?
Because it seems that every day I read more news about another company segment having major layoffs. The latest one is Universal Orlando Resort which might lose more than 1,000 employees before the end of the year. Which prompted me to ask, if my... — read more
NBCUniversal's recently formed Television and Streaming division, led by chairman Mark Lazarus, is expected to take the brunt of the layoffs. The unit... — read more
That's a total north of $700 million. As theme parks shed employees, entertainment has also been convulsed by waves of layoffs. Deadline reported yesterday... — read more
Went from proud to devastated. This company has so much debt due to recent acquisitions, it relies on layoffs to stop burning cash.
there is a rumor going around regarding the Harrisburg PA call center. did anyone hear about that?
Its just a sad situation.
Oct 5 2020 - Large scale layoffs under the Universal Parks & Resorts division is currently occurring today and probably still aren't done yet as this is only Monday. Usually it takes 2-3 days for everything to level out and everyone that will be laid... — read more
I used to love my job and now it's turned into a constant source of stress and worry. Job security doesn't exist at Comcast anymore. Even if you survive a round of cuts, you can never consider yourself safe because everybody knows that the next one... — read more
Does anybody know when we can expect more layoffs at Comcast?
Rich Taylor bad guy dont trust him.
This evening I received an email from my director titled “business update“. My counterparts are invited along with multiple HR associates, my managers, and multiple head directors from my region (won’t be specific where but in West Division). My... — read more
Reorg just cost 5 Directors their jobs. Many with long tenures. Amazing how they just throw people away when they don’t need them anymore. Understand this is the first step to larger layoffs in the groups. Good luck folks.
Comcast just terminated a large # of ppl from the supply chain department. ~130-150 ppl, front line warehouse/procurement up to leadership and back office analysts. "Restructuring" that will be occurring in other areas as well.
Are there any expected layoffs in Naperville, IL? I’m sure it will be a surprise, but always good to be prepared.
