AT&T apparently has never heard the phrase, "a bird in hand is worth two in a bush". They abandon their customers in pursuit of new customers. Their acquisition cost for new customers in far greater than offering current customers more value. the... read more
Topics regarding layoffs at Time Warner Inc.
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. 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
Hundreds of pink slips are coming for "duplicative administrative functions" in AT&T's entertainment empire, and CEO John Stankey and TV chief Bob Greenblatt risk eroding "distinctive" individual brands like HBO and Turner in the process... read more
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
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
For those who were hoping it would take some time before layoffs started - boy were you wrong... "AT&T's WarnerMedia announces reorganization that WSJ reports could lead to significant layoffs"... read more
We know it will be bad, now would be good time to to know when it will start?
Welcome to AT&T! We will be adding you shortly to our list of quarterly surpluses and start adjusting your bonus and salary bands in the near future. Don't worry 10s of thousands of AT&T resources already deal with this you should be fine, we believe... read more
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?
Was laid off with about 250 others Christmas 2001. Big heavy dudes in suits and ties showed up and distributed colored badges to everyone. The color of the badge indicated employment status. Haven't had a steady job since then. Worked at electric... read more
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.
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
The office seems quiet but the message was clear. Support positions and administrative departments will get hit. Im wondering if a layoff can be announced to an individual on anyday.
We're all screwed. The customers of phones, internet connectivity, and cable TV are just plain screwed as well as the employees of both companies. The judge's ruling and final details are awfully suspicious, including the strongly worded threat to... read more
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 merger will be awful for Time Warner and its employees. Most of the expected layoffs will come from our side - and trust me when I tell you there'll be a lot of them. Not to mention that company culture will change for the worse sooner then you... read more
Never been theough a merge. Im hearing different things. If a layoff awaits, how soon can it start?
Today marks the end of Time warner Inc, in 3 years tome grom today, your company would look like DirecV, in shambles and Rio ed, history tends to repeat itself, :(
The more I scroll through it, the more I am dreading the possibility of the merger being approved.
Dear TWC folks -- get ready for some big changes once the deathstar takes over. As one of the few post-merger surviving Directv employees I can tell you that AT&T is a horribly run, heavy-handed, micro-managing, bureaucratic nightmare. Innovation... read more
It's funny how people get scared at the mention of word layoffs in relation to AT&T merger, when Time Warner's been laying off people every few months under the guise of reorganization for years now. This is nothing new, it's just not as well... read more
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
SORRY GUYS, IT LOOKS LIKE AT&T’s top executives are considering divesting some Time Warner assets — including news organization CNN and celebrity gossip site TMZ — after they merge.
Just like Bellsouth, DirecTV and the TW newcomers , they will face the harsh reality of working for this company, This is rarely good news for about 90% of the staff. Sure, management is fine. After all, they negotiated the deal. But whether you were... read more
I'm amazed how delusional some seem about this acquisition with terms like "exciting" I mean unless by exciting you mean how you will be in constant fear and stress of the enevitable Tuesday morning teleconference meeting announcing layoffs and... read more
If you haven't followed what is transpiring at AT&T and Directv since they married I would suggest catching up. Be warned do not keep your heads in the sand AT&T is among the most toxic places to work for and I guarantee you your future boss Randall... read more
HBO unit is going to cut about 7% of its 2400 staff over the next few weeks. Time Warner posted a loss of $16.03 billion...
I heard that up to 2000 people will be let go, let's wait and see, I am never surprised here @ Time Warner, anything can happen
Q1 of 2014 - almost certain layoffs of editorial staff here at NYT - you never know how things will be developed but there are so many signals pointing in this direction and I have to put it in the 'almost certain' category.
There is a lot of fear, lot of rumors - the word is that Time Inc. will be cutting hundreds of jobs in 2014
Greed will kills us - it's all about compensation for the folks who run the company. I see no TW passion anywhere.
Jan 28, 2013- The latest round of layoffs is expected to be announced this week. As many as 700 employees are likely to lose their jobs, more than the 600 that were cut during the publisher’s last major downsizing in 2008.
with the recently announced outsourcing deal to cap gemini there will be (or, should we say 'already took place') some layoffs in it (mis division) and finance. the overall goal is to keep key business folks aligned with cap but most of the it staff... read more
