Not the time for blame

Dst's philosophy....blame first. Find blame for any problem. Much later if ever...collaberate with staff to correct system problem.

DST South (Sprint) just layed off 465 in its OP location

"DST South" aka "Sprint" just cut 465 people in O.P. KS. Nows the time to buy a house in Blue Valley - at least 200 homes will be agoing on the market! DST is a fine organization to hang at, just don't take it seriously. Its a nice place to hang for a year or two till you find your dream job. That's what I did.

I think DST is a typical place - get what you put into it

Its an average company. Work hard, treat fellow employees with respect - then you get somewhere. People do have a reputation here. If your a great person everyone knows it. If your a jerk people know it. How you treat others WILL impact your success. Nobody likes a jerk.

I too like the DST

Yes, I too like the DST. Its is a stable and well planned organization. The task is clearly cut, the work is there. In addition it allow me to live inside the United States of America. If you have lived outside of the USA, then you know why I value my residency here. There is no corruption, there are laws to protect all classes of people. I am treated as a human being. That's all I ever dreamed for.

DST is a great place to work

I have been treated very well at DST. Have received promotions almost every year, nice raises, and have been given positions of responsibilities even before I was ready for them-so I could grow into them. I am constantly commended. Help is always there from my superiors. The key to success is to let it be know you "enjoy" this company. To many people here make negative comments about DST and believe me those comments are noted and remembered. So if your a malcontent, whiner, outwardly unhappy - don't expect DST to go out of its way for you. Team players are appreciated.

What happened to the DST "Blacklist" of former employees?

I worked for a placement agency. DST had a blacklist of former employees not eligible to re-hire. Kelly Holder had it in her desk drawer. Does DST still have a blacklist policy? Kelly gave me a copy but I misplaced it. It was many pages long with the "reason" for disliking the former employee. Seemed very petty to me.

HR = Nazi's

It probably was DST's HR that took down the posts about Marc Fagan. You have to understand, the whole reason an HR department even exists at any company is to prevent and minimize expensive litigation against the company. HR people know this. I noticed that the post calling for all complaints against Marc Fagan was also removed. So it's not just a slander or defamation thing, it's move to protect the company. Maybe HR recognizes Marc Fagan to be a lawsuit waiting to happen (sexual harassment, discrimination, etc), and taking down those posts was a way of preventing or delaying that. Either way, somebody's feathers were ruffled. Somebody's cage got rattled - just from some anonymous post about an idiot. That shows the power of words and ideas. That's pretty cool.

My husband was treated poorly here at DST

My husband was treated poorly by DST. He is happy not working here. The management is poor at best. Some have been here since the 1970's. Its supposed to be a Rockhurst crowd, but even their grads get little respect.

There are books on how to make a manager look really bad

Just go to the net or a bookstore. many books on how to ruin your manager's career. at a former job, I waited till the manager left for lunch (his PC was still on) and using his PC, sent a nasty email to the President of the firm, criticizing all management decisions. Then after it was sent, I deleted it from the "sent mail" mailbox. He was fired the next day, never knew what hit him. Next manager was a sweetheart and was so kind to all...... Its worth taking action to get a good result in the longrun.

Tritt's wife

Tritt's wife, Louise was a $7.50 per hour customer service rep in mutual funds area, then met him and she became a manager at DST. Then married him after the catholic church annulled his first marriage and that's the whole gold story! She liked how ostermeyer ran his motors in reverse on his boat to spin it fast at the lake.

Tritt is leaving finally ! Its time!

About time he is leaving. He has been at DST way too long in my opinion - just cause dave ostermeyer liked him is no reason to decide back in June 1981 that he should stay forever and be promoted at every opportunity

1985 DST stock IPO

Correction: It was 1985 when DST issued stock for $20. per share, then it dropped to $10.00 and DST bought it ALL back. Hallmark Cards employees had their pension administrator put a sizeable amount in DST stock. Guess what the drop did to their defined pension accounts. Google the story - its interesting and I think Hockaday was instrumental in it......

Go to thread not kicking buttsssst, Monday 01/20/14 23:04:39 UTC

We are not kicking but on Wall Street = DST Stock is a laggard

Someone posted DST stock is kicking butttts? No. Look at a 8 year chart, or 10 year - we are only now recovered and at the point in stock price that equals past levels. The stock went down about 50% and has just recovered to pre crash. Onlt DST stock did it after all the other big names - they were back to normal 2 years ago. Check out Goldman Sachs - its stock bet us, Ford- it beat us, Facebook, Twitter, even the S&P 500 index beat us to the pre crash levels. Don't forget DST issued stock in 1994 in an IPO, then 1 year later when it was 50% lower the company bought it back and went private. Ask those investors how they felt losing 50% and not being able to even hold the stock to hope it recovered. Look at a long ranger chart. Compare the stock to others.....

i am completely shocked

Jim Cramer, the CNBC news correspondent, named DST Systems as one of his 10 best stocks to invest in, in his new book (get rich). Of all the thousands of stocks, in new industries, doing inventive things, he picks slow moving DST? Most of his hype is that DST will be sold soon, or taken private. I can think of 400 other stocks that I would invest in first....just my opinion

I luv DST Systems Inc

Its the greatest place to work. Others hire the uneducated. At least co-workers are clean, educated, and for the most part, more than of average intelligence. Try working for a company in the south, where people are unable to pronounce common works. Example: Ask is spoken as AXE. "He Axed me where the tape was". Try working in the south......its sad
