oh this isn't shocking. I had a Viacom executive take credit for my work on something. Yay! You did all the work! Congrats!

Man up, Viacom! You should have had more faith in the people that built these networks and the creative minds that created your content ... before it was a sinking ship. But the fight within the family was enough to burn the house down. The asses that were kissed were the wrong ones.

Jim Ackermen— Love & Hip Hop was fired before the series premiered. Joke's on you Viacom. But who prospered the most?

The freelancers that worked for years without becoming staff. Let's not forget who the creative mind was behind the Jersey Shore... or did you? He sat in a cube after the premiere skyrocketed. This is the work environment that Viacom fosters. Work, we take credit, if it succeed I'M WINNING, if it fails, YOU'RE FIRED.

The creative minds and hard workers Viacom cuts. Yet, you take their ideas... and have no new creative ones and reboot them?

Take your money out of the stock and invest elsewhere. Let the ship sink.

there are still a few that can go in MTS. VPs at near retirement age, managers who don't manage, etc.

Yes, CBS has been purging people for some time.

We all know of the ongoing Viacom job cuts. Working in MTS I would think we are at bare bones right now. Things could change post merger though. What about CBS? Have they been “trimming the fat” as well?

press is picking up
announcement will prob be next week not 8/8

My understanding is 8/8 is the earnings call for both CBS and Viacom and the internal deadline to have a merger announced by, not a date of more layoffs. Viacom is trying to avoid the negative publicity of past layoffs and are doing them more on a rolling basis now.

It’s 100% coming. Could be first week of August but if you heard a date you probably have it right - I just know it’s August
