A former Senior Mutual Fund Representative/ Trainer from Kansas City, MO shares his/her experience working for SS&C Technologies, Inc. is a review published by INDEED: "The work is definitely not hard, but you are never paid what you are deserved. If you are a good employee it's even worse, because they try to take even more advantage of that. They kept adding to my workload but didn't want to change my pay. This was happening to more than just me. I worked hard and actually left the company on good terms. I just have previous co-workers still working there, that I know are not treated fairly or paid correctly."
Former Employee - Director says"All about revenue, which is understandable being a public company, but very little, if any, consideration given to employees. This is from the top down - CEO seems to suggest in his video series you’re lucky to have a job and should be grateful to get paid. Again, his right, but a tough pill to swallow when pulling massive hours using terrible systems while dealing with dysfunctional, disparate teams. It’s awful for all but a select few, but don’t plan to become one of the “chosen ones” regardless of what you accomplish."
Former Employee - Senior Associate says"There’s no incentive to go the extra mile. After going above and beyond after being acquired by SS&C, I earned a promotion. The pay bump associated with that promotion I felt was far below market expectations."
Current Employee - Manager says"- Long hours with no additional compensation or appreciation - Sales and management have no clue what goes into the promises they make to clients and give no additional support to lower staff to support those promises - Managers are consistently asked to push staff to “just before they break” point - Zero support from upper management - Pitiful compensation and bonuses - Horrible technology - Any turnover is hired back in India which forces even more hours on the U.S. staff - little to no training despite numerous requests for additional training. - impossible to use the PTO given as you are always too busy - Little to no support for personal and family life - Way behind the times for FMLA"

Manager (Current Employee) says"They literally treat employees as dogs. Almost 16 hours of working even in upper levels. No ethics and values.Neither Indian holidays nor American holidays. Literally you work in all 3 shifts of a day especially if you are not in IT department there. No one care for your health. Just work work workNoneSo many that i cant type here"

Associate Manger (Former Employee) says"The client always comes before the SS&C employee. No matter what. They know the east coast, but they recently expanded to the west coast and it's been a disaster. They lifted out employees from the client out here and they all left. There is no leadership in the LA office and they continue to put band aids on issues. The client holds the leash out in the LA office more than in most situations because the client is very high value. You would think with a client so important that they would provide a path of training and have an actual manager on site. They don't. The management team is on the east coast and doesn't know anything about what goes on day to day. The hardest part of the job was that management didn't have your back in tough situations. They would throw you under the bus in trying times. It's a me first mentality and a lot of yes men in positions of leadership. I enjoyed some of the people I worked with. Most were just there for a paycheck.Maybe the benefitsNo training, No managerial leadership, A cover your own back mentality made for bad morale across the board"

Associate - learning and development (Former Employee) says"The company has no organizational culture, HR has no role in the organization everything is handles by managers and senior management. No work life balance, they Drain out every single drop of energy from you. They do give a good bonus... But again there is no guarantee that you will get it since the top management decides everything.Good BonusEverything"
Manager (Current Employee) says"trickle down politics. The wrong people are considered important there. Which ends with the wrong decisions being made or the decisions made too late."
Associate (Former Employee) says"Inconsistent schedules leading to more late days than you wish to work. No direction or proper training for your role. The office culture is toxic, filled with mean girls and office bullies. Sink or swim is the motto. There's insane pressure set to impress mgmt leading to ridiculous expectations that you have to meet. Hardly any socializing is made. Work/life balanced not in favor of new hires, unless you prove yourself over an undetermined amount of time, for 'soft' benefits. Technology is sub-standard and makes tedious work, more difficult. High turn-overs with this office. There's job security if you can withstand the negativity. Good place for college grads with no experience.Free continental breakfast on FridaysMgmt, Office culture, Tedious work, high turn-overs"

Fund Accounting and Operations Associate Manager (Current Employee) says"Been doing the same job for 41/2 years even though I've received great yearly reviews, advancement is non existent. The best way to move up would be to quit and reapply from outside as that seems to be the only way to advance. I work with a lot of great people but upper management seems not to care too much about employees just profit margins. Salary is OK, but could be better.work/life balance is ok. Free breakfast on FridaysAdvancement is non existent"

Software Engineer (Current Employee) says"If it takes 20 seconds to tie your shoes, it will take 5 minutes at SS&C. There are hundreds of protocols, most of them arbitrary and unhelpful. The people are wonderful, for the most part. Management seems like it was cherry-picked from the mental-health clinic. I really don't understand how there can be so many good and hard-working folks, yet management is forcing us to step on landmines on a routine basis. The technology is behind the times. They are using software frameworks from 10 years ago (Silverlight, MVC 3, etc).The People.Management, Technology"
