Poor Leadership, Great People, Outdated Technology
Software Engineer (Current Employee) – Utah – September 24, 2017
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).
Associate (Former Employee) – Harrison, NY – February 8, 2016
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 Fridays
Mgmt, Office culture, Tedious work, high turn-overs
Company has a lot to learn about loyalty and expansion
Associate Manger (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – April 13, 2015
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 benefits
No training, No managerial leadership, A cover your own back mentality made for bad morale across the board
Fund Accounting and Operations Associate Manager (Current Employee) – Harrison, NY – August 27, 2014
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 Fridays

This focus streamlines the day to day process in order to allow more flexibility for employees which increases moral and assists in job satisfaction.
OTC Derivatives Temporary Employee (Current Employee) – New York, NY – February 13, 2013
Working at SS&C GlobeOp has given me the opportunity to acquire a broad understanding of the middle-back office fund-admin services provided for hedge funds, corporate treasuries and pension funds. The culture of the company encourage success in all employees as personal growth is a core value.
structured process oriented workflow , means business
