Report: Comcast To Cut 300 Jobs In Eastern Consolidation


The Philadelphia Business Journal reports Comcast will eliminate 300 positions in its Eastern Division as a result of a consolidation of the division’s six regions into four.

The company did not offer information on how many jobs will be affected in the Philadelphia area, the publication said.  It said, according to Comcast, most of the jobs being eliminated are at the division and regional management levels and it will try to find other jobs for the people whose positions are being eliminated.

Comcast is combining its Philadelphia Metro and New Jersey regions into the Freedom Region and merging its Potomac Region with its Maryland, Delaware, Richmond region to produce the Beltway Region, the publication said.

The company’s Central Pennsylvania and Three Rivers regions will remain as is. The Three Rivers Region includes Western Pennsylvania and parts of Ohio and West Virginia.

In July, Comcast


one of five operating divisions altogether and shifted William Connors, formerly of the eliminated Midwest Division, to Philadelphia to run the Eastern Division. Former Eastern Division chief Michael Doyle left the company at that time.
