Topics regarding layoffs at DST Systems

Write to the Board of Directors about layoffs

I think in light of the layoffs, its time to write to DST's board of directors. Its clear that DST is in business to benefit stockholders, but maybe more, to benefit top executives. The average worker at DST is not aware that top execs have made... read more

DST receives $380 million in subsidies and tax breaks.

The best feel good story, company receives millions in taxpayer dollars. Taxes paid in part by the employees the company laid off because the company has no money. https://www.cheatsheet.com/culture/states-companies-more-money-poor.html/?a=viewall

Have you no shame?

Here's an idea, let's take salaried employees, downgrade their job titles to the lowest rung, make them hourly and rob them of what they have rightfully earned all these years. Where is the loyalty? If the plan is to make employees WANT to leave... read more

Quincy layoffs

Quincy office is having layoffs. At least 5 gone as of right now. BFDS is in the same building and is also having layoffs today. No idea of numbers there.

Dst is a sweatshop

Policy is you cant travel for work during work hours. Travel on your personal time. Dst doesnt pay for you to travel to client locations. Yet the paid some former hr leader 54 million in stock options. Layiffs are a blessing

Layoffs at DST this week.

Several associates were let go yesterday with a bunch more coming this week. Layoffs always seem to happen when the summer interns have arrived. It sends a poor message to the interns.

Before I got layed off at DST

Before my last day, I did the bear minimum work, since nobody asked the critical things in the hopper I didn't tell them, nor gave any advice so I am sure it promptly blew up the day after I left. All the critical things I had in my head about the... read more

Why are most Dst Managers Xxxholes?

My manager and most others promoted to high levels have reputations for being rude and callous. Those are considered good skills, and they are rewarded for their lack of any feelings toward staff. Why?

DST Systems Layoffs 2017

I need to ask you a few things - are there going to be layoffs, who will be affected, if yes where and when will cuts take place. How about Kansas City.

DST is a "has been" company

Its glory days are over. Competition is strong. No longer have a corner on the market. People like Robert Gould let the established management from Kansas stay. he should have cleaned house and brought in some NY, London, Paris, Zurich and Singapore... read more

Executives Dumping Stock

DST executives sold 36k shares of stock over the past three months before it dropped 15% in one day after the quarterly earnings were released. Insider trading at its best.

Made a fortune hiring people away from DST after I quit

I used to work at DST. Quit. Then hired people away from DST to work at Sprint. Made a fortune doing it. Glad DST didn't make it more attractive to stay, as I would have missed out on making 500K each year. Thanks DST for helping me by underpaying... read more

Layoffs on the 15th?

Rumors are flying. Mood s---s. Not like we are not making a profit, 'cause we are. Just not enough for the shareholders I guess. More offshore coming. This time India. Heard they were after those who make the big bucks this time.

Go to work for Apple

Leave Dst before a layoff. Work at Apple or Microsoft. Even their secretaries are millionaires from their stock options, so look for a future is tic, not data sys tance.

Abandon Ship!

More and more good folks are putting in their notice. The mood in many areas in DST is currently quite gloomy and the disdain for upper management is quite evident. If you stay, hang on!

One person that deserved to be let go

My old manager, who claimed he had been involved in devil worship in California, who slept with his dogs in their cages, who followed the gals in the dept around and took pictures of their tushes with a film camera using Fuji film, who tried to... read more


Who was the DST exec that gave away the bonus income from clients for 99.9% computer up time? He should be fired!!!

Layoff not quite as hug in KC as expected

Around 150 people were let go today. Mostly affected was the Baltimore office for Brokerage Services. In KC, some managers, applications analysts, project leaders, and a few techs that I know of were shown the door. Once this shakes out, I hear there... read more

Software developer

Hearing rumors of layoffs for this week, about 170 people. But not to worry. The 200 new hires in Hyderabad should be able to keep the clients happy.

Well I worked in Robert Tritt's division

And if I had a problem with someone, say a manager that would not promote me, or was playing favorites, all I did was mention to Tritt that "between you and me this manager doesn't respect or like you". That manager's career was then stalled and... read more

About Time?

It's been a few years. Is it about time for another huge devastating layoff?

DST has no data security, and/or doesn't care

I formerly worked at DST Systems Inc. I can tell you one story that sticks in my mind. Had a DST employee that I had met once or twice call me at home one night at midnight. Said she needed my password to access accounts to fix something - hers... read more
