Thread regarding Sungard Availability Services layoffs

I am right where I'm supposed to be... Sitting here doing my Job.

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 mindset.

News Flash, We are not... and guess what i am still here, Doing my best to bring value to my customers and support my peers.

I am here, like I was during the last all employee call when I heard our CEO stress his teams focus on determining our future strategy while he reminded us that it wont be a road without bumps. I also heard him say he needs all of us. True this may not mean in our current function as I expect they will find areas of redundancies so they can redirect to new functions as we continue to advance our vision.

I am here, like I was on the day SGAS helped a large client recently recover their environment during an unexpected interruption ensuring there business would resume the following day, The customer claimed to be forever grateful for our teams ability to adapt and deliver when it mattered.

I am here, like I was the day we secured a large new client in a strategic market delivering against our new product line. Yes this customer has since boarded and is in steady state operations.

I am here, Like the day we learned of some areas we were under performing in the eye of the customer. But like I would expect, Service Management partnered with Sales to understand the gap and creatively found away to regain the clients confidence and are satisfied once again.

I am here like I was on any given day. Like I will be tomorrow. To help you understand that yes there are challenges, yes there is some uncertainty. But there will always be opportunity for those that remain positive and steadfast on delivering value.

Thank you~
One Positive Guy

No, it says that people on a site called "The Layoff" are worried about... layoffs

Cwjb - you clearly aren’t on the front lines. Why don’t you check out a data center and see what a ghost town it is? Like someone mentioned earlier ... people are FORCED to work 60-70 hours a week due to layoffs and Pune being so inept. Sounds like you and OPG might be living the good life ... but the rest of the employee and customers are suffering. Right now everyone’s thinking ... will sungard lay ppl off on thanksgiving or cnascthis year.

@11zBCoJy-cwjb,

Understand that no one came into this place with that mentally. This is what happens when a dozen rounds of layoffs has occur in a short period of time. I can literally walk around the office and see how deserted it is.

I find it interesting that all of you Like the (Negative posts) and dislike the (Positive posts). It says much about the personality and emotional intelligence of those participating on these threads.

if you are that disgruntled and negative your probably not that productive during the work day. The company and those around you, who care and are making a difference, will be better off with out you,

US staff is already working lots of forced overtime because the Pune guys they hire after laying off US staff can’t cut it .... but the big wigs are really good at spinning to the bigger wigs and they’re clueless ... . cutting more as the previous poster said .. will be the end

Last post is right. Upcoming layoffs will be severe. And given that resources are already cut to the bone the next layoffs will essentially be a coup de grâce for this place.

I must say, there is something really strange about some anonymous poster on a site LITERALLY called "thelayoff" gaslighting about what great things are happening. Indeed, if all of those great things really WERE happening, there probably wouldn't be anybody checking this site for LAYOFF NEWS to read them!

Can't be positive .....if you are you are sheep, layoffs coming my friends and very soon Nov/ Dec 10% across the board opg and is false hope bs propaganda. Talk to me after the layoffs. Tell your bs to me after layoffs. It's ok to be honest once so why don't you try and be honest and stop the propaganda. Only the fools believe your bs. I see nothing but customers leaving these are facts I see each week with decom tickets. All data centers can see this look at you folks in Philadelphia data centers.
