    I have been working at SS&C full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    People are really friendly here. I enjoy my co-workers and I do not ever mind to go into work, Ive had jobs before this one that I dreaded going into each day, but this one I never feel that negativity. Flexible with working around sudden things that come up if you have to come in late or leave the office for a little. Option to work from home when sick or bad weather so you dont have to take sick days is great. Just overall a good company with great opportunities for its employees. Also very helpful co-workers when teaching me how to use the system,

    Cons

    Work hours are difficult. Never guaranteed to get off at a certain time. I've had to cancel plans many times before cause I got stuck over late. It can be very stressful sometimes because of the sheer amount of work that has to be done. It takes a while to learn the system as well.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure all the teams working on the same funds or together are evenly splitting up workload. Not one team from one office leaves while the other one always gets stuck with no help.
