    I have been working at DST Systems full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    1)Flexible with schedules especially for the people that work part-time
    2)Pretty good entry level pay for full service processors
    3)Even part-time workers are off on the weekend
    4)Other associates are pretty easy to work with
    5)Relaxed environment
    6)At least you have a job

    Cons

    1) Very untrustworthy management on all levels
    2) Lower level managers don't have a clue about the job
    3) To many people have a job because their parent(s) work their
    4) Poor communication with procedure updates etc
    5) Can be very unprofessional (emails are sent out when employees are fired)..."John Doe no longer works for DST" simply translates to "We fired John Doe and because we are tacky we sent you guys an email about it" (They do not send emails when people resign
    6) High turn-over rate
    7) Inadequate training
    8) Way to much overseas outsourcing
    9) Employees are not secure with their job unless they are management...always a threat of possibly losing your position
    10) You are pretty much stuck in your position for life
    11) So much more that I can't go on

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Way to many levels of management if some of those levels were reduced then their may be a better relationship between management and employees. Lower level management should stand up for their employees instead of stabbing them in the back. If upper level managers treated lower level managers with more respect then maybe just maybe they would care about their job more. I don't think management realizes how MISERABLE their employees are. DST is a good company and is offering a great service to it's clients, trust your employees and treat them with some type of respect and you will begin to see a higher level of performance as well as a happier more inviting workplace. You can't be so stuck in your ways and values that you don't embrace change.
