Business Analyst Consultant/Project Manager (Former Employee) – Kansas City, MO – November 5, 2018
Good place to work - recently bought out and job security gone. Management imposed deadlines that were unrealistic and required overtime to complete. Work environment relaxed - casual dress flexible schedules with some work from home opportunites
Customer Support Representative, Investor Services (Former Employee) – Quincy, MA – November 14, 2018
I worked in the call center for DST/ BFDS. It was a fun fast paced environment. I learned alot about benefit plans. It was nice to interact with the participants on the phone and help educate them about their choices.

Control Senior Specialist (Former Employee) – Braintree, MA – October 27, 2018
slave driven enviroment....not accomodating to new hires who come down with illness...let go before even given the opportunity to provide sufficient documentation for illness...under my probationary period so while I understand their needs, do not believe they believed me nor gave me the time to provide.
I am one of the few employees who actually enjoyed going to work everyday,
Senior Business Systems Analyst (Former Employee) – Kansas City, MO – October 18, 2018
I loved my job. My direct leadership team was amazing. They trusted in the ability of their team to do their jobs. We had a fun team. We worked tons of hours and travel was part of our job. We all worked well together and felt we had a great work family The sale of the company to SSC technologies seemed to leave the employees without clear leadership. From The announcement of the sale until the first RIF at the end of June there was a feeling of doom and the SSC leadership did little or nothing to stabilize morale.

Technology Operations Specialist III (Former Employee) – Kansas City, MO – October 9, 2018
DST was a very inspiring, employee caring, and had so many opportunities until the change in leadership occurred in 2014. Benefits prior to 2014 include profit sharing, stock option, Good Friday holiday. There were lots of opportunities for advancement, training. The company took care of the employees and the employees took care of the customers.
Investment Control Liaison III (Current Employee) – Canton, MA – October 8, 2018
DST is a great work environment overall. However, the pay and lack of job advancement opportunities are a bit damning. Management is fairly carefree, but it seems one can get stuck with no advancement.
No opportunities for advancement, non-competitive pay
Investor Services Representative (Former Employee) – Kansas City, MO – October 6, 2018
Current employees were not supportive of new employees that were still in training. When a current employee was told to assist with training a couple of new employees, they told their manager "No!" They proceeded to make the new employees' time at DST as difficult as possible. They worked to get rid of any new employees brought onto their team.
IT Asset Manager (Former Employee) – Kansas City, MO – October 3, 2018
Over the years, there were many opportunities to expand my experience and knowledge. Some were lateral and some were promotions. These opportunities were not always presented to me, but I initiated the communications. I found that others were open to hearing about recommendations to improve processes that moved the business forward.
Recently, DST Systems was purchased, so more than likely, there will be drastic changes to merge the companies and culture. In any merger situation, it will require quite a bit of flexibility and compromise during the transition.
Mutual Fund Representative (Current Employee) – Lawrence, KS – September 19, 2018
This company tends to be very flexible and work with your schedule which is great for new students.The pay isn't amazing but is decent for a college student. The work is physically easy as it only requires desk work on a computer; however, depending on what you do, it can range from dull to complex. It has many great characteristics as long as you view it as a stepping stone in your career.
Flexibility with your schedule and comfortable work environment
Not a lot of room to move up and can be boring after a while
