Thread regarding CSC layoffs

UK, brace yourself

UK, brace yourself. More layoffs have just been announced.

The affected areas: Insurance BPS, CSPD, sales, healthcare, GBC, corporate functions, management, and I'm sure more to come. Usual reasons - 'headwinds', 'continuous challenges', etc etc

no news on numbers yet, but it looks quite severe

I left CSC back in April via VR after 15 years - based on some scoring process that someone I never worked or heard of made up - but I could of cared less my mind was already made and that VR was the option for me I thought the place was rock bottom then.

Having left and got another job in a industry a million miles from CSC the grass is greener.

My advise to anyone still at CSC take a moment to think what it is you want to do and go for it - don't wait or ponder if your going to be next out the door, make sure the next move is yours and not one CSC forces

All I can say is good luck to you all and I hope your future employment is a better one

I'm out. Have applied to leave and have another offer which I have accepted, non US company thankfully.

Took VR from HPE last year as I was fed up with the constant threat of redundancy hanging over my team and I as the company spiralled to the bottom.

Joined CSC last year. Who'd have thought I'd be rejoining the HPE madness 9 months later? You just couldn't make it up.

Businesses restructure, I get that, but US firms seem to have this as part of the norm. Don't address the underlying problems through the year (indeed a cohesive long term strategy is a concept that consistently eludes them) then cut cost end of Q3, i.e. Jobs. Thousands have been shed by both parties this year.

However what really annoys me is that the CSC leadership will pocket $90.5m from the merger. It's just wrong, simples.

Yes, there are only two of us in the UK. The OP and me. We both work from home. I live in Edinburgh and he's in the next village, London.
