Connexion Technologies (North Carolina) Lays Off 232


This mass layoff notice from the Triangle Business Journal sounds like a case of a company that expanded way too fast and then felt the ground crumble from beneath its feet:
Connexion Technologies, a company founded by former Cary Mayor Glen Lang, is laying off more than half of its 455 employees.

The Cary-based company filed a Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification notice with the state on Monday that said Connexion was planning to cut 130 to 140 jobs in North Carolina. In an interview on Tuesday, Executive Vice President Matt Springer put the number at 106 in North Carolina and 126 in other states.

Springer said the cutback follows difficulty in raising capital at the 10-year-old company, which has not yet achieved profitability. The firm customizes and manages communications networks in residential areas nationwide. The layoffs come despite the fact that Connexion’s revenue grew to about $47.7 million in 2011, up from about $30 million the year before, he says.

“We can’t fully fund our business plan for the year,” Springer said. “We have to take very serious action. It’s a very sad day here.”

The layoffs are effective March 14.

Connexion was among the fastest-growing companies in the Triangle as recently as 2010. It ranked 18th on Triangle Business Journal’s Fast 50 list in 2010, when it grew to 348 employees in the Triangle. Its national presence nearly doubled that year, to 612 employees, according to a ranking of privately held companies by Inc. magazine last year.
So they kept expanding right into the teeth of the Great Recession even though they have never turned a profit. As I've said, I've never been to business school, but that seems like a sure fire recipe for failure to me.

  1. Glen Lang lied to his employees telling them if we worked 10-12 hours days we would come out of this "hard time". Then without any notice we get emails from HR letting us know we were layed off. I don't think this follows the WARN guidlines and some employees that were keep were soley those in the family... I know I was told point blank if "if I did not do as I was told my 5+ yrs experience would not matter and I maybe let go". I guess that threat came true. Nice to know hard work and dedication means nothing in the CNXN workforce.

    1. Ron Nelson is a conceited ass that cannot handle the fact that the world in fact, does contain intelligent women. He hired SD because she was too stupid to see beyond his arrogance. His son almost gets fired as a TSR so what does SR do? Promotes him to a call center supervisor. In what world does that make someone a credible leader? You can try to justify it all you want by saying you need people you can trust, but we all knew the truth. Worthless mouthpiece.

    2. Fuck Ron Nelson. Fuck him and his ne'er-do-well idiot child. No other company would put up with that artard so daddy had him pity hired and what a joke of an addition he was to the TSR team.

    7. Hmmm. The only way I "know" the FBI wasn't there is because I must be FOG? That is about the most idiotic thing posted on this entire blog. That is quite the accomplishment considering all of the other BS that is being added.

  3. There is a lot of FRAUD going on here! DTV has fully pulled out of this company! Glenn Lang has ran his business into the ground! If you are not a member of upper managements family you do not have a job! No matter how many hours you put in, no matter how dedicated you were, your last name is what matters! You had a strong group of ethical employees willing to stand BESIDE you in your tough times to work hard and not let their name pull them thru this and they decided to let family help! LOL GOOD LUCK WITH THAT! You companies Primecast and Beyond communications are going to lead you nowhere! I now can somewhat breathe a sigh of relief not having to lie to customers telling them i do not answer the phone for 2 different companies! pheeeewww! Good luck fellow employees!

  6. I think the name "Glen Lang" should be black balled in the Cary community. The fact he was willing to commit FRAUD just to continue to make himself and his family and friends money is completely irresponsible and selfish. No matter what any employees were told, Glen NEVER had the employees best interests in mind and had no intention of doing so for the 10 years he was in this crime-spree business. No loyalty was shown to the ones that stood by him for years and years of their careers and lives - no severance should be illegal. If you ever come in contact with his man or his family members again, RUN. RUN VERY QUICKLY in the opposite direction. As far as I am concerned, he can rot alone for the rest of his life. He is the lowest scum on this earth. He is also a blatant pervert and I cant believe he hasn't been sued by more woman for the filth and slander that comes out of his mouth. Disgusting waste of a human being.

