    I have seen it and I have lived it.

    Company A buys Company B.

    The folks who are in Company B are almost always let go.

    Rarely does one survive at Company B unless they have some specialized skill that nobody has at Company A so they have some job security for the time being.

    But for the rest, get your resume ready and hit the road looking for a new job.

    and something interesting.

    Simpsons predicted this back in 1998.

    from qz,
    In a 1998 episode of the series, “When You Dish Upon A Star,” The Simpsons joked that 20th Century Fox, the company’s movie studio, had fallen under the umbrella of Disney. A scene takes place at the Fox studio lot, where a sign can be seen that reveals the company is now “A Division of Walt Disney Co.”

    I have a family member who does work with Disney and there are a lot of people nervous about this merger.

    When will Disney and AT&T be considered a monopoly and the feds step in? Just wondering what the criteria is as it seems a good bit like "Ma Bell" back at the height of their time of expansion.

    Yes, there are other studios and "telephone" companies but none that are quite the size of Disney and AT&T.

    I'm not sure how this merger got approved. I think a lot of palms were greased!
