I start in IT soon and this forum has me nervous I made the wrong choice
Attrition is out of control. Who needs layoffs when people are voluntarily leaving in droves?
Other firms with cloud solutions have added $100M in revenues through organic growth… how’s ye ole technology stack comparing these days? Awd gonna make the turn andbe a success? 20 sales people * 0 product value = 0.
So sorry if it happens, SSC is where tech goes to die…
Focal merit was low and did expect much. Don’t bother with even getting a match on donations as the make a bunch of excuses to not match. $10k match on donating is a joke and you are better off not giving
Is it true more cuts are expected before the end of the year?
Now and in the future. Even when Delta is no longer an issue. If they want to force me, tough luck. I'd rather leave than commute for two hours again each day. I enjoy my newfound free time too much to give it up again. They can't complain about... — read more
You used to be able to count on being promoted if you knew what you were doing and you worked hard. Now the only thing that's required to get a promotion is to get into the good graces of somebody in the management. Basically, brown-nosing is now... — read more
There is already a thread below about layoffs but I wonder if there are any new rumors going around? The atmosphere is very tense and the motivation has never been worse, as far as I can tell.
Last April / May ALL UK based project managers were made redundant (or Severance Agreement for an additional % as HR weren’t capable of managing wide scale redundancies throughout), along with many network resources being offshored to a state of the... — read more
Has anyone heard how this will be enforced or more details, outside of the email communication late last week?
seems like people aren't buying it Rahul. most of my team has departed, the talented ones are long gone, and the ones that are left are actively looking - seems like the senior management could care less - e.g. you got your bonus, stock options... — read more
Many competent SWE in our team have left in the past year. I started working here a few years ago,and I was recently told that I'm important to the team. But my works are just becoming more and more, but got a raise less than inflation last year. The... — read more
The environment at DST since the SS&C takeover seemed promising. There was talk of rewards for hard work and the ability to have a career path. It has evolved into an environment where the hard work has no reward and the promises of financial... — read more
Nice of Billy Boy to outline our flexible return-to-office approach for colleagues in the UK Employees will generally work flexibly, with a combination of work-from-home and in-office environments. Most of you can expect to work from an SS&C... — read more
I’m happy to say that I will be free from SSC within a few weeks and it can’t come soon enough for me. I know a lot of my colleagues enjoy working here and there’s nothing wrong with that. I also know there are other coworkers of mine who would... — read more
I am. Get out as fast as you can. They don’t let you off if you are a customer service representative they were actually fire you and look for a reason
The Health Solutions side is going out of business. Do not believe them. They are working to divest this division now. If you want to be laid off soon, keep believing them saying all is well. They are working with a divesture company now to shut... — read more
there is a growing science in reducing work and cost students today are taught to remain democratic, critical, and forward thinking the definition of experience is as self-referential as the market is increasingly rapid from a google search on... — read more
This way of managing a company is, in my opinion, very short–sighted. They are literally blinded by worrying about the stock price only and don’t see the bigger picture at all. Just my two cents. I started sending applications to as many open... — read more
How certain can we be that layoffs are done - at least for the time being? This has been stressful several days and I can't relax even though its weekend. I hate that my work is affecting me as much as it is, but there's very little I can do to... — read more
After 15 years I’ve been laid off from the company and it’s not enough to say I’m just disappointed. I am more than disappointed. I had much better offers at the time, but back then they did everything to keep me. What a mistake, because I could have... — read more
Does anybody feel comfortable sharing detailed info on what the severance package looks like - including medical? I'm very interested in knowing if it's the same as usual or have they changed/reduced anything due to the pandemic. I wouldn't put it... — read more

Terrible news. I am very sorry for all those who lost their jobs. 500 people is huge. Lucky for me I left here 2 months ago and I am sending my support to all affected. Life is much nicer outside of this company. I wonder if they laid off the best of... — read more
Just curious did anyone here get a raise above 1%. They want you to keep up your numbers and work hard but not much of a motive if all you get is a sh–ty raise every year.
I have been overwhelmed with work for months, so much so that I have almost totally neglected my family and private life. Terrible. I thought it was a passing phase, however day by day I have more and more work to do so I can freely say I work all... — read more
Have you heard anything about March RIFs?
This organization is a terrible place to work.
Anyone heard anything on this front? Last few years they've been awarded in December, guessing by the complete radio silence that's yet another 'benefit' to get eroded this year...
In all seriousness can anyone tell me what they enjoy about the company? My wife was telling me what she loved about her job and the company she works for. I felt envious that she enjoys her work so much. I wish I could say the same. For the life of... — read more
Me and a bunch of my coworkers were starting to fall for the D&T show. Until this happened today I learned they are forcing out one of the best leaders, well respected, professional, dedicated and knowledgeable people to ever work at SS&C Health. ... — read more
If it's just you it's a firing but a bunch of people it's a layoff. SSNC too cheap to give us little people a layoff package but we are dispensable enough for them to make up reason to fire you and pay you nothing. How I missed the chopping block... — read more
Not sure how much the company is impacted by covid 19. I'm not being paid fairly, and my raise is a joke. What about you guys?
So instead of giving you your normal PTO bucket, such as 4 weeks a year or whatever, you can request anytime you want depending on business need. So in my opinion they are screwing you out of your vacation for those of us with high tenure. ... — read more
