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 leaving or not? Thanks in advance!

I gave two weeks when I left. I transitioned everything as best I could but the rest of my team refused to train on some of the things I did, so they were on their own.
I remember the exit interview being very brief. It was a joke, but I highly recommend doing the requisite two weeks because you may need those positive references one day.
When my spouse left, they gave a generous 4 week notice. They were a director so they knew they’d need to help those they were leaving behind by getting everything transitioned (probably one of the last directors at DST to genuinely care about their team and peers). SS&C never really asked why they were leaving because they KNEW well enough. They know what they’re doing in how they’re treating DST employees.
just do the right thing, remember that one day you may need someone to be a reference, etc. blowing out isn't the way to leave. @ SS&C no one cares though. my HR exit interview link didn't even work - fitting ending really. I'm sure behind the scenes folks are thinking - YES we don't have to pay severance, let em leave... helps with cost reductions, etc.
I gave two weeks, not sure if it’s “necessary.” I’ve always been told to give the two weeks as to not burn bridges.
I did not get an exit interview from HR, only a survey to fill out right before my last day. Who knows if anyone actually read it. Nobody really seemed to care when I left.
