Topics regarding layoffs at Sungard Availability Services
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?
No one likes working here anymore. Stop trolling us on a layoff site.
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.
Does anyone know what the Unitas deal means in the long run?
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?
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.
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?
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????
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
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.
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"?
Looks like pre-sales support but I am sure they'll come for network as well.
After last week, I wouldn't be surprised to see a continuation. I haven't heard of any cuts yesterday, but Monday is rarely a day for layoffs.
With covid-19 happening and customers/prospects budgets frozen, what’s the rest of the year look like for the business?
One thing you can bet your last buck on is that irrespective of the global concerns around pandemics and economic downturn and social upheaval, SG will be steadfast in its plan to get rid of people. Exits throughout May and into June to adjust the... — read more
How is this viable and cost effective. Let's throw 40 people worldwide wide at a test, instead of having multiply IR tests running. Do the LT know the figures behind how bad MRP is.
Hahaha nice excuse! Will the C-levels still get their annual bonuses and increases?
Funny how many posts there are that call employees disloyal, negative or out of touch on a website focusing on layoffs! Give me a break! The fact that the company spends money on this team that adds no value to this death spiral shows why the... — read more

Typically take effect 4/1. Are they going to address the issue or just hope that everyone glosses over it?
I'm wondering if the company could not turn around its sales performance in one of the best macro economic periods in decades, how are we going to turn it around in a downturn? Thoughts?
By now we should all know the vision of our leadership... It's one that changes who we will be while embracing who we were. Its one that revitalizes our position in the market place while maintaining our value to our legacy customers. Its one... — read more
If you have nothing good to say, say nothing at all. That is the truth. Employees are being misled so that management can hold on to competent employees before they run out of cash. Has anyone looked at how many people are leaving in the... — read more
Leadership team got us to this point. why are they still here?
Let's consolidated all we know about Sungard Availability Services Layoffs 2020 in this thread.
Quick question to the team, or to anyone who might hired a lawyer…. Doesn't SungardAS have to give 60 days notice by labor law (WARN) to all employees being laid off? I am not sure why this is not discussed among people who got laid off as no one... — read more
There were more layoffs yesterday and I'm assuming this week is not done (although I might be wrong.) This round wasn't in the U.S. but that doesn't mean anything these days - I wouldn't be surprised if it spilled over here once again. I'm... — read more
Any word on rasies? Supposed to be in first check in April.
New leadership team are either setting up the books for a sale, or they have been infected with some bizarre brain disease. Customers are deeply unhappy and voice their concerns to their utterly exhausted Service Delivery Managers. Message from the... — read more
