Seems to me it’s been quiet for some time now. I find it hard to believe that we could reach the end of the year without any reorgs at the company, even though I really hope that I’m mistaking. Has anyone heard anything about any further reorgs or... — read more

VSP over and done with. Union EISP next??
You know the company is desperate when they use Sean Menendez and 2 teenage girls to advertise. bwhahahahaha what a joke!
Any position that could be outsourced, will be outsourced. Why do people harbor false hope that all of this will stop at some point? Where is the logic to the claim that they will outsource “a little” and then stop. Don’t see them canceling any... — read more
What can 5G do today that LTE is not doing or failing at? What application NEEDS 5G and not 4G LTE? What's the k–ler app for 5G?
More $ in my pocket. Thanks VZ for VSP and waiting for lump sum pension. The rate VZ guaranteed was 1.25% until 7/1/19 however, the rate went down to 1% then to .75% and now it be going down to .50%. For every quarter % it goes down the Pension lump... — read more
Was asked by a friend's son if he should apply for a job here. Both of them were shock by everything I had to say - not one positive word about Verizon and a firm push to stay as far away from here as he possibly can. Which had me wondering... — read more
Does anyone know what happens to a pension if you leave before the unreduced collecting date?....say for example you have been vested but still have a few years before the un-reduced thing?..is it all lost or you still get some as lump... — read more
I have been offered to transfer abroad to train a certain team to basically do my job. I’m aware that this is a situation where I’m training my replacement, and I don't want to get into that. However, I want to ask will I be eligible for severance... — read more
Where have you taken your VSP vacation? Me.. London Munich Berlin Vienna Prague Bratislava Warsaw Thank you ...wait I actually forgot new CEO name..my post traumatic disorder is finally over. Thanks for the memories
That’s what I heard.....
It’s obvious that we’ve put all of our eggs in one basket, and to be honest, it makes me really worried, on top of my usul, every-day stress from fearing for my job. Does anyone feel the same way? Seems to me like a big bet for a company that has a... — read more
Didn't get a chance to talk to him yet, but for the life of me I can't figure out why he would want to return to Verizon after everything that has happened - and after knowing full well what kind of work environment we are subjected to on daily... — read more

What has changed except spending 100s of millions dollars, more SVPs and a plan to go to SAP which is already two years behind schedule. Isn’t ROI a finance function?
I know some states are allowing VSP ers to file and collect unemployment benefits. Has anyone in NY applied and successfully received?
Seems to me that all the layoffs, buyouts , outsourcing, and everything that has been done was for nothing. I can’t seem to think of any aspect of the business in which VY got better as a company as a result of this process. Turns out it was all for... — read more
Verizon LTE INTERNET SERVICE IS DOWN TODAY in Northeast US. Ironic that this issue happens after the last of the VSPers left in June.
It will all end sooner or latter, they will outsource everything you can count on it. So keep on earning and take advantage of the perks like tuition reimbursement. Do as much OT as you can and build up your reserves and get those resumes up to date... — read more
Why are they closing most of the wireless call cents by year end? I thought we were there “Golden” employees.
Verizon 2.0 is planing to eliminate SrManagers .
I’m a long-timer at Vz, and throughout my career I’ve witnessed many changes and shifts at the company, good or bad, but the last two years were something else to me. I feel like I was teleported to a totally different company, or something. I often... — read more
Any changes to Verizon Indirect?
Planning has begun for the next round of VSP. Similar timelines as last year. Identical offer. I work in BR and heard it from several Directors. I guess this is the Hans way. Better than RIFs.
Now they are hiring kids off the street with no clue of how the telephone infastructure work...weird its not like they are paying them less either
What kind of a plan with positive results as end goal includes getting rid of nearly everybody with any experience and inside knowledge of how things work and replacing them with cheaper and significantly less skilled people? Can somebody please... — read more
Quite a few of the chronic long term disability brothers and sisters in my area, who've been out for years and waiting for the super EIPP, seem to be calling it quits recently and retiring without. Anyone else noticing this phenomenon? Hmmmmmmm... — read more
Nobody knows what happened?
I'm thinking it can't be too long...
Just got an email that I’m moving from Wireless IT to whatever Verizon Data Services LLC is. I know big changes are coming but not sure what to expect from this.
Shank and team promised shareholders that they were replacing VZ employees with infy contractors and while doing that they were going to keep customer data safe. But due to lack of vision Shank is forced to give INFY "on site" prod access. Now infy... — read more
