Topics regarding layoffs at First Data

Marketing coming

My boss and I have been sitting in a whole bunch of integration meetings with the new overlords from Fiserv and they are quite the piece of work. Arrogant, even when you compare with us New Yorkers! The worst one seems to come from Wisconsin but is... —  read more

No regard for people and their livelihood

First Data used to be a great company to work for, hasn't been for quite some time. Damn shame how they discard thousands of their employees at a time. No regard for people and their livelihood! Frank Bisgniano and his ginny cronies can go to hell!

2015 Prospects

Do you think we'll struggle in 2015 as well - I think that we might be turning the corner and that things might be improving. I know many people in Atlanta who still remember layoffs and are freaked out - but I think 2015 should be a fairly good year... —  read more

First Data really Fiserv now

Sounds backwards but FData has and is eating Fiserv alive, so while no terminations noted here, their new subdivision is having massive layoffs which, oh, kinda means Fdata layoffs too.

People are leaving on their own

I'm sure I'm not the only one who's noticed the huge turnover we've been having lately. Not that I'm surprised by it. Working at First Data has been turning less satisfying and less rewarding by the day. If you're salaried employee, you can forget... —  read more

Absolutely no leadership

Don't expect to get any proper support or guidance from leadership at First Data... I've been here for a few years, and one time I haven't seen a manager in 10 months... When you finally do get to see a manager, don't expect it to be the same person... —  read more

First Data Always Lays Off

It's in our DNA and people are used to this - it's the nature of IT, we have expensive staff and the best way to control cost is to let people go. Yes, I heard that 2014 will be rough.
