  • The Russians are coming, the Russians are coming!
    I hope they bring some Vodka and lighten up the mood in the telecom industry.

  • 250 employees were laid off and not fired. There is a difference between firing an employee and laying off an employee.

      • Fired = let go because they did something wrong
        Laid off = let go because the company did not need them any more (for whatever reason).

        From an employee viewpoint, it is easier to get another job if you were laid off. Not so easy if you were fired for stealing from the company or being incompetent or something like that.

      • Lay-Off: Employee gets benefits as per agreement in offer letter. Employee will get encouraging experience letter. Lay-Offs are done when services are no more required.

        Fire: Results due to any negative action. No recommendations from the employer. Experience letter may not be as per desire. Termination letter is issued etc.

        I hope Mr. Shahid’s explanation along with this might be helpful in clarification the difference.

  • I think there is no need to cover these kind of news, we have nothing to do with the companies’s internal matters.

  • I don’t know why you post such useless information? Hum ko kar karna hai unn ki marzi jiss ko nikalen jiss ko rakheen.. hamari sehat par konsa asar parey ga

  • @sahahid saleem & jawad: brothers … all i wanted to say was that the bottom line is … “They lost their jobs”…

    • Allah does not guarantee employment anywhere in Islam. So, it is just a fact of life, like getting an illness.

  • If Mobilink’s revenue is flat, then it is Chief commercial officer who should be fired first. He is responsible for sales and marketing, not CTO. Looks like the Russian hammer will be coming down on other executives also.
