Topics regarding layoffs at FTD
My theory is that FTD management paid the Trib to pick up the risk statement in the filing where it would spread like wildfire. The thinking behind this is that management has found a buyer but they want management to find ways to thin out the ranks... read more
In case liquidation turns out to be inevitable, what does that mean for our severances? I've been trying to find some info on this online, and everything I managed to find so far is not good for employees. Does anybody know the answer to this... read more
Good job management! What's next?

Can someone on this board explain to me why Proflowers seems to be running the company? I thought FTD acquired Proflowers in 2014. Why is San Diego even around? They keeep advertising the proflowers brand but keep losing money on it. Why??? Just look... read more
I work at mtac and I think it was not developing any platforms until we started to go in the red.
I'm not at FTD anymore but I hope for all of your sakes it's a good holiday, good luck on vday! 1800 believes they can drive FTD out of business. https://seekingalpha.com/news/3428100-1minus-800-flowers-com-raised-fy2019-guidance
Five people got laid off last week.. Three were from membership and 2 from OMC.
Hey, So the layoffs are gonna happen after vday, the .COM call center will be hit first then directory. They wanna have the overseas staff trained before mothers day.
I heard a rumor that if the stock continues it's trend there might be some more cuts even before Xmas to attempt a boost before the beginning of the year (note, this is not substantiated).
We should be frightened of this. If this happened during Valentine's Day, Google unilaterally shutting down and deleted all services, it would be doom... read more
Rumor is it's back. Anyone have anything to share?
This guy understands the FTD business well. https://seekingalpha.com/article/4223217-ftd-companies-deserves-dead-cat-bounce
Looks like the sale discussions are going well. Levin got granted 750k shares and 40k a month raise.
HR has been trying to up the glassdoor reviews score by posting fake reviews, Careful they try to spin it all positive.
The right direction is not laying off senior people and hiring fresh out of school kids who have no knowledge what the organization needs, or keeping old management who does not care about morale or the development of the staff. There was a time when... read more
Can you answer yes to any of these questions? Have you started within the last year and missed commitments, failed to deliver or have been over budget on projects? Or just not "catching on"? Are you the weakest contributor on your team, is it very... read more
stock might drop down to 1.50, Thanks executive management.
This site seem to get a lot of traffic based on the views. Anyone have any guess on the future they'd like to share? Should we expect an Exodus, turn around, or fire sale? Anyone feeling good or bad and wanting to vent?
There's a rumor going around that there will be another massive round of layoffs before Valentine's Day.
Between mourning all the people we lost last week to layoffs (some of our best workers were among them) and fearing we'll be blindsided with more layoffs this week, this was one of the worst weekends I had in a while. Even now I'm up in the middle of... read more
I see layoffs have brought out the worst among us in droves. Everybody is suddenly complaining about FTD and yet everybody keeps working here. If things are so bad why don't you leave? I like working here. That's why when rare layoffs happen I'm... read more
Does somebody know what kind of severance was offered in this layoff round? I've heard it was changed since the last time, but the source I got it from is not the most reliable one so I'm hoping somebody here can help me out with it. Any info will be... read more
I'm not with FTD anymore, I left a year ago on my own but I still have friends there. I was searching to find more info on what's going on after reading about layoffs, and what I found is that nothing changed in the last year. It looks like morale is... read more
It seems as if the goal to spend as much money as possible while not, in reality, adding any value? $10 million and all that's been done is a home page, and a product page at a % of traffic. Then the tech leadership gets a promotion.
we have one of the most incompetent management teams out there. first of all, they lack any kind of direction. can anybody tell me what is the goal of our current business strategy? second of all, they focus on making decisions that might have worked... read more
At least I'd have severance to show for it (there was severance, right?) Like this I'm stuck in a company that is going downhill really fast. The pay was always bad, but once upon a time at least I did only my job for it. Now I am expected to do five... read more
Are we expecting more layoffs today? From what I understand, the groups that were already hit are safe for now, but those that had no layoffs are not out of the water yet. I'm thinking that Friday is not really a good day for layoffs and that... read more
What's your prediction on layoffs? Is PMALL / BBB the acquirer? If yes, what will be the magnitude of layoffs? Are you working on your resume?
They said the layoffs were completed yesterday end of day in the Downers Grove office, but word's been spreading that it will last past Monday. Not sure if this is all locations.
