Thread regarding DST Systems layoffs

Are you proud of the experience and skills gained here?

I'm not. I tried to learn as much as possible, but in that sense I was very limited here. I just didn’t have a lot of opportunities to learn much. That's why I'm leaving.
I don’t intend to waste my time here where it’s not exactly easy to expand your skillset. In the company I worked for before I came here, everything was much more dynamic.

Oddly enough, some of the things I had to invent in order to work the jobs of three laid off people helped me get the job I have now, which I love.

I created a web page which cataloged all of our automatic file transmissions in detail and how to fix them if they went down. I had to learn Sharepoint in order to help clients. I had to learn how formulas, conditional formatting, and other advanced Excel functions.

All I can tell you is to train on everything and keep your resume current. You never know what might get you that dream gig, and the job I have now is wonderful.

But always be looking for your way out.

This company has damaged me profoundly. Years of getting by with obsolete software, poorly written procedures, resistance to meaningful change, and poor treatment as an employee has dulled my brain and entirely relieved me of motivation. I’ll need a mental detox treatment before I get a new job.

I learned the basics as I joined right out of school. Some training was good, but it only applies to DST and not other companies. As for the company culture, DST is the most totally un-christian workplace I have even heard about. And I am not a prude.

No, had to self train on lots of antiquated technology. There were few that could help. Basically do what you could to keep things running, there was never time to fix broken things.

I am thankful to not be associated with this company now. I am sorry for those who still must endure it.
