    Change is good but listen to associates before implementing major changes to be sure they make sense.

    I worked at DST Systems full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Pay was ok; company had been very flexible with work hours, but that was eventually made more stringent; ok 401k with company match

    Cons

    KC and Birmingham staff were treated better than Harrisburg staff - we were treated like the red headed step child despite the fact we had much more knowledge. They eventually closed Harrisburg office, laying off most of the staff, and were very uncaring and unapologetic about it. Had to try to train my replacements (new hires) remotely to learn my 15+ years of knowledge in a very short period of time.

    Advice to Management

    Care more about claims being processed correctly, and less about how cheaply the work can be done.

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

    Pros

    Ability to work from anywhere when not at the client site

    Cons

    Changed to PTO for Tim off and those with over 15 years lost 5 days off. Medical benefits continue to cost more for less. Took away profit sharing and you are now vested day 1. Great for new employees but bad for those with over 5 years. Rebranded themselves from software company to data entry company. Company now employees less skilled employees. Everything they are doing paint a picture the company won't be around for long.

    Advice to Management

    PMO was just getting better with different management and senior staff moves old PMO manager back. With her back, you are guilty until you prove you are innocent. New senior officer pushed out all old upper management and brought in mostly female management.
