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
They must be turning things around!!
I've been hearing about more layoffs lately, does anybody here know more about what's coming our way?
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
How long till Dell just takes all managed service business?
Any bets on how many will get laid off on Monday 8/2? My bet is on SgAS filing bankruptcy on Monday.
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
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
Sales so far this quarter are dismal, the numbers are not close. Going to take a miracle in the next two quarters. Somehow they will put a twist on it.. let's hope for better days.
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 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
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
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
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
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 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
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
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
Nope not a sole.
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
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.
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
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
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
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
Don't think anyone posts anymore, because it's old news. Move on people nothing new to see here.
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
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.
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.
Another today. I was let go. Bye and thanks for nothing.
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
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
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
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
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.
I worked for SG for over 12 years. I watched the company go down the drain failing to keep up with competitors while charging a premium. I saw customers leave in droves for better solutions and better pricing. I watched SG lay off their Sr. Engineers... — read more
My job here has been reduced to constantly thinking about when the next round of layoffs is and whether I will be axed this time. In the meantime, I am totally demotivated to work. How can you be fully productive if you constantly have to think about... — read more
