Thread regarding DXC Technology layoffs

Get out of DXC - There is so much more opportunity

I was WFR a couple months ago from DXC from a project management position I was in for 20 years. Believe me when I say there is a lot more opportunity out there with jobs with higher salaries and with companies that actually do appreciate what you do for them. The company I now work for actually asks for input on what I need to get my job done and guess what, they actually do what they say. Anyone that thinks that DXC is good for them hasn't taken the time to see all the other opportunity that is out there for them. Open your eyes.

Agree 125%; after I got laid off from DXC, I immediately got a new job that pays me 125% more than I was making at DXC. Life is good.

I agree that there is so much opportunity out there in the market (especially ANZ atm)......many many organisations do not treat their employees like a number but have some focus on training, pay rises (yes they do happen) and making sure you are ok......the culture in DXC was not healthy driven by a very ''macho'' culture where snr managers (almost all male) make undeliverable commitments to try and promote themselves and this puts the team under too much pressure

Where are they finding the margin expansion they keep telling us the strategy is all about?

It's quite clear, it's coming from keeping the peasants pay down.

No jam today, jam tomorrow.

Work harder biatches, the board have got bonuses to earn.

Everyone: "ok, we're here, what now?"
Mike 2: "I mean the NEXT hill"

You really think they will give raises? They keep delaying waiting for next excuse to avoid. Same as it ever was.

@2hqj+1aMUktQZ: You could fire the captain of the Titanic after it hit the iceberg and replace him with a new one; but that ship is still going down.

And that's assuming Mike 2.0 was competent.

On the BIG or any pay increase, the budget is all ready in place or should be. We should have gotten notice what a pay increase or not at our annual review. This waiting to August is BUll CR-P. You dont see the board not getting there stock options till August do yea?

Absolutely agree. I’m getting close to leaving. The company is soul destroying and I’m perhaps a few years late in getting to this decision. I stupidly believed that Mike v2 was going to make a difference but his only interest is the share price.

In IT, you have to move every 4 years or so.
If you've stayed longer than that, you're either stupid, scared, rubbish at your job, old or maybe all four

Sorry ,them's the truth for all SI companies

Totally agree with this sentiment. It is hard to leave sometimes. You get comfortable, you're not sure you can make as much on the outside, and it takes some effort. I stayed two years longer than I should have. My work life went from some of the most rewarding work I've ever done to a zombie death march before I finally moved on. Fortunately the relationships I have built over my career came back to reward me with a new opportunity at better pay. I was wiling to take a pretty good haircut to escape, so I'm happy that wasn't necessary. I really don't know what part of that company actually works well (besides the WFR machine).

Indeed. I've been out for six months now, after being refused voluntary WFR. I was only with DXC for two years, but that was two years too long. I get the Mike V2.0 is trying to improve things but I ran out of patience waiting for the improvement. After being shoved into another role I didn't want, I quit. I'm now working for a smaller competitor who pays bonuses as promised, actually lives the concepts of Wellbeing at Work, and consistently delights their customers and employees.

I know a lot of good folks who still work at DXC so I hope Mike V2.0 does actually deliver the improvements he's trying to deliver, but I wasn't waiting around to see.

I echo the poster. There is more respect outside DXC and also chance to get a big raise.
