    Nice people, high expectations

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Canton, MA
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Canton, MA

    I worked at Computershare full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Basically a very nice group of people. Even upper management is generally approachable and they do try to listen to the concerns of the employees.

    Cons

    The company is constantly trying to expand and this makes for some very onerous work schedules trying to meet deadlines. Some areas are highly political, with favoritism quite apparent. Training in many areas is inadequate, leaving people to train themselves as best they can while trying to accomplish tasks in areas where they have little expertise.

  2. Going through the motions. Good job bad career.

    I worked at Computershare full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Compensation is good and the relaxed dress code is a nice benefit to have on hot summer days or very cold winter days.

    Cons

    New hire training is very long winded and a lot of time wasted sitting around waiting for system to work properly. Quarterly training is irrelevant because employees understand that management doesn't take into a account quarterly test scores in yearly review. Office moral is very low due to lack of communication by the managers. Very hard to advance within the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Why do employees have to attain manager written approval to apply for other jobs within the company? Management engage the employees and ask for feedback. Employees are frustrated about favoritism and lack of communication by managers. One employee said the managers act like a sort of "secret society" and I tend to agree.

    Former Contractor - Anonymous Contractor
    Former Contractor - Anonymous Contractor

    I worked at Computershare as a contractor (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits. There was a great lack of communication between management, all the way down to the engineers or DBAs. Business had zero understanding of IT and IT has no insight in business.

    Cons

    This place will pigeon hole any position and make it impossible to grow. After years of pushing to grow, I gave up and left the company and have made stellar strides since.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Good people will leave if they aren't recgonized and nurtured.

    I worked at Computershare full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Room for advancement, good work colleagues, interesting work and good time off benefits. In locations with multiple work groups great opportunities to advance or do different jobs within the company but if you started in a job below the pay band don't expect ever be paid what you should be.

    Cons

    The compensation if you advance from within is poor, the company pays in the proper pay range for a position if they hire from outside but not internally.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Proper compensation goes a long way to an engaged and motivated workforce.

    Hierarchical structures with bureaucratic processes. Minimal financial incentives. Lacks employee motivations and professional training. Needs team building across teams.

    I have been working at Computershare full-time

    Pros

    The people here are incredibly easy to work with and answer any questions or provide assistance whenever you need it.

    Cons

    The workload is extremely heavy, partly due to circumstance (company acquisitions within the past year), partly sue to seasonal workload (tax season), and partly due to being understaffed.
