    I have been working at SS&C

    Pros

    Employee events arranged by HR are a nice attempt to compensate for morale issues.

    Cons

    Upper management makes decisions without regard for staff. Resourcing decisions are made without an understanding of staff caliber. Resources treated as stop gaps for significant client issues. Not sure why the stock price continues to climb.

    Experience. Promotional upside. Jeans at work.

    Terrible pay, boring culture and did I mention the pay?

    Pros

    * Casual work environment
    * It is what you make of it
    * Like many others have said, this is a good place to get your feet wet and move on to something better

    Cons

    * Better to be an outsider if you want career placement (advancement?)
    * "Technology" company <insert joke>...
    * Not much guidance from higher ups, you need to know what has to be done before it needs to be done

    Pros

    Young environment, lots of freedom

    Cons

    SS&C buys software companies and bleeds them to death before scraping them. They purchase all these smaller software companies but after the acquisition they fail to invest in continued development and enhancement of the product. In the software industry a product constantly has to evolve and grow to stay competitive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train your managers. Too many people are promoted based on who they are buddies with not what their qualifications are.
