Are there an layoffs in the Clover business unit?
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

2000+ layoffs begin today Friday May 8th throughout the company. Since KKR acquired this company in 2007 there have been more than 15 layoffs approximately 2 per year. Zero job security, raises every 3 or 4 years if at all, no 401k match and high... — read more
The package is good, yet 150+ folks are being let go.
All money to KKR, peanuts for employees, underpaid, overworked, discarded.
Once again FDC, led by Frank Bisignano and Big Bank executives elected to lay off an estimated 20% or 3,000 business consultants and mid level managers. Wall Street analysts demanded expense reductions to combat low stock price...their way is to just... — read more
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!

Anybody has more info on this?
We sacked over 500 people in Denver back in late 2013. Things will continue to go south in 2014, I can guarantee you this.
What are your thoughts on PTO: Paid personal days and paid vacation time are both available to First Data owner-associates. 2 weeks PTO, accrued - no rollovers. 2 wks 1-5-; 6-10 ; 3 wks ; 10+ 4 wks. A few years ago they actually took 3... — read more
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.
First Data hired a bunch of people then sold them the dream they will go far with the Company Notttt! Good thing a few got smart and left before it got worse, for those who had no choice but to stay and gave it their all were the Victims. Now they... — read more

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
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

That's the rumor, cannot confirm it but I heard it from 3 different and not connected sources, all internal First Data corporate
Anybody has more info, I left in 2011
