      Pros

      Nice people, interesting job challenges and overall good benefits.

      Cons

      Since SS&C acquisition of Advent the great "Bay Area" culture that there used to be in the old days has now disappeared and since then a lot of people have left. Several managers might have good technical skills but are incompetent in managing people.

      Pros

      The culture of the company in Europe was the best attribute for people's interest in staying long years in the company . Very cool environment and enough challenging for those who are ambitious . Smart and very nice people to work with . Great work environment

      Cons

      Management decisions sometimes are disconnected from employees feedback . Reorgs continues for the last two or more years . With recent acquisition another reorganization happened both in Europe and USA , and no one is sure if a few more waves will follow as SS&C starts getting more involved in the business

      Pros

      Flexibility, hard work and dedication are appreciated and rewarded in salary as well as flexibility towards the employee. Extremely client focused organization that knows that sales will follow if clients are satisfied.

      Cons

      Mostly great products, but some of them have been suffering from lack of cooperation between product teams in the past, and maybe also too easy wins on the old starship. Since a few years developing the products with far greater speed. Not many career opportunities.

      The top leadership of this company aim for slow consistent growth and a focus on the product.
