    I worked at CheckFree full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Reduced 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.

    Cons

    Had 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 ManagementAdvice

    Outsourcing is not always practical. Give employees that are busting it performing multiple jobs something every year.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Not 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.

    Pros

    Freedom and a relaxed corporate culture

    Cons

    Not enough territory or leads to make quota

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need 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.

    Pros

    Their 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.

    Cons

    Little 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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Technology is quite outdated with no real clear path to getting better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do 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.
