Thread regarding DST Systems layoffs

You are not that important

If you think you're safe, think again. DST leadership believes everybody is replaceable. If there is somebody willing to do your job for less money, they'll find them. And there's always somebody cheaper. Maybe not better, but they don't care about that for as long as the numbers align the way they want them to.

Oh yea, the private cloud - what fun that is. I'm sure they will be right up there with all the 4th tier hosting vendors when it's all done. How much $$$ is being put into that piece of $hi$. At the end of the day is SS&C really a technology "innovation" company or simply another BPO with a ton of people in India. (more akin to Cognizant than Google). There probably will never be major investment into R&D & engineering. Someone said once, give me the technology product that SS&C "invented" - the best they could come up with was the cr---y crm tool for sales...

In the end it doesn't matter - SS&C can continue to squeeze on expenses, treat customers like cr-p and get someone to try to sell & manage stuff. Meanwhile senior management is stuffing their pockets with cash (should sound familiar as DST).

The folks remaining with 20+ years service should self-terminate. What a demotivated group of people. New ideas... nah, we're good.

That’s not really the case now, they’ve got lots of ideas (devx?) but no one to do the work. Constant churn in infrastructure, they’re on their second homegrown private cloud, third ci cd system. It’s like ES always was, a complete joke.

DST has always said their associates were the most important part of the business. But actions speak louder than words. DST just said that to dangle a carrot in front of the naive. DST should get an award as the most abusive company in Kansas City's history. I bet it cause more stress than any other firm in the area. Think of all the hostile acts that took place to staff over the past 50 years......wow, just wow!
