A certain business unit head arrested for possession with intent to sell behind a Walmart.
I saw management, yes even executive level management dating women who worked at DST. This is unethical. many companies now fire and claw back bonuses of menagement that date women in the company. Its not allowed under H.R. policy. Check out the McDonald's CEO/CFO that was fired on the spot! They took away his stock options. Yet DST let managers date and MARRY girls working at DST. Highly unethical!
DST signed a new client, a Bank Trust company in Cincinnati. So all the hardware was delivered and setup by Motorola. The client services dude, the oldest and most senior guy in that Dept of DST, spent about 1 day there hobnobbing and left to come back to KC. The staff had no training. Didn't know how to do daily operations. In no time the banks clients, companies that used the stock transfer record keeping system were hosed. The trades were messed up. the dividends messed up everything was garbage. I think it put the bank out of the stock transfer business for good, and they had been in it a long time. Huge industry snafu. Well know failure in the stock transfer industry. Management I guess figured the client could learn the system on their own?
We had a true (tested) genius in our department. But the Division Manager would not promote the genius or give him any responsibilities where he could make a difference. So we had ordinary people designing stuff that would not work well, and making big mistakes. Our department was 1/10th as effective cause the genius was pigeon holed in system documentation. Not development. He left and went to Sungard and developed their entire escheatment and tax reporting systems in record time and then they were more competitive than DST. He had also memorized the DST system, so he could easily make one much better. He then went to Google and I heard got a fortune in stock options and is very wealthy now. My Manager was afraid this guy would take his job someday
I saw a supervisor date a girl in his dept. Then when the xmas party came, he brought a new girl that just started in his area. Much to the shock of the now replaced girl. He acted like it was no big deal
I had a supervisor and she wore low cut evening gowns and heels to work. NO JOKE! She did it to gain favor with men and flirt. Finally someone told her to stop it and she wore more normal clothes. But who in their right mind would wear evening gowns to the office! NUTS! Just NUTS!
A manager in the data center kept all his private Amway records on the mainframe. I delete them! For fun!
My manager tried to trick people into breaking rules, so they could be fired. So we told his wife he was having an affair at work. She made him quit his job at dst
Yes, I concure. In my area there was a unhappy married man that visually looked all women that passed through the area up and down as if they was a new watch he just bought. Even if the woman was married herself, he would gawk at their physical appearance (if attractive). I felt it was a very odd and wierdo thing to do. But you can't really go to H.R. and say a guy spends his days eyeing you. Women avoided him and felt very uncomfortable around him. It made it hard to work there. We knew he was thinking about our bodies, NOT our clothes when he looked at us. He was a loser anyway and never got anywhere.
I saw a guy in a department chase every skirt that joined our small dept. It was such an embarrassment. He was married. He never called his wife by her name. It was just "the wife". How pitiful.
In 2013, I was taken into a one-on-one with my boss and honestly thought I was going to get promoted. I was the top producer on my team at the time and I had the numbers to prove it.
Nope, the meeting was to deliver a write-up I didn't deserve, and I fought it. I kept my job for another four years, and I'm not sure if it was worth it, to be honest. They made a big, big mistake identifying me for a back-door layoff, because I always kept documentation on my productivity.
Whats the worse thing you ever saw management do?
They hired me. I still hold it against them.
I saw a member of management who was married have a shamless affair with a young and d-mb girl in his department. She really thought he loved her and would leave his wife!
The ton 10 executives at DST cared only about the stock price and their relations with maybe the top 50 shareholders of DST, many of whom were mutual funds. And cared little about the average worker at DST or that person's future success. DST was made to enrich the top 10 and the top 50. That is all!
