    I have been working at DST full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    You get to WFH which is always a bonus.

    Cons

    Dysfunctional. Training was supposed to last only 6 weeks but it took 3 months and during that 3 months, we went through 4 different trainers. Each one gave us a different way to process and different answers. It was an absolute mess and very unprofessional.

    Advice to Management

    Take pride in the company that you work for.

    Good Benefits! Nice location! Benefits are great, but the is about it.

    Not let employees decide how comfortable other employees can or can't be.

    I have been working at DST full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Flexibility and work-life balance (in certain roles). Good benefits package.

    Cons

    Lower than average pay. Most roles/teams have few advancement opportunities. Budget cutbacks have made raises nearly obsolete, and there have been at least 3 major layoffs in 4 years.

    Advice to Management

    Allow associates to take more risks and reward creative thinking. Fix the culture of top-down mandates and punishing small mistakes.
