The largest company in the world to return back to the office and the only carrier in the cellular industry returning. T-Mobile is claiming an end to the pandemic, the virus is no longer a threat, you can't transmit it anymore or get sick if you are vaccinated (per management). They are rushing my entire site back starting next week. Be extremely mindful of how you handle this, I have good word from upper management that anyone who provides pushback to returning to work is going to be let go. Don't end up an unemployment statistic.

I hear you Atlanta. The Overland Park Campus is in Johnson County, recently bumped up to "High Community Risk". Return to work makes no sense, so you have to ask...why? Free food and pretend holiday parties be d*mned.
Atlanta office is empty every day. No one here gives a fu-k what Sievert says. We will come back to the office when we are comfortable with it, not when Sievert is comfortable with it.
There are better jobs and companies everywhere. You just have to go and get it. My only regret is that I didn’t work at my golf game more when I was there. It’s funny watching people kiss Jon freiers ess on Twitter. Like he is good or something. It’s fear. I got news for you, if you went to Hawaii for winning some sales achievement, you could still be laid off. They don’t care. They don’t even pretend to care. Look in the mirror. Your job is mindless. Your not doing anything new or different. You are just recycling sales and processes. Your back in Walmart. Wow. Brilliant. 2022 you will be out of walmart. 2023 back in walmart. Etc.
Covid delayed the layoff plan. Delta hosed the layoff plan reset. Data breach yet another unexpected side item of horrible press.
I agree with the original post in this thread. You have to ask WHY return to office and at the time of year when the virus IS getting worse? Any breakthrough case contracted at work? Good luck with that - there isn't even a plan in place for if (WHEN) there a hot spot in office, how to notify, track or advise employees. It doesn't make sense. Notice how quiet it got when that question was asked on all the Rah Rah Rah cult calls? It will happen, bank on it.
Layoff in a pandemic with everyone at home? Agree, they don't want the optics of that. Back to work then layoff? Blame economy, supply chain, one armed man, whatever. And also? With everyone at home, there is no way to monitor...moonlighting. Can you imagine how many people are working more than one job? Who would know? Make everyone come in office and interrupt that gravy train (online on company wifi, can't boot up any other laptop, at least a couple of days in the work week). Sounds crazy? Offshore resources have done it for YEARS.
Return to work, to be together "fam". Please. Companies losing employees at an unprecedented clip (remote work desired). And yet, mandatory return - that could ki-l you? Oh, ok. Take care.
This Vaccine stuff by the Execs is their way of not having to do a layoff. You don't get a vaccine, you're fired.
People already didn't work in the office before (because there was no real job to be done anyway) and were not even logging in during pandemic. So yeah, at least do one thing and get your tushy back in the office.
Enjoy a nice sandwich from QFC or the deli in NP2.
