You are not safe!

This company is going down and the Executive are basically milking the hell out of it. Bunch of thieves and no real respect from clients. The funny thing is all clients know how this company is sinking and the sales folks still required to sell!!... —  read more

Nobody is forcing anyone to stay employed here

Nobody is forcing anyone to stay employed there. The state of layoffs isn’t new, it might be hitting departments or geographies that it didn’t before - but nobody that has worked there more than a year or two should be shocked that it happens. If you... —  read more

Being forced to wait once again

This is getting really tiring. Once again we find out about layoffs and once again we are forced to wait for days (weeks) to find out any more details. The latest news is we'll know more by the end of this week, but I'm not willing to bet on it... —  read more

Dishonest death

I never understood why management would not be honest about the ominous situation at AS. Everyone was aware that the company was broken, but there was never the leadership driven urgency of fixing things now or never. It is as if management feared... —  read more

annual self assessment

Nearly half the company hasn't completed a self assessment. What does that tell you about the morale around here? Are we expecting a salary freeze next year and the performance review makes no difference????

We need to be realistic

People are very nervous about this assessment. Having an external firm come in to assess jobs and productivity is not a good thing in a Chapter 11 company. I am all for positivism, but a little realism in the mix doesn't hurt. These people are going... —  read more

Are we done with layoffs for now?

Things seem to be looking up all around. Even office morale has improved significantly in the past month or so. Does this mean we can finally relax and fully devote ourselves to doing our jobs without a threat of layoffs hanging over our heads?... —  read more

AGB Out!

The annoucement of his termination said 'We need to get closer to our customers' .... not exactly a compliment to the former EVP of Sales on his way out ... ouch! He claimed he had a 'turn around' strategy, RH didn't realized AGB was talking about... —  read more

Deutsche Bank

Be interesting to see how the layoffs at Deutsche Bank have an impact on Sungard and their master plan. Could end up being quite the game changer if they ditch some sites.

Did AS get his severence rescinded?

Considering he sent his 2nd company in a row to ch 11 AND admitted he wasn’t keeping up with technology for the past number of years there’s NO way he should receive millions of dollars
