    Pros

    They have good benefits and PTO. Strong KC presence.

    Cons

    Lacking directive leadership from the top in regards to major initiatives and culture. Both are left either to HR or the individual business units to figure out or allow to go where ever the wind takes them.

    Advice to Management

    Be deliberate in the culture you want. And take directive leadership from the top instead of allowing each business head to do whatever they want.

    I have been working at DST Systems full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Room for growth and internal movement between departments. Ability to work from home in some rolls. Co-workers are fun. Location makes it central to many people and easy commute.

    Cons

    Pay doesn’t equal work load. Overworked and no signs of slowing. Disorganized and leadership isn’t progressive at all. No work life balance. High importance put on submitting yearly goals but not truly used to determine merit and performance. HR calls the shots.

    Advice to Management

    Engage employees and offer infinitives to high performers not by title or HR direction.

    I have been working at DST Systems full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    benefits are great, hours are good, nice cafeteria, direct management is great with their employees and will work with them to set them up for success.
    Paid volunteer work up to 8 hrs is great for the community!

    Cons

    management has a hard time working with other managers especially at different sites, upper management will micromanage down to the second that you are away from your desk.
    And no longer have all paid holidays off, only major holidays. And as for paid volunteer work, the organizations to work with are limited.
    Moving to new departments or next level team member has become harder to accomplish.

    Advice to Management

    communicate, make sure everyone is on the same page when it comes to general information.
