    John Legere leaving T-Mobile for WeWork?

    The stories are making the rounds, that John is "in talks" with WeWork, considering the CEO position.

    I think his leadership would be sorely missed at Tmo.

    Also, what the HELL is WeWork and why would anyone ever want to be their CEO ??? Haha. Don't do it John, if Masayoshi Son has had his fingers in it... it's stagnant and dieing.

    Hey gang, what's the word on this development ?

    Just wanted to add...

    WeWork is owned by SoftBank. You might remember them as the most recent owners of Sprint. It's a company that's run by Masayoshi Son - an imbecile who talks about having a 500 year plan for his company while constantly losing billions and lacking any real vision beyond perpetual, rampant, crony capitalism.

    Here's a good article about Masayoshi Son's SoftBank and what they do.....

    Dear John Legere... I know you're thinking it might be a challenge to try to turn a fledgling company around (as you did with T-Mobile), but there's no need to go and sign your soul away to a SoftBank entity.

    Don't want to see john go but I think mike will do a good job taking over.

    I think john can choose a better place to go to than that. If moving on that would be my last choice

    You are clueless. Wework has money and they want it to fix the company like he did with T-Mobile. Don't forgot TMO was dieing when he first started.

    That's the problem. If Legere jumps ship, there isn't anyone else in the industry, unless perhaps they pass the baton to an internal person such as Sievert or Neville Ray to take over ala Apple (Jobs to Cook). If they don't, then I can see this merger slowing down and 5G will not be as readily available than if Legere were at the helm. I think that Leger would stand to make a boat load more money by staying with the New Tmobile than jumping to some other company at this point in his life. I've really only stayed with T-mobile over the last couple of years because I like Leger's vision for the company and the wireless industry and the fact that he has made wireless more affordable with more perks. If that mantra goes away with someone else at the helm, I'd reconsider my business relationship with T-mobile and probably consider AT&T again.

    I think mike will be a pretty good replacement though. Not quite as charismatic as John and maybe not the salesman but I think he’s capable of doing the job and can continue whatever uncarrier stuff they may do (if any) at that point

    I’ll be surprised if John leaves any time soon especially during the T-Mobile sprint deal in process, but crazier things have happened

    His contract doesn't end until April, so he will not be leaving before then. He will not leave until the merger closes.

    That’s good.

    Hopefully he will stay. If I was him I would work out a deal to stay on as a consultant, with no travel requirements, mike can run it, John can give creative input and still be the video voice of the company

    They could work it out where he wouldn’t step on mikes toes but would complement what mike brings to the table while still adding that uncarrier vibe people are used to with John

    At a minimum keep him on the board etc. not sure what dt policies are for something like that but he could have his cake and icing at this point with T-Mobile

    Yes, I suspect that there will be a settlement on the proverbial "courthouse steps." It'll be a win-win for T-Mo and the States.

    Don't think its necessary at this point. After the recarrier launch event the AGs are grasping straws and haven nothing to go by but the generic hurr dur jobs when sprint is bleeding those jobs as is. Building an argument at this point is a pure nightmare for AGs which I think is what tmobile banks on. If you cant build a case, you have no case.

    Besides, they might have strings and snuggles with the judge. If they don't make any more deals, clearly they're signaling pure confidence that this case will get overturned.

    I think the states will try but seems like their case has pretty much dwindled at this point.

    With what T-Mobile offered the other day I think it really pokes holes in the states case but they seem arrogant enough to try and get more concessions out of T-Mobile even with a weak case. I could still vision them trying to bargain up until the court date
