Looks like there were some T-Mobile layoffs in Overland Park recently. I'm sure these were all legacy Sprint people who were kept around to clean up the CDMA network. Anyone have any details? Did they get the same severance package as before or was that changed?

Here, here TOTALLY AGREE. The notion, that TMO bought Sprint, selected the lead team (overwhelmingly TMO), stacked teams and anyone would whine that Sprint employees are somehow responsible for reality after the smoke clears is ridiculous. Man up and stop embarrassing yourselves.
It's a tough business. I think we all can agree on that. Whiny victim blaming by TMO employees (again, TMO bought Sprint) says so much. How does the saying go? Be careful what you ask for, you just might get it.
Bonus date, severance terms are what again? Take care!
Thank you! At least Sprint had a clear corporate message of “you’re worth what you make for us.” T-mobile tries and tries to sell this “we love you” attitude.
As someone who worked for sprint, t Mobile, and metro, I’m tired of t Mobile people blasting sprint employees. Your not that great. You had a nice run but that was because at the time leadership was creative. Nothing new now. Not seeing the subscriber growth you were supposed to explains why the stock went from 149 to 104. Get used to it, you are not adding anything new despite what the ceo has been saying. Be prepared to get laid off so they can show a better bottom line.
And no WARN act notice submitted. Meaning they're cherry picking people and locations to get rid of.
The large, mass layoff is coming, likely after the corporate earnings call in February.
Not just Sprint folks that were laid off. There were some legacy T-Mob people in TX, CA and Philly cut too. There is absolutely no transparency with this company. T-Mob lies to you every second of every day.
Everyone says legacy Sprint people are totally worthless. This is NOT true.
Their internal organs are worth a fortune on the black market.
