Thread regarding Sungard Availability Services layoffs

I am curious

I worked for the Inside Sales team in Wayne a few years back. Had a few roles with them. They had a great team with an awesome culture. Are they still around? They always performed well so I have to imagine by now it’s the biggest sales team.

"Sales lost its traction when AB left. They were moving along under his guidance."

I believe the company took a big hit when AB left. He had strategic maneuvers in place for sales. He was getting ready to turn the company around.

I feel for the sales people. It must be difficult to sell something if your version of it costs more and has fewer features. Or if it's still "coming soon" and not even implemented yet.

@7egv+1bQS7v8K - What planet are you living on? Where is the proof that any turnaround is happening? Keep taking the meds!

@7egv

the culture is turning around and so are the results.

It's absolutely true - where it used to take eight clueless offshore people two weeks of arguing to duct tape a solution together, it now takes only SEVEN. This is mostly because they laid off the eighth guy but hey, PROGRESS!

You guys are all bitter trolls. This place is turning around. Not as quickly as everyone would like, but it is happening. Sure, unfortunately there was a lot of fat that needed to be cut, people with cr@ppy anti-customer attitudes, etc. but the culture is turning around and so are the results.

After months and months of management planning they decided to turn the sales team into a revenue reduction force.
