    I have been working at DST Systems full-time

    Pros

    The people are good to work with and there is a lot of training.

    Cons

    There is a lot of overtime during the peak season. Staffing is lean these days so it's busy even when there's only one or two people gone. The pay is low and promotions can be quite difficult to get.

    I have been working at DST Systems full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    There are some great people to work both for and with. Benefits are fair. Changes are happening that could be very good and bring DST in line with newer technology and financial companies. They are really pushing for younger employees.

    Cons

    The belt is always tightening and a lot for f changes are happening quickly and coming down from the top. The company is both aging and turning over faster. Not always good about retaining top talent.

    Advice to Management

    Work on changing from the bottom up. Current decisions seem dictated instead of grown and fostered. Keep growing a diverse work force and focus on keeping talent.
