    I worked at SS&C full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits, good tuition reimbursement and 401k.

    Cons

    Deeply low pay compared to the market rate or other fund administrators. Too much office politics played by the long-term Chinese female co-worker. Director levels do not have much experience in Fund accounting since he did not have a degree in Accounting. Instead he's super good at bs with the clients. He is always wearing earphones jacked to his ipad or iphone and yelled while watching football games

    Advice to Management

    Fire this Director guy asap so that other staff can respect the company.

    Pros

    Commute is nice. Free coffee and water. Occasional free lunch. You can wear jeans but you see lots of slobs in the office.

    Cons

    Everything else is pretty awful. If you have a family or relationship that you want to keep, don't work here. You work 55 hours but still get yelled at for not working over the weekend.

    Making money is important, but you can't do it at your employees expense

    I worked at SS&C full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I was a software developer for the Financial Markets Group in Boston, working on Market Trader. The group I worked with was fun, and worked well together as a team in an agile team environment. My coworkers were always professional, and provided help and guidance when needed.

    The management team, which included members in NY / NJ as well as in Boston were very positive to work for. They always allowed for extra time when development took longer than expected, while maintaining high SW DEV standards in following the standard SWDLC. They were also good with handling clients may have had unrealistic expectations.

     While I was with SSNC, my skill set grew into the area of report writing. My C#/VS/MSSQL/TFS skills grew as well since the technology is all MS based. Also learned how equity/option trades in domestic as well as global markets work.

    The salary, bonuses, and benefits were all competitive and commensurate with my position in the company.

    The talent that I had the privilege of working with was world class.

    The office building where I worked in downtown Boston is as good as any facility I've ever worked.

    They also provide a nice transportation benefit for covering the costs of commuting to work.

    The kitchen always provides a nice array of various coffees to choose from.

    Cons

    Sometimes there were miscommunications. Also, the talent is so high there, that some of the code I wrote was sometimes replaced with more improved code, even though my code was adequate.
