back to article CSC insiders: 800 job cuts will hit service delivery for punters

CSC is pressing ahead with plans to axe hundreds of workers, brushing aside concerns from some employees that customers are already feeling the pinch of past cost cutting actions. In what has become an annual ritual for CSC, almost 800 employees were put at risk of redundancy in May, with their roles earmarked to be sent to …

    How big are the management bonuses this year?

    So if the redundancies will have no impact on customers then the management have been guilty of running an inefficient, overstaffed business for years?

    It sounds better but....

    "by the order of magnitude proposed"

    "An order of magnitude" = 10. Here one would just write "by the extend proposed".

    Hello! Is there anybody left in CSC

    I know that they have vacated a big proportion of their swanky offices near Aldershot. At this rate, it won't be long before the whole site will be CSC free!

    The offices are really nice btw. I have a nice desk right next ro a full length window.

    Brilliant idea, I mean the users LOVE them. It's great when you literally can't understand a word the support person is saying.

    Aldershot is being emptied because manglement say that they ABSOLUTELY HAVE TO BE in central London, so they have bought into expensive new offices at Kings Cross. "Location is everything".

    Then they try to sell services saying "it doesn't matter where you are or where our support staff are".

    You can't make a person redundant (in the UK) you can only make their 'role' redundant.

    So to say you are making people redundant and moving their roles offshore just means you are sacking them.

    Unfair dismissal anyone?

    The word inside CSC is that the workforce is already strained.....

    Prepare to be strained even further. Those 'concerns' always fall on deaf ears. As is always the case is such scenarios, those of you whom survive the cull may begin to bring sleeping bags and a change of clothes to work regularly since you will now have to take on the work of your departed comrades.

    Sanjiv Gossain has no skills in anything but kicking out Brits and replacing them with cheaper Indians, thats his whole skillsbase, since they hired him to head the UK its been obvious what would happen
