Frontier only wants low cost contractors to do all jobs. They don't care about anything, they don't know how anything works, they have no clue. The college kids from Bain are just cutting all the ways Frontier actually makes money and stays afloat... — read more
Are they planning to stop layoffs at some point? FTR is losing very valuable people, this will damage the company in the long run. Sometimes I feel they do not value workers.
Omfg!!! Now they have local managers going door to door with flyers offering customers higher speed. Un-phucking-believable I think we must have elementary school children running this damn thing. SMH — read more

If FTR management truly had people running scared it would be the customers. Just saying. Everything is broken down to the culture. No one wants to help but everyone points fingers. The front runners on the calls are great but no where near top notch... — read more

FTR isn’t worth much these days. I’m really surprised a company like Comcast hasn’t plunked down an insulting but irresistible offer and taken the place over. Consider this: A large cable MSO could easily come in and migrate a large portion of the... — read more

I feel like Frontier is trying to force as many of us to quit as it can. Did you notice how even the slightest infractions are now blown out of proportion? How managers have started behaving even worse than before - going as far as to yell at... — read more
Forcing your employees to function in an environment where they feel they must constantly look behind their backs for micro-managing supervision who are tasked with reducing the workforce makes for an extremely unsafe workplace.
Frontier Communications is doing its best to thin-out their workforce by k--ling moral with poor treatment, a lack of appreciation, empowerment, and trust, and firing its employees based on silly, trivial, on-the-fly rules. The number of Company... — read more
