Thread regarding AT&T layoffs

9 replies (most recent on top)

It will undoubtedly take a while for the dust to settle in all business segments; but it will eventually. Unfortunately, GBS typically has the most experienced, seasoned business professionals…many of which were affected by the healthcare subsidy change. If you were around when BellSouth was enveloped, or that shifting of accounts during the SBC/ATT acquisition; you’ll remember how uncertain and chaotic that period was even for seasoned sales teams. I say this with experience….if you can; hang in there—things will mellow out.

GBS is Global Business Services and one of the segments that is struggling and also lost many salespeople due to retirement in order not to lose retiree health benefit subsidies. Most of Business is being reorganized for the same reason. I have heard that already folks are worried about not hitting the 2022 quotas.

GBS is the Global Broadband Service. They run the undersea lines and are ATT's only business unit that runs its own submarines. There's a swim test you have to complete if you get it for a CP assignment.

Really? You’ve come to the wrong ‘board’ asking a question that does not pertain to anything other than sneers, hateful comments, and disdain for any and everything related to ATT. And certainly the vast majority of people posting here have never worked in any other position other than pulling wires, cables, climbing poles. What do they know about the business organizations other than what the crack pot, completely ignorant statements that are routinely posted here? It’s laughable that most of them think there are only two groups of people employed by ATT, those like themselves and people who work in call centers or retail stores. This type of thinking would be funny, if it wasn’t so pathetic. But do…..Read on for your entertainment but don’t say you were not warned.
