@1tri+18415YIn is right on the money.

They need to sort out senior & middle management, internal process, retention and recruitment and their customers. In that order.

The systems are sh–, the managers rarely know what they're doing, retention is obviously shocking due to multiple WFR rounds (I've left to a competitor now because I wanted some job security after being made a load of broken promises when I joined 18 months ago).

No point running SMILE schemes for customers who are looking to move because our service is so bad. Just offer a good service and they'll WANT to stay, or work with DXC.

It's not that difficult,

OP now:
Shut up and let's work hard guys.

OP in May 2021:
Why is the revenue down again??

And so the cycle continues... no point it explaining it to you, or management, when you refuse to listen.

What about the people who haven't had a raise in over 5 years, or more?
2 years, you are lucky.

STOP the delay, give everyone a raise that hasn't had one in two years. If you don't have the money now, then the board and executives need to forgo their bonus , stock options and maybe even some of there super high salary till there is enough money.

Mud will continue to be thrown here, or more, the truth behind the lies exposed so the world knows how DXC operates. This site is called TheLayoff, People who leave or are contemplating leaving will post what they think here. If people dont like that and want somewhere to brown nose Sal, go elsewhere.

Yes he needs to cull the middle management layers, there's too many layers of yes people who keep coming out with more useless paperwork and obstacles.

They make you cringe on the calls when they ask the brown nose questions to s— up and start with the phrase "its a good idea". If everything was a good idea Why is the company in a state and are there no bad ideas ever?

Speak up when given a town hall and stop [email protected] licking, you just look silly.

To @1nfe+18415YIn

Agree with what he's say he's trying his hardest to change DXC and try to repair tainted reputation under disastrous leadership under Lawrie" but there's more to do by him -

1) invest in the grunts on the ground
2) Think ahead and adapt, invest in new technologies
3) big issue remove duplicate and ineffectual "old style CSC / HPE" middle management.
4) Repair damaged reputation with customer caused by 3) and "Lawrie" lack of anything good.
5) Keep ahead and accelerate his change transformation
6) don't be scared about splitting small sections of the company off and selling to make company more nimble and to raise more capital.
7) If employees are facing redundancy then move heaven and earth in retraining them into sideward moves / positions
8) employee more technical people into organization rather than more yes, blah, blah managers
9) Offer your employees "especially grunts on the ground" improved wages and working conditions along with annual bonus.

No 3) is the main sticking point - need to cut deep and employee good middle management that can do the job, good work ethics don't bully and are not yes men. One way is to have management reapply for their jobs with input from their employees and customers - in theory all bad management should be curtailed

I'm outside DXC now as I lost patience with a company where I was limited in the progress I could make. I left two weeks ago, so was at Sal's last town hall.

What I see is Mike Salvino trying hard to reform the organization, but being hampered by layers of management that can be traced back to EDS days. Sal's got a very difficult problem here - he has good ideas, and knows how to make businesses successful, and has a team of execs who will work with him. Unfortunately it all starts to fall apart in the next layers of senior and middle management who're too busy playing politics and continuing the poor practices that date back to EDS, Mike Lawrie, and others.

I think that if Sal can fix the problems in the senior & middle management layers, which may mean replacing some of those people, he can transform DXC into a good place to work. My concern for those still there is that the company will run out of money before he can complete the transformation.

His other problem is that at this point, DXC has upset enough customers through WFR removing key resources from them that it's easy for competitors to target DXC resulting in the company continuing to shrink. The last three customers I worked with all said they were looking for alternative suppliers due to the number of key people who'd been made redundant damaging their projects / business. If Mike doesn't stop this happening, DXC will continue to shrink.

I believe DXC reads this site, so I'd make these points:

  1. Fix your senior / middle management resistance to change
  2. Stop WFR impacting customer delivery
  3. To Sal: Ignore 'Big Fake Mike', he's just an id–t.

I think the "stop moaning" shtick has got a little old.

Do you (or the CEO) imagine that people enjoy complaining?

Do you really think those complaints are unjustified?

Don't you think addressing the problems might silence it?

Sure, they've sorted a few things out now but the one which they have not addressed is the one people care about the most.

Fix that and the moaning will pretty stop.

My impression was DXC is throwing mud at itself. And it was pretty good with that.

But, right all well, nothing to see here. It was just the losers throwing mud. Yes, sure.