  7. Agree with the above post completely.

    ReplyDelete
  8. I , along with with the rest of my colleagues, was laid off via email after 5 years of service to include ALL HOLIDAY's , weekends etc. No severance whatsoever not to mention they did not have the decency to pay out personal time . Who in the world thought that having 27,000 ghost receivers, i.e. phantom subscribers, was a good idea? This constitutes the epitome of fraud and I hope Glen Lang and perhaps a few others get prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law...- Who remembers the layoffs in January when Glen Lang announced he was on the "left" coast because it was legal to do "certain things"- Basically announcing he was getting high while close to 100 were laid off? Let's not forget the great Eric Fichtner's responsibility in all this- another scumbag extraordinaire . What a sickening experience this has been devoting 5 years to a company that still employs child predators ( Rick Ahmed?) and has the sexually ambiguous Glen Lang at the helm.

      And while we're at it, someone needs to remind his bratty, self-entitled daughter Kaitlyn - who also works there - she's not the center of the universe. It will come as a huge shock to her. What a loser b***h she is.

    2. Your comments regarding Kaitlyn are way off base. She is an intelligent hard working woman that separated herself from the FOG umbrella. I get the bitterness, I think we all feel it, however a personal attack on parties that were no more responsible for the company failing than you or I are is immature and uncalled for. You are entitled to your opinion, however the remarks you make about KA would lead me to believe you never worked for her or with her.

    3. You're right. Wrong forum. My emotions got away from me, but my opinion of her Is what it is. I wish nothing but the very, very best for those folks who were affected by the greed and unethical practices that upper management were complicit in.

    4. I believe we can all agree that there should be legal ramifications for possible fraud. It's difficult not to get personal when your livelihood is put in limbo. We all have personal feelings both positive and negative about our former co workers, as the blame starts and ends at the top of the ladder. I appreciate the acknowledgement of realizing personal attacks do not belong in this forum, but understand and feel the same anger.

    7. Glen's gross tendencies towards sexual harassment in the workplace filtered down throughout the company. It was a gross atmosphere all around. HR never did anything. I had some unwanted advances from another VP, and even though I left the company after only 6 months and I figured out what was going on (6 months too long, if you ask me!) he still tries to contact me occasionally. i've had to block him from my email.

  11. Words that come to mind? Nepotism. Favoritism. Unethical. Shady. Delusional. I have been in meetings with a certain person of high authority where he gathered all of management together to "get our lies straight" before video vendors came to visit. Activated receivers to "meet quota" and stored them in a warehouse somewhere. They hired kids - alot of those belonging to a certain person's neighbors in his uber ritzy neigborhood - right out of college, a lot of which are now without jobs. I shudder to think how they'll fare in the real world. Everything that is said above is wholly true. Run.

  13. The thing about this whole situation is that it is not just Glen that is to blame.
    Most if not all of the upper mgmt and this includes VPs, should be held to the same accord as Glen.
    Most if not all of them knew what was going on and they all made decisions or were part of the decision making that put this company into the shape that it is in. This company had a lot of very good, smart, and dedicated people who truly wanted to see this company make it to the top and make it successful, that worked thier asses off day and night and weekends to try and get us there.

    But I personally saw way to many upper level mgmt people have their own agenda's; not to see the company as a whole succeed; but what can they get out of it, that would benefit themselves. that in itself is a real issue and a flag, for me. These people should also be held responsible for the shape that the company is in. Then you had the latter climbers, same thing, personal agenda, rather then company well being and success. It is really really sad that this is all happenening. There were a lot of people that worked at CNXN and hoped that this would be the last job that they would have, they wanted to stay with the company until they retired. so sad...

