Topics regarding layoffs at Warner Bros. Discovery, Inc.

Let's merge!

Let's go ahead and merge with Universal. This media industry is ripe for consolidation. We only need three major players in media, it's as simple as that. If no consolidation occurs, there will be many media company bankruptcies in the near term.

Zas got hoodwinked!

Yes, that's right. Stankey knew early on the Warner Media was a big mistake. He needed to dump Warner Media without delay. Stankey convinced Zas that Warner would be a good fit for Discovery. Sad sealed it hook, line, and sinker. Share price dropped... —  read more 

WBD shares at $13.15

Come on Zas, when are you gonna do something about the share price? We are sick of it, I should have sold off all my shares when at&t unloaded this mess on you. This company is a dumpster fire.

Warner Bros. Discovery insiders are bracing for more layoffs in the days ahead as the company looks to cut global ad sales force

Warner Bros. Discovery insiders are bracing for layoffs starting as soon as next week. The cuts are expected to hit ad sales teams, the latst in a series of rolling layoffs throughout the year. CEO David Zaslav is under pressure to wring $3... —  read more 

This is getting unbearable

If I don't get a better offer soon, I don't know how longer I can endure this much pressure doing a triple workload. They are literally testing our limits. Perhaps their goal is to have as many people as possible leave voluntarily?

Penny stock

WBD is well on its way to becoming a penny stock. I think Zas is in way over his head. He started out by paying way too much to at&t for the WM acquisition.

It's about to start

Laid Off

This place has class. I was laid off during Paternity leave. My job went to someone at Xandr who then subsequently was pushed out with the Microsoft sale. Makes tons of sense. Xandr to Turner and then Direct tv. It’s too bad I didn’t have a golden... —  read more 

We've lost a lot of employees

I know stuff like this happens with any merger but I'm starting to worry if I'll be able to do my job properly if they decide to cut even more. I already have to do two jobs (as do my coworkers) for the price of one since there's nobody else to do it... —  read more

I'm leaving

This place has turned into a joke ever since it was first announced that AT&T was planning to buy us. Nobody takes us seriously anymore. I want to be gone before this latest merger/spinoff/whatever-it-is happens and having worked here becomes a... —  read more 

AT&T Outsources more and more...

So the not so brilliant decision to acquire DTV was costly. But arrogant Randall went after T-Mobil and failed. The Board must be asleep or they are getting rich and don’t care? So they approve Time Warner media acquisition. Costly? Well let’s get... —  read more

When will we know?

The wait is becoming unbearable - we know layoffs are coming, we know thousands of people will be affected, so please get it over with as soon as possible! Honestly, the anticipation and stressing are worse than finding out I need to look for a new... —  read more 

John Stankey does not motivate, nor does he have any ideas that will make us successful in the new media environment

John Stankey does not motivate, nor does he have any ideas that will make us successful in the new media environment. He is riding this wave from his telco days thinking that TWM will be managed like he wished the telco could. Guess what mi amigo... —  read more

Get Ready

Sorry, Warner, but as former DIRECTV, I feel for you all. AT&T insists on forcing their dysfunctional culture and processes on you despite proven success with your own. Not to worry, after a few years they will come back around to it and then act... —  read more

Time Warner inc

Not fair that our org has to make up for AT&T's Total financial dysfuncion, are we supposed to makeup for the continued shrinking segments revenues? How about hiring competent professionals in network, wireless, and content?

Got that dreadful call.

Got the call in the morning and was told I will be let go. It is kinda sad but not surprised its been a long year waiting to hear the news. But deep down I knew I was on the chomping block. But from what I heard I am part of a huge layoffs going on.
