Thread regarding Sungard Availability Services layoffs

Raises?

Typically take effect 4/1. Are they going to address the issue or just hope that everyone glosses over it?

@8fcx+13Ty8n7c Agreed. Might as well get paid while learning a new skill, or sharpening whatever marketable ones we have.

Let's face it... the smart employees are working just hard enough not to get fired. They're mostly focused on putting the cover sheets on the TPS reports. And updating resumes.

Merit increase budgets are approved by the board. No updates as of yet, so there won't be any merit increases until after the next meeting. I'm not holding my breath.

I haven’t worked at Sungard for some time, but’s it’s very sad to follow how far it’s fallen.

@1lev-you are either a stupid, bootlicking sheep or one of the overpaid and underworked C Level or senior managerial roles.

I don’t think anyone would cry about a 3 percent raise given the years and years of sh–ty raises bookended by years with no raises ....

Not getting a 3% raise, at least, is essentially a pay-cut if you consider inflation.

The worst thing is they don't have the decency to at least let us know what their plans are as usual Sungardas keeps everybody in the dark everything is a secret.

Probably just ignore the whole topic. I have to wonder is M.R. really as bad of a communicator as he appears or does the board of directors have him by the gonads so tight that he can't do anything effectively??

A pay cut? That’s funny. I wonder if the LT will take a pay cut also?

Raises? You've got to be kidding. The market is currently tanking (we may be on the precipice of a recession or already in it), coronavirus' effects just started hitting the US, and our customers are leaving. Also, we could elect a socialist in November whose election would deliver the coup de grâce. Whether we are going to get raises right now is the least of my concerns.

Said differently, employees who are focusing their energy on whether or not they get a raise are missing the big picture. The real question is how long will the company be able to make payroll. If you are counting on a raise, you really need to find that raise elsewhere.

If everyone believes there is a future staying and "working" at Sungard AS, perhaps they should be receptive to a pay cut, across the board, to help their company in all ways possible. Maybe the LT would discuss "profit sharing" for when the business starts growing again. If you are unhappy with the company, then why are you still here. There may be greener grass, elsewhere, for you. If you believe, you have to be realistic and know it takes time and talent and the treasure comes much later, and with sacrifice.
