Divine Buys Viant

from the merger-between-failures dept

Remember Viant? The overhyped internet consultancy? I wasn’t even sure if they were still around. Remember Divine? The overhyped internet incubator that never went anywhere, and keeps changing its business model. Well, now they’re a single company. Divine has bought what’s left of Viant. Consolidation among failing companies. I guess that’s one way to try to keep going.

Racial Discrimination/EEOC violations

I am surprised that Viant would let itself get acquired by divine, especially with all the dirt about to be exposed.
Strong word going around that a major discrimination suit will hit the stumbling incubator, as it bungles its way trying to manage its newest wave of layoffs.
Does Viant not care to do any real research on this and other stories about to hit the press?

Re: Racial Discrimination/EEOC violations

Word has it that the EEOC has issued right to sue letters to support the class action cause. Last week divine announced a 50% pay cut for the next 2 pay periods. This was announced a few days after a mandatory 5%pay cut was announced to anyone making over 60k. Time to get out.
