After 15 years at SunGard, my office was shut-down. In fairness, we weren't laid off and were transitioned as virtual office employees. Working remotely, getting into the office for a face-to-face with the new CEO isn't easy. I find it odd that there wasn't even an option to dial-in on this meetup with the CEO. Pair this with the postings on this board that layoffs - though small in scope - are continuing. Add on that there appears to be no change in direction. I don't find any of this promising. While I appreciate that a face-to-face is more personal, these are modern times - opening a bridge isn't difficult. But, I digress.
For all the positive posts in this forum, I'm completely convinced that you are offshore employees. State-side, day-to-day operations are completely spotty. You can't count on anyone to respond to pending issues. State-side, this is all a game of hand-it-off to the next guy. I suspect the reason for the pass-the-buck culture is that a lot of folks are looking for new jobs. SunGard isn't a huge organization so maybe what I'm seeing day-to-day is just from one perspective.
That being said, there's still a large clientele needing service but it really seems like a house of cards.
Have I thought about quitting? Only for the low morale. If leadership was able to aptly convince me that there is something to work for, I might not consider quitting a temptation. So far, I haven't even heard from the LT - old guard or new guard. Revenue has been in decline year-after-year - why would I not think the worst?
