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    Technology is quite outdated with no real clear path to getting better.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