I worked at CheckFree

Pros

Excellent work-life balance. Good benefits. Interesting work and good co-workers.

Cons

It has recently being acquired by Fiserv. Since the acquisition they have outsourced 50% of software engineering. When I was working for CheckFree there was no career path for technical people. Additionally, it was nearly impossible for technical people to move to different functional areas within the organization. Training was advertised as excellent when it was a joke most of the time.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Try to estimulate learning within the company. Allow the opportunity for people to move internally.

    I worked at CheckFree

    Pros

    You will be working with a lot of very nice smart people. Some of your colleagues will be extremely well-educated and intelligent. The work can be very challenging, but there is usually little sense of great pressure. Permission to take earned time off is freely given. "Office politics" at the level of the average worker seem to be minimal. The compensation is competetive (however, see next question). Educational funding is available, and the usual benefitsi package is available. Most management personnel seem to be competent and are in their positions because of this competence, not as a result of favoritism.

    Cons

    There are periodic layoffs in spite of profitable business results, so even when business is good, any sense of job security is fragile. The compensation is not outstanding; if you can do the work at CheckFree, you can probably command a higher salary to do similar work elsewhere in the financial services industry, at least in "normal times," not what we are experiencing at this date.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your workers as human beings.

    The best reason to work for CheckFree is flexibility in work schedule. We get to work around our daily life's routine.

    Cons

    Big companies have hard time in getting things done b/c decisions need to be made at the large scale.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make good and sound decisions for the company.
