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

    Pros

    Foot in the door into the industry , it is a big office in the heart of NYC , good team Happy hours

    Cons

    Bad management decisions for the benefit of the team. Terrible raises and bonuses. You have to stay past 2 years to get a promo. Client services business is the motto and it disrupts the relationship between management and their teams just to have a smile on the clients face and add more green in their pockets.

    Advice to Management

    Increase base pay. Or give the option of OT. Look past the idea of associates doing a one and done. That way the culture benefits everyone.

    Pros

    Great benefits and can work remotely from home (more in certain depts). Good training program.

    Cons

    Some people are great and help cultivate their employees. Others are complete micro managers who criticize with no positive reinforcement.

    Advice to Management

    Don’t promote the micro managers. They make whole departments unhappy. And if one area is not a good fit, find out what is for the employee. My cuurent company works with our strengths!

    I have been working at SS&C full-time

    Pros

    Work life balance is pretty much the only reason why I give SS&C 2 stars

    Cons

    Unfortunately, with so many reorgs and the obsessive need to increase the value of the company, Management is only focused on the bottom line and not building strong working relationships. They may say so during all team staff, but it's a lot of talk and no action.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on the employees who add value and have the right attitude and give them visibility.
