    I worked at SS&C

    Pros

    Location was great at the time, in the ironically named innovation district.

    Cons

    Office morale, lack of collaboration, bullying management style, culture of fear, lack of trust, lack of autonomy, backstabbing, finger-pointing, second guessing. No strategy. No customer focus. No openness to new ideas

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None; they can's hear you up on their perch of perfection. Make a suggestion of any sort and be viewed as negative, so workers are disincented.

    I have been working at SS&C full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits. Great work environment depending on who your manager is and if your team wants to help you or train you.

    Cons

    No work life balance. It is a slave ship if you allow it to be. Managers and Seniors work on weekends and run reports till Am hours and then come in for regular work hours.

    Make sure you get the position you want or don't take the job. Many people are promised 1st shift to get them to take 3rd shift and that never happens.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train new employees right away not when you feel like it. Having new people for 3-4 months before they learn anything is a huge waste of money and talent.

    Dress code and occasiona lunches

    Cons

    Preach work-life balance, but work people ungodly hours because they will not hire anyone till its too late.
    Does not look favorable on folks who voice opinions, want everyone to be bobble heads
    Upper management ignores emails from employees when they bring up unethical practices and work environment

    Pros

    A few of the people are good to work with. Nice office, free parking, pay is OK

    Cons

    Work load drained the soul out of me. Client are a pain. Systems are poor for a tech company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's too late for me but you are in danger of burning out your best people. When you do the annual bonuses make it rain
