Topics regarding layoffs at Synamedia
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.
New landlord soon. Will be converted to work live play complex.
There is some drama here. Do they stick it out?
Did I miss something? Still alive...
Layoffs have been frozen and we are now hiring again in the US and Canada. I was being asked to cut a couple people from my team but that is no longer the case.
Did you read the email yet? Could not help myself. 1 year of lies. “Earned the trust of customers”!!! What trust? Customers are leaving. Is that what you call trust. Maybe you earned customers trust but lost employees trust. Hooray for... — read more
Astro is my favourite customer. Who is yours?
At Cisco I got RSU grant and bonus every year, at Synamedia we just get base pay. So, I have taken about a 30% paycut this year, how much did you lose this year?
Sales is brought on another person and Delivery is hired another manager. This is not sitting well with a lot of people considering so many are about to loose their jobs within the next week or two. How about we bring on Software Engineers to... — read more
I was spit out to L&T and brought back in. The pay is great, we are getting a new office in Costa Mesa, and the work is pretty interesting. I have been sitting on the sidelines for a while now, watching all of you whine and moan, but enough is... — read more
Anyone else glad they left this dung heep ?
Customer and operations teams are still oversized. Cuts for November.
All hands today...blase blase Couldn't really hear most of what the the suits were saying after DG. They didn't really have much to say other than I hope something happens. Target for next year 312 million split about 50/50 between video... — read more
Go-o-o-o-llee, Goober, it's been a whole year, to the day, since Mr. Moody told you what was coming: "Triton's B3 Corporate Family Rating reflects the expectation of continuing revenue declines, challenges of setting the company up as a... — read more
Can you guess who it is?
As far as I'm concern, I have reached a decision that there is no future for us. We are at least 2 years back in terms of our offering in the new market, our supposed revenue makers are nothing but petty cash, our delivery track and quality is a... — read more
I arrived to the Lawrenceville a bit earlier than usual on Friday, 11:15 AM. I was the first one in the building so I turned on all the lights, immediately noticed a document on the ground which outlined a divestiture plan. According to the document... — read more
Is the exit strategy for Charter to buy cloud dvr? Moving to Denver.
Some posts are being delet
I must say, I joined Scientific-Atlanta in 1997, and relocated to the Lawrenceville campus with my group in 2000 when it opened. For 10 years or so, it was a vibrant, happening place. Interesting technology, interesting people, it felt like the world... — read more
It was a ghost town a few years ago when I was there, can't imagine what it's like there now. How many people are there?
Chandlers Ford to close. Move to Staines or take redundancy. A lucky few got a token bonus - was it you? if not then you're probably on the list. LWR have had their LR, so it's the UK next. Wonder if it's going to be soon enough for the Cisco... — read more
Do we make it into 2020?
Office talking about layoffs. Are we next?
Several Sr. folks in LWR Infinite/cDVR engineering from the old SA crew were offered "Early Retirement" packages. Although it was "optional", my understanding is that all of them accepted. What does that tell you about their faith in the product and... — read more
When Cisco sold us, they committed to pay us bonus for one year at least. In May, they sent an email about bonus being paid in September and not August. Now, there is no bonus!!! Where the “People First” did go? I am afraid we are dealing... — read more
Synamedia LR 12 second level manager in Lawrenceville last week and the VP is also retiring (so in his words). All 12 manager reports direct to him. I wish them the best but it was hard to see what some of them were doing except keeping a paycheck... — read more
is this indicative of company activity?
So Permira has finally realized that they bought a crock and the "management" team are a bunch of id--ts Huge layoffs coming and Grandpa will NOT be protecting the tribe. I hope he'll be OK though — read more
Synamedia has more than twice as many employees as Mediakind, why? Too many directors, no clue what they are doing. Engineering has so many subdomains guess to give all those directors a job. There are even directors for CPE, I really try to figure... — read more
I wonder how long it will be until the reality of the Cisco separation becomes public knowledge? At the outside, I’ll give it until September by hoping June will be a wake up call. They’re in danger of losing some of their best people. There’s a... — read more
is all we need to know.
So far, the people let go seemed well targeted. The people i knew who were let go were people who had retired on the job about a decade ago. Still a lot of dead wood in this company, but if management continues to make smart cuts like this then I... — read more
Synamedia headcount will be 20% of what it is today, business will be sold to a service house to maintain legacy products
Rumors swirling about site strategy meeting in US locations on 2-26-19. Other rumors and news regarding their futures?
Appart from sounding defeated, do you guys propose anything ? I mean, what would you do if this was your business ? Analyse the problem from this angle and it will always serve you well. That being said, I think the company is delivery what the... — read more
My view is that Synamedia is supporting the status quo of the TV industry (and hoping it will stay that way) betting on smart cards and old technology. (why still depending on HW while careless CA offers all the benefits). We are on the eve of... — read more
Many good people at the company that has a lot to offer, but I feel a lot of their skills are staying unused due to a system that’s turned thing at the company to a stet where it’s pretty chaotic. No use having all those resources when they are not... — read more
