Instead of taking peoples jobs, why don't the big boys take a pay cut? It would hardly make any difference to them. If they are really in a bad position, why not just freeze merit increases and bonuses? This way people can keep their jobs and the... — read more
I heard one biz unit had layoffs 2 weeks ago and they’re looking for 10% reduction across the board. Can anybody confirm this?
I've been sending out resumes left and right, I even branched out into other industries but I haven't been getting many responses. I'm a bit worried that the rumors about layoffs will come true and I'll be stuck with no job for who knows how long... — read more
No doubt SS&C execs are looking gleefully for any opportunity to layoff more people given tech companies are laying off people enmass. By deduction, it's going to come soon, before annual performance review and raises. This will help them manage to... — read more
Last two times they RIFed the second week after the quarter ended. Year/quarter end was last week. Will they repeat it? I sincerely hope not. Hang tight y'all.
I only recently started looking for a job more seriously/actively, and I was surprised that I already received an offer. Maybe it's pure luck, because I really thought that it wouldn't happen so soon considering the poor market conditions. I know... — read more
When you are not being treated or paid fairly, leave. They don’t really care about you or how you feel. Doing a really good job does not pay dividends like it used to. You are an expense to the company and the least amount of expense is better in... — read more
SS&C Overhauls Comp After Say-on-Pay Rejections Each of the firm’s top-paid executives will get a raise next year, a filing shows. By Joe Morris|October 19, 2022
I want to let you know how your being ripped off with pay. They raised the starting pay for SS&C call center reps to $19-$25/hr. I also know people that been here over 5 years and still only make $15/$16hr. its upsetting to pour my life into a... — read more
Even with a mediocre severance, I'd be happy to accept it.
I am not saying that Covid and inflation did not cause any harm, but I still think that this alone cannot be the only excuse for layoffs. Did bad leadership decisions have no effect at all? I don't think so. Maybe it's high time for leaders to... — read more
In my opinion, most of those who are affected are actually employees who knew how to do their job and who performed it the best they could. Those who are not affected are pretenders who do almost nothing. Managing layoffs like this is a recipe for... — read more
Just curious. What is the layoff package. Is it based on your tenure?
Here is my opinion. The datacenter infrastructure is the biggest POS you'll find for a "tech" company. They don't even carry maintenance on their core datacenter switching gear. One time a line card blew on a Cisco switch, and the switch was so old... — read more
When there are more people who say that they would like to be laid off, than those who are anxious and trying in every way to keep their jobs here, maybe it is high time for the leadership to ask themselves where this company is going?
What is the future for the Health and DomaniRX divisions?
Most of the people I know who were laid off yesterday are in their fifties and have been here for decades. Why they would want to get rid of so much institutional knowledge and experience at once is a mystery to me. Yes, they can save a few bucks... — read more
6/22 Layoff Summary: 250 people 7% of SSNC Health. People were notified by phone. Those laid off were notifed by VPs and Directors who they didn't work for. No input from their direct leadership. Managers and supervisors remain... — read more
I heard there are layoffs happening at his moment. Can anyone confirm?
In a previous round, we were told layoffs were coming and our jobs were safe, we were let go the next day. That place spun one lie after another for years, you cannot believe anything they say. This is sadly 100% true. I know somebody who was... — read more
The highest levels of management here are a disaster. I sometimes wonder where we could be as a company if the entire ELT was replaced with competent leaders, but then I quickly remember that the people who are running the place now have destroyed... — read more
So Bill and Rahul want us back in the office 4-5 days each month - they're having a laugh!!
SS&C Completes Acquisition of Blue Prism Group PLC Don't believe what you hear, you will be ripped down and apart, say bye to friends now.
So apparently there are rumors of layoffs impacting the the Health & Pharmacy side of the business. Oddly enough, this comes after the recent townhall where we were told that employee retention is very important to the company. I'm not sure how... — read more
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
