Over the past couple of days, the Midwest region (IL) of AT&T has had numerous management folks terminated. The Midwest VP of C&E has been terminated along with a Director and several Area Managers. Doesn't sound like it's over as more changes seem imminent. AT&T is sending in Kevin Haynes from TX who will assume the repsonsibilities of the VP position effective September 1, 2012. Also heard that Ernie Carey (Sr. VP reports to Stankey) from Dallas was in IL wielding the hatchet and was in Michigan yesterday. Anyone out there know the real story of what these folks did and how far reaching this could go.
The Obama economy what else? In order to maitain profitability with fewer customers being able to pay for expensive bundles, cuts are being made. Less profitable business units and low level managers will pay the price for this awful economy.
