Too much going on

Former Employee - Client Service Manager in Saint Petersburg, FL
Former Employee - Client Service Manager in Saint Petersburg, FL

I worked at FIS full-time

Pros

My team members were great to work with - dedicated, professional, always put the clients first and remained positive even in difficult situations.

Cons

Too many meetings causing far too many double-bookings, late arrivals, and no shows. Almost impossible to find an open slot to rebook. Makes getting projects and work completed very slow going. This is most likely because when people leave their work is often assigned to existing staff rather than filling the opening.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop focusing on your own bonus and give more recognition to the employees in the trenches.

    Pros

    Great experience from a systems perspective; due to numerous acquisitions over the last several years, FIS operates multiple accounting systems. Employees have stock options. Hours can be flexible for those not in management; okay work-life balance.

    Cons

    Benefits continue to get worse each year, especially medical benefits. For a Fortune 500 company, one would think the company would offer better benefits to its employees. Very limited mobility to get promoted from within; if you are more knowledgeable than your manager, you are viewed as a threat. HR will always support management regardless of how inappropriate decisions made by senior management may be, not worth taking the time to address your concerns with them. Increases are laughable, corporate standard 2% in 2011, which is always based on a bell curve and formulated so that no one ever “exceeds expectations.” Employees participate in quarterly meetings where the CFO talks about how well the company is doing and how FIS is #1 in the industry. Ironically, just before raises were given this year, the CEO gave a speech about how important the employees are, as if that was going to soften the blow.

    The company operates too many accounting systems, and very little has been done over the last three years since the merger with Metavante, to consolidate those systems and branding continues to be inconsistent.

    Legacy Metavante employees act and behave as though they are working for a smaller company and forget that we are all one company; the mentality of employees is very narrow and they forget we are a company with 30K employees.

    Business units operate as if they are separate from FIS and Sales runs the show; they are not required to adhere to company policies and procedures or very little is being done to address the inconsistencies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop talking about appreciating your employees and actually do something about it, for example, provide better benefits. Give increases and acknowledge those that deserve it. The same old song and dance is getting old and you are losing valuable employees.
