Purely out of curiosity, I am interested in what you think about how the company could deliver significant growth?
Hans, your stay at Verizon is both unwelcome and undignified. You have now damaged your second corporation, impacting thousands of lives on two different sides of the world. Maybe you should consider permanent, corporate retirement. You must have... — read more
If it's the last thing we ever do!
We were number one for years. Now we're not, besides cutting employees, what else can we do to get back to number one? I don't think Hans is capable of getting us back to number one.
How many headcount do we need to reduce to be competitive? I say 30K, but it could be more. I don't see Hans offering any incentives to leave. Will these reductions be layoffs? The whole telecom industry is reeling now, layoffs everywhere we look... — read more
Want to know why Verizon Stock is in the tank.. gutter...? Well our director ask everyone to put their preferred pronoun in their email signature. I spoke up and said, I don't have a preferred pronoun. I wish to be called "Monsieur Smith" as I am... — read more
Found this link today https://oathbrands.tumblr.com/ Has some great Oath content that makes me almost cry when I think of what could have been had Oath succeeded. Sad.
Here are the facts: Key staff leaving the company especially in GNT, at the leadership level, going to competitors and suppliers. Dir and ED rotations happening with the assumption that a new person in an old job provides growth (wrong!) HR span and... — read more
I think people who have some expectations from this company are fooling themselves, because the leadership only manages the decline. Do they have any plans for future growth? I wouldn't say that they have any concrete plans, nor that they have a... — read more
The company is on a nose dive, but no worries we can now as of this week have our preferred pronoun on our badge. Yay! 🙄
Another 3/4 point interest rate hike today. I will dread looking at the next lump sum amount after the latest hike is reflected. Probably down 250k from height of 0% rates a couple of years ago. YIKES!
The company is tanking cause everyone is relaxing and could care less about the company cause there working from home. This never happened when people were in the office. Cancel work from home and bring everyone back to the office , the way it... — read more
I absolutely do not agree with any decision of this leadership. Have you ever worked in a company with worse leadership? In fact, they should not even be called "leaders", because they are not.
What happens to tier 2 tech support?
Can you believe it? Where is Hans? What's next, the twenties? This is really making me hate my life. I have lost big time in my 401K. How about you?
So now we have yet another cellular company (Total by Verizon). Verizon Wireless, Tracfone, Visible and now Total? The wasteful ideas being implemented just continue on and on.
Hans did it again today. 5G may be 5 buck stock soon.

Batten down the personal finances, theres definitely a RIF coming in 4Q. Confirmed.
While Verizon is still a powerhouse in the communications space, they went off-track years ago and have been struggling for meaningful recovery, innovation and long-term growth ever since. Very good article... — read more
Was the titles declared surplus completely voluntary or is a force adjustment coming? For the recent sept 25 deadline.

SamHam says "Tapping into purpose with the focus on how we will affect others, as an organization or an individual, is one of the most important ways to have meaningful impact while also achieving success.

Definitely nothing to laugh about
Nothing concrete at this point, I just have that uneasy feeling that our results are not going to measure up. Hans and his knuckledraggers keep using the same playbook and failing over and over again. Not sure what it will take to get Hans head... — read more
T-MOBILE has VSP for certain departments. 26 weeks pay plus two month transition period paid. Prorated bonus, stock incentive paid out and PTO paid out.
It's a bad bad omen

Haven’t heard a peep from my Orgs upper leadership in months…something is brewing
I vote we rename "Up to Speed" to "Up to Swede". Because your success is really dwarfed by what strategic decisions the Swede makes.
No announcement could make me happier.
Verizon (NYSE:VZ) shares dipped by 1% just after midday Wednesday as Chief Executive Hans Vestberg told an investor conference that the company is expecting consumer wireless subscribers to drop in the third quarter. Speaking at Goldman Sachs'... — read more
Any chance he may announce his exit from Vz?
I doubt that anyone tries to do more than the bare minimum required, given that it is not valued at all here. Or perhaps there are still some naive people who give much more of themselves than the company gives them in return?
Wow, it keeps going from bad to worse. Off $1.03 today, it just makes me want to pu-e. Thanks Hans!
