Thread regarding Windstream Corp. layoffs

IT RIF coming

Time to reduce the IT numbers again. Let the Service desk and the hardware depot handle everything. I hope it works out!

Ha! So the slob in GA has taken over the fairy tale biz from SB - priceless!

At least this ' GA slob ' still has a job, can you sat the same ?

Will GS be held accountable for what went down in Twinsburg Oh on the 'peeps' last day? I heard that part of the reason SB was let go was that she allowed the 'peep' to load up NIB laptops and did nothing to stop him.

GS out of GA telling his people all is well.

RIF definitely happened. Anyone who's been there more than 5 years should keep a resume handy and jobs lineup ready to go. WS isn't known for loyalty to their employees.

What is the channel even going to sell? Resold UCaaS or SD-WAN? We already resell those services, we maintain servers and someone else manages the SW and back end.

That is a whole market that is going away with the CLEC business.

Word on the street is some channel folks are now exploring other opportunities. Heard about it third hand, can't verify the validity of it.

As is typical, Windstream leadership lacks the guts to make a statement about any RIF, much less specifics on numbers.

We are no longer a public company so I don't know if we are required to disclose a data breach or ransomware attack. I'm sure that will help with shopping the pieces of the company around. We are a Software Powerhouse not an INFOSEC Powerhouse!

funny ransomware was mentioned...TT put out a tweet on how WS can help protect your business from ransomware....I do know that WS was hacked, paid the random and had client info and employee info stolen....I know my info was stolen during the breach

Just noticed the CISO is gone. Fallout from the ransomware disaster?

It's a Thursday before a beginning pay period. It's going to happen based on the history here.

I suspect the BIG Breakup between ILEC and CLEC then the slashing can continue! Most likely going to happen in a few months.

WHAT? Where is that 'employee' that is told by their IT director/whatever out of Twinsburg that their jobs are 'safe'? They are so 'valuable' they can't be let go!

Must be near time for TT to book his trips to the Alps

That doesn’t sound like something a Software Powerhouse would do.
