    Pros

    You might think business software is boring. Here's what I've discovered. Anything can be boring if you're surrounded by the wrong people. Jack Henry is not one of those places. Everyone likes what they're doing. And most of the people have quite a bit of experience doing it. The software development teams are dynamic, and work with the latest technologies. The people are fun. It's the first place I've worked in years where I feel relaxed. You start out with a liberal vacation plan. And they really encourage you to take it. You can work from home when you need to. You get current training, and are always encouraged to learn more. Dress is casual, so jeans and a t-shirt most days.

    Cons

    Upper Upper management can be a bit stiff. But they usually come around.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Salaries need to regularly checked against the market.

    Pros

    Ethical management decisions, very competitive benefits, and a great workplace environment. JHA was my brass-ring before I got here, and they have proven, close to a decade later, to still be my favorite company. They respect hard work, customer service, ethical decision-making, and a common passion for excellence. They really stand by their mission, and continue to reinforce "Do the Right Think, Do Whatever It Takes, and Have Fun."

    Cons

    Following the industry, benefits have tightened up. Certain departments have been known to hold onto the "dead weight" people for too long, but this patience with under-performers COULD be considered "a positive," depending on what side of the fence the person is on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I advise to keep up ethical decision-making, opportunities for advancement, and advancing the company. Not all managers are leaders, and I advise that upper managers continue to help train managers, who want to grow into great leaders.

    Pros

    As a long-term employee of the company, I have seen my income, and career progress in exciting ways! Management truly cares about employees and the customers we serve, and conveys a sense of always considering alternatives when evaluating internal and external decisions.

    Cons

    The biggest challenges is people that would rather complain than contribute to the company or team success. Honestly, there are plenty of other places to work. If you have cause for concern or complaint, then please get out of our company. We would much rather work along side of someone that wants to be here and has pride in our company and solutions. Let's be honest... if you gave this company a single-star rating or wouldn't recommend working here, you probably are an 8-to-5 employee that is doing the bare minimum and fear a forced departure any day now anyway.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't allow sub-standard employees to remain in our midst. Develop a clear career-progression path for employees that aim to succeed.

    Pros

    Plenty of opportunities for training and growth. They live by their motto Do The Right Thing, Do What it Takes and Have Fun. One of the Top 100 Places to Work.

    Cons

    Always more stuff to do than you have time for. Headcount and load are always in need of balancing. Some people end up working all the time (after hours).

    I have been working at Jack Henry & Associates full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Many of the Pros are going to pertain specific to my job. Flexible hours, ability to work from home, extremely competitive salary, great team to work with/on, and excellent leadership in management.

    Cons

    I have been with JHA for over a year now and loved every minute of it. I know it doesn't sound possible, but there are no drawbacks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I am well compensated for my position - and get 19 days off a year + all federal holidays. I personally wouldn't mind the responsibility of management or being promoted, but am very happy where I currently am and when my time comes I will be patiently waiting.

    I have been working at Jack Henry & Associates full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    I absolutely love the corporate culture and values that JHA represents. I have so much pride in our way of doing business - Do the Right Thing, Do Whatever it Takes, and Have Fun. The benefits are stellar, and the opportunities for advancement are amazing. I could never have imagined the opportunities I've been given during my tenure with JHA many years ago when I joined the team.

    Cons

    With our phenomenal growth through the years, we have sometimes struggled to speak with one voice, particularly following acquisitions. I believe our executive management still works on unifying our front and communicating and disseminating our corporate culture out to newly acquired employees and newly hired employees. I think our unique culture is our single biggest differentiation, so it is critical that we all share this as a common value and language.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing! Love, love, love JHA.

    I have been working at Jack Henry & Associates full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    My manager puts a lot of emphasis on proper work-life balance. Benefits are good. I am given a lot of freedom to make the job what I want it to be. Ideas are heard and seriously considered.

    Cons

    Growth opportunities are limited, especially in my area of the company. Management can be overly conservative on some issues. There isn't as much synergy within different divisions of the company as there could be. For a company that is primarily technology oriented, it can be a bit backward technologically. I think a big part of that is dealing with the challenges of maintaining a secure environment with a company that has 5000+ employees spread over the entire U.S. Pretty much anything that is cloud-based is forbidden, so useful tools like Evernote and Dropbox are not allowed.

    Pros

    The company is a tremendous company to work for. They truly care about their employees and their goals. The one thing that really stands out to me is the fact that when a lot of our competitors were laying people off a few years ago because of the economic down turn Jack Henry didn't. we all had to tighten the belt some but it is better than having no belt to tighten. The benefits are great and some of the best in the industry. You can advance if you are willing to work. Promotions opportunities come to those who work for them. The majority of all our management team has been here several years and so it gives hope that you can advance into roles as your knowledge advances and the need arises.

    Cons

    There are no real cons that I can think of.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the course. Remember the greatest asset we have is the people. We can have a great product but if we do not have the great people that we have supporting us it is all useless.
