    Pros

    Great people, pretty laid back unless your stuff isn't working well. Downtown is fun. Management seems to know what they are doing. Unusual right ?

    Hire some smart people and reduce all these extraneous managers. geez

    Dynamic environment. Deep industry experience. Learn a GREAT deal in a short amount of time. Horizontal platform, you own a client from journal entry booking to financial statement preparation. It's a meritocracy, if you are professional, work hard and perform you will be a stand out.

    Dealing with turnover at times can be frustrating. Multi-tasking can be difficult at times when clients expect things that overlap.

    I worked at SS&C full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Coffee and Snacks. Ability to work from home

    Cons

    Micromanaging directors and managers. Toxic Culture. They will yell at you if there is a mistake. Worst job that I have ever had. I would rather work at McDonald's than have to deal with the terrible people that work here.

    Advice to Management

    So many HR issues that are reported, and zero action taken. This company is only worried about profits. Horrible people work here. You have the ability to change it. Do something.
