Thread regarding DXC Technology layoffs

Christmas bonus

Having worked so hard through covid and delivered, with only a few weeks to go what's the chance for the people on the ground to get a bonus?

What do you think?

I guess Mike S is the same as Mike l unfortunately.

We hoped there would be change but shares and bonuses only for team management, team workers sorry your only worth thank yous and we will do a lot of empty thank yous for you.

Did you see the post about the Australian presents being revoked and the phishing attack that was based on "A voucher for a Turkey from Costco"?

That's all you'll be getting in 2021 - more false promises and a pink slip

@dfxf+187nJ7V6 every one knows it's a quango that only the higher levels think they are worthy enough of bonuses and shares whilst the workers can be bombarded with town hall thank yous instead to keep them sweet.

As for @czzy+187nJ7V6 I cant see Mike pulling out any blinders for staff only lining the pockets of the highest.

Theres no I in team,

Its 2 teams the stocks and bonuses
and the workers on 0.

And its expected that these diverse teams should be happy and work together.

The only thing Mike has blinded us with is thank you emails and thank you (ty) town halls, even Ty videos.

No extra pay/bonus unfortunately.

What if the deal was a 1% rise for a ty email or 1.5% for attending a ty town hall. Would hit a 10% rise in a few days.

Maybe they'll get a virtual BOT in the cloud to do the ty as a efficiency measure.

What if Mike pulls a blinder and turns it around and actually issues a bonus, you'll have to eat your words.

This is Mike S not Mike L for all those of you who are still living in the Lawrie era this is the new DXC so expect improvement.

His not all bull, he has conscience and a fair side to him so dont get surprised if a bonus is paid!!!!

you're so naive.
Bonuses are for the management,
with inflation rising your salary will decrease every year.

The Christmas bonus will be the same as last year. Those who get a 'bonus' don't get WFR'd. Although some would argue that WFR is the best bonus you could get :)

No raise in 5+ years, means I am cutting my hours by the same amount so I am down to a 30 hour actual work week with 40+ on the time sheet. I still work the 40+ hours , but take a lot longer during the day to do anything. Why rush when you dont get paid any better than the person who doesn't work or care.

Well I am done, either give me a 10% raise ASAP or I'll just do less and less and it will be still more than most :(

Your going to get 4 town hall calls thanking you for your hard work and telling you where to go, it will be 2 fingers.

No, but we have implemented that recognition system. You can log in and tell someone how great the work was he has done last year, facing home office and kids at home and clients in panic. Who wants money when they get warm words?

Sounds like a company run on nepotism, if your in the gang you deserve stock, pay, and raises, otherwise your not deserving.

A strange way of sharing, caring, or running a company, a true non partnership.

If you are still employed by DXC you are definately a Loser. Therefore you don't deserve a bonus, especially if you are in the UK.

What I never understand is that the big cheeses are somehow motivated by money, but the plebs aren't?

I remember hearing report of the Lawrie era board meeting where they decided at that table that "staff are not motivated by money" and decided to remove that "needless" expenditure from CSC.

Then later we had the DXC "success sharing scheme" whereby if the company met X target, there was a pot of money to spread out across the business.

Did anyone ever see that money? It ran for several years and I never heard of ANYONE getting it - none of the top appraisal rated, highly successful people I know in DXC.

Wonder where that money went?

Oh hang on...

And this is why until the pay issue is sorted out that staff are not fully behind the CEO. The vast scale of the past duplicity of DXC is a hard to get over, the only way out of this is to deliver some financial equity.

Sorry, that's how it is Salvino. Please sit up and pay attention - I'm sure we all WANT to believe you are different, but acknowledge this is how you demonstrate it.

@crz+187nJ7V6 A bonus is a natural incentive for those who go above and beyond. It is where clear boundaries and conditions are set in order to receive a bonus. As a consequence, this incentive will also encourage others to do better, even if the reward isn't monetary.

It is where DXC is completely missing the point where it comes to success - it is reward. DXC has removed any reward schemes, so it is no surprise people don't do more than that is absolutely required.

Yes so how do they afford the inflated salaries and bonuses for the Ex Accenture gang? If they cant afford money for the people doing the work.

Is it just a case that your only entitled to stock, bonuses, and pay raises if you worked at Accenture previously?

Bit of a quango or old boys network, you would think in the 20th century it would have been eradicated by now.

I guess "the vaccine hasn't been developed yet" or "the cheque is in the post" or the "turnaround is in progress" are bieng used for the general workers excuses when it comes to raises.

With the USA fat cats laughing all the way to the bank - no chance.

Plus your comment working hard (in DXC) - that is just hilarious.

You know the answer dingbat - Christmas bonus for plebs - NO CHANCE :-)

There is more chance of Santa Claus leaving me a bonus under the tree on Christmas night than that happening.

DXC Christmas or any other time of year the word bonus doesn't even exist unless your an executive. What a stupid question!

Very unlikely to receive anything extra in these times (covid) and downturn in the current economy (high government borrow) with uncertainties lying ahead, ceo and management will say that you should be thankful you have a job.

Rather have a job on my current pay than being WFR - although WFR likely to keep happening.

Staff need to accept 1) either bonuses / pay rises will come later 2) 1) can change in the future (3) or leave the company for rival for extra pay

You deserve ZERO and you will get ZERO. You were hired to do a job. So just do it. Expecting a bonus is indicative of a weak, entitlement mindset.

The balance sheet is fixed that's just an excuse theres 3billion borrowed in the bank account costing 100million plus in interest, they don't need that much working capital doing nothing.

Hopefully the new cfo will pull his finger out and pay back the borrowing to save the interest.

So plenty of money 100m plus out there if they really want to pay a bonus and pay raises to the covid workers and not just the Accenture Team.

Accenture cant keep on milking this company, come on mikey its Christmas be a decent bloke we dont want the managers to send all them stupid emails telling us "we have worked hard thanks, but no thanks you don't deserve anything". It just kicks you where it hurts.

We need some payment please.

Mikey sold some parts of the company to fix the balance sheet. That's why also Workplace and BPO have been under review. To high dept quota in comparison to the assets.
Most of the actions were not business driven, but are forced by weak balance sheet.

And now you are dreaming to increase payroll expences?

You certainly derserve a bonus, but except for the Ex-Accenture gang on top, it will be wishful thinking.

On a recent CEO call, our CEO said words to the effect of 'I want to pay a bonus (to our staff) this year, it's a sign of success for us to do that'.

Whether this actually comes to pass is another thing, but he stated in public that it was his goal to do so.

As I recall in the HP(E) era the USA saw the bonus paid just before Christmas, whereas in the UK it was after Christmas due to the way payroll systems worked.

I'd very much like a bonus but not holding my breath! It would certainly go a long way to repairing relations with staff, especially if it is followed up with the annual pay reviews being fully reinstated - again as our CEO has said he intends to do.
