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

Pros

Any level of employees have a good opportunity to further education within the company and outside of the company. Has a great benefit package including: health, dental, vision, and time off.

Cons

Organization is in bad place at the moment, top management making changes within the organization every few months, which causes bad morale. Top leaders are being recruited from eastern United States and not local.

Advice to Management

Stop reorganizing divisions every few months and add stability. Need to reward your dedicated employees with more than 2% annual raises. Also, give opportunities for advancement to current employees.

    I have been working at DST Systems full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Very consistent employer.
    Good health benefits.
    Good work-life balance though it is dependent on manager/unit.
     DST Technologies (AWD) / Business Process Solutions business unit is by far THE BEST of DST Systems! I wouldn't want to work anywhere else in the company.

    Cons

    Career opportunities sometimes seem limited.
    We sometimes over-commit to clients.
    Pay is not as competitive as other firms.
    Overworked employees - not enough investment in divisions such as Business Process Solutions.
    Not enough focus on newer technologies.
    Disparate marketing messages.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in AWD/Business Process Solutions. It is the hidden gem of the company.
    Improve your corporate marketing.
    Time to leave IBM and the mainframe behind.
