    I worked at SS&C full-time

    Pros

    Great working environment with excellent leadership team

    Cons

    One thing I would recommend which is small would be to looking into better Healthplan options. This may have changed since my time there, but that was one of my issues during my time.

    I have been working at SS&C full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    SS&C has great PTO/Sick benefits and Insurance

    Cons

    I feel that the pay is low (when compaired to other offices) for the amount of work we are required to do.

    Advice to Management

    Work on Employee moral and really look at what employees are doing/handling. Most people in the office are not happy overall with the pay scale and advancement opportunities. People are not treated with the same respect as the next person regarding pay and advancement.

    I have been working at SS&C full-time

    Pros

    Team members are great
    Work-life balance is pretty good
    Standard benefits package within the industry but surprisingly elite spending account options
    Room for career growth possibilities

    Cons

    Specific members of management have had a hard time of rooting out bad seeds
    Turnover rate in certain offices are higher than the national average, not all tho

    Advice to Management

    They have the tools to make this company into a perennial all-star, just got to get the right people in the right roles to take this higher. Other than that pretty nice gig.

    Pros

    Some great people there to work with.

    Cons

    Constant fear of changes or no changes due to the rapid acquisitions year after year. Lower level employees don't feel part of the company in remote offices.

    Pros

    Due to being in a very tiny office in the Denver area it was quiet and relaxed.

    Cons

    Out of the corporate loop in Denver, all the corporate staff was on the East Coast. So very little interaction with the actual company, not a clue what was really going on at the corporate level.

    Advice to Management

    Grow in the Denver team.

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

    Pros

    One of industry leading (largest) fund admins. Technology teams are flexible and actively try to help business users fix their issues. Mumbai and Airoli operations teams who are responsible for doing most of the leg work are very process oriented but extremely hard working and will go out of their way for stateside counterparts.

    Cons

    Seems like most NYC employees are their punching clock. United States operations staff go on calls and demand that India offices do more work that may or may not actually address issues. Lots of regional infighting between US, UK and India. Is a quintessential jam shop. Most employees only seem to know how to book "deal types" (legacy globeop jargon for trades) but possess no awareness of the accounting entries that are going along with these which seems ironic considering this is a fund administrator. Managers are very good at jumping on calls to talk and doing very little. No accountability and an easy place to coast if you are so inclined.

    Advice to Management

    Clean up the operations and get rid of some of the bureaucracy that exists. Train your people and hold them accountable for doing the job. Bring in some bright minds to clean up the technology architecture which is currently a complete disaster.
