SGAS is circling the drain, it’s pretty obvious. You all need to leave as soon as you can, on your own terms. Management is only concerned with numbers, not people. And they have proven over the years that they are not able to right the ship that... — read more
There’s no logic when it comes to cuts, but one recurring pattern is those who are laid off are mostly best workers, the ones this company needs the most.
How many people are here just because they were hoping for severance pay? I don’t know how good that is, given that it’s questionable how smart it is to miss a solid offer because of severance. Some say they are satisfied and some that they are not... — read more
Been at Sungard for around 8 years and I'm pretty sure my name is on a list somewhere ready for the next round of lay offs. Been at risk for a while as my role can easily be offshored to Pune or CR. Should I stay till I'm pushed out? Leave now and... — read more
I left 8 weeks ago but in all honesty, it feels like I've been gone for 8 months at least. I was on the fence for a long time - I'd lie if I said it was the worst place to work. Still, there were enough downsides (management through fear and bullying... — read more
My colleagues are optimistic people who think we won't get cut, however, we have almost no work to do! I’m not exactly a workaholic, but this has become worrying because I don’t believe Sungard will continue to pay people who don’t have work to do... — read more
I've been hearing about more layoffs lately, does anybody here know more about what's coming our way?
How long till Dell just takes all managed service business?
If you haven’t had your resume updated and out there already, now is the time to make this your number one priority. Do not wait for the rug to be pulled out from under your feet. Especially now while it can be done under the cover of ‘ working from... — read more
This place is not good for your health. It's a high-stress environment with high levels of pressure for very little reward. And in all honesty, I don't see a way for things to improve anytime soon - or ever. I'm looking for a new job primarily to... — read more
You can twist it anyway you like managers can say whatever they want to say CEO can say whatever he wants to say the bottom line is they can't say I'm losing money in buckets so take picture any way you want at the bottom line is it's over just a... — read more
Any bets on how many will get laid off on Monday 8/2? My bet is on SgAS filing bankruptcy on Monday.
I don’t know, maybe some people are overwhelmed with work, but in my case, I wish I was busier. I've never had less work to do. Once upon a time, I would have looked forward to periods when I had less work to do, but now it's not like that at all and... — read more
It depresses me a little that I still haven't been able to get an offer. I've sent a bunch of apps and I'm not that picky, but it looks like I will have to send out more. Out of sheer curiosity I wonder what is the ratio of apps that people send vs... — read more
Found out SGaS got of their lease at Wayne in April I mean the 30 some left would not have mattered, the "C" level are not there anyway. I contacted the receptionist and others they had show up every day while even closed. They were not really blind... — read more
I worked for the Inside Sales team in Wayne a few years back. Had a few roles with them. They had a great team with an awesome culture. Are they still around? They always performed well so I have to imagine by now it’s the biggest sales team. — read more
I know of two managers who walked away in the past few weeks. These guys had it made so I doubt they found better positions than they had here. Which is why I'm now worried. Do they know something? Is something major coming that we should all be... — read more
They must be turning things around!!
I was with Comdisco prior to it being taken over by SG. Wonder what would have happened with the company if NP wouldn't have managed it down the sh-----. They treated their employees well, over time paid time and a half and countless other benefits... — read more
I try to work hard to support the customers we have left and the good employees trying to help them, but we have soo many horrible employees it's impossible. From sales teams driven by managers who don't give an F%$# about what is suitable for the... — read more
Nope not a sole.
The layoff process in the US is heartless and brutal. I was told with zero emotion. Not even a thank you for the many years I worked hard for the company. My a--ho-e manager gave me less than five minutes to gather my things and badgered me the... — read more
Upper upper upper management is a joke the only thing they're trying to sell is you on believing they're trying to sell product
Some say they got notices about layoffs completely unexpectedly, and I knew long ago that I would be told that I am no longer needed here. The behavior of the manager had changed greatly and I had a great sense of what was to come. You should... — read more
Unfortunately, I don’t think they even bothered to try to prevent layoffs. It always happens, people think that there is a way and that if they try harder, they will be able to keep their jobs. On the other hand, those at the top don't seem to care... — read more
As an employee of SG - the animals are running the zoo. So many things day-to-day that I could comment on. Believe it or not, there's still a core group of people who care and they handle the issues that they can. That being said, it feels like a... — read more
I'm newish here, so I'm not sure how layoffs work. In other companies I worked for, Friday was never a layoffs day. I don't know why, but that was simply the way things were. Is it the same case with Sungard? Or is there a chance that we might see... — read more
Another day, another lay off. My number came up today. Box coming tomorrow. Relieved to be out of the sinking ship, but feel for my coworkers and friends leaving behind.
Don't think anyone posts anymore, because it's old news. Move on people nothing new to see here.
It seems to me that those at the top care more about everything other than having a product that someone would want to buy? They don't seem to have any vision at all. Without a good product it is impossible to hope for anything good. It is sad how... — read more
Looking for a new job has become a priority for me, because the situation here, at least for me, has become unbearable. I know a lot of people who send applications and who, like me, can’t wait to leave this company. I would like to know what people... — read more
More layoffs more lost customer's and upper management says nothing. Except here is your pink slip!! What is next? Can't be good. But then again it's irrelevant.
Another today. I was let go. Bye and thanks for nothing.
Just heard from former SGaS co-workers. Today was another round and they are telling them there will, of course, be another one in August.
I ask out of curiosity: is anyone trying to keep their job in this joke of a company? It’s nice to go to a better company, but I can’t believe that those who are expecting layoffs and have no other option are not even trying to keep their current... — read more
Fellow Sungardians (Past and Present) I felt the need to post one final time as some have requested. The reason for my absence is that I am no longer with SGAS and did not want to continue to post as I felt it would be disingenuous. I was given... — read more
I miss the days when people were not jumping for joy if they found a new job and were able to leave this place. It wasn't always like this. I remember when people actually liked coming to work and were not daydreaming about being laid off. It makes... — read more
There are more and more rumors of imminent layoffs, but I try not to worry at all. This is just a shadow of the former company anyway. I prepared myself mentally that I could very easily be the target. Everyone I know who got laid off earlier says... — read more
I just got let go by SunGardas, hold on. I was only there for 6 years but some co workers that were let go had many more.
Although there are fewer and fewer of them in SG, there are still many talented people. I’m quite sure some of them are better quality employees than those who have years of experience here. I'm struggling to understand their decision to stay here?... — read more
