Thread regarding Frontier Communications Corp. layoffs

Frontier will declare bankruptcy

As a former employee, I predict that Frontier will crash and burn and inevitably declare bankruptcy. I saw the company lay off huge numbers of good, qualified, hard-to-find employees that they had invested significant training in, just to bolster the company's bottom line. These weren't phone call takers and janitors - they were engineers, programmers, and managers. These kinds of qualified people don't grow on trees.

Frontier leadership would rather fire huge masses of employees in the hopes of somehow finding profitability rather than get rid of nearsighted leadership that doesn't have a clue on how to keep this company afloat. In the last four years Frontier stock lost 80% of its value, and thousands of employees have either been laid off or quit for more stable jobs. By clutching legacy landline telephone services and cable TV, Frontier is dead-set on going down with the ship while wireless and Internet television services continue to grow nationwide like an adolescent on steroids.

The smartest thing that Frontier shareholders and the board could do at this point would be to fire CEO Dan McCarthy and his lackey, CTO Steve Gable.

Current employee and i concur with what the guy said about verizon cutting management. My first 10 years as a copper tech i also acquired a bachelor in business which cost verizon aprox $70k after 4 years. What fool would pass on that right, well my plan was to get in management and move up but during my last months they cut management staff, benefits went down, they had the same tuition assistance program 100% drop to $5k year. Pensions gone, i mean horrible situation. I know theres more but you get the point, so here i am today, 20 years as a tech. 4th gen company man and i get to experience the final generation. Then who was the frontier id–t who agreed to buy verizon at such an outragious pricetag. This id–t is who k–led all our future. He paid twice what its worth, based on revenue the company generated years earlier and didnt even think to check the copper quality placed in the 50s and 60s. Copper does breakdown with decades of weather, techs and squirrels. I mean trees have grown destorying property leads, that were repaired " temporarily". All the bb holes from people shooting rodents, birds etc, are rusting through cable runs and well guess what. Swapping out a 300 pair property lead is quite expensive and yet some big wig frontir exec says sure, ill buy Verizon for $13 billion or whatever it was.. Hell of a deal, its like you buying a extremely used car at brand new prices and not even check to see if it starts.. Myself and countless others will lose everything. Who hires tired and mentally and physically worn out 50 plus year olds at $40 hour ? I wouldnt

Managers and engineers are the most incompetent people in the business. A big time engineering manager in WV has a sociology degree and started out as an HR helper. Frontier is stuck on stupid.

I wonder who that could be???

The problem came when VZ first started cutting management benefits, including the pension. At this point, anyone with experience (say 15-20 years) stands to lose hundreds of thousands in their pension alone by taking a management job. No one has incentive to move up, you'd be stupid to want to.
