Current Employee - Software Project Leader in Kansas City, MO
Current Employee - Software Project Leader in Kansas City, MO

I have been working at DST Systems full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Decent benefits and work/life balance.

Cons

DST is looking for ways to save money, which includes laying off or firing more people. More emphasis is placed on getting the job done vs getting it done the right way, so people that get things done the wrong way are rewarded the same as people who get things done the right way.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pay attention to how things are getting done and reward workers that do things the right way.

    Former Employee - Systems Analyst in Kansas City, MO
    Former Employee - Systems Analyst in Kansas City, MO

    I worked at DST Systems full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    - If you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all.
    - If you're a professional looking for a company to stall your career growth at, this is the place for you!

    Cons

    Their 'open door' policy exists in name only. Treatment is uneven and arbitrary. Pay is below market. HR talks a good game as to how important employees are...but the reality is drastically different. The 'anonymous' employee surveys are not anonymous, nor do they care about truly improving the employee experience through them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Enforcing written HR policies would be an excellent start. And the political climate within the company borders on ridiculous.
