The WARN Act requires an employer to notify employees, in writing, 60 days before a layoff, and pay the employee for those 60 days, in addition to any severance the employee may be entitled to. Unfortunately, some employers attempt to circumvent the... — read more
I wish they would just cut deeper to begin with. The uncertainty increases the difficulty in coping and focusing on the job. Thankfully, I got my resume updated by a professional recently, and will keep my options open.
Any changes to employee packages now that NFL ST is gone?
Since the lay offs I have not had my applications work properly and the applications for scheduling are not working so yes my pay is affected. I am extreamlly disappointed in directv's direction. I really wished we could have been somthing
For individuals leaving January 20th. If you are 55 years old or turning 55 this year you can withdraw from your 401k and not be subject to the 10% early withdraw tax penalty.
old and scared of a layoff from Directv but getting no information from the company
It’s so sad that about 10% of the management team has been laid off. There is a lot of good talent that has been lost today. For those impacted, keep your chin up. The market isn’t as bad as it might seem for all of your wonderful skill sets-... — read more
Today word is a 10% reduction in employees by Jan 20 2023.
Looks like it's not just the Management.
Company is cutting 400 employees
It’s over guys, for those who are at the bottom toll of the seniority list expect to get layoff because DirecTV just lost the nfl network.
The layoffs will be directly tied to the continuing decline of satellite. After next year, look for a serious break up to part ways with that side of the business, which means layoffs galore. Keep looking for other jobs. The TOG buy in was to polish... — read more
There is no doubt that DTV is sinking very fast. I also don't see what could help DTV get back on track, but maybe someone still thinks that there is a strategy that could fix this mess?
Purely out of curiosity, I'm interested in how you think DTV will look in 5 years.
Finally! Just when I thought that I won't be able to find a new job and was getting desperate, my efforts paid off. I received a very solid offer and I am happy to leave here. Does anyone else see their future here? I doubt it.
If the economy turns around, do you anticipate any DIRECTV layoffs? Any chatter, news or rumors?
What is the line where we drop below the "break even" point in terms of numbers customers and the ability to fund the basic operation of this company? To the best I can discern from industry reports, we have somewhere between 11 million and 14... — read more
I just accepted an offer from DTV in the data science department and looking forward to joining the company. I've read many comments here and the general consensus is that T messed up DTV's good reputation. Can anyone share what DTV was like before... — read more
There is normally a one year quiet period (no radical changes keeping everyone calm) after separating a large business segment from the parent company. Is anyone expecting policy changes or headcount rationalization after August 1st? We are 70% owned... — read more
The IRS Segment Rates are increasing, first 3.0 Second 4.22 Third 4.17 as of April 2022
DTV Stream is the future and I suspect the skill set is weighted towards satellite service that is waning. Maybe it's time to adjust headcount levels with emphasis on streaming service and perhaps that's why many new hires have been brought onboard... — read more
Losing customers is a logical sequence of events, given that the company has long neglected their wishes and needs. I just hope they will know how to effectively improve customer retention?
As somebody else mentioned, we're currently amid a hiring spree and for a change, things have been going right for a while now. There is no reason for cuts at this point. I'm usually a glass-half-empty kind of guy, but even I have to admit that I've... — read more
How bad will layoffs be?
WarnerMedia Discovery deal is closed. DIRECTV is 70% owned by ATT and the discussions must be how to exit completely. Is DISH the only feasible option to acquire DTV? It's touted often DIRECTV is a separate company but how is that possible when owned... — read more
With salary percentage increases at DTV?
It is not clear from the benefit programs communication
Any insights what this will be?
Increasingly, I have the impression that leadership has no desire for this company to be strong and grow, on the contrary, that leadership has become destructive. My personal opinion. Conditions are getting worse to for employees here, the... — read more
How likely is that there will be DIRECTV layoffs? Any chatter, news or rumors?
How can We get rid of the CWA lets go back to the real days of DTV. All they do is take our money and then Run
Does anyone have a clear cut picture on any benefits? They stopped taking money out of our checks for ATT savings since we spun away. Not sure on insurance. I want to sign up since I got a divorce. But not sure if that is in the works? Not even... — read more
All the press reports would lead one to believe that the NEW DIRECTV is it's own entity yet again. But working for them makes me wonder how true this actually is. We still wear AT&T branded apparel, our vans still have their globe, we still use... — read more
Ive been in some high level meetings on our 3 year plan. Lets be honest, TPG bought us for pennies on the dollar with the goal to flip us within 3 years. They are cutting costs everywhere and trying to raise profits to look better Ive seen multiple... — read more
For those MGRs who transitioned to DIRECTV and retired from AT&T (MR75 eligible) on July 31st. How long does it take to receive your Lumpsum payment? Is anyone in the process of rolling over to a Fidelity traditional IRA?
WIll ATT is done with us. Where can we do savings now? Health insurance?
so why are still living in the same house as the ex? According to all of the Bill Morrow Workplace BS and the writings of the business press, you would think that DTV is now a stand-alone company with no operational ties to the Death Star. So can... — read more
