Good work atmosphere. Great team members. Company gym! Lots of paid time off. I would highly suggest working here. They promote from within. They also allow you to have team lunches!!!

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

Great company for people who want to learn
Manager Fund Accounting (Former Employee) –  Windsor, CTMarch 13, 2018
Great company for someone who wants to learn and get ahead in their career. All you need is desire to make a difference and proper skill set. SS&C offers plenty of opportunities for learning and growth.

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

Don't do it.
Investor Services Associate (Former Employee) –  Evansville, INDecember 13, 2017
Whatever you do, don't work at this terrible place. It's mind-numbing and I'm embarrassed to have even worked there. The worst management I've seen in all of my years.

Company lacks focus
Professional Services (Former Employee) –  New York, NYDecember 11, 2017
The company lacks focus and structure. They reward complacency with promotions and upper management isn't hands on. I am amazed that the company is still operating with the lack of focus and structure that exists there.

Don't bother
Manager (Former Employee) –  NYDecember 7, 2017
If dealing with Clients is your thing then this is the place for you. Little support from management. No overtime compensation, even though you are expected to stay to satisfy Clients.

SS&C is a great company to work for. They treat you with respect. However, it is a stressful and face pace environment to work for. Great people working with you as well.
