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

Topics regarding layoffs at Time Warner Inc.
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.
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?
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
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
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.
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
Never been theough a merge. Im hearing different things. If a layoff awaits, how soon can it start?
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
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
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
The more I scroll through it, the more I am dreading the possibility of the merger being approved.
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, :(
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
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...
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
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
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.
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.
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
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.
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
