Talk about a U-turn

Where is OPG?

Was he Rif’ed..... This site isn’t that interesting without him.

FIght the fight where it matters!!!

This board is about employees finding a common place where they can vent together. I guess sort of like therapy. You cannot complain or vent your fears at the work place so this would be the next best place. This isn't a team building site or a place... read more

CSP are in a precarious position

Why are we still hiring?

Why are there available job posting at Sungard AS right now? Why isn't there a hiring freeze considering what's been going on? What's the point of bringing in new people when we know major layoffs are only a matter of time? This makes very little... read more

Given sgas has not identified any new game changing approach to grow share, the only thing left to grow top line revenue is massive price reductions.... this will lead to more layoffs to reduce cost... dangerous cycle... either sgas gets bought for... read more

Susan lynch expense report emails

Lynch and the other bozos do not adhere to the expense report policie. I see it every day. the limits imposed for meals and travel are not followed by Lynch, stern. Trust me when I say this. As Dwight would say “ FACT. Lynch is a hypocrite.”

Funny Money

18 months ago - "gotta make the books look better for creditors, let's pay people to leave." This week - "gotta make our story look better for purchasers, people are leaving, let's pay them half of their sales comp to stay." The irony is hilarious. 😂

Don’t be surprised!!!

Listen I don’t work at SGAS anymore. I left to go to what I thought was a better place. I was an avid reader and contributor to the posts on this site and quite frankly let it influence me way too much. After being in several roles since SGAS I am... read more

Things are looking up

The end result of the chapter 11 filing is that roughly 2/3 of SunGard's debt will be relieved. Without that debt burden things are looking up. SunGard's new owners understand that SunGard's value lies in the services that SunGard offers as opposed... read more

What's happening at Sungard AS right now?

My dad works there, and he's been a nervous wreck lately whenever I call, but he refuses to admit anything is wrong. I know there were some layoffs and talk of bankruptcy, but for some reason I thought things have settled down this week. Am I wrong?... read more
