You know, people who know how to do their jobs instead of those who got where they are because they know the right person? The culture of nepotism at Verizon is completely out of control, and the productivity is suffering for it (not to mention... read more
Topics regarding layoffs at Verizon Communications Inc.

A word of caution to the people left on the boat. Do not allow the people who are jumping on the life boats make you bitter or second guess your decisions. I've seen teammates get scared away and find new jobs in other companies or jobs. Some of the... read more

Just learn and get back to your work .don't think too much..if some thing happens it happens in November and it will be in a big time ..so relax for few months rather than worrying..get geared up with stuff meanwhile.
I heard HR say repeatedly that claims would be denied... wondering if they are following through with that, or if any appeals were successful.
Does a promotion mean safety from layoffs? At least for a while?
No more f***ing IT managers. Flat structure is started ..
Left the company 3 weeks ago voluntarily (not via VSP). How long does it take for Verizon to sent a paycheck for my unused vacation days?
I see these postings from kickoff 2.0. What a slap in the some of the great employees that have been RIF. Why is all this money being waisted in training and the company continues to layoff people?
I don’t hear many impressions coming from the company leadership regarding their satisfaction with the Infosys deal? Obviously, they knew from the start it’s a cheaper option, we all know that, but are they satisfied with the quality of work and the... read more
Q4..you can feel the heat.. people who leave are clever.people who stay are Freshers. Consolidate and reduce us the new mantra and Indian IT work force is mapped with global band...so how much work force is required and then they gonna shake ..be... read more
What happens if 5G doesn't end up bringing in the type of revenue VZ is expecting? For that to happen, people would have to leave their existing providers in record numbers. Existing providers already offer great speeds at a decent price. Also, with... read more
A lot of people at my location are leaving for jobs at other companies. Aside from the fact that the rate of the turnover is a little surprising to me, I keep on wondering was that part of the plan of the leadership or is that something that was... read more
It's so expensive for $12,471 each person. Is there anyone going to use it instead of buying from the health insurance marketplace?
Two older folks were let go from my group. Good achievers and good people. That manner of sneaky layoffs in smaller portion disgusts me even more that organized waves. Sad to look at the situation where once a good company has become a machine for... read more
Is the union a - benefit - support - do they assist - available ? or: Is the union - inoperative - unproductive - ineffective - idle ?
VSPers from 3/22, did everyone get their Severance today? My bank account was singing this morning. $$$$$$$$
Our short sighted and incompetent leaders have given up on resolving the security issues and ultimately have ordered Verizon Laptops for INFY new hires. The decisions to replace fulltime people with inexperienced INFY people were made for that short... read more
Two people got cut from my team yesterday morning. They were solid performers and in their mid thirties. Wondering whether this was isolated ore are there more layoffs in smaller portions in other parts of the company?
Osmose now doing all pole inspections. Asurion handling all 5G home installations. And the mighty CWA says, thanks for the money you dues paying CHUMPS!
Nah just kidding I knew you all got triggered.....I think there is room for all qualified people
Applied for, on two separate occasions, positions with a local company (a regulated entity). Despite multiple degrees, and skill sets commensurate with both postings, I heard crickets (I'm over 50). A relative applied to this same company (an IT... read more
This is from last month, but it's something everybody should read. If it was already posted, I apologize. It's not just about Verizon but the entire industry - and it foresees plenty more layoffs in the future... read more
Hearing rumors of a eisp end of May, off payroll by July. Anyone else hear something?
Called payroll asking for date of lump sum deposit...said not the 12th...19th
My take is that they will want to make more reductions in workforce after the revenue from 5G starts pouring in. Even though that won’t happen anytime soon think that all of us need to get ready for such a scenario. Could we see a new buyout in that... read more
Looks like VZW has begun consolidating satellite locations to regional office locations, for Network Assurance/ RF Engineering.
Verizon India has had poor performance for 4 straight quarters. Most jobs will be picked up by the Philippines and Mexico, with some returning to the US.
"If you are not behind 2.0, why are you here?" Heard during multiple kickoffs this year.
Verizon has been encouraging employees on their work life balance. In IT the most efficient and the correct way to achieve that is to quit. No one is paid enough to deal with ignorant third world boss who wants to run his team like a third world... read more
Any one can provide GTS leadership updates..
Even interviews are eluding me - I'm yet to get a call. Is this just the problem of my relatively small job market or is it this bad for fifty-somethings everywhere?
