It was good for me here until I had to start doing the job of people who left and were not replaced. After seeing that the situation was not changing, I sent out a few applications and got a new job in record time. I'm here for a few more days. Now it is even less clear to me why those who have a lot of complaints do nothing to change their situation.

I did the same thing as the author of this post. For those who can’t get a new job offer, invest in a resume writer, consider a social media makeover and maybe hire an image consultant. None of these three things are prohibitively expensive.
Lots of good folks are using outdated resumes and ineffective application techniques because they have not looked for a job in decades.
If you are struggling to find other employment in this once-in-a-generation, worker-friendly job market, the biggest hurdle is you and your presentation. This is easily fixed with help. Good luck!
Looks like the herd culling date is February 21.
Bonus payout is Feb 18 and next RSU vest is Feb 25. Not sure I can make it to the next ESPP buy but the last one was a bust anyway.
rest and vest.....I hope you locked in profits because the marketing going down like T-Mobiles subs
I hope all you sad people leave soon!
The path to success at TMO....rest and vest!
Do what I'm doing. Wait until bonus and and restricted shares pay out at the end of February, and ESPP turns into shares at the end of March, which you then immediately sell for a 15% profit. Then you have a nice sum of money you can sit on pending the layoff. And Then when the layoff comes you get your package. That makes it much easier to leave the he-l ho-e of Seattle and move somewhere else in the United States where it costs about 30 to 40% less to live.
And if you're not laid off just continue to do as little as possible for the money they pay you. There's no incentive to do anything anymore for this company.
After playing janitor to the Philipines for a year straight, covering up for there lies, all of the lines and features they added "by accident" for a bonus, I finally quit. I feel massively relieved.
interesting you should say that....I've been getting cold shoulder looking for new job also. Maybe the job market is not as hot as the news would have you believe. Or possibly coming from here is toxic and nobody wants to bring that into their business
Been applying left and right since July. Cold out there.
The same people here posting over and over about how they're leaving and are still here. S hit or get off the pot.
To the author, thank you for posting! I did the same.
So close to bonus payout, then PTO burn. I expect, many people will leave early Spring.
Oh bro, I just cashed in some of that “supplemental PTO” (not that it even matters because we have no real means to log time anymore) to spend a whole week to do nothing but look for jobs.
