Time Warner Inc. Layoffs

Topics regarding layoffs at Time Warner Inc.

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

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

Good read

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

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

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? —  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

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 

Layoffs are nothing new

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

You have to love the "exciting" camp when it comes to this deal. You really believe Randall is untested in keeping you around?

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

Get your resumes ready.

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

NY Times Layoffs

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.
