    The way I understand is he just got his rating last week and today was surplussed. He was top performer for the past six years . His new manager just ignored his contribution throughout the year and assigned him in the middle level rating not low performer and he is still surplussed!

      The state of WA was one of the 10 cities/states to be in according to ATT where they want to keep employees. Sounds like he got screwed by his new manager

      Yep sounds political. Not worried about him because he is super brilliant. But this is really going to be a mark on his performance and confidence 😒

    • Yup, there are old school, ignorant, scared as shit "managers" that they rather pick a top performer than getting their incompetent asses surplussed and replaced by the good elements. Shitty politics.

      That’s the thing. So much of your career is controlled by such incompetent people.

      I applied, although having all the required skills, I never got a response. Dunno if it’s because I am in H1b or any internal referral is required !?

    Yes there were layoffs at ATT today. I heard criteria based on rating first and then location. There are 10 hub cities/states they want employees to be located in

    Everyone at AT&T gets middle of the pack rating. They force the distribution, it changes year to year but I hear it somewhere near the 5-90-5 curve.
