Genious, AT&T to prioritized Streaming Service

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

Who could be affected the most?

Judging by they way AT&t performed their own layoffs there is little chance that they will announce what are they planning to achieve with this restructure or how many people are to be cut. Any rumors? What departments are they planning to trim the... —  read more

Nobody is safe

Why do people who have been with Time Warner the longest believe they are safe from layoffs? Does anybody really believe that company loyalty is a thing anymore? People will be laid off based primarily on how much they earn. End of story. Years in... —  read more

How long before it starts?

How long does it usually take after a merger for layoffs to start? Do we at least have a few months while the dust on the whole deal settles or will it start sooner than that? I've heard many horror stories since yesterday and I'm not sure anymore... —  read more 

This will not end well for us

They can't keep piling more work on us

Anybody else really worried about what the merger will bring for us if it goes through? We are overworked as it is. For years now, Time Warner has been refusing to back-fill any vacant positions, instead just piling the work on those of us who are... —  read more