  14. When will all you people wake up this is what companies do.They take advantage of hard working middle class people to make themselves rich and not just comfortable rich.Enough is never enough for these types of people.Workers in this country are just so content to have a job and figure if they work hard they will get ahead.Well that may have been true many years ago but not anymore.In this country most people have the attitude of just sit back and take it.Until there is a stance for equality in this country its only going to get worse.The American dream is exactly what it is a dream so wake up people

  15. The use of social media outlets by whiners and those in need of self promoting self worth by belittling others is elementary and shows your level of education. With that being said a few things need to be cleared up here. I was an employee of 5+ years so I know what I'm talking about. Making personal attacks on Kaitlyn about the fate of this company, a young woman with her first real world business experience ever with her job at connexion, simply shows how unprofessional you are. Second of all, I disagree that upper mgmt and VPs should be held to the same accord as Glen. Glen overpaid and put alot more people than Kaitlyn in those VP positions that had no previous similar level management experience, no proven record of success at the company prior to being elevated to that position, and no feedback from the people that actually worked for these managers, nor was it mandatory that other similar level managers grade and review the job their peer was doing.

    1. Most in that Cary office knew what was going on, knew it was fraudulent and unethical and continued to draw a paycheck. Regardless of your "level" at the company, contributing, participating or sitting passively by while that type of behavior continues makes you pretty guilty in my mind. Perhaps not to the level that GL acheived, but close. And for those who read this who didn't/don't work there, I assure you, that "knowledge" didn't stop at the VP level.

      Delete
    2. Whiners? You must be out of your God Damned mind. Hundreds of employees were laid off and need an outlet in which to vent- So be it if a few individuals get called out- regardless if you feel the need to defend one of the Ahmed's they were only employed because they were Glen Lang's neighbors.

      Delete
    3. What qualifies you to evaluate Kaitlyn's value as an employee? The statements made about her are false and have nothing to do with the company failing. Making a personal attack on her based on what I can only guess is due to jealousy is immature. If her last name got her foot in the door, so what! The majority of the employee base was brought on by referral. She worked for her position and earned it. I would say annonamously attacking someone personally on a public forum may not be whining, but it is immature.

    4. Well said..."annonamously" defending folks. Way to stand up.

  16. Glen always was vocal about having a 5 year plan to have the business sold and move on. The real issue is that Connexion is a microcosm of the condition and mindset that defines the American business owner today. Gone are the days of dreaming to create a company with long term sustainability. Glen's total investment in Connexion is around $50K. Reedy Creek has invested half a billion. DirecTV told Glen how to cheat the system because they were at risk of not showing a constant quarterly increase in new subscribers and those managers were told to make the increase if they want to keep their job because that's what the investors of the publicly traded company demand. What makes me sick to my stomach is that Glen had the ability to manipulate anyone he wanted by overpaying people he could control and force to sacrifice their morals by carrying out the lies when he had lost credibility with the employees and no longer could stutter his way telling everyone "it's a great day to be a connexion employee". What was great was the quality of people that was the everyday employee at connexion, and the relationships we all developed because of connexion. The VP's are NOT bad people. They are folks that have families that needed the paycheck in a world that recently was reported needs $150K annually to live "comfortably" and able to spend above the necessary staples such as food and mortgages and friggin gas. What is to blame is that many of these VP's took the money and recognized the environment Glen was creating and spent their days jumping on conference calls they had no business wasting their time being on because they were like the band member invited to the popular kid's party for the first time. They were unqualified and uncomfortable in the positions they held and they knew it, learning how to be an executive from other bad executives. The reason we are all pissed about this situation is because we feel that we had built something special thru hard work and innovative thinking successfully doing things nobody else could do with fiber and deployment when we focused on high rises. But that wasn't good enough. All the money that should have been reinvested in the company to continue down the path of our true product, was rather spent on lawyers and court room battles to kick out the incumbent provider so we could stop having to wet the pockets of the developers, which was never going to be allowed by Big Brother government. "The smaller companies failed at this because they didn't have the money to go after AT&T and Verizon". Yeah right. Time to wake up. The ILECs run things on capitol hill and still do even though they are currently ripping out providing pension plans to their employees. I'm pretty sure my ancestors would be disgusted with the level of whores and pimps that populate the business environment today. I'm pretty sure that's not what they died to protect and not what kids today in Afghanistan are fighting for. If you want to blog about being pissed, it should be that we have now been forced into being associated with a company and a man that embodied the same characteristics that is causing our entire country to fail. Get rich as quick as possible and come out ahead even when it fails miserably. I highly doubt anyone will go to jail, nor will anyone be "black-balled". We've become an LLC society and nobody bears any responsibility for anything anymore. The only ones hurt is our country because regular folks like you and me become less and less confident in corporate America and we lose a portion of what sacrifices were made so that we have what we've become dependent on to live our daily lives.

