Thread regarding Sprint layoffs

A likely bloodbath I’m afraid

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 as soon as possible. Look for S VP’s, Directors and managers to start jumping ship over the next several weeks. Expect redundant groups to be eliminated or cut 50% by years end or sooner. Teams working on expansion may fare better.

TMUS is taking over S, it looks and quacks like a hostile duck.

This is the way these things go. If you don’t think you’ll make the cut, stay positive. Hope for a descent severance package and/or start looking.

Nearly 15 Sales and Operations Directors have been given notice of separation as of yesterday 6/4. Jon Freier originally said nearly everyone below Director level which includes District Manager and District Ops Manager were also safe. He recanted that 2 weeks ago and now we await our impending doom. Most directors termed were from Legacy Sprint and Metro.

TMO has made a list of duplicate roles and team to keep, use for short term, and cut. Higher ups looking at retail, indirect sales, and business sales closely. A good source at HQ mentioned that indirect sales in the West will be cut dramatically first, retail Corp stores in duplicate foot prints, and business teams merged. It will be a blood bath my fellow co-workers.

Having worked for Sprint for many years I can say with certainty, that when you hear statements like post ID: @6oub+13Hs9EB6, telling you to just keep working, keep your nose to the grind wheel...believe me, heads will roll. They are only interested in getting the most from you in the time remaining and then you will be out without a thought. Hopefully you folks still have a decent separation package. Good luck to all.

I wound not worry to much, remember T Mobile has already announced that this merger would be a "job creator". So please have faith our new parent company will be true to their word. Just continue doing the best job you can and you will have nothing to worry about.

Talent and expertise with relevant technology (not CDMA) is in great demand. Remember that organizational structures will not based on what Sprint had, but what T-mobile currently has. The customers will be migrated to T-Mobile infrastructure just like Sprint did with APC and the network shut down.

I’d agree things are going to go from 0-60 very soon with people jumping ship. Duplicate positions dissolving - entire channels being eliminated on the sprint side. Lots of uncertainty right now they keep telling everyone they will know more in the coming weeks.
