They sc--w employees over every way possible and then act like we should be grateful to have a job. They lie on the regular and are the definition of incompetent and unprofessional leadership. They make no effort to make sure employees are properly... — read more
Lots of people being let go this morning (10/30) across the board. Major RIF. Assume since it’s prior to earnings that they won’t be good.
It appears there has been some layoffs at Extreme. I know more than a few people who have been let go since Friday.
No layoffs coming in April as in previous years?
I have never worked in a company where it is as easy to be fired as here. This place is hire and fire. Do you agree? I know people who got fired for the smallest things.
Is it true we'll be seeing cuts in July?
The morale is zero. In the last two months, more of my colleagues have left than in the last two years, either to Cisco or to Juniper,,, anywhere, except that they are no longer here. That won't end well.
Approaching 2$/share, will it collapse?
Because I sure as hell haven't.
4/15/20 Quarterly results are missed quarter after quarter, so regardless of the virus, Extreme was going to miss targets/expectations anyway. There’s always an excuse. Tariffs, supply chain, mergers, growing pains etc. (4/15 11:30am- day... — read more
Is there such a thing at Extreme Networks? I think it's becoming rather obvious that this leadership has no idea what that means. All they are capable of doing is "fix" ongoing problems with temporary solutions (such as RIFs) and let the underlying... — read more
I see people who used to work here visit this forum so I figured I might ask. If you were laid off, how hard was it to find a new job? Especially if it happened this year. I'm really worried considering the current economic situation. I don't think... — read more
When are there going to be more layoffs and what kind of severance can we expect?
Get rid of all old leadership positions with new younger innovative leaders. Old leadership seems to have a strangle hold on the remainder of the company. From what I’ve heard is that they want to dissolve employees who have long tenure because they... — read more
Layoffs in multiple groups. Support, marketing and sales to start
What can we expect?
Ed Meyercord has missed quarter after quarter. By company standards, he should have been hit in the last reduction. CEO, Chief Excuse Officer.
And yet another round of deep cuts at Extreme Networks today. This is over and above from the m—acre last week. Reports suggest engineering has been destroyed to the point of no return. I am beginning to think the current management has never... — read more
Just heard about big layoffs today, affecting at least the Salem, NH office. XMC and ExtremeControl NAC teams essentially eliminated.
Extreme Networks Leadership Has no clue how to operate a business appropriately. With all the acquisitions they still do not understand how to conduct effective business strategies. They like to hype themselves up but their R&D is horrid. They are... — read more
More layoffs today at Extreme. That place is a joke.
Not sure what you mean by sketchy practices, but I agree that it's a flimsy base and they keep mortgaging future quarter]s business to meet current revenue targets. It's like kiting checks or operating a ponzi scheme. Eventually, the whole thing... — read more
Just wait until FY 2019 results are announced. Restructuring already announced. Sr VP whacked. Big layoffs coming.
The layoffs were apparently to free up money to buy Aerohive. Hard to believe any company would leverage employees like that
Any speculation on who, or when?? Q3 2019??
Extreme is built on a house of cards that will soon come tumbling down. Sketchy practices designed to inflate revenues will soon expose a fundamentally weak financial picture of stagnant growth and poor sales execution. The recent, sudden departure... — read more
Watching this trainwreck from outside. I was so disappointed when Extreme didn't bring me over with the Avaya acquisition, but from what I hear from friends that did make the transition, I'm grateful. By all accounts, this place is in "Extreme"... — read more
Can someone explain to me the near singular focus on margins? Because I think it's a losing strategy in the near term. It's completely putting the cart before the horse. As the number #3 player, we should be focused on growing MARKET SHARE! Grow... — read more
Found this while trying to determine just how big the layoffs were. It's far from precise, but I guess it's the best we'll get for now. "Extreme Networks is laying off between 25 and 99 employees at its Salem location at 9 Northeastern Blvd."... — read more
Get ready for very rough ride. Expect more in late July. Of course, the so-called leaders will ride this dog into the ground, all the while ensuring that they are saved and well compensated. I heard a similar thing, that more layoffs can be expected... — read more
Do we have any idea just how big this round of layoffs was? And are we sure it is done or can we expect more sometime next week?
52 week high 15.55 and is now down to 8.58. How low can this stock go? I worry there is going to be some serious cost cutting layoffs to improve margins?
So the euphoria over the Avaya acquisition is coming to a close - quickly. The leadership is realizing that they were sold a bill of goods, with grossly overstated networking business projections. Consequently, they have miss set Wall Street's... — read more
Just like after the Enterasys acquisition, layoffs are coming in order to make room for the Avaya and Brocade people coming over. They can't keep everyone; synergies must be maximized to achieve the M&A business cases and they will use this... — read more
Extreme seems to be very confident that they will really be the winner in the upcoming auction. Does someone know something we don't? I am really anxious to know.
The Avaya boards seem to be quiet, or at least, lacking in updates. Any news to share, from either side?
Are there any R&D teams located in the Salem office, or is that primarily a Test/Verification facility?