    1. I agree with your overall comment. I don't think Glen Lang ever had the intentions of building a solid sustainable company with a long term vision. He was wanting to get rich quick and duck out. I believe he enticed people with titles and pay only to have them do his "dirty work". However, I disagree with your comments on the VP's accountability. I don't believe its a question of good or bad on a personal level, but I believe when you hold a position of that stature you have moral and ethical responsibilities and accountabilites. Of course knowing what I know I don't believe that if any of them ever had made a stance and stood up for the "right" thing that it would have made a difference. He would have just fired them. I have made this statement before on other blogs...I believe he ran/runs the company like the Mafia. Sadly I am still employed with CNXN...waiting for the ball to drop, but diligently searching for another job..hoping to put this nightmare behind me soon.

  17. Considering DIRECTV now knows about the fraud of over 20,000 fake accounts, there are some law suits that are in the air and could be facing criminal charges, hence why the layoffs occurred and they pulled out. A lot of upper management knew about this as well, so it will come back at them hard in the ass. It's sad to know I worked for a company that truly had shit for their values. Be glad you were let go. Better opportunities will come your way.

  30. A few things - I truly loved working at this company. The people I worked with we're great hard working folk. It is sad that a company that COULD have and SHOULD have grown to be big failed on in my opinion one persons stupidity. I don't care if DTV said we could activate so many STBs or not..... You shouldn't do that. If a VP or a group is dropping the ball it is upper managements job to correct that. Clearly this was looked over as well. Lastly, I am not related, didnt work for, not friends with Kaitlyn in any way. I know her only through work and I must honestly say she is one hell of a hard worker who has more knowledge on business than most of the upper management or anyone else I ever dealt with in this company. I worked there for 6 years and was privlaged enough to know most off the great employees. I wish you all the best, and hope we can all think of at least one thing we did get out of working at CNXN, if not I am sorry you wasted your time there. Good luck all

The sad thing is that there were so many hard working folks toiling away at CNXN for so long while the VP and C-suite level folks were driving the company into fraudulent waters...one SEC violation after another. Wonder how those boys in Accounting are doing now? I have been in office meetings where we were told by G Lang and E Eric Fichtner to purposefully change units counts while he was looking over our shoulders at the computer monitor. Wow! Glad we didn't do it now. Speaking of the "on again-off again" CEO, EVP, COO (whatever title he wanted at the time) snake, Eric Fichtner... it's no wonder the company is ending in financial disaster.
    How can you be successful when you have someone like him steering the ship, in part, when he can't even keep his personal financial situation straight, ie, getting foreclosed on his Florida condo. What a joke! Most of the execs were clueless from the start on how to manage finances! Nice job GL, EF, PL, CT, JF!

    2. Yeah, what exactly would be the grounds for your lawsuit? If you were employed in the Cary office, NC is a right to work state, meaning you or your employer can terminate your employment at will at any time. Not sure what you are looking for legally? Unpaid PTO? Holiday pay? They don't have to give you any of those things.

