Goodbye old guard

Recently heard after a--&C Health progress update - If you are a 10+ year employee you are part of the problem. Get out now and leave on your own terms or SS&C will show you the door with just a 2 week severance. Clients don’t want you and neither... —  read more

Ss&c health who's buying?

Word on the street is the new healthcare ceo got mr bs a seat at the dinner table with ibm. Lots of medical data on the heathcare side of ss&c for data analytics. Ss&c lacks the innovation and talent to put it to use. If only a company existed like... —  read more

July 1st

July 1st is approaching. If no major layoffs by then it will have been a whole year anticipating when the next major RIF is without it happening. In my book that put's Stone a step above Hooley. Time will tell just how good of a ceo he is not only... —  read more

Layoffs and DST closing is a blessing

DST was always known as a sweatshop with poor management, and abusive management. Nowdays some of the stunts the managers pulled would be considered "hostile work environment" and there would be lawsuits filed. DST could have been a much bigger and... —  read more

This is a recipe for failure

Two people started working in our department in April as replacements for a few who decided to leave this mess on their own, and I'm appalled at how little they know and how little they're trying to learn. Is this where we are now? Is this the best... —  read more

DST needs to stop getting rid of people

We can't lose anymore people and continue to function properly. Too many people have been laid off, too many have left on their own, and too few were brought in to replace them. We are doing the work of two-three people each and if we have to pick up... —  read more

Dst was a joke management wise

dst layoffs are direct result of bas management. Missed indusrty standard of sub accounting. Promoting executives lovers was always a bad move. Rockhurst infatuation was silly. As a result, dsr is gone

Why are they hiring if there are layoffs coming?

They just hired someone in my group. She is going to be really upset when she realizes what a mistake she made accepting the job. No one in my group is happy. No raises and now a new employee to fight for the work with. Fml —  read more

Is there a way out of this for DST?

I honestly don't see a way out of the mess we are in right now. There were times before where proper decisions by management could have changed the trajectory of this sinking ship, but I think those times are gone for good now. Am I wrong? Is there a... —  read more
