    Take Initiative: Be Rewarded

    Pros

    Destiny is in your own hands. If you want to work 9-5, just do your job, and contribute minimally, you can find a place in the company that rewards you little. However if you take initiative, understand the vision of the company, the benefits are endless. It is a meritocracy. Employees are rewarded for taking initiative. The company understands the position it is in: about to become the largest fund administrator globally. It has reinvested in its people and technology to achieve this.

    Cons

    Hours are long, but manageable. Not everyone is a genius, but not everyone can be.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward those who take initiative.

    Pros

    Company is growing and financially strong, which provides interesting career opportunities. Management runs a tight and efficient organization. Everyone is busy and mostly productive, management sets aggressive but achievable goals and the culture is very direct and holds employees accountable. Top employees seem to be rewarded well and most can do well with reasonable effort. Pay is good for the effort required.

    Despite older reviews, turnover seems industry standard. I don't see office politics. Perhaps this varies by office/division.

    Cons

    Offices are drab. Could provide more formal career training. Management could provide more transparency on bonuses and compensation. Would be good to have more formal career mentoring and performance review processes. Benefits are industry standard, could do better. No fun perks like other tech companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep investing in products, provide more transparency into corporate processes and more structure in terms of compensation and talent management. Continue growing and be sure to share the rewards with employees who are contributing.

    Pros

    In SS&C, all of us work in a very cooperative way. Company culture is very open to discussion and very willing to accept, encourage and cheer new ideas.

    The working environment is very friendly. CEO and all higher managers are very accessible and help every employee when you are needed.

    Technology support is great and provides 24/7 service.

    The company is growing extremely fast now and offers tremendous opportunities.

    Cons

    Everyone needs to work real hard. But after hard work, with good result, everyone is entitled to have big bonus.

    Pros

    The fact that SS&C will invest in their employees makes this one of the best places to work.

    They take the time to encourage new thoughts and ideas

    The ability to balance work and home is the best. I have the ability to have a very flexible work schedule in order to better myself with Grad school.

    Upper level management is always there to lend a ear for when some issue may arise.

    Being able to work collectively as a group to bounce ideas off of coworkers.

    Cons

    The work is hard and demanding. But what job isn't hard or demanding? The hard work pays off in the end with the recognition, advancement and compensation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More group outings to bring teams closer together.
