    The first year there was good but then came Fiserv

    Senior QA Analyst (Former Employee) Norcross, GA

    ProsReduced breakfast and lunches. Activity center with pool tables, employee lounge, basketball court and Racquetball. Employee appreciation days. Everyone was friendly. Telecommute options. 401k match. Flexible schedules.

    ConsHad to endure surviving three rounds of layoffs when the outsourcing began. Anywhere from two the three jobs will be given to you but you will get a average to below average review because you did not go above and beyond at either one. Kind of hard to do when you are spread thin. No annual pay raises were given. Health insurance costs rose dramatically. Did not see many opportunities for growth.

    Advice to Senior ManagementOutsourcing is not always practical. Give employees that are busting it performing multiple jobs something every year.

    collections

    ProsPeople were great in the group. late shift pay difference.
    Took good care of employees, cheap lunches, free pop machines, apperciation days

    ConsNot being able to say who you truly work for. Got old stating your bill pay service, the banks didn’t want you to state right away that they outsourced their online banking.

    Stagnant, better pay elsewhere

    Account Executive (Former Employee) Baltimore, MD

    ProsFreedom and a relaxed corporate culture

    ConsNot enough territory or leads to make quota

    Advice to Senior ManagementNeed more lead generation. Reps do not have enough opportunities in most territories. Territory allocation is highly unbalanced so a few will always succeed and most will fail.

    A good big company in a good industry, if you're into that sort of thing.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Norcross, GA

    ProsTheir products and services improve people's lives by enabling better financial management.
    Most of the people are competent, caring, and respectful.
    Beautiful campus with unusually good amenities for the Southeast.
    Good business model and market share.

    ConsLittle to no chance for meaningful equity participation below the executive management level.
    Limited equity upside given size and slowness of company relative to other options.
    Now a part of Fiserv, an even larger and slower company based in Milwaukee.
    Senior management tends to micromanage as if it is a much smaller company, limiting decisionmaking, innovation and risk taking.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet out of the way. Let people take more ownership and reward risk-taking behavior. Remember the customer in everything you do.

    Good working environment

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Jersey City, NJ

    ProsGood people, working environment. Will prove a good foundation for a career in financial services without having to work all hours.

    ConsTechnology is quite outdated with no real clear path to getting better.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep and reward those most knowledgeable with your technology - these are the folks that can really drive value for your clients.

    Software Developer (Former Employee)

    ProsCheckfree offfered their employees free lunch tickets. The company picnic was nice. The Office location was comfortable and the location was convenient.

    ConsThe management was inexperienced and the software was archaic , buggy and poorly designed. There were not enough employees to support the various technologies.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDo not promote inexperienced people to be managers and if you do so give them managerial training so they have some idea of how to be a manager.

    No decision makers or leaders exist at CheckFree.

    Business Analyst (Current Employee) Chicago, IL

    ProsFlexible schedule for work/life balance

    ConsNo communication between management and subordinates. Benefits are terrible. Employees pay most of the premium for health insurance which doesn't cover much in benefits. HR department doesn't have any clue to policies of the company. Management is incapable of making decisions and once decisions are made, they change like the weather. Policies in place are only for the benefit of management. A lot of dead weight in management. No decision makers or leaders exist at CheckFree.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop hiding information from subordinates. Develop a true business model of managing a company and stop letting clients get services for free because you do not want to upset them. And get rid of dead week such as VPs that do nothing put sit in their offices on the phone. Also encourage advancement throughout the company

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
