Topics regarding layoffs at Sungard Availability Services
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????
Leadership team got us to this point. why are they still here?
Hearing of layoffs
Anyone bother reading the sneaky Vanguard email that was sent on Thanksgiving day...... right when it would sail right under the radar of 98% of US employees?!?!?!?!
I wish this was true but I don't want to get too excited just yet. Can anybody confirm this?
Will they call ppl on thanksgiving or Christmas this year?
My position is one of value!! I listen to our customers to understand their perspective. I then coordinate with internal resources to resolve their issue and overcome the challenge. Understand that this job is not done however until I confirm that... — read more
Where is OPG? .... Did he get laid off? Not sure if those are just stupid questions or just wishful thinking. People of a negative mindset often default to wishing hardship on others while assuming others are of the same entitled negative... — read more
Hasn’t been around ... was probably someone on the LT who got the boot
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
If you were thinking we were done, think again. I'm not sure if it will happen before the end of the year, but I'm positive more layoffs are coming. And I'm not talking a few people here and there, I think we are looking at another major... — read more
Is CCL BIPS mature enough to be successful at a scale SunGard wants it to function. I keep hearing that it's not.
The momentum is infectious. New customers are signing, Customers are renewing and Projects are completing on time!!! The future is bright
We’ll see in 3 months...
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
Given that every facility and group in the US has been totally gutted ... I’m going to have to say no Customers definitely no longer think so
Just had a refreshing conversation in the elevator with another employee who shared some positive customer feedback. I see positive posts on social media regarding our team making impacts both in the business community. I am learning of continual... — read more
OK, closing another month after filing and guess what... we are all still here. For those of you waiting for some big massive budget cut, focus on something more productive. Sure we will continue to see some churn among our teams. Truth be... — read more
Aside from OPG? I’m guessing the vultures are still looking to strike
What a joke of a post
what was that?
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
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.
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
I applaud all sgas employees that are loyal to the company, unfortunately that affection is not reciprocal with ownership. Any hope of recreating sgas to Fortune 500 greatness is a pipe dream..... get out now and save your’s and your families... — read more
So I was in the middle of doing my daily tasks, when all of a sudden my network id and password were not working, of course the first thing that comes to mind...I'm on the chopping block and start to put my personal belongings in my bag - just in... — read more
Well folks here we are... Closing our first quarter after filing for chapter 11. Below are my thoughts and perspective: Performance: We continue to see improvement on retention. Growth sales are strong in some teams and soft in others. This validates... — read more
Next Layoff = When the next big asset is sold... new owners have a math problem.... they gave up ~$900m in defaulted loans to take over a company that is now worth ~$340m..... these guys don’t lose money and they aren’t in the business of... — read more
I guess you all quit?
Unless layoffs happen in your neck of the woods, you won't find out about them. I find out when I send an email needing something from a coworker in another facility and it bounces back, we are left holding the sh*t until you finally find out who... — read more
Severance is the only thing still keeping me here. If layoffs are done and I'm still here, I have no intention of sticking around. Job market is too good right now to have to suffer through stress caused by the decisions made by our inept management... — read more
It took about a month for the RIFS to surface. Any one drinking the cool aid that the Bankruptcy was just a Balance Sheet Exercise was not really thinking. Teams were given a target to begin to reduce headcount. And the implementation of those RIFS... — read more
Just check the human resources website they have to update the policy if it's changed when they changed it from two weeks to one week they updated the policy on the HR website so if they've reduced it to no severance they should have changed it or... — read more
So here we are a few weeks from our emergence and gauntlet has been thrown down. I am excited for the changes we are about to embrace. My thoughts: Sales: The continued focus of optimizing our account management will drive a more effective and... — read more
