    I have been working at DST Systems full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    I have flexibility to attend appointments, etc but that is only because of my direct supervisor.

    Cons

    The company does not care about employees at all. It's all about the bottom line. There is no recognition for hard work. I have been making well below the posted job range salary for years and nothing has been done about it. I worked my tail off to make their merger with Boston Financial a success but got zero credit.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of the one thing that makes your company tick - the people - or you will be out of business. The company is failing because senior management does not listen to anyone or care to listen. Pay your employees, reward them - regularly. There are other places to work. I'm hoping to be a former employee sooner rather than later.
