Thread regarding Williams Cos. layoffs

IT Mgmt

Wonder if any IT Management from Salt Lake City will be laid off? Why is it this particular location slip slides away - compared to other locations. Especially when there are 3 or more “managers” for the exact same duties? I have heard them openly bragging about “being special”.

The employee monitoring software can be seen by control/alt/delete, then view running processes.

I came to Williams with some very unique skills that I wasn't able to utilize in my first position. When a job came open where I could utilize these skills, I expressed interest. The attacks on me personally hit hard as they put another in that job with no background, yet gave her all the training I already had with some years experience. Eventually, I was laid off.
Politics are not good, but I miss many co-workers.

You are toast if HR asks to speak with you about witnessing your boss doing something inappropriate. HR will give all of your statement to your boss.

If you are a witness to s-xual harassment in IT, you will be let go for other reasons even though your information had low value.

Even before covid, much more running to the boss to tattle on a co-worker. IT really not a true team environment.

IT people need to close the video meeting, before bashing people to make themselves look good. Just sayin

Several in IT talking behind other's back on how bad a job others are doing to prop themselves up. Wonder if the upper people know this or are just plain stupid to this behavior?

Our group thought IT had been off and running on their portion of our authorized project. However, they would come to meetings and tell us falsely that our "Requirements had changed" and we asked for proof each time in an email, but nothing but crickets. They even reported this up to CIO on their project status. They were not doing anything and wouldn't give us a status so we could engage.

Need a new CIO.

We had a co-worker that was not sharing his documents with the group. When he was being let go, our Manager asked that he be able to review documents on that computer with the appropriate HR person or whoever else appropriate so our department could get what they needed. He didn't want to see personal information. IT ignored the request and cleaned the hard drive.

Tulsa IT Leadership have talked openly about helping get the other IT groups on track. Very arrogant. They are close to the CIO.

IT Destroyed many of our electronic documents and were sending notifications they were going to do this to someone that was no longer with the company. When it was escalated, they said they got no response! They could not tell us why they didn't send it to someone still there since we didn't know about this process. Thank goodness for thumbdrives.
These clowns are still at the company. Good job CIO!

IT has many good people, however some make it entirely too difficult to adhere to good IT Standards instead of helping the Business through times they ask for help. Those few are very political and that is why they are still there. It is better to not ask for help from IT if you don't need it, otherwise they will target initiatives to make them fail. PD is a political success story!

Correct, the IM folks work for IM, not the business. The goals are not aligned.

I had an IT Advocate to help our group with our IT problems and help us get more out of our systems. He was GREAT at helping us. We respected when he told us NO given he had a track record of thinking how to get us to what we needed. He was laid off for not getting along with IT. We were reminded later, he worked for IT, not the Business. Thank you Mr PD for putting your career over helping our IT Advocate help the Revenue Producers!

Tulsa IT show boating their value. Wish they would give me what I asked for when a problem. Closing tickets before problem fixed, tell me to open a new one. Then I understand they are bragging on their number of tickets - fuzzy math.

Too much campaigning and not enough work!
