Run for your life

Run run run the cannonball hit the side of the ship today,throw the life boats out this baby is going down.


Any updates on the BTAC layoff March 31st? I’ve noticed everytime I call I’m talking to another Indian I can’t understand. I figured they would be outsourced to Prodapt pretty soon. Seems like that’s all that’s answering the phones anymore.

Why are the C-Level Exes Lie

Do you honestly think the employees, past or present are so stupid as not to see that executives are starting threads on here. If you are on any hands on call or read Stream, then you know. This is the level that they will sink to. They say it's not... read more

I hate what this company has turned into

I used to love working here. Now every day one of the first things I do is check this page to see if there were any new rumors of possible layoffs. How sad is that? Working with no job security is neither good for the employees nor the employer (I... read more

C-Suite Salaries

Just in case anyone was wondering... The data is as of 2016, but it has not changed that much since then.

Use your Optional holidays

I voluntarily resigned from the company. HR told me that I would receive a prorated vacation pay on my last check (total vacation time divided by 12, multiplied by number of months completed for the year minus number of days used). For me it was... read more

Lay Off tomorrow??

So my mgr has been behind closed doors for the last 2 weeks,, which is what she cowardly does when a layoff approaches. Will there be a layoff tomorrow 3/1???

Too much IQ, not enough wisdom...

There's some folks on Stream that want to be fired and call it retaliation. Convinced of this. It's hard to wrap your head around I know, but marketing/advertising matter even when your stock has tanked. Every aspect of a business doesn't grind to a... read more

Have the peasant cattle of Windstream settled down and the fear subsided? While they continue to work their mediocre, dismal, underpaid jobs lol?

2 weeks notice with Windstream

Anyone who has left Windstream and still had remaining PTO and Optional holiday along with Sick Time. Do you get paid for that if you don't use it or do you use it all? Been trying to reach HR about this.

We made the earnings call this morning!

Look, they remembered those of us given the boot on today's earnings call just as expected. My only question is what efficiencies are they taking about because the folks I know that were let go are still sorely needed in their old roles. Also, just... read more
