Generally I think company management just simply doesnt trust their employees. Or doenst like that whole idea of you sitting on your couch or laying in bed while getting paid for it. Gives the feel like you're getting paid to do nothing. They just cant get over the stigma. They would rather spend big bucks on office so they can physically see you. Its irritating. Funny how capitalism will go through so much immoral cuts and strategies to cut costs but strangely cant give up that expensive office space.
Raytheon BU separations, Raytheon announced layoffs, DXC loss of business, and DXC stocks taking a beating probably will result in continued RIFs at DXC.
Sprinkle in some miscalculations by management too.
Usually right around the holidays is when the layoffs start.
Currently, nearly the entire workforce is remote due to COVID-19. However, while I am not on the Raytheon account, I have worked remote for 7 years and never had any complaints about the service I deliver or the quality of work. If they cut remote positions, its just another excuse to get rid of skilled, more highly paid workers, because by and large, many of the remote workers demand to be remote because they have options, are highly skilled and don’t want to relocate, and have a higher salary in many cases. I am tied to an account that name requested me and though the account is happy, my personal concern with where this company is headed, has me looking for a better place to go. I have been with the company for 7 years from HP>>HPE>>DXC. My last raise was while we were still HPE, my boss basically acknowledging we were heading into a period with no raises so he fought for and got me a raise. He has since been WFR’d, two of my team members WFR’d, one moved to sales to sell more of the work we do, that we can’t fully deliver because our team has been cut down so small- if that isn’t a sign that the end is near, I don’t know what is. If you are skilled enough to have options, get out while you can, before they send you packing.
This is the downside of the outsourcing business. Customers see outsources as extended workforce and to ignore the pandemic with the WFH situations is ridiculous and shows Raytheon is clearly living on another planet without some sort of Covid.
Yes but who knows what DXC client contracts say? Signed contracts often sit on a sales laptop. Delivery often work off Draft versions of contract and have even had to ask the client for a copy when there is a dispute. Embarrassing! Its basic business management that is failing at DXC, execs have no idea how things work or how they're supposed to work.
DXC has already stripped Raytheon support staff to the bone and Raytheon is unhappy with the lack of support. I doubt it's Raytheon saying to cut heads of remote workers (isn't everyone remote post-Covid).This is just more DXC trying to cut costs by saying you're non-critical if you're not directly touching customer assets. The joke is on them is the billable labor agreement is similar to a cost plus gov account. They're cutting their own revenue every time they make cost savings. You have to be an id–t not to make money on this type of account. It's not high percentage, but it's consistent high dollar returns...if you're not pissing it all away on missed targets.
Not happy with remote staff !?
I hear that dxc will start laying off the end of Oct. Start ? where have you been it has never stopped
Its not security, as we have secure gateways encryption with two factor authentication and a bunch of support has always been remote
Its probably a security concern rather than a work ethic problem....
Google Raytheon, see what they do...
Raytheon not happy with the work at home staff. It's not working from home or working in an office. If your a good worker, you work good no matter where your physically located.
Unless you need to touch the equipment, your working remotely. Sitting in an office on a computer accessing another computer via ethernet, it doesn't matter if your next to the device or across the sea, if you are on a fast network or using smar6t software where not much data is actually sent over the wire.
