I feel like a huge weight has been lifted off my chest.
Please say it isn't so, reductions to the relationship and demand team..
I’m burned out. There’s too much to do. I don’t envy the HCL crew I was retained and don’t see reason in any of the madness.
I hope it's just a malicious rumor. However, experience tells me that there is little truth in every rumor. I have heard from several people that there could be layoffs soon. Take it with a grain of salt, however if anyone has more information... — read more
How long will it take for Ascension to clinch their a** cheeks, suck up their pride, admit they failed AT and hire some secretaries to beg and plead for the loyal associates that grinded it out for 10+ years to come back? HCL has no clue what... — read more
Get to your cover letters. There’s a storm coming and it’s about to change a lot of sh-t
"A Stat investigative report says that Ascension, the country’s largest Catholic health system at 140 hospitals, is running a $1 billion private equity operation like a Wall Street firm rather than as a passive investor. The article notes that the... — read more
Does anyone else happen to work more than ever and get more criticism than ever? My manager seemed to like it better when I wasn't trying so hard. I fear this might be a warning that I will soon lose my job. I’ve literally been criticized for... — read more
I was very happy when I got a job here, but now is the time to look for something else. In general, I am comfortable here, but judging by the fact that there is no stability in this company, it is not possible to grow a career here. So I think... — read more
I am definitely disappointed and I have to find a way to get out of here as soon as possible. Am I really asking too much if I would like to have a supportive boss? The one who will not harass and hinder me with his meaningless micromanagement, but... — read more
It is not uncommon for a company to make a decision that turns out to be a total failure, after which they change their strategy and try to make a good move. However, what is happening here is that they are constantly making mistakes, that is, they... — read more
People tend to criticize a lot and always have complaints, but rarely does anyone offer any solution. I'm thinking what would I do here if I were one of the top dogs, something that would make me happy and my employees and the shareholders? Is that... — read more
Why does it seem to me that after the last great layoffs, those who survived would prefer that they were cut as well? My opinion is that it is worse here now for those who survive layoffs than for those who are cut. Everyone who got cut is now in... — read more
Yes / No
I read there were many memorable moments lately....those of us that were canned after decades of service would love to hear how things are going. So we can laugh in Ascension's general direction.
Many people got pulled into Gerry's office in the last month. Employees with a management line to HCL are getting blamed because HCL cannot perform. Service Now metrics are a disaster. Non AT employees are screaming because they can't care for... — read more
Really? You didn’t see this coming?
What do you expect to happen when you replace seasoned professionals with rank IT amateurs.
Severance won’t last long and neither will I.
Thanks for all of the hard work everyone has done in the last three months. All of the transition meetings, application summaries , and all of the run book validations and acceptances. I don't even want to know how many spreadsheets I had to edit in... — read more
There was a major outage today on an a web facing ascension health system today. The system appeared to suffer a SQL compromise from missing patches that resulted in admin accounts that were not created by ascension having potential access to... — read more
As I search for a way to exit, I wonder every day why this is no longer the place it used to be. What happened? It used to be great to work here. Or at least it was great for me. I was fairly treated and my work was appreciated commensurate with the... — read more
The biggest sign that the company is sinking and that no one should have high hopes is when those who were in a slightly better positions here start to leave. A friend of mine and a longtime colleague who, say, was more comfortable here than most... — read more
Most of, if not all, the operations staff (server, storage, virtualization, networking, etc.) all got moved off the Ascension contract and had to find other jobs within HCL. They switch you to hourly so you leave or you starve to death. That is how... — read more
I came back here to give a little support to people who are worried about being cut. In my case, it's the best thing that could have happened to me. At the beginning I thought that I would have the worst case scenario, that I would not find a job for... — read more
More cuts coming to works on Ascension contact? Deeper cuts, cuts that hit bone?
What I resent is that working at Ascension is always stressful but it doesn't have to be. I’ve done the same job at other companies and I’ve never been in a more stressful environment than I’m here. The situation gets worse as colleagues leave. I... — read more

It is impossible for a company to treat its employees in this way without regretting it in the end. I wish that would happen. Only then will they realize that we are not all so replaceable. In any case, we can always find better jobs, but Ascension... — read more
That you got used to being treated poorly. No more: No money! No promotions! No raises! No more hollow hypocritical prayers and reflections! No more clueless leaders loving on their Peletons and lake houses on open meetings following major RIF... — read more
I don't know if better off are those who will be laid off or those who survive. Given that Ascension is increasingly showing that it doesn’t value any of its employees and that they view us as an expense, I’m afraid of what survivors are yet to... — read more
How many people have they decided to drop their job grades after being so humiliated? I don’t know, but I would immediately start thinking about new possibilities. On the other hand, that might be exactly what they wanted. Maybe their goal is to get... — read more
Anyone hearing anything about it?

The sooner you face it, the sooner you can start making plans for your career outside of Ascension. There are still plenty of companies here that respect knowledge and experience over saving some money in the short term by hiring cheaper workers... — read more
I think many jobs could have been saved. And it's not just how many people are cut, what makes this whole thing a lot worse is that they cut some of the best people every good company would strive to keep. Are all these cuts really necessary? — read more
