What does it all mean? Is this a shift in power towards UK? There’ll be nothing now to stop massive cuts in engineering. Short term gain but it will ki-l the products that we’ve worked so hard on.
Dear Customer, I want to apologise that your project will be delivered late. As you know we have a world leading engineering team but they are hyper busy at the moment. The calendars are full. My current calendar is as follows: Monday 19th July -... — read more
Which side is sinking faster? Who is dragging down who? Will there be greener pastures if the unholy marriage is given the chop?
Big changes in senior manager line up?
We'll miss you. Just kidding. No one will notice.
I worked here for seven years. I can't be so dishonest as to say that there weren't any good things here. There were some, but the best thing that happened to me was getting laid off. If it hadn't happened, I’d probably still be wasting time here... — read more
Layoffs will likely continue until the legal bill has been paid and we all go on to live happily ever after in the building we thought we'd left.
Layoffs have just ended a few weeks ago and I'm already seeing job openings for the same positions that were cut. This makes me so mad - it was never about saving costs on laying off bad performers. Instead, it was all about getting rid of the best... — read more
Obligatory email last week announcing head of HR was "leaving", a roundabout way of saying she was forced out or was invited to resign. Watch for more cuts coming soon - it's earning season - and announcements of job expansion in India. New CEO... — read more
15+ UK based Support Team employees laid off. Most have been supporting customers for over 10 years!
New Synamedia building in Jerusalem is half the size of the old one because over half the employees have left or been let go. When will this down spiral end?
Realize this ... there won’t be better days. Look at the industry you’re in. Look at the trends in video, look at your competitors, and then look at what you are building. Look at who is leading. What is your plan? Figure that out before you start... — read more
Synamedia is in a death spiral thanks to leadership in finance. They do not understand the business or the importance of “industry related experience” or “subject matter expertise” so they’re laying off skilled, experienced developers to replace... — read more
So LWR is looking for a new home. Contenders - an abandoned WinnDixie and 3 closed down RadioShack stores.
Clueless Sales team. Lost major service contract with key US MSO. Influencers on customer side were unaware contract was not renewed until sales team contacted them after the fact. Huge miss, sales tries to downplay it. Best of luck trying to make up... — read more
How is this week looking?
Things do not look good for Synamedia now
I know about 7, there are more.
There are rumors of more cuts in LWR, I am not sure how many there are.
In many other cases the new CEO comes in to fix problems, so I wonder if there will be any good solutions for the company. I think Synamedia needs some good changes but I'm not sure what to expect from leadership changes at the top. Any thoughts on... — read more
It's really quiet today, so for once in my life I'm going to be optimistic and say we might be done with this round finally.
Are cuts done for now or will there be more next week?
But will Lawrenceville be OK? Who cares.
Layoffs in LWR last week. Half of our team got hit. No mention of it in the quarterly meeting a week ago. "Things are moving along as planned and we are executing, and gaining new customers, bla, bla, bla." If you work in LWR, looks like the plan... — read more
Any news if this is being paid and when.
Technicolor stock price down 98% in the last 5 years. Still trending down. Which will be the first to be gone from this earth, Synamedia or Technicolor ? They're in a big dogfight to try and be the first. My money is on Synamedia. Somebody... — read more
Rumors circulating more cuts happening this week, LWR losing more to NDS 2.0 mis-management.
With 6 buildings to share among the remaining 13 employees, everyone can have their own floor
old cto goes back to sales new cto takes over the engineering some execs leave what does it mean for we, the people?
So. After the "no bonus" surprise and the promise of pay-rises and adjustments in January which was then delayed to March (though backdated to January), are you all pleased? I would call it "constructive dismissal". After 6 years stagnation in... — read more
Yesterday Synamedia leaders decided to balance the books with another LR. LWR affected across all levels. Other locations as well?? Rumors are yes. For those keeping score: • 1.5 years on and no accounting system to capture revenues / expenses /... — read more
some more layoffs today
ST and MS are gone so no one high up the org left on site. Israel being built up as the center of the company so will grab back Infinite. Staines already in bed with Sky so will take any of that work remaining. Once Cisco TSAs are complete and... — read more
What are you working on?
Is all we need to know.
It’s the start of a new year. Let’s mark it with some great ideas on where we should go now. What do you think are the big things that need to change? What’s holding us back? What are the big opportunities that we should push for? And..... go. — read more
New landlord soon. Will be converted to work live play complex.
There is some drama here. Do they stick it out?
