After 15 years I’ve been laid off from the company and it’s not enough to say I’m just disappointed. I am more than disappointed. I had much better offers at the time, but back then they did everything to keep me. What a mistake, because I could have had a much better career. For my loyalty I was rewarded with a layoff. I hope that my mistake will be a lesson for others that dedicated work and loyalty mean nothing to them and that they should look for better jobs for themselves as soon as possible.

Take as a lesson all of you. In todays world you have to put yourself first. Do not believe the politicians who tell you what you want to hear think for yourself. Know that you must keep yourself current and take responsibility to look around. If you have been in the same job for 20 years and are in the same position...that is on you. SSC is a family run company and you are either in the family or you are expendable. Stone is a tyrant and surrounds himself with yes men and friends it has worked for him..............
Did you get a layoff package because S customer service reps they just fire you know benefit package
20+ years and I am in the same position...
Sorry to hear this, however take a look around - new managers coming in - new leadership - do you think they even really know you? Do they know what you did 1,5,10+ years ago? Do they themselves value loyalty as you do?
No idea what the leadership values even are for SSC, let alone DST. Beyond “revenue” and “stock price” there doesn’t really seem to be any moral compass to the place.
