    I have been working at DST Output

    Pros

    Casual dress code, laid back atmosphere, good people to work with, good benefits, excellent vacation time

    Cons

    Zero chance for promotion, get all the money you can when hired. Little stagnant, lack of a training program. Upper management does not communicate very well with staff.

    Advice to Management

    Give a few promotions! You laid off enough people, you'd think some promotions are finally in order for the ones you kept. Been waiting over 5 years for one.

    I worked at DST Output full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    there are no Pros, I guess being on vacation would be a Pro.

    Cons

    everything. terrible managing, immediate supervising, long unheard of hours, cobol like programming that is not used anywhere else.

    Advice to Management

    Go out of business

    I worked at DST Output

    Pros

    Good vacation time, especially after ten or more years there. Great, bright employees overall but ham-strained by management.

    Cons

    Greedy, ineffective, short-sighted, self-inflated management. No training program for employees to better themselves and thier performance for the company, not that the company would acknowledge or reward it. Employees given projects with unrealistic deadlines and sub-par tools to accomplish the task with. Insultingly low 'merit' increases and bonuses if at all. Management has a keen lack of insight to the business...

    Advice to Management

    Maybe you should forego your stock options in order to invest in your employees to position your company in the marketplace better.
