We have cloud specialist, who have been helping us close business for years, have been moved to product. How does that make sense? How will I get any help? How will they be able to do that job? Why does the US get to keep one and EMEA has none? ... — read more
Since there were no cuts in December, what are the chances January will also be a month without layoffs? The last cuts I can remember were in November, just a small batch, and before that in October, when just one department was hit if I'm not... — read more
Funny that HG posted on LinkedIn a Senior level job in Business Ops last month. I wonder if anyone actually applied? Also funny that SgAS has literally no one liking or commenting on their Linkedin predictions for 2022. Here's one: layoffs in... — read more
SH? AD? Others, just learned CIO left as well...? Among others?
Don't bother working hard. There's no need. All you have to do is make sure to compliment your boss each day on how great they are, how their ideas are amazing, and how that PowerPoint presentation they made was captivating. That's it. Each time you... — read more
get ready ... sungardas is a scumbag company
I'm thinking, one should be very unlucky to end up feeling nostalgic for his or her job here. I hope there isn't anyone like that? My experience here is such that after quit I want to instantly forget that I ever worked here.
I see that SGAS folks on LinkedIn stating new year predictions This one from me, this will be your last year of being in business
Didn’t really know how to feel today after handing in my resignation onwards and upwards it’s been a blast SGAS goodbye!
SMH. HG on LinkedIn recruiting for a Sr. Program manager. Forget who would take it, but instead of laying off so many people, they couldn't transition one of the many into that role so they could keep their job? I hope anyone who applies for a job... — read more
I can’t believe they plan to stop giving severance pay like some people are saying. Do you think such a scenario will happen? ....... If they change the severance policy, it will be my last day here.
Curious what SG is doing for severance these days. In the past it was 2 weeks per year, then they updated policy down to 1 week per year a long time ago. Is 1 week per year what people got with this recent rif?
I used to worry about being cut and I was very anxious, but now I am completely calm. It’s not worth worrying about something that can’t be changed. Moreover, I think I would like to be on the layoff list because I am sick of this company without any... — read more
Can we say there are more laid off Sungard people than there are employees? Probably. I was laid off earlier in 2021. I am working at a great company in a job that leadership respects my expertise. Not a single meeting with any yelling. My... — read more
In my opinion, the last reorganization was a failure, and this could be an even bigger failure.
I feel sorry for everyone who got cut, I hope everyone will find much better jobs after this. Things should be looked at from a positive side as well, many would not even try to find anything better if they were not cut. For those who will survive... — read more
AD & SH gone- Very late decision, should have happened more than a year ago. KR & his gang of lick as--s, another egoistic bluff master group needs to kicked hard out, they produce nothing but pain. The org was already in the drain since the past 2... — read more
Sooooo many Sungard folks. We've had big cuts before, but the company was so lean, this one cut way to deep. This BU idea, left orgs empty. All of NA work now down to groups of 4, all of UK to be cut in half...i can't even speak. No town hall meeting... — read more
Is the company streamlining or is this just another word for company wide layoffs?
I’m a little disappointed with the progress of my career at SGAS and I'm planning to leave. I thought more effort was needed and that hard work would pay off, but it wasn't the case. Is it possible anymore to grow a career here at all? It looks to me... — read more
I left a while ago and already looking for a new opportunity due to my manager and the inappropriate remarks he makes daily. It's so bad, I'm reporting him to HR when I leave. My advice to you all; do your due diligence on your next opportunity... — read more
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