Optimus Prime sent a top secret audio codex message through the backdoor sniffer packet fiber optic cloud mesh RG59 quad shield that read: Autobots! Roll out!

  53. Disappointed that his shady scheme didn't "take" and that he wasn't able to walk off with millions of dollars after going public and selling this farce of a company? I bet. Poor Glen.

    You're mistaken that "this happens everywhere". Perhaps this was your first real job, but Connexion was a dysfunctional company with a proclivity for (in some departments) hostile working conditions. Add in to that the deceptive business practices - that does happen, but "everywhere" is quite a stretch.

    A word to the wise - if you want pity or empathy for Glen, you'd best start up a blog elsewhere. I don't think you'll find any of that here.

  54. Why get mad, Glen only did what other shady employers do. Use opm, other people money skim off the top for his close friends and run the company in the ground. Poor concepts of managing a company. I have said for to long this was a company bound to go bottom up from its poor leadership.

That was your fate and it will continue with you as long as you keep thinking this happened as a result of Glen. I have worked with too many companies and seen bs worse than this take place so I kind of have a thick skin to all of this.

    1. Sorry you have had such a bad work history, but this is NOT THE NORM. Don't make excuses for anyone, he played a large role in all of it. Maybe you weren't all around for those days where Glen came in our office and proceeded to tell us (at least 3 times) about the sex life of one of the other employees when we were trying to work. Or the rants at 8:01 when he did desk checks and someone wasn't there yet. Or when smart people told him the truth and he blew up at them in the hallways because he didn't like the answer. I think it's fair to say that everyone has their own experience within the company and with Glen. I don't think it's much to ask that a company is run fairly and ethically and the culture that was Cnxn was Glen's creation.

    2. I was paid for working my a$$ off 10-11 hours a day for 6 day weeks for over 18 months. This was after cnxn took over my previous employer who was successful and treated hard working staff with good benefits, RAISES (they do exist i swear) and job stability. The last 6 months at cnxn were terrible due to the stress of lay offs on the horizon and to say this has nothing to do with Glenn and his hiring of incompetents and shady business practices shows how in his pocket you really were.

  56. MORE NEWS IS FLOODING IN! Glen has escaped Captain Planet's grasp by biting him! The toxic drool has entered into Captain Planet's blood stream and has knocked him unconscious. The Planeteers have taken Captain Planet to McDonalds to recover. Glen, being unable to enter McDonalds because it is a successful company, has headed back to his failing business!

    Glen and Megatron have issued no more benefits for the employees! Doom and gloom ricochets throughout the company as employees struggle with this news! While a group of brave CSRs tried to escape through the ceiling panels they made it to the parking lot! But disaster happened! A decepticon disguised as an angry mother goose obliterated them and they are dead! Glen and Megatron just laughed as it is more money going into their pockets with the death of a few CSRs.

    All the while the Nerdy Network guys are working diligently in blocking all outbound backside 10 meg half port forwarding messages to Glen's friend the Dark Lord Sauron from Mordor.

  60. This is pretty bad folks. Glen Lang was a PoS when he was Mayor of Cary. He lied to the people and city council and he voted on matters in which he had a vested financial interest. When the city was forced to write and implement a code of ethics I stood up at the Council meeting and demanded they name it correctly: The Glen Lang Memorial Ethics Ordinance. If it wasn't for him we wouldn't have needed it. Funny though, that a guy with a lot of business in front of the city council turns out to be a major financial backer of Connexion. It's almost as if Jim Goodnight was paying for "services rendered".

  78. It was sad to watch this happen as a 20 year vet in the industry. I meet Glen when he started the company. There was never any margin there. The business plan was flawed from the start. Connextions just had a good backer and everyone that backed them and the employees wanted it to work.

    As a 3rd party observer it was hard to watch. There were good sincere people here at this company...there were well intended investors.

