Today is a sad day in WWE, and many employees are nervous within WWE. That came with a lot of cuts, and now we are hearing from one influential person who lost their job today.
WWE also fired Head of Marketing, Catherine Newman, from her position today. Amanda Bloom also joined that list of firings later on.
Amanda Bloom, who was WWE’s Director, Enterprise Master Data & Governance, took to LinkedIn to comment on her departure from WWE today. She wrote a post that she never thought she would have to write, but her job was taken from her after the TKO Holdings Group merger.
She went on to reveal things she has done for WWE over the past 8 years. That included a wide array of skills as well.
“A day I’m not sure I thought would ever come: I am among those affected by WWE’s layoffs today, and am updating my profile to #opentowork.
I have been at WWE almost 8 years, more than twice as long as I’ve been at any other company, and by any measure my tenure has been an enormous success. Over that time I’ve had the opportunity to:
• Design and implement an enterprise data model for an organization with robust but extremely siloed data accumulated over several years
• Work with SMEs across the organization to create master records and map the siloed data to those records
• Partner with data technology and analytics to make master and mapped data available in the data warehouse for automated, scalable reporting
• Participate in the design and deployment of a custom-built master data management platform with multiple system integrations
• Redesign our content model to align with industry standards and facilitate intuitive search and navigation on our OTT platform
• Manage the migration of our content library metadata to Peacock in time for our debut there in 2021
• Work on redesigning our MDM using a COTS solution and instituting more stringent data validation rules
• Learn and use a plethora of new apps and programming languages
• Work with some of the most talented, collaborative people it has ever been my pleasure to know, some of whom are also now on the market and you should snap them up ASAP
Above all I can say that I fostered a data-centric mindset among people who had been trained to make do with subpar data, who now take pains to create, maintain and share data that meets the high standards we implemented. The best a data professional can hope for is that the level of data quality won’t decrease in their absence, and I am extremely optimistic in that regard.
Now I’m off to find my next challenge. Maybe you know where it is. #KevinandSamiforever”
It was previously reported that the WWE Network and podcasting divisions were hit very hard by the cuts today. The number of employees losing their jobs today within WWE is bit staggering.
Hopefully, everyone who lost their job with WWE today will find another place to work very soon. Those releases also possibly came with severance packages, but that is no replacement for having a job.
What’s your take on WWE firing so many employees today? Sound off in the comments to let us know what you think!
