https://variety.com/2023/digital/news/peacock-ends-free-tier-nbcuniversal-1235508588/ Congratulations, Jeff.
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.
Nothing burger here, plenty of cheap talk and uninformed buzz, rumors and a few dozen actual retirements/reorgs does not equal a layoff for those of us who have actually WORKED through true massive layoffs in the early 90’s and after the dot-com... — read more
Got my walking papers from sale but a birdy told me google spent most of 2022 poaching advertising budgets from linear for their new shorts program. anyone here have experience with adsense? seems similar, albeit in the digital space but would be... — read more
Hey this side business is profitable. Let's sink our teeth into it and search all their couches for loose change. Don't they see the tension in the room? Or did WFH dull that sense?
I think notices are going out this week. At least one person I know of is being let go on December 23rd. Anyone know anything?
Maybe Gasper will be shown the door. Too much darkness lurking in those eyes. It wouldn't be the first time his mismanagement and abuse of people cost him dearly.
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
There's talk about layoffs that are slated to happen sooner rather than later in NBC Tech Ops. Does anybody know more about it? It's really hard to get any official info on something like this even if there should be at least something. I guess... — read more
Saw this on Twitter and it made me laugh during a stressful time so I thought I'd share it here (plus, where's the lie?) My source says the plan at Comcast is to fire everyone but 5 who’ll pick out which reruns of American Ninja Warrior to fill... — read more
I am still here but I hope that I will be a target. If I were the leadership, I would be very worried why employees would want such a thing. I have been working here for a long time and I never would've thought that a day would come when so... — read more
Comcast has started the process of restructuring. One of the lucky cut employees here.
CMCSA down 52% from this time last year? What the he-l is going on Comcast? Break it down for us so we can understand why investors are getting out.
Someone at the top is sending this down the pipe and making it into a political issue rather than the business issue leading to job losses. What they call "woke capitalism" has nothing to do with republicans and democrats, it's a fake trend that... — read more
Long time Comcast employee here. Our stock is down 46% over the last year. Does anyone know of any impending budget reduction activities in the works? I can't believe we haven't heard rumors yet.
"Executives at other studios are canceling projects even with stars attached or putting them on the back burner. They’re also regularly asking for 20% reductions in budgets for series, according to talent agents Bloomberg News spoke with. The tighter... — read more
"NBCU is laying off 37 television staffers who worked on E! Network's "Daily Pop" and "Nightly Pop." https://archive.ph/iYoNt "NBCU is far from the only TV network or studio engaging in layoffs this year. Netflix has let go of at least 450... — read more
https://finance.yahoo.com/news/comcast-billion-dollar-budget-cuts-hollywood-streaming-230100793.html This topic is in response to this article. Thoughts?
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?
