Suggestions for improvement

  • Go private. Shareholders pushing bottom line results.

What I like about the company

Used to like the paid insurance, monthly birthday cake, free coffee and family atmosphere. No more.

What I dislike about the company

It has turned into another corporate job. More bosses than workers. Good workers are leaving in droves. Constant reorganizations to terminate people who actually work so the board can afford to hire more directors and officers.

Company Culture

There is no culture, unless you count "Working 50 hours a week? Slacker." as being culture.

Support from management

Upper management seemed very aloof. Some of the middle managers were good, but a large chunk of them were downsized in 2015.

Teamwork

The teams work together well despite management.

Freedom to work independently

Some groups were better than others at not micro-managing.

Internal Communication

Communication seemed very one-way. Comments upward seemed to have little effect, while upper management made sure their decrees were followed.

Company Culture

DST had a very good culture from at least 1993 (when I started there) until 2013 or so. Sadly, things have really headed south, largely due to a layoff in 2016 and several HR policy changes reducing vacation time and other benefits. Hopefully things will turn back around at some point (I'm writing this review in early 2017), but a lot of excellent, long-term employees left in the past year, and many more are looking for outside opportunities.

Suggestions for improvement

  • DST had a good history of employee treatment until recent years, so employees do remember that DST has been willing and capable of caring for their employees. Reconsider recent changes (vacation, retirement plan contributions, delayed annual performance raises, reduced promotion raise caps, etc.), and maybe even communicate an apology to the employees for going astray in your relationship with them. This company is hemmoraging talent as the good employees are pouring out of here in the past year.
