Thread regarding DST Systems layoffs

Not all is doom or gloom here at DST, it can be a lovely place!

No layoffs for some- They are 100% SAFE. There are some that have it easy here at. If your pretty and having a very close intimate relationship with your Boss then you have romance and earnings in the same place. Imagine getting special treatment and knowing your always going to get a nice raise or that next promotion spot that comes up - before anyone else who deserves it. All cause your sharing bedsheets with the decision maker. It happens so often at DST, I can name countless cases. Must be nice not having stress, being able to not worry about reviews, always having the Boss genuinely smile at you at work! But it destroys the fabric of the company!

I agree but its not always a romantic relationship. We have the guy who plays golf with the
managers. He seems to get a larger raise then the rest of us. You know who you are.

When I think of all the preassure, criticism, yelling, grudges, slandering of employees at DST over the years it makes me sick. How often did 50% of the employees go home on a given day feeling like failures and were angry or depressed that night due to the way the company (from the top on down) treated them? DST criticized as if there was a reward in it. Actually each bit of criticism hurts the company and makes it non-functional. If people arent doing their jobs its because you didnt train them, or hired the wrong person for that spot. Its all on the company! As former management starts to die off in greater numbers, you have to ask, how did their negative attitudes towards other benefit them in the afterlife? Or does it count against them to be such ungodly and unchristian people on a daily basis at work - and get paid for it. My thought is they will pay for every idle word they spoke - even if its against a poor performing employee.

Oh yeah. I knew a women in a technical role and when she started "a relationship" with her supervisor she was quickly made a department trainer. So no more beeper, no nightly on-call duty, no travel, no frantic calls from angry remote clients, no real determination if she was doing a good job training (the person is stupid thats why they didnt learn) but all the other benefits and pay of someone on the front lines fire fighting huge technical issues. Guess her real work was done for her supervisor "after hours". Now wouldnt the typical person be so ashamed that they were doing this that they would eventually quit? No! It was a badge of honor that she was so close to her MARRIED supervisor. Even going to his house for the dept xmas party he hosted - and his wife was there too! DST can be a great place if your a gal that gives your supervisor "all you got"!

If anyone from DST H.R. department is reading this thread...then please consider that most DST associates consider you dishonest, a snake oil salesperson, and a suck up to management as you are never honest to prospective candidates exploring employment at DST. Why dont you mention low raises and abuse? Why dont you instead tell people to go to work at a small business where they can be huge part of a valued team instead of a tiny gear in DST's operations. Tell people not to work at DST. But no...you do not tell the truth.

There are a lot of people chilling out, a lot of people coasting and hanging on for retirement. Whenever these people are asked to take on additional responsibility, they decline or are allowed to decline. They are experts at doing nothing, and self promoting so others think they’re valuable, but their not. I am one of those, I don’t do 10 hours of real work a week. It is getting harder to skate by with all the people who’ve left. I may have to start actually working soon!

Once I was working late, then left, forgetting my reading glasses. So I walked from the parking lot back to work right away. Went in, and already my Boss was on top of "Patti", and both were laying on the floor! I am thankful DST never had beds or sleeping areas like some of the fruity west coast businesses.

I know "the dating thing" with management has gone on since DST 's first year. I always considered it to be about the same level as "street-walking". Only indoors. Like "Indoor street walking". I give you "this" and you give me "that". Repeat often.
