    Pros

    DST-GS is a global company which allows you the opportunity to travel and move around in the company. There is a lot of flexibility within departments and the chances for growth are great but you have to be a self advocate and use the tools made available to you. There is on onsite Learning Management System which allows you to take online courses on the product and offers IT courses free of charge on your down time.

    Cons

    You have to advocate for yourself and be able to teach yourself if not the learning curve for the products and the systems is a lot steeper.

    Advice to Management

    Management is very approachable, however some times micromanaging may occur...

    I worked at DST Global Solutions for less than a year

    Pros

    Easy to get a job there. Mainly because of high turn over. Tons of money that they waste. Change is also good. They constantly change.Mainly to make up for past mistakes.

    Cons

    DST is trying to be a better company, but is strangled by poor upper management. Working harder, not smarter is a mantra there. Their lower employees often have to work double or triple hours to cover poor planning and obvious inefficiencies. Some managers are actually proud of making the slightest headway. When they should be disappointed they missed their goals.They call it "stumbling forward."

    Advice to Management

    Stop adding new projects until you finish the ones projects on your plate. Work smarter not harder. And treat your people better. 60hrs a week is not normal.

    Pros

    There is no prons at all for experience one. Slightly Good for beginer. Easy leave availed.

    Cons

    1. Worst part is employee break will being get counted for washroom and drinking water. They are engaged in making machines to work hard and sticks to system all the time a day. 2. No hike in appraisals at all, management dont met their committment at time of appraisals and they just keep fooling you around througout year in one on one. 3. No more comfirt at work place, management try to put pressure on associates ...
