    I have been working at DST Systems part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Wants to reward everything you do (heavy positive reinforcement),
    As part-time, get to make my own flexible schedule,
    Managers are always willing to help,
    Cross-trained in other areas of my department so I am always learning something new,
    Want to see you succeed no matter what.

    Cons

    Could have had more training, but after I got the hang of it, it was fine.

    Pros

    DST has a great, associate-friendly culture and a strong promote from within tradition. I have been here two years and can't speak highly enough about the work/life experience.

    Cons

    You do have to pay for part of your downtown parking in Kansas City, but DST does pick up the rest of the parking tab.

    I worked at DST Systems as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Strategic team development
    Opportunity to work with multiple teams
    Cutting edge Java/Javascript framework to work with
    Over all Good management
    Good relocation facilities

    Cons

    couple of interns said that they did not get stuff to work on, which they expected, rather a totally different module

    Allow intern cross participation in projects

    I have been working at DST Systems full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible hours (salary), great team, management is open to criticism of any dept, 401k, vacation time, profit sharing to name a few

    Cons

    The company has sort of went away from being a leader to a follower in terms of policies. No more free insurance we pay premiums that stay going up as employees. Taking away holidays, and pay is good but not industry leading, not really a complaint just sucks having to deal with these new policies and not being paid the best.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing, continue being transparent and bring open and available
