Thread regarding Frontier Communications Corp. layoffs

I can't say that Frontier overloads people

  • Why?
  • Because while some are really overwhelmed and on the verge of burnout, others barely do anything, have no stress and are even more valued here.

So it is not true that Frontier overloads employees, but only individual employees who have always been hard workers. The question is why is that so? Why are some overwhelmed while others are spared? Does Frontier need to distribute work better and more efficiently? What message does that send to their best employees?

The harder you work, the more is expected of you. The more jobs you complete, the more management sees you are the "go to" guy when jobs drop in. Dispatch will see that you get more done and start loading you with more jobs. Your productivity will put a target on your own back when it comes to workload.

The moral of this story is that you are creating your own problem. Slow the he-l down and your life will get a lot easier. Work at 50%, 100% of the time. You will be viewed as a stable , dependable employee and the work will be distributed more fairly. If your workgroup falls behind for long enough, maybe you will get lucky enough for FTR to hire some newbie that will overachieve and come to this site with the same complaint that you have.

Just sit back, take a deep breath, and kick the gear back a notch or two. Don't be a slave to this company that doesn't give two sh--s about you. You get paid by the hour, not the job.

Having recently joined a company with a very strong 'old guard' I can tell you that those types often create their own nightmares. Overworked, burning out, the whole nine yards. Meantime, people who are perfectly capable of doing the work are neither shown nor allowed to do any of it. They don't have time to show the new folks... they're just too busy. And of course nothing is documented 100%, if at all, because they know how to do it all, so why would they?

The sad part is, as more and more moves to the cloud, those guys, who should be grasping the new opportunities and moving forward, and letting the newer folks put in some time learning the 'legacy' environment... they end up being stuck on the legacy side themselves, because they can't or won't take time out to learn the new things. It's a pretty vicious cycle.
