Thread regarding West Corp. layoffs

July Layoffs come early

Layoffs that were anticipated next month comes in early and are happening since last evening . Some peers whom we consider as excellent/outstanding performers have been let go in the name of cutting cost or RIF or whatever you can call. The numbers are not clear but globally more than 100 impacted is what we are hearing.. Guess all this batch by batch RIF is to avoid unnecessary PR, wonder what is left to save their image now? Or who is left to save this ship? We see a very difficult road ahead without some of our key leaders and performers

You don't have to report the layoffs to the department of labor if you do them in small incremental batches.

I am curious if there are layoffs coming usually they can be found on the Nebraska Dept. of Labor's website under layoffs. Any idea why these layoffs are not being reported?

That what I don't get either. Why have someone else takeover their position after you lay them off?

The fact that this Leadership team would lay people off and send an email the same day annoucing new executive leadership tells you everything you need to know about them. No integrity, no character, and no heart.

We lost some very good people at Televox. I’m angry and pissed. We have always been a profitable division of West and we are just getting screwed over. Not only have we been getting screwed for years with no SIP because other divisions were lagging and the company was missing targets.

Now we lose great people for no damn good reason. This company is lost. There is zero direction and it’s obvious the executives have no clue what we do or what our products do or what our customers want. I’m convinced that this is some kind of tax scam or grand money laundering scheme. Notice they never said what they were doing with the corporate tax cut windfall they got this year.

They are literally sabotaging the company and not even trying to turn it around. We barely have the staff now to keep things running and in some cases don’t have enough because you let go or lost all the SME’s.

Customers should run away as fast as they can.

Which Dept in Omaha got hit worst ? Systems and platform ? Operations?

This is ironic for a buyer to sabotage the very company it bought

Our VP and Director got let go. This was very unexpected as they were the ones who were holding the fort in the Client Services organization. Wonder what idea Apollo even has..

Feels like the ship is being sabotaged by people who claim to be rescuing it when it had no trouble sailing in the first place.

I find it ironic one of the new buzz words for this company is "Trust", especially when you can't even trust anyone above the director level to communicate what's going on. Everything is real silent. If you trust the company at this point, I've got a plot of land to sell you.

Omaha lost several people from each team yesterday.

Apollo is gutting this company like a fish, the smart people are abandoning ship and looking elsewhere for work.
