Beware. Not only did Windstream drop my insurance without notice, leaving me with 3 months of physical therapy bills to pay out of pocket to the tune of over 5K........they also told a potential employer I quit without notice while I was still on... — read more
I don’t understand the need for all the sales teams first of all. Why are they still around? Its 2022 direct to consumer is the way to go. You have 3rd party, D2D, RIS, Retail (really makes sense?), and many more. Plus they compete against each other... — read more
If you work at Windstream then you are part of this group The executives seem proud of this accomplishment and of course they are taking care of themselves very very well. Have you applied for a job yet?
Does anyone know how Max is doing? Christmas is around the corner so I'm sure TT is holding your bonus to get him new dog treats. Oh he will probably keep a couple of millions for himself. Sad place this is.
New CRO fired Aaron Baker (President of East sales region) and his boss Shawn Murray this week. I hear that a ton of sales people and Biz dev managers are being putting on PIP if they are not at 1/2 of their number for the year. That is a huge number... — read more
Surrounded by "yes men" you don't have a clue how close your most loyal and experienced employees are to leaving...and are leaving. The current merit offer for next year is too little too late.
Anyone heard about a potential sales RIF in September? Not sure if it's simply cutting underperforming folks or something bigger.
Left for greener pastures a while ago but wanted to check how the software powerhouse was coming along. I’m sure tons of great software has been written by now but I can’t seem to find any mention of it anywhere. What gives?
I finally got a better offer, but now I'm kind of in a dilemma. Anyone else who has doubts whether to leave despite being sick of this place? *Those who switch and supposedly ended up in better paying jobs need to understand they were probably... — read more
News out today - so depressing. "Sixty percent of workers who switched jobs from April 2021 to March 2022 saw their real earnings jump — by 9.7 percent on average." 'Those who stuck with their company fared poorly. Only 47 percent saw their real... — read more
Hearing about it a little but was curious how widespread it was.
I know this is a layoffs forum and people are unhappy and like to vent, but there's venting and then there's venting. There's so much name-calling, insults, and condescending replies for no good reason. If you're going to turn on somebody, turn on... — read more
Remember when TT asked Judge Drain for 20 million as a incentive to keep him and his boys motivated to keep the company afloat? Today it is still declining and he got it during a bankruptcy. You got nothing. I'm done now.
OMG, you people crack me up. Living each day wondering if today is RIF day, get a life. I have been with WIN 11yrs. I remember when I first started, I would see the old timers, the dead weight, the lifers as they called themselves sitting at the... — read more
Don't be discouraged with TT slapping you like a work horse. Time has proven that things will only get worse. Now I know it's difficult to move on but you can and will. In this day and age companies are hiring, I see it everyday. Don't think for one... — read more
"Signs point to yes" says the Magic 8 ball. I may just be paranoid.
Your leader TT will take you to the promise land. Oh, after he push mows his lawn and post about how hard it was. Then he will take a trip to the Alps again and post about it. Then there is Max. He treats Max better than his employees. Then he will... — read more
The biggest mistake I made was taking on more work, thinking that if I worked harder, it would pay off. No, I just got more work to do. Now I’m definitely doing a double or even triple workload and I’m completely exhausted. Now what? Quit? Stop... — read more
My impression is that managers here waste a lot of time on things that don't really matter much, while issues of importance to employees and to the future of this company in general are swept under the rug. How much longer will it be like that?
TT and MM - you win - I am so miserable at Windstream that I cannot function. Am I being punished for not using pronouns correctly? My pay has fallen so much against inflation that Windstream soon will not be my main source of income and I will... — read more
Thoughts other than TT spinning the responsibility toward the individual contributor instead of accountability for his organization infrastructure and a concern for employee satisfaction?
I see many people are hitting the job market these days. A few people that I know already left at the beginning of the year. I know all of us will find that there is a lot wrong with this company, but I ask the people that are actively looking for... — read more
Anyone know about 5 o'clock tonight meeting
So, my husband and I are thinking about buying a house. I thought it a good idea to have a 'heart to heart' with my manager about my job security before making such a move. Here is what I was told, " Our days are numbered, but we need to "watch... — read more
HR begging for positive reviews on Gladsdoor again. Lemme see.... 2% raise with 9+% inflation. You sure you want these reviews? You sure you want everyone to know that you must participate in a blood draw for insurance, or it's $500 in surcharges?... — read more
When inflation rises and wages are flat its called stagflation. Windstream has been perfecting this for years. NEVER go to work at this company unless you are truly into Masochism. Who knows - Masochists of Windstream may be the next Employee... — read more
For the month of June, I want to challenge you to post a picture of your summer vacation destination whether it be in another town, state, country, or even a staycation! At the end of the month, we will pick two lucky winners to each win a $50 credit... — read more
Too many people are lazy when it comes to looking for a new job and have missed a great opportunity to leave Windstream while the job market was scorching hot. We are probably a few months away from recession, so I'd advise you to start looking right... — read more
Really MM - I have not had a raise in years but you have articles about pronoun usage - REALLY!!! GDAMIT - I need to support my family with a paycheck that keeps up with inflation. I don't need any F-KKING lessons about treating people. In fact... — read more
Time for more RIFs. Can't pay anyone more, gotta cut, not at the top, of course.
EMPLOYEE: What’s up with inflation vs. compensation? TT: Yeah, Boy, Ge-z, gas is expensive. EMPLOYEE: TT: Mary? MARY: Any ERG you want! EMPLOYEE:
173 reviews and a one star rating.. looks just like Glass Door only without the 'promoted reviews' to hide the dirt. From Joey T Was sold 100mbs internet. Techs showed up to my home and installed it. After the installation was over they informed me... — read more
