"Customers no longer speak to a windstream employee under any circumstance. "

"Customers no longer speak to a windstream employee under any circumstance. Your sales rep is a channel partner, outsourced. Project managers at turnup are overseas, outsourced. Customer service is overseas, outsourced. Repair is overseas, outsourced. Field tech that comes to your site, many are outsourced to a 3rd party company. We do not screen or dr-g test the people we send to your home or business. NOCs that monitor the network is now 80% outsourced, projected to be 100% outsourced in the next 18–24 months. The equipment is old and not maintained. "

I assume/hope this is on the CLEC side, not the ILEC side.

Which of this stuff is this true of the ILEC business?

Windstream has been having regular layoffs in scheduled intervals for nearly a decade. How could anyone continue to work there and live with that stress? Its incredible what they put their employees thru. And provide the worst health benefits possible, thats the kicker

Whattt? Where is the kool–aid person out of Twinsburg that can 'verify' they will still have their IT jobs????
Funny, she got RIF'd way back, now it's all GS. Add value, your are here to make a difference, not a paycheck. All moves are lateral moves. Blah, blah, blah. work harder, get your shots, you won't care after that.

They are moving towards outsourcing all NOCs. Not many left. IP NOC slated last.

So all of Power and environmental got hit, we're no longer that big but that's still ten staff. TNOC Electrical was eliminated too, though some of that staff got rolled into Optical.

I can assume the rest of TNOC will get the same fate eventually. It appears they are moving to fully outsource their staff and retain managers to oversee those outsourcers.

2 out of the dwindling number of IT support folks, with 1000 construction jobs coming in and 200 more field techs (per TT). Who will fix all the software powerhouse problems? What about the aging hardware?
