There are very few of us here who can say that they feel respected at DST. The managers are rude and extremely unprofessional. There are those who will say that this is just a job for which we are paid, but still, great employees need much more... — read more
Thoughts? Any DST Systems layoffs? Any chatter, news or rumors?
From: Thomas Musk To: Team Subj. All Software Engineers Date: Nov. 18, 2022 [time stamp removed] Anyone who actually writes software, please report to the 10th floor at 2 p.m. today. Before doing so, please email me a bullet point summary of... — read more
SS&C Overhauls Comp After Say-on-Pay Rejections Each of the firm’s top-paid executives will get a raise next year, a filing shows. By Joe Morris|October 19, 2022
I found that advancement in the DST org is almost non existant compared to what H.R. depicted when I interviewed. They lie!

Yes, I too know a few people who came back here after they left. I would never do that, not even if they offered me much better conditions. And apparently they offered much better conditions out of desperation to attract some people again?
How generous is the package? I'm asking because I don't know if anything has changed in the meantime in the severance policy.
Layoffs are going on right now. Nothing left of this company!
I hope there will be no more layoffs. I mean, people are leaving left and right anyway.
SS&C acquiring DST has not been a positive experience. Working from home during this Covid-19 crisis has given us time to reflect on the the things SS&C has done to DST. At the time of the acquisition we had many more clients, revenue and employees... — read more
Been with the company about 13 months, and I have no words for the technology. Shell execution, path not found, drives disappearing, restart/shut down, force close, “wait for response”, Global Protect disconnects, blue screen death, loss of data on... — read more
I used to be proud to work here. Not anymore though... Management seems to only know how to make cuts and nothing more. Small correction - they don't even know how to make cuts, because they mostly cut people they should be trying to keep at all... — read more
I was bored on the train, so I thought I'd take the moment to humble-brag about my wealth and charitable endeavors.
A return to office with record high inflation coupled with crippling gas prices & stagnate wage increases is nothing short of old CEO’s from a different era trying to strong arm the working class. These CEO’s are all in their 70’s and grew up during... — read more
If I don't get laid off, I will leave anyway. It makes no sense to stay in a company that has no future. Can you even imagine what DST will look like in five years? Unfortunately, I can't see anything good. Looks like fall is inevitable but aren't... — read more
I'll start, before I left earlier this year, I was a "Software Engineering Manager" L2 and my salary was $136,000 a year with about a $10k bonus. Sounds great but I hired in at $130k over 6 years prior, so three promotions, 6 years and 6k raise. The... — read more
I just saw on the news that employees of CHI Overhead door, a garage door company are getting $175,000 to $750,000 EACH based on their years worked as Nucor bought them! The average worker got a check for 5.5 times their annual salary. I am new to... — read more
You know you are an ill fit for your role when feedback from your previous townhall is that you aren’t taking questions seriously, you lack tact when addressing legitimate compensation concerns, and you make bully comments like “if you don’t like it... — read more
I won't lie, DST used to pay well, that's the main reason why I stuck around for as long as I have. However, that hasn't been true for at least a few years with pay increases that can only be called insulting. I've had enough and I'm planning to... — read more
What does it benefit the organization to have a hostile work environment?
I used to love working here. And then the SS&C takeover happened. Now that I’m leaving in a few days I wonder if everything would be equally as bad in this company even if that acquisition never happened? Some say that it wouldn't make much... — read more
Why are DST management blind as a bat? What is wrong with them? Were they born that way?
Now I'm worried about having a job tomorrow or the following week 24/7. This can't be good for our mental health.
If you work at DST expect more cuts in the future. Everyday management is trying to cut costs, which is easier than deriving new revenue and clients in this recession. I squarely blame DST's Senior management (AVP level and above) actions since 1979... — read more
I started looking a new job and managed to get a solid offer in a very short time. I didn’t leave because I think I can get one even better. So, it is possible to find a job in a reasonable amount of time. However, why go now and not take the... — read more
I am wondering, the posts here are bad. Whats the worse thing management did?
Has there been any news on May layoffs?
I know many have said this before but I'm going to reiterate that DST has a lousy culture. We have management that takes every opportunity to make us feel like we're replaceable and unimportant to the company. How exactly am I supposed to get... — read more
These executives held two damn town halls talking about cost of living raises, making pay more competitive with the market. And then want to hand out these 2 and 3 percent increases like they doing something for us. It’s time to get the f**k out. It... — read more
I am totally burned out. The pressure is so great and it's not worth staying here any longer. The other day I sent a bunch of applications. I've been doing a double workload here for months now because after my colleague left, DST still hasn't... — read more
Everybody on my team is burning the candle at both ends. I'm so tired all the time that all I do is work and sleep, nothing in between. Luckily I'm not married, but I feel bad for my colleagues who are. Their partners must be pi---d at them. We... — read more
I feel sorry for fresh out of college new hires who are getting their first work experience here. And it seems to be most of them. Almost no one with experience comes here anymore. Looks like DST now only hires fresh out of college candidates?
Anyone have any information on the dst lawsuit?
No wonder DST is laying off, It would take up to 15 million to make the building safe and habitable per the city. And we were working in that rathole!
It's been a long time since this company stopped investing in employees. It is a bit sad when I hear from friends who are in smaller companies, that even there they invest a lot more in employees than they do here. The consequences of this are... — read more
Sounds like the “option” of returning to office will no longer be optional, and managers/HR better be ready for a mass exodus. Strong arming is not going to work with the plethora of jobs currently hiring. I know lots of employees that will see that... — read more
I've made no progress since I joined DST. I've been working under not one, not two, but three useless managers in that time (you'd think I'd get lucky at least once), I had to deal with unrealistic goals and timelines, and I had to navigate probably... — read more
Candidates are ghosting DST. When they learn DST is not sincere and is laying off- well the candidates just never return DST's calls for interviews etc. Can you blame them?
