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.

I left DST a few years ago

I left DST a few years ago, but found that the managers there had absolute unchallenged authority. Caption Smith of the Titanic had that too!

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.

A letter to HR

You said retaliation is not tolerated, by if you're not going to get rid of Marc Fagan, then retaliation is tolerated. Anything short of firing him is a bunch of empty talk. Marc Fagan still works there and is still Director of Engineering. That's a powerful position. Doesn't he decide who to hire, who to fire, and who to layoff in his dept? That sounds very powerful to me. Marc has been hurting DST for many years. Just look at the list of engineers that he has driven out in the past few years, or even very recently. They are some of the best engineers I have ever met. The ones that he has kept and rewarded with promotions are incompetent idiots. These ones that are kept around, promoted are his friends, camping buddies, golfing buddies. Except for these favored few, he is almost universally despised among his peers and his subordinates. Do your job. Fire Marc Fagan.

Marc Fagan's Removal

I recently complained to the DST Output HR dept in El Dorado Hills aboutMarc Fagan - Director of Engineering. I had various complaints about him, and HR told me that it was taken very seriously by Marc's boss, Frank Delfer. They did their investigation into the matter. The bottom line is nothing happened. Marc is still employed there. It occurred to me that just one voice against Marc is not enough to remove such a powerful person. I am calling for all persons with complaints against Marc Fagan, and who want him fired to contact the DST HR dept and detail out your complaint. Together, we can put enough pressure on DST management to remove this SOB.

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.....

DST's stock is outperforming pretty much all big names

That's why Kramer made his recommendation. I hate our mgmt, I hate layoffs, I hate doublefaced comments and behaviors but you gotta admit that we are kicking butt on the Wall Street...

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'm glad you like your job and working at DST. Good luck in the next round of layoffs. (There's a reason we are discussing DST on a web site called "the layoff.com")

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

remember Russell Stover borrowing the IBM MVS software from DST?

I think they borrowed the IBM MVS software from DST and didn't pay IBM the required software liscense fees until caught. those were the good old days.

Summing it up for Marc

There's good news and there's bad news. First the good news. You have at least one supporter who thinks that you are the best, very familiar with your patents, and is probably not your mom. Now the bad news. Your supporter may harbor a secret gay love for you. (I don't know, maybe this is actually good news for you?) You have multiple individuals who think that you are a horrible evil person. And you actually are a horrible evil person.

Ok, you're probably not really Marc's Mom. My apologies to the actual Marc's Mom. But judging by your seemingly hopeless and unconditional devotion to Marc Fagan, are you his secret lover (at work)?

Marc's Mom again?

Well, Marc's mom. You posted again despite Marc Fagan himself specifically asking you not to. Glad to see you are now curbing your tendency towards swearing. You got me on that patent thing. Good one. The fact that he is named on patents is proof that he must be a good guy. I used to think that he was the embodiment of pure evil. But now that you pointed out that he has patents, well obviously I have to rethink this.

Wow! Marc's Mom really swears like a sailor! But it makes sense that it was his Mom writing the message of support. Nobody else would do that for him except for his mom.
