    I have been working at SS&C full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    9-5 Work-life balance on off busy season. At latest until 9-10pm on peak season. Recommend if you are a family oriented person.

    Cons

    No staff advancement or development opportunities. Management have no concern about their people. I need more hand-on trainings, not from webcast.

    Advice to Management

    Your staffs are people, please treat them nicely.

    I worked at SS&C full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Nice people who have been lied to during the interview work here...some are happy volunteering and some just need to leave

    Cons

    Zero technology, training, support from management. Horrible morale across teams-love it or leave it mentality. Upper management will not listen to any sensible feedback to improve client/employee satisfaction.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up! If you want to keep your clients happy, keep your employees happy. Train, support, and make it a valuable experience for all! Otherwise, just fire everyone and hire people with no brain and pay them below minimum wages and expect them to work 24/7 and be happy.

    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.

    Pros

    None, except that you learn to appreciate the truly good companies out there, who care about their employee welfare.

    Cons

    The CEO has a lot to learn about Employee Relations.

    Advice to Management

    I don't even know where to begin. In need of entirely new leadership that actually has a clue how to lead a modern day business.
