I hate the way they let some people go, escort them out the door and don't let them even get their belongings from the desk. One guy had worked there 28 years told him they would box up his belongings for him. That seems so humiliating on top of... read more

We do not market our products. We spend so much money putting infrastructure in the ground, and then get a 30% taje rate, if we are lucky. Some potential customers do not even know who Windstream is, and here we are the ILEC. That is sad. Sales... read more
I heard there are other layoffs scheduled for October and November. Does anyone know if these will be voluntary?

Called in for "training" then got booted. This is how a Fortune 500 operates. The new normal. WS will not say how many were let go, because they aren't done yet. They probably need to look at the "C" level group to get replaced. There is no one at... read more

It is my understanding that a VSP will be offered in Oct. or Nov. if that is the case it could leave Windstream open for lawsuits
The company has absolutely No direction. They spend time asking questions and surveys with stupid meetings -- and NOTHING of value ever comes from them. Lots of top tier talent left today -- not the bottom of the barrel. This was a numbers game and... read more
Straight from the horse's mouth
Windstream continues to punish the people who get it done everyday. The leadership for the past two years has been terrible. They continue to purchase debt heavy companies. Then address that through continual layoffs. I think they need to clean house... read more
