Thread regarding DST Systems layoffs

The perniciousness of the ‘sink or swim’ philosophy

My opinion is that every employee should try to learn as much as possible on their own. However, I have worked in several companies before I came here and none of these companies were leaving it to employees who still do not have enough experience to do work that exceeds their current capacity. Perhaps this ‘swim or sink’ philosophy is one of the biggest reasons why many are leaving?

My last job at DST I had to invent ways to do the work of 2-3 associates.

As stressful as it was (and holy !@#$ was it stressful) it also gave me everything I needed to get a better job, which I did. I spent the few years after that reaching out to old DST friends in order to help them get hired off elsewhere and out of that awful place.

The Great Resignation is your friend. Get out while it's easy.

Sink or swim is true. The lack of training causes many mistakes and re-working or re-processing of customer accounts. People are hired and never trained on their dept's aps. They just get the basic on boarding training. Must cost millions each year in re-works.

First you must realize DST (IE: its executives) in my opinion only care about their paychecks (IE: the huge ones). They never cared, even in the 1970's to 2000's about clients. They never even cared about the investment of all employee funds into Valaent Pharma. They care about nothing. Just their bank accounts!
