Life after Verizon

After almost 20 years, I accepted the VSP. Didn’t seriously start looking for another job until about 3 weeks ago. I landed a position making almost 40k more a year. Keep your head up. There is life after Verizon!

Dec VSP 3% profit sharing

Anyone know when we will get that deposited in our 401k and how much it will be?

No more real work until the STI is announced. Then work only in direct proportion to the percentage. Maybe some unpaid OT if it's more than 100. Maybe more coming in late and leaving early if it's not.

Anyone know what the LEAN portion of FAST/LEAN stands for. It has yet to be explained.

Layoffs are immoral.

To deprive someone of a wage not because he is failing to earn it or because you can no longer afford to pay it but because you have decided that you would prefer not to pay him is robbery. The fact that it has been a widely accepted and almost... read more
