Great company to have a career with!
Fund Accountant (Current Employee) –  Windsor, CTNovember 2, 2018
I have been with SS&C for about a year and a half, and the environment and work-life balance are fantastic. Love the people I work with. Also have an excellent 401k match program. Definitely a company you can stay with and actually be happy at for the long-term.
Pros
Great room for advancement. The company is growing tremendously, and offers excellent benefits, PTO and work-life balance.
Cons
Would like to see more events outside of work, such as charity events, fundraisers, etc

Somewhere in between
Automation Specialist (Former Employee) –  Connecticut, WindsorOctober 16, 2018
Overall working culture is great since there is a lot of diversity. The issue is on how to train staff with new tools to use for work. Example, A programmer introduceses with new programing languege. He should be given time to learn and use the product instead of assuming that he can do it in short time
Cons
Healthcare is expensive, payrise and bonus are very low

Disheveled Company, Demanding Work for a Bad Salary
Investor Relations Associate (Former Employee) –  Windsor, CTSeptember 13, 2018
Not worth working here. Constantly understaffed with a growing workload. Everything is last minute, unorganized, and you will need to learn many things on your own.

Bad work culture....
Confidential Former Employee (Former Employee) –  Boston, MAJune 28, 2018
SS&C is not the ideal place to work if you're a seasoned professional, or someone who likes to work in a collaborative environment where ideas can be exchanged and fostered. It is the company you work for when there are no other options laid out on the table. Quite simply, don't work there unless you're at the end of the road in your career.
Pros
Decent salary
Cons
Horrible management.

Long hours and low pay
Accountant (Current Employee) –  United StatesMay 24, 2018
In Private Equity, you constantly work long hours even when not in “busy season”. The pay does not make up for the amount of hours worked due to being on salary with no overtime. Turnover is always high due to these issues and teams are always understaffed. Benefits are good which is the main reason a lot of people stay.

In Hedge Funds, things are a little different. The hedge fund department has a much more balanced work/home life. Hours are pretty close to 8 hrs/day. Most hedge fund employees are gone for the day before private equity employees have even thought about leaving.

Upper management doesn’t care how much you work as long as they retain the client. They boast about high margins and won’t hire more employees to be properly staffed because it would decrease those margins.

Despite the cons mentioned above, the work environment is still pretty good. Most employees are great and fun to be around.
Pros
Benefits, office events
Cons
Salary, no overtime, work/life balance, turnover

Productive and very good team work
GL Accountant (Temp) (Former Employee) –  San Francisco, CAMay 21, 2018
The GL accounting team in SS&C|Advent software company has a very strong team bonding. Since the first day I started working in the GL Dept., they have accepted me as one of their own. I was in this company to fill in for the staff who is in a long maturity. I was guided to do the various task such as Journal Entry on accrual, amortization and adjustment, in a mannerly time; Reconciliation on EE benefit as Flex spending, VDI; Analyst the fluctuation for the financial report.

Not a good experience
Senior Product-Specialist/Relationship Manager (Former Employee) –  New York, NYMay 7, 2018
In retrospect, i made a bad decision going to SS&C.
I was promised a more senior role than was discussed in interview process.
My hiring manager was let go 6 months into my hiring date, and it was downhill from there

None

Subpar company charter
Product Development (Former Employee) –  San Francisco, CAMarch 8, 2018
A typical day at work is flexible timing to come and go. Writing financial software for big financial institutions is pretty much a blah cause - pays the bills.

Young group of people - long hours
Financial Reporting Accountant (Current Employee) –  Evansville, INJanuary 30, 2018
SS&C typically hires kids directly from college and works them hard. The business is very complex and has very strict deadlines. Can get burned out if you allow the company to work you too much.
Pros
Lots of social activities
Cons
Poor work/life balance

Toxic work environment
Vice President (Former Employee) –  New York, NYJanuary 3, 2018
Due to so many acquisitions, many groups compete with each other and there is no team attitude. The company offers no management training and senior managers are encouraged to "get things done" regardless of means. This leads to very negative and at times hostel working conditions. If you are unemployed, by all means take a role with SS&C to get paid, but keep looking as SS&C does not encourage advancement nor competitive pay. If you have a job, as the saying goes "nothing to see here, move along" and keep looking elsewhere.
Pros
Pretty good benefits
Cons
Not competitive salary, poor management, hostel environment, no advancement or training
