Topics regarding layoffs at DST Systems

New VPN = Complete Garbage

Clients paying for our services need to run. This new system we are forced to use is going to make all of our systems crumble. Testing and submitting ticket after ticket after ticket to our teck team is a joke. Their responses are “no updates, no... —  read more

Only if you have no other option

I am finally leaving this company, counting down the last days here and thinking a bit what from my experience would be good advice for someone considering applying here or for new hires?!?!? *DST has become a company only for those who have no... —  read more

Workload is brutal

I decided to give notice because my mental health was starting to suffer. Working hard doesn’t mean doing work for three people. Worst of all, here if they see that you manage to somehow finish that pile of work, usually working extra hours, they... —  read more 

Golden years

I came here shortly before the pandemic started and at first I thought the problem was in me and it would take me a while to get used to the new environment. Nope. I plan to give notice early next month. Purely out of curiosity I wonder now if... —  read more 

Let them leave

If people want to leave the company for whatever reason (and I think we all know what I'm talking about,) let them! What's the worst thing that can happen? The rest of us will be safer? There'll be fewer layoffs? Honestly, just let people do what... —  read more 

September layoffs at DST

Rumors are starting again about possible layoffs before the end of the month. I'd like to avoid worrying if I can, so if somebody here knows if there is any truth to this, please share. I don't want to start stressing over somebody's overactive... —  read more 

Merit Farce Part 2

Results are in, if you are on shore and you get more than 1% then you did really really well! If you're offshore, the most you probably got was 10%, but hey that's ok, you can walk out the door and double your salary, so certainly don't waste your... —  read more 

Is it still a thing?

Is DST still relying strictly on cuts to boost up profitability? It didn't work while I was there and I seriously doubt that it works now, but I wouldn't be surprised if they're stubbornly sticking to it. DST never had a good leadership team that... —  read more 


Why does DST continue laying off people based on their pay instead of their productivity/knowledge/experience? I keep seeing the same thing happen. They get rid of people who know their jobs inside out and then they have to hire two people to replace... —  read more 

If you quit recently

and you by some chance still visit this page (or maybe you know somebody who quit) any chance you can describe the exit process? Are the two weeks necessary or do they tell you to leave immediately? Is there an exit interview? Do they care why we are... —  read more 

Consequences of layoffs?

They laid off mostly the best people from whom much could be learned and left those who not only do not have the capacity to do the job, but are not much interested in their job either. That is my impression. As far as I am concerned, this... —  read more 

Affordable Care Act Supplement

Has anyone been able to receive the additional weekly $300 under the Affordable Care Act? My understanding is that DST/SS&C has to acknowledge the last layoff was Covid-related when responding to the unemployment claim. If they do, the additional... —  read more
