How to slow down off shore hiring / prevent layoffs at DST!

1. Don't write any code comments, or if you do, don't explain how things work 2. Create silos of local work groups and work face to face.. No email on how/what you've done. 3. If overseas teams ask you how to do things, give a broad brush overview, no details. 4. Write more complicated code that is ... read more

When you have an exit interview...

When you leave DST (realize they will never hire you back) and have an exit interview - name THE BAD APPLES in your group! Say something like "just between you and me, my supervisor John badmouthes DST upper management and has no real loyalty to the company". Of course HR will believe it (its human ... read more

At what DST location do you work? The experience varies greatly for different branches of the company.

If you post something about working at DST, please mention the division or location, or at least which country or state you work(ed) in. DST is SO HUGE! What is true for one location may not be for another. So much of your quality of work life has to do with your direct supervisor/manager/division. ... read more

I used to send racey notes to the best looking women

I used to send real racey note to the best looking women working at DST and sign my bosses name to them. It gave him a bad shirt chasing rep.

many layoffs I haft seen

Ahh....payback is sweet

Yes I was not given the recognition I deserved at DST. So I found another job (easy to do). Then in the exit interview I acted very grateful, but told the H.R. rep and in writing, that my manager hated DST and not a team player. Which was true 100%. Team player means you support and cheer on ... read more

Good ol boys club

At the DST Engineering dept in El Dorado hills, the good ol boys club is alive and well. Oh sure, MF will hire a token non-white person every now and then, just to keep the HR dept off his back and shut them up. But make no mistake, good ol boys get hired, untouched thru layoffs, promoted. That is ... read more

This company is going down the tubes!

The stock price has dropped. The stock has a "Sell" recommendation now. The CEO Steve Towle has just dumped about a half a million dollars worth of his stock, which shows what direction he thinks it's going. If I owned stock in this company, I'd sell. If I still worked there, I'd be looking for ... read more

Liquidation of the ESOP????

The board/management has long used the ESOP to effectively keep a large portion of the corporate stock off of the market and thereby within their control. Is the rumor of the ESOP being liquidated soon true? Have others heard this rumor?

A very poorly managed company

A very poorly managed company. DST Output has a well known, well deserved reputation for layoffs. Every few years they decimate large departments. In between the layoffs, they over-hire. After all, there is no one to layoff if they aren't hired in the first place. But it's a wildly swinging ... read more

Bob Gould award?

Nothing wrong with incenting the youth at colleges. But wasn't Bob a very short-timer at DST? 1 to 2 years max? And he made changes that a lot of people and management didn't exactly like? Changes that didn't pan out in the long term? Whats the deal with the award "still" in his name? A lot of DST ... read more

DST Output name change

You know, just changing the name from DST Output to DST Customer Communications does not remove the stench associated with this division. It's still crappy old Output to me. I look forward to the day when this whole division gets shut down and everyone there gets their walking papers.

There is a "city wide" employment agency "blacklist". Recruiters all know each other, go to networking events, pass each other names of good candidates for referral fees. However if your a "bad apple" most all employment agencies will know that - even if you have not sent them an application. There ... read more

More to come.

More layoffs coming. One business unit was told by management how bad it was in an effort to be "transparent". The next slide in the presentation was three new V.P.'s were just hired. No loyalty, no promoting from within. One business unit promoted 5 men last summer, no women. Also, if you are over ... read more

DST Managers should never do this!

Never make a person pay for a mistake they didn't make! Blame the specific person that actually wrote the bad code - not someone else! Because employees will undermine a Manager who mindlessly blames the wrong associate. I have seen it many a time!

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.
