Well realistically, there are a lot of advantages to a buyout on the employee side. With a larger company comes more opportunity and a wider range of products to sell.
On the other hand, I've been through two corporate buyouts, and the bad thing is when they eliminate jobs due to redundancies and almost always the employees of the purchased company are treated like bastard children for a while.
But let's be honest, with the internal belt-tightening that Dobson has been doing, this shouldn't come as a major shock... trimming the fat has been happening in all areas of the business...

Or how about T-Mobile? T-Mobile has yet to acquire any carriers, other than when T-Mobile acquired Voicestream in 2001 or 2002.

it doesn't look like another carrier is going to buy us. It looks like they are considering doing what Alltel did: Sell to a private equity firm. By doing this shareholders make a huge sum and executives would be retained to run the company until it is resold in a few years.

So this is what happens when i leave Ms. Weary?! What exactly is going on??

If Dobson is selling out because they are in debt I would say this is because too many sups give those damn customers credit for stupid things!!!!!!


oh you are sad...let me credit your account $500.00

oh you didnt send 3,000 text messages...well ok let me credit that as a "1 x courtesy credit" - next bill cycle...You still didn't send those 5,000 texts...ok ok ok 1 last 1 x courtesy credit...and so on and so on....
