TMUS can only hope their slow and bloated teams can handle sprint core businesses. I would say layoffs will happen one year after, once customers started to leave the new fat, slow and now irrelevant company.
Topics regarding layoffs at Sprint
This is not a merger kids. This is a take over. It’s not going to take years it’s going to take months. Once traffic is on TMUS, S employee resource requirements are going to shrink dramatically and quickly. TMUS needs to eliminate duplicate costs... — read more
Now that we know the merger is going to go through when can we expect layoffs to start? I think we'll see more cuts than T-Mobile so I plan to be prepared if my name is on the list.
Just curious as we haven't had much hiring and communication
I was recently fired via Corporate Security on their lack of investigation, from what was stated by the SM, two consultants in the store were committing internal fraud and was (basically) doing theft by conversion. I was accused of helping the... — read more
Boos reduced workforce by 5% - perhaps this delay in deadline we’ll see more in the coming days on the postpaid side?
Sprint is ripping people bank accounts. If you have had them and owe them money- they are debited your cards and accounts. You might have laughed first, but they are laughing last.
I hope they offer to let employees opt for voluntary layoffs.
Looks like it’s all systems go for the merger on this side with field teams changing directions for a final push this week. Still lots of uncertainty for job losses in the wake of the announcement. Still feeling pretty left in the dark about the fate... — read more
For those of you still hanging on at Sprint...if you were offered and did not take the GREAT layoff package offered to folks with years of Seniority in early 2016....that was a mistake. Bad news is apparently coming. Sprint is running out of money. I... — read more
Now that the merger is about to be canned and that Sprint has been saying it can't compete I cant help but feel there will be immediate layoffs after the merger is declined. Sprint's way of saying "I told you so" to the DoJ. In the event the merger... — read more
If your a Sprint employee and worried about layoffs ( which has been happening since early-mid 2000) take the package and leave. I was there 12 years, took a package in January 2016. I barely looked for a job and started in March 2016. Not only was I... — read more
The merger talks are all about tmo and how we're going to do things their way. That's normal as they're buying us, but we're moving down to just a handful of buildings in Overland Park, which means less seats - and this is just the beginning. Oh... — read more
From what I understand a slow clean out has begun and by the beginning of 2020 there won't be much left except for IoT.
Let's share how many people from your group are going to "new co" meetings? Our group has at least 40% in all day meetings (up to 4 days a week) as well as traveling to attend these meetings. Seems like a lot of people & $$ with a few people left to... — read more
I'd just rather know if I'm being cut right now and plan accordingly than have to stay in this limbo for months on end just stressing over what "might" happen sometime in the future. I know there are people who can just shrug it off until it actually... — read more
Honestly, do you have any idea how bad layoffs will be when/if it goes through? Just thinking about it increases my anxiety tenfold. I can't understand how anybody - from Sprint OR T-Mobile - could be in favor of this - unless they are upper... — read more
Where are people talking about the possible sprint / tmo merger layoffs? I'm finding nothing here - I'm sure people have opinions
Wanna guess how they will pay For this? https://finance.yahoo.com/m/ff9da6f5-dd14-32be-8cc4-e8c25c003361/tax-settlement-takes-75%25-of.html?.tsrc=applewf — read more
Great News! Looks like T Mobile is making room for additional Sprint employees in Bellevue.
Future of jobs in OP? 3 years and the refresh will be complete in Bellevue https://www.geekwire.com/2018/t-mobile-unveils-plans-160m-dramatic-refresh-headquarters-campus/ — read more
anyone hearing anything for enterprise or SMB? Hearing TMobile is light in those areas but does a lot of that business via retail. With a few thousand people in B2B curious to know what the plan is
In the South region nearby in my area they’ve been closing COR stores and have opened/converted more Brightstar and Sprint Select stores. The employees that I spoke with didn’t know anything until they showed up at their store for work and were told... — read more
Is just a freaking mess everywhere. Everyone running scared trying to justify they worthless jobs.
Seems Sprint continuing to lay off before an answer from the feds from prior comments to merge with T-Mobile is becoming true. Comments from Sprint saying keeping the employees that are left after the merger also seems thay are talking out of both... — read more
This will be an ugly Friday for folks under David Ham. I hope you have contingencies.
WIreline has laid-off a large number of people.
Mass layoffs have started on Wireline side of the house. Going to be a lot of folks out of work. Organization can't make up their minds about how to structure their business.
What's current severance offered by Sprint? I've heard it was severely reduced from several people, and was wondering if that is true?
With layoffs that took place last week, I'm thinking that the process might continue into this week. I really wish they would, to be honest. We know many huge layoffs will be happening. The sooner they are done with them, the better. I'm tired of... — read more
They finally started laying off some of the NR team! We kinda knew it was coming but I thought it would have happened earlier.
