Thread regarding DST Systems layoffs

It's not worth the health risk

Every job is stressful, however, here every day is more stressful than the previous one. Deadlines are getting shorter, work is increasing, the pressure is unbearable, micromanagement is their favorite style, the atmosphere is generally very tense. The consequence of this stress is a weakened immune system, a thyroid disorder, panic attacks, and so on. Why all this?
I’m pretty sure if we were to do a big survey we would find out that more than half of the employees here in a few years at DST got some psychosomatic illnesses...

Man, literally my last week my team I was on schedule as the on-call, and my team held me to it.

The client paged me at 3:00 AM the day before my last day, and when I answered, they said: "Isn't tomorrow your last day? Why are you on the pager?"

DST is all about working you to the absolute bone.

Not only the stress of normal work load, but the managers lying about you saying your a poor employee to cover their own inability to run the department. The attitude from the top down - to blame the lowest person on the totem pole for everything - no managers stepped up to take responsibility. No training - but you were expected to know everything. No time off during year end. It was a true sweatshop. Its universally hated by its employees. How much harrassment have the staff taken sine 1969 when it was first started? Can you even imagine?

I totally hear you. I worked there a long time and was lucky enough to be able to retire. You think they pay cr---y now, you should have seen the old days. Just a very soul sucking company to work for. I don't miss that place one bit.

I’m away from all of that mess now and very happy about it. I never had a panic attack until working at that fine establishment. Considering the endless stress and extended hours needed to keep your job there, it isn’t worth it. It is not like you are working for a raise or promotion because that did not seem to exist there. You worked harder for less money year after year due to inflation.
