I'm not saying that there aren't any great ones, but they are definitely in the minority. I had a great manager, but he didn’t last long here. Instead, I now have a manager who probably couldn't get any important role in any other company. Why is... — read more
out of curiosity. Wireless, Ops, Business, any talk around any specific department for Q3?
Never seen so much change in our leadership. Sampath will be replacing Hans within one year. The 10 year decline on this company rests squarely with our leadership and the billions of dollars wasted with bad acquisitions. Yet, the employees end... — read more

Has anyone heard anything about a big contractor layoff happened in June 3rd?
While some departments are understaffed, the situation in others is totally different. Does leadership even know how to determine optimal staffing levels?
He was at the Verizon New York City store earlier today-on his Instagram. It would be nice if there were town halls focused on direction and strategy versus a cheerleading event. There are serious issues here and the competition is eating our... — read more
