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

    Pros

    There are some managers that do care and treat you as an asset, but there are others that only see the bottom line. I thought the vacation time was good, however I was a long time employee so I was maxed out at 6 weeks.

    Cons

    A few years ago we lost some of our holidays. Also the company has been bought out by SS&C. They do not seem to be employee oriented. DST used to care about their employees, however it is now only concerned with the almighty $$.

    Advice to Management

    Remember you have real people working for you not robots.

    I worked at DST Systems full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Challenging work, great co-workers. Flexible schedule. Free soft drinks and coffee.

    Cons

    Poor management. Everyone is always playing catch-up. They only seem to be concerned with immediate problems, and not the long-range effects of their decisions.

    Advice to Management

    Realize that the latest and greatest new technologies aren't always the answer. Don't force clients to switch to new platforms by abandoning support of existing legacy products. Be proactive in mentoring employees, instead of providing negative feedback at review time, thereby causing it to be an unexpected hit to raises (which were very low to begin with).

    Pros

    Pay is pretty good, and work from "anywhere" is good.

    Cons

    Say they care about employees, but it is obvious they don't. Frequent layoffs.

    Hope SS&C fixes things for you.
