Topics regarding layoffs at Synamedia
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
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
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
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 I miss something? Still alive...
There is some drama here. Do they stick it out?
Customer and operations teams are still oversized. Cuts for November.
Is the exit strategy for Charter to buy cloud dvr? Moving to Denver.
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?
Astro is my favourite customer. Who is yours?
Anyone else glad they left this dung heep ?
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

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?
Can you guess who it is?
Do we make it into 2020?
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
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

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
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
I don't believe it's 1B.
Well, you know, that Brexit stuff...
Who from YK's old guard made it to Synamedia and how do we influence them to be ousted?
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

The company is bleeding capital, and efforts are underway to start consolidating product teams and closing U.S. sites. Layoffs have already occurred and will continue for some time. What site closings are you talking about? Has there been an... — read more
For people who are worried about Synamedia’s future, chances are you will not find any place where layoffs are not going to be a possibility at some point. Even Apple and Amazon have layoffs, it’s just the reality of today’s business. This is still... — read more
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 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
