Thread regarding Sungard Availability Services layoffs

Layoff day

Another day, another lay off. My number came up today. Box coming tomorrow. Relieved to be out of the sinking ship, but feel for my coworkers and friends leaving behind.

@3pfn+1b26u8LK - Never a truer word said, buddy! Poor 'Development' of non fit for purpose for products for years!

You cant put 'Product' and 'Development' in the same sentence.

This means instead of delivering an unworkable product after 3 years, they now deliver an unworkable / unsupportable product after 5 years

This place is done and they act like sales matters they're not trying to sell anything they're trying to close up shop.

As an employee of SG - the animals are running the zoo. So many things day-to-day that I could comment on. Believe it or not, there's still a core group of people who care and they handle the issues that they can. That being said, it feels like a house of cards. There's only so many people at the lower rungs who can keep operations going.

Funny thing - no one is exempt. No matter how many hours you put in, no matter how much difference you make, there's still an overwhelming feeling that 'any day', your number is up. I have a strong work ethic so I put in all my hours but it's becoming increasingly obvious when working with other teams, that there are two prevailing sentiments - 1. you are worked beyond your capacity, you can't keep up, or 2. no matter how much you contribute, even if you go above and beyond, it doesn't really matter. I feel for the first group - I try to help them as much as I can.
