I heard today another layoff is coming after employees return back to offices after the covid-19 work from home eases up. It came from a reliable source so get ready.

Working here has nothing to do with how good you are at your job. Its all about being political and massaging egos.
I hate working here as well. I can’t think of anything good to say about my job or working here.
Agreed, Managers from middle management up are useless. They just spend their day scheduling unnecessary meetings trying to justify their jobs. Focus needs to be on developing modern useful high technology products and supporting the clients not scheduling time consuming meetings where we repeatedly discuss we do not have enough knowledgeable people to support the few clients we still have remaining on 30 year old technology.
Start with middle management and work up the chain. There’s a lot of fat to be trimmed!
If they give 2 weeks pay for every year with the company I'll be glad to get laid off . I hate this company so much but they are too cheap the offer call center reps a payoff package. I wish I could shout out loud how much I hate my supervisors and this job. Working at home is the only thing keeping my sanity
Losing largest clients, terrible service and no solutions on the way, little or no expertise left and zero culture and hired internal politicians for Execs who do not even live in KC...SSC will be out of KC by 2023 completely. If you are still there, do as little as possible, collect your $ and leave once you have another alternative or when they really need you. Maybe Bill Stone will send another meaningless note to employees looking out over the Gulf telling you to work harder and they will pay you....not.
Its never a good time to loose your job. SS&C needs to be held accountable by the federal government what they have done to American companies. DST is not the only company they have acquired and slowly shut down. They lay off the people in stages trying to stay under the radar of the state and federal government. I feel for the large number of people they have laid off and cost them their jobs. As we move through these hard times, SS&C is an organization that needs to be shut down. We do not need a company crashing organizations making money from shutting companies down and taking their assets.
If you haven't left DST by now, you've pretty much signed up to get screwed over. They've done, what, 15 or 16 layoffs since 2008?
If there's ever a time to get laid off now is the best time. You will get a severance, unemployment and the extra $600 from the feds every week. I know because I was let go.
