Thread regarding Verizon Communications Inc. layoffs

Superbowl / Beyonce

According to rumors online, Verizon paid Beyonce $30 million for a 45 second Super Bowl ad... meanwhile we have RIFs every other month and constant budget cuts. Our leadership disgusts me more and more every single day.

Whatever the dollar amount is it’s part of the marketing budget every year for Super Bowl. I’d rather it be put towards better promos vs further mis management of Verizon. But what do I know.. it’s just a fire drill every 5 mins at work cause we are not hitting our kpis..

I wouldn’t be surprised if it increased traffic to the site and maybe a little to stores but sticker shock will not lead to many sales. They will then blame retail workers for not closing.

It really just seems like someone got played to pay her a ton of $$ to announce her new country album.

Yeah exactly those $30 million are not even gona get us 1 million customers. They rather cut their own employees. Keep spending and then very qtr end asking how can we cut back that will instantly give us savings. Take a salary cut, if the company is suffering take a cut. You have laid off enough ppl now. It's time to cut the top management now.

most everyone on my team call last week was really excited. Of course I find they are excited by everything and anything leadership does and says so not sure if it was real feelings or koolaid.

Beyonce is who old people think young buyers like. They are so out of touch. She hasn't been relevant in a decade and since Jay Z little outburst at the Grammys, no one wants to hear about her.

Meanwhile here in the South our Director is deciding who should drive corporate vehicles....they have a few of them "hiding" right here at Hidden Ridge - I guess we have more money than they are telling us about... why don't all senior managers and senior analysts get vehicles...
