Complete and total disregard for DCO. People get Covid like crazy and not a word from above. Just keep coming in. Don't worry if you get covid you can use your vacation time while the rest of us stay home. You should all be ashamed for the way you... — read more
Topics regarding layoffs at Sungard Availability Services
I am curious if this kickoff is giving you more confidence in leadership and future? what are your thoughts on what you heard?
Would be pretty par for the course for this POS company
With MR donating the cash saved from ridiculous garbage like stupid holiday parties to the Red Cross, can we assume our raises are going/went to the same place? BOY AM I EXCITED FOR THE ALL-BUNS-ON-TOILET SALES KICKOFF SUMMER CLEARANCE MARCH... — read more
I’ve always been hesitant to move on. I enjoyed working with my coworkers and have gotten comfortable over the years. Luckily, I’ve made sure to broaden my skill set and keep my networking active because you never know what can happen here. So when I... — read more
I am sorry for everyone that has been affected by this round of layoffs. I know it was unexpected - it is always unexpected when you are the one who has been impacted. I wish all of my colleagues who survived nothing but the best and I hope others... — read more
Is it just me, or have we been having what amount to be bi-monthly layoffs this year? It's not exactly two months between each round, but we've had cuts at least five times so far this year. Will this ever stop? How deep do they plan to cut? Will... — read more
I haven't heard anything about more layoffs today, does it mean we were done yesterday?
Can we talk about what groups were laid off .... or general people like a senior director .
Sites are shutting down, assets are being sold and now, the annual happy holiday layoffs ...which will continue. This company doesn't give a sh– about its employees. If you're smart, you'll get out now.
Have a great extended weekend and enjoy all of the merriment and family time wherever possible. First course of action on Monday morning should be ‘ I need to get my resume/cv updated and out there pronto ‘. Sungard Hunting season is now... — read more
Are we sure everybody has been notified and there'll be no more cuts next week? Do we even have any idea how many were let go in this round and what departments were hit other than IT? There just seems to be so little information available that I... — read more
The promised November layoffs have started.
Am I the only one left? or Does no one care anymore? Truth be told I would rather someone give me good news. A reason to be optimistic. I am not on here to vent rather grasping for something to be positive about.
Seriously .. is there any worse company out there? For 10 years going in thinking any day could be your last
People are you kidding me? The one guy that cared about this place? It’s like we are trying to fail!!
This should not come as a surprise to anyone who has been there for a while. If you are lucky enough to get your name called at the next round of cuts, take the money and run as the severance packages will start to shrink more and more. Also... — read more
Yes my friends November we will have lots of layoffs. DCO/RSOPS. Company is doing so good we need to cut cut cut.
Would really like someone, anyone, try to explain the differentiation SG brings to what is essentially an out of the box solution from Dell. Are we back to trying to secure 30% margin on someone else’s service offerings again ! Oh wait. Colo... — read more

Where's OPG? Isn't this new and exciting? Isn't this going to right the ship? Maybe if the whole team wasn't outsourced. Maybe. The real question is: Why would anyone trust Sungard to manage their cloud infrastructure?
I'm guessing so since there have been moves in the PODS. Is it CR or PUNE or US or all three. Keep your head up and watch out.
No one likes working here anymore. Stop trolling us on a layoff site.
To all those that question my employment... Yes I am still here. To all those that question my outlook... Yes I am still positive. To all those that question my commitment... Yes I am still committed 100%. My Employment: I work for a firm that... — read more
Maybe he’s come to his senses? Maybe he’s embarrassed he defended such a pathetic company for so long?
It was terrible when I left 2 years ago ... can’t imagine what it’s like now ... what kind of Positive BS are they trying to spin these days?
I'm no longer with SGAS, but was there for a long long time. Did layoffs happen in UK? Just wondering cuz I thought UK was the one bright spot and heard they might be spun off at some point. Thx.
Somebody mentioned June layoffs, are they supposed to start this week or sometime later in the month?
As we bid farewell to our colleagues who were pushed in May, it is worth serious consideration as to which names will be pulled from the hat as of next week. Could be any one of us.
Sungard is so badly mismanaged that a complete crash is inevitable. COVID-19 just hastened us on our way to that point. But the management is sure using it as an excuse to justify the poor state of the company - as if everything is the pandemic's... — read more
401 employee match to 50% - oh well at least it's not Zero. And for those of you sitting on the sideline asking why we don't leave and cut our losses...would you leave in the current state the economy is in? Besides they said they will revisit these... — read more
Anyone tired of these BS “partnerships” that go nowhere? Come up with ideas on your own for Godsakes!
He was brought in less than 1 year ago, now he's gone. Anyone know the inside scoop as to why a high-ranking sales and marketing executive like BC left? Or did he get fed up with the losing proposition called "Sungard Availability Services"?
Does anyone know what the Unitas deal means in the long run?
Looks like pre-sales support but I am sure they'll come for network as well.
