Topics regarding layoffs at Windstream Corp.
Back to office. Who's ready??
I have a feeling that there are constant layoffs in this company. It is impossible to be productive in such an atmosphere. How do they think that someone will do their best if there is a possibility that they will not work in this company next month?... — read more

Not sure if this qualifies as a layoff but we were just informed our job title was being eliminated at the end of the year. At least we got a heads up.
Windstream created ERGs for specific societal segments. Today 6 new Directors, 5 belong to one of the special Employee Resource Groups. How far does it need to go before we can call it biased and discriminatory??
I quit this "TU-D" and their narcassistic management back in March after 14 years. I built my own Company on the side while listening to these id--ts.
My big complaint is the lack of transparency in this company. I think we deserve to be at least a little more transparent. Someone said it well: there is never enough information to be able to paint a full picture when it comes to layoffs. However... — read more
I heard a rumor that Windstream will try to "claw back" some severance pay if the laid-off employee gets a new job during the severance period. Does anyone know if this is true? Has it happened to anyone?
Why would a software powerhouse sell off one of its software products?
Always depressing to read about every other industry employee's wages growing while thinking how wages at Windstream do not ever increase. Thanks Tony and HR
How many got hit today?
During the layoff meeting with HR you are required to provide your mailing address, personal email address and personal phone number. Almost immediately after, I started receiving unsolicited commercial emails, phone calls, text messages. I was... — read more
I don’t know if people here are used to uncertainty or what is the problem? Uncertainty here due to layoffs is a common thing because they are very common. This situation has been going on for years. I could no longer think about surviving another... — read more
With Frontier moving towards it coming out of bankruptcy having the same owners as WS, when will the announce the merger?
As scheduled meetings are postponed, I am now even more anxious and suspicious that the reason for this meeting is layoffs in the coming period. Why did they cancel the meetings so suddenly I wonder? Does it seem to you that layoffs are in the... — read more
Does anyone have any details on which groups might be most affected by the possible upcoming layoffs? I know no one is safe, but maybe some groups are less safe than others.

Just look at out competition - some of them have much better results than we do but all of them vary from bad to worse in the way they treat employees. If you are tired of the toxicity, politics and no job security, my advice is to look at smaller... — read more
Just leave if you have the opportunity. Win has solidified themselves as a Bernie Madoff and non profitable company. If you stay then it's your fault, not theirs. They are just using you for as long as they need you. Mic Drop.
WE Will always treat employees poorly. WE Will never adjust pay for inflation. WE Will tell you Windstream is not a jail if you complain. WE Will treat the ERG members better than other regular emplyees. Anyone care to add other specifics on what... — read more

Time to push mow the lawn.
Time to reduce the IT numbers again. Let the Service desk and the hardware depot handle everything. I hope it works out!
Go back and listen to the powerful messages and promises that never became. Software Powerhouse, Fixed Wireless or anything else. It's was to keep everyone in board until you where no longer needed. It made the tops rich and still getting richer... — read more
