We all know that Elliott wants to get paid. A merger with Frontier has been rumored. But now, an article on the Waa Street Journal says Zayo is reportedly in talks to buy both Windstream and Uniti.
Personal being shuffled at higher levels, outages occurring more on regular and affecting business talking points. Lil T almost crying on calls. Sales without blue light special deals not getting done. Elliot going to off hand the pork, trying to... — read more
Windstream has become a nursery of talent. Probably because there is management that does not do its job well, that is, that does not know how to get the best out of their employees. ___ I have worked for many companies and was always told I did... — read more
This policy of a 3% raise once every three years has now caused employees to chose between food and health insurance. Winter will soon make heating home another choice. This is absolute BS. Is leadership too stupid to realize that inflation is now... — read more
as if morale in this POS company wasnt horrible enough for us to begin with, imagine getting a call from your uncle "Jiffy Shock" to inform you of your poor performance! go eff yourself. poor performance? take a look in the mirror. you and your... — read more
With Windstream management drooling over infrastructure funds while denying non-management emplyees a raise. It is time for ALL employees to unionize. If management fights the effort then bye bye goes the government funds. Of course they could give... — read more
Another year where social security recipients garner larger COLAs than Windstream employees. Perhaps a mass sick out would open managements eyes
So.. this says a lot to me. The links might not work since this page likes to put dashes in things but we shall try. Biden gave an EO on Sep 9th. The EO states that there will be a task force established ("Safer Federal Workforce") that will work... — read more
If this company plans to keep on simply transferring the work of people who leave onto those who are still here, then it will not end well... Initially I accepted the extra work because I cared to keep my job here, but I no longer intend to do the... — read more
It won't belong before it happens
da P e e P ? Did TT ever go after him, or will he live on as the only WS employee who ever beat TT at his own game????? Asking for a friend ;)
Competitor company now has an open position that I have been waiting for a long time. I’d rather dedicate myself completely to getting that job, but on the other hand I’m also a little scared if it’s risky to reach out to a competitor? Does anyone... — read more

Whoever tries to convince you you're safe here, call them a liar in their face! I was an id--t who believed them and now I'm out on my a-s. I trusted my manager who swore several times I had nothing to worry about!!! This place is filled with liars... — read more
I thought I would stay here for a while longer, that was the plan,,,, but I suddenly changed my mind. I've been doing someone else's job for months and last week it all culminated when I was told I should try even harder. Really? I will be relieved... — read more
Just received the 2022 open enrollment. All I can say is wow , hard to sell that lack of insurance to any potential new hire. I’m surprised more people don’t leave after seeing those numbers.
but rather because I'm hoping that I will find myself on the layoff list. Sounds a little ugly so those who are afraid of losing their jobs please forgive me, but I would do anything to be on that layoff list. I think there are many more who would be... — read more
I will soon be able to bring home as much money working as a grocery bagger as I do now engineering Windstream's network.
Saw the post on Stream blaming Bandwidth.com for VOIP issues since they are an upstream provider. Question is, what about our network? Can't get to external sites (OFSC, Google maps, FedEx, etc.) without several tries if at all. And it's not just... — read more
Before you ki-l someone.
If those at the top don't realize that this company urgently needs more people, I think they will lose a lot of those who are still here. It's become unbearable to work here because we are so understaffed. I don't plan to keep doing a triple... — read more
I have been working here for many years. I have lots of experience. I have always been among the more productive employees. And now, suddenly, micromanagement. Why is that? It really bothers me, creates enormous pressure for me and interferes... — read more

Just out of curiosity. How many emails do y’all get every day that pretty much tells you that you didn’t do anything right? Like even though your a good tech, you still may not have made managements numbers what they wanted so they scold you for it... — read more
Yesterday was my worst day here ever. I came very close to giving notice out of frustration even though I still hadn’t found a new job. I have long since stopped hoping that something can be changed for the better here. It is a bit sad to say that... — read more
The expected rotation has started. Leaving windsuck for other companies. Staying only means more work and training others. LEAVE NOW. They wiil ignore long term employees expecting you to train others and ignore. NO MORE
For those of you who have not been vaccinated nor do you have plans to do so, even at the cost of losing your jobs here, I wonder what are your plans for the future? I am trying to find another job and, even though I was vaccinated, for 3 months... — read more
Wondering if management asks why nobody responds on calls yet. It is because we are pI---d and don't care any longer. Good job TEAM
Per the town hall a few days ago. TT plans to mandate the vax per Bidens mandate. Can't say that I blame him since we are a govt contractor.. but wow.. that many not vaxed? I wonder how many will be leaving soon. I might be one of them.
Because of inflation and practice of averaging 1 % adjustment per year on salary i am at one meal a day. Soon to be one meal every two days. Managent at this company is evil.
Under this new Biden mandate requiring business over 100 people to get vaccinated or get tested every week, will Windstream require everyone to be vaccinated as a condition of employment? This is the major goal of this executive order. He’s hoping... — read more
I worked for a company that was purchased by windstream. It was in the NY/CT area. The existing windstream employees made it difficult to fit in. They did as little as possible to train or assist on existing equipment.they would also make negative... — read more

It's looking more and more like the ILEC assets will be integrated with Frontier by Elliott. I keep hearing mentions of it from coworkers and on here. Nothing really from the Frontier side of the house? Any idea what the plan is for the CLEC assets... — read more
Since this company is anti experience and knowledge I suggest they offer anybody with more than 25 years of experience a golden handshake buyout package. Heck just think of all the possibility’s… lower pay scales for fresh meat bodies out of school ... — read more
It is clear what is poisoning this company and why it is sinking, and yet, there is no interest in acting against this poison. I can't understand that at all. What's the logic here, would they rather let everything be ruined?
I wonder what attracted them to come to Windstream? The one I know left so quickly that I believe he broke the record in how short someone stayed in the company. Only people without a skill set can come here, those who have not done research and... — read more
