Thoughts ? It will likely expidite the rollout of EISP offers. Sounds like good timing for many.
Topics regarding layoffs at Verizon Communications Inc.
Are they going to shed the fios once they get 5gheee rolling,if so that would take years
Altice is coming to gobble up wireline with a massive bond sale to finance the purchase of the area's assets. They are also going to find a way to create a monopoly through large outlays of cash for lobbying. It is only a matter of time. They... — read more
Has anyone noticed the falling gatt rate. Lump is 125k more with this rate vs VSP.
September end, Management will be told and give further directions. Hearing about business 4.0 at the top and the "need" to automate to innovate. All the best guys
I’ve heard VZ is to buy back FT WV at a big discount. Don’t get me wrong....I have no idea why on earth VZ would wantvto do that....it’s just one of the rumors I’ve heard.
Does anyone have any real info not just rumors
I know that nobody actually knows the numbers, but it could be interesting to know what people think.
For everyone thats getting let go, make sure you absolutely DESTROY these yahoos on Glassdoor. Dont let someone new suffer your fate. ZERO the CEO ratings.
Verizon announced late last month that it was disbanding their local news network entirely laying off nearly 200. A move that baffled most as network was formed to compete with cable giant and number 1 competitor Cablevision's News Channel 12 in the... — read more
I find it a little odd that nobody is reporting layoffs. Can it really be that there aren’t any at this moment?
Who here can remember a year (or even a month) in the past decade Verizon was not having some kind of reorganization? Small reorgs, major reorgs, vertical reshuffling, horizontal reshuffling, merging, divesting...you name it, we've done it. But... — read more
What’s up with that ? There has to be more to that than just using their news stations . Goodbye fios news and probably goodbye to some other things
The i-got-no pula survey is back for another quarter. Only 5 questions and no open ended ones. Talk about a waste of time and effort.
I heard the company is looking to make a really sweet offer to craft. Also heard from a credible source the union is fighting it tooth and nail because they don't want to lose the dues units. If the Union gets its way like it did a few years ago the... — read more
How likely is it for another VSP to be offered in 2020? Thoughts?
Well we are six months in the new world of 2.0. For those who stayed, how’s it going? At first, it was a scramble to “figure out” the new roles in April. And then the floodgates opened. I’ve never been busier since the end of April and everyone... — read more
At my garage there is no work other then the flagging/2nd man division, they seem to be busy all the time chasing car bumpers. What is going on, and how long can this keep up before something gives? Buyout? Layoffs? Any word.
I don't mean that literally. Layoffs will always be a threat. My question is when will the company have the form that the leadership plans it to have, and where there will bee no fear of mass restructuring?
I've been stuck at my position when I should have moved up a while ago because my manager doesn't want to lose me - he even let it slip once (not in so many words, but that was the gist.) I thought about going over his head, but that could easily... — read more
As I find myself working every day this Labor Day weekend, I think back to last year when I had 3+ days off working at Vz. But, hey, i get paid more at my current job, right? More money may not be the answer if it tilts your life to no time... — read more
Seriously folks, If you want a company to prosper there's been enough research done that the employees should be happy, not overworked, should not be competing against each other or put in a ring match and should be cared and feel a part of the... — read more
It took me forever to make the decision to start looking for a new job. Kept going back and forth, back and forth on it for a long time. Finally, I took out layoffs out of my considerations. I asked myself, if we still had job security, would I be... — read more

How likely is for something like that to occur in the near future?
VZ is hiring back folks that were sold to INFY in this great "profit making" deal. They have already hired couple folks back to Finance IT as they have figured out that the new 2.0 leaders mostly qualified for the reasons of Nepotism and friendships... — read more
Our fios build here in upstate NY is basically 99% done I’d say....we are saturating this area and have been force migrating many from copper to Fios to keep us busy....they are sending temps to line school so I don’t see anybody getting laid... — read more
Quick question... I am 45years old with 15 years of service as a service field technician in Maryland, do you think Verizon will ever attempt to freeze the pension during contract negotiations? After reading that some of the pensions range from... — read more
If there are any of these people on this board, I would appreciate if they posted how has life been for them after VZ.
Gatt× age× service÷mortality....what is the formula?? Does anybody know
