Thread regarding Verizon Communications Inc. layoffs

I wonder how long it takes to recover

It makes me happy when I get contacted by some former colleagues who are realistically in much better companies now. I can’t help but envy some of them because they are finished with this place.
Yet, some of them, months after they left, still talk more about how they were here than how they are now in their new companies.
This surprises me again and again because I think I will forget that I ever worked here after I get a better offer and leave this pace. Is it possible that people need so much time to finally get some relief from this company?

It all depends on what group your in. I’ve been in groups that truly were fantastic, traveled the world, and met great people. But I’ve also been in groups that I dreaded. Micro managers with zero vision. Unfortunately I can’t speak for everyone but I am in the latter presently. :(

OP- ever heard of PTSD? That’s why they still talk about it.

Yeah OP well it’s traumatic getting passed over while they promote some nepotistic do-nothing, it takes a while to get it out of your system so let the former employee rant all they want

Work, whether it be at Verizon or elsewhere, is a large part of our lives. You make long lasting memories there and, if you’re lucky, good friends. To think that the day that you walk out of a place all that goes away, just shows that you’re posting bs just to post it that you’re a very sad individual.

When I left, as a Union member, I wasn’t a fan of my job or the direction the company was going in. But what working at Verizon gave me was the time and financial means to grow a side business into a successful company.

But guess what… years removed, I still get a smile after meeting a former coworker for
lunch or getting a text letting me know about one of their kids successes. Heck, here I am checking the layoff board to see if one of my former coworkers might be getting their package that they have wanted and that I want for them.

Instead of posting on this board and getting yourself worked up, take the time to reflect on what working for Vz has done for you. If it has truly ruined your life, take the time to apply for another job that will make you happy.

My last day was Thursday involuntary/voluntary retirement. I know that I put a lot more money in the pocket of management than they gave me. No more midnight proposal meetings, being told that automation will replace you every week, only to be asked to rescue projects at the last minute because automation meant automatically failing.

I will never forget how working for Verizon Wireless made me a multi millionaire. Even after I leave I will take my wealth with me and will never forget where it came from.