    I see your frustrations and your anger...I must say the arrogance at the top...the "we have money, before the money was earned (never profitable) was blatant for all of us in the industry. You can never run these companies unless you build them from the ground up or have grow up in the industry. Residential Customer service business is a tough one. Very few PCOs make it. ILECs and MSO's have done this for decades and still cant meet expectations and keep their customers satisfied. How could Connextions ever do it with no experience, little history, very high overhead and very little at the top visional leadership? A magic pill?

    There really just isnt such things. For those of you that worked hard at this company, it was not in vein...you have learned. There is life after the "company". There are good groups on LinkedIN for the Cable, Data and Telcom industry were jobs are posted, if you want to remain in this industry (which may be hard for some of you after this experience).

    Again, it was sad to watch and it is sad to hear that good people (and there are some daum good people) on the team were caught up here. Family First...take care of them.

    Good luck Connextions Alumni...our best wishes are with the good ones of you all!

  88. In criminal law, a fraud is an intentional deception made for personal gain or to damage another individual; the related adjective is fraudulent. The specific legal definition varies by legal jurisdiction. Fraud is a crime, and also a civil law violation.

    The only way anything happens is if Goodnight or the banks file complaints, which probably won't happen but should. Glen got his great ideas from Enron and Worldcom. Everyone in management knew/knows what was/is going on, but have looked the other way for their own personal gain. It is truly sad.

      Glen Lang defrauded me, a Cary citizen, of honest and clean municipal government. I have never had the satisfaction of having that restored as Glen Lang's owner, Jim Goodnight, paid for more politicians (such as current Mayor Harold Weinbrecht and city councilor Gayle Adcock) who were willing to stay bought.

      The positives that may have been generated are not excuses to ignore the rest.

      Nice try Glen.

  97. Nope, I have no idea who rick alder may or may not be. I'm not playing games or hiding my identity. I'm not a former employee or customer of Connexion's.

    Heck, I'm not Jorge Lucasa either, just a guy who knows what Glen Lang actually is. So, go ahead Glen, go on a witch hunt, I don't care and you're not going to scare or intimidate me. Just know this, I am living rent free in your head Glen. Enjoy!

  98. Is the lawsuit just for Gulf Shores office or CNXN as a whole?

  99. I am so going to sue you! After I take away all your Performance Units!

  100. This is funny! Matt Springer takes a break from laying people off and/or burning evidence at Connexion to snoop on my Linkedin profile.

    Really Matt? You better be careful, being an EVP at Connexion Technologies may make you unemployable elsewhere if you don't get out now. I've had more than one former Connexion employee tell me that having that on their resume has hindered their job search.

    Laying people off via email and/or text message, that is one innovation brought to us by Connexion I think we can do without.

  103. So campers, Connexion EVP Matt Springer is snooping on my linked in profile. Here's a clue Matt: it won't help you, Clubber Lang, or Connexion. A bankrupt and defunct business cannot sue anyone. Given what you, Glen, et al, have done you guys aren't gonna sue anyone. The longer you stay at Connexion the more unemployable you are making yourself in the post Connexion portion of your career.

    Why are you still there?

  104. Connexion employees! If you can speak to any of these issues:

    1- Directv preactivations
    2- the Gulf Shores employees class action lawsuit
    3- bore holes dug under a RR without permission to carry Connexion fiber after the RR told Connextion: NO!
    4- bore hole dug through a US Army Corps of Engineer damn (here in NC) after the Corps told Connexion: NO!
    5- Any matter of unethical or illegal conduct on the part of upper management at Connexion...

    email me at jbarbara@nc.rr.com or David Ranii at the Raleigh News and Observer at dranii@newsobserver.com

    Speak anonymously, that's fine. I've been speaking with several Connexion employees already and know quite a bit about what was going on, I only posted a little at the top of this message.

    Glen Lang is inert, much like a day old fart, he cannot hurt anyone at this point.

  105. I know about ghost accounts created by Connexions, customers names and addresses were labeled on stb and stored in warehouses.
