Thread regarding Windstream Corp. layoffs

Management to worker balance

Nothing changes, need to get this project completed ASAP but every meeting has two times the number of managers on the call as opposed to those actually performing work. And why are the managers allowed to be less educated than the engineers? The Engineers have 4 year degrees while the managers are lucky to have an associate's degree. Another year of dragging a-s to compensate for this garbage

LoL. You all are funny. GED is king at WIN. It is like PHD of Engineers. You talk like Windstream Engineers have college degrees.

And this is what happens when you layoff the expensive good talent. Too many good employees were let go. The directors and EO haven't figured out who actually gets the work done and who was just taking credit.
Instead of making the product and culture better, WS just lays off the dissenters of poor decisions.
This is why I just stay quiet and don't do my job. At this point if you figure out I barely work - you will also reveal that you had no clue for 2 years now. Whats sad is I still out perform my coworkers. crazy place.

Give it rest engineers. You're all too incompetent to come up with a plan that works and doesn't require 10 changes along the way and 5 more when on site. It's okay, we all know because we live it every day.

Give it a rest Techs - there is a reason we send so many contractors out to do what we would expect FOPs to perform. Because you cannot do the work plain and simple. Granted there are also 'leaders' in engineering that admittedly avoid completing all the tasks to keep the databases updated. Doing so they get get promoted for slopping things out because that is what BB wants.

There are no standards for Engineering, no standards on installation, and no standards in inventory management.

Everyone has a idea and puts it to use and everyone is given duct tape and everyone utilizes it.

Top Heavy yes but past couple RIFs have hit management finally. Still top heavy but also some deadwood laying around with the workerbees for sure.

If you really want to drag a project out, install it the way it is engineered and complete. They will have to conference in half the company to figure out how to fix it, when it gets hot.

Engineers who are too lazy to look up info in NGMSS or simply can't read/comprehend what it says so they "dispatch a tech". They sit behind a keyboard pretending they know it all and refuse to listen to tech standing in front it. As for OTDR issues, I'm not surprised since the training includes being handed an OTDR and being told "here you go".

Right like the techs that don't know to scope fibers, use a clamp on power meter, can't shoot fibers with an OTDR correctly. I have to redispatch two techs just today to try and do it right for the third time - but nice try

Yeah, and all of those 4 Year degrees the engineers have still don't help them know their bu-t from a ho-e in the ground so they dispatch a tech on EVERYTHING so the tech can tell them how to do their job.

"The decision has been made" Heard that so many times, no discussions, just get it done. "The Engineers have 4 year degrees while the managers are lucky to have an associate's degree." (Liked)
