Current Employee - Systems Administrator in California City, CA

I have been working at FIS full-time (less than an year)

Pros

*Steady work environment.
*Great job for someone fresh out of school.

Cons

*You are part of a team, but team members all reside in other offices.
*Coming from other IT roles you don't learn any new technologies.
*No new technologies can be a huge drawback for future employment opportunities.
*Procedures change frequently...then they change again.
Procedure process can be too involved to get something done for the people you are providing support for and often times find yourself waiting...which in turn makes you focus on getting other things done but your productivity really declines when you find yourself going back and forth.

    I have been working at FIS full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    ability to telecommute. For the most part the people are nice.

    Cons

    No career progression possible.

    Managers do not communicate with their employees.

    Management plans rollouts and determines product choices. Technical staff are rarely given the opportunity to plan product rollouts.

    Low pay. Horrilble raises. No bonuses. Health care plan gets worse each year.

    Company is cheap. There is no test environment. There is virtually no training.

    Lazy, stupid people are handed senior titles and kept and rewarded for years. Management forces the technical people to carry the lazy, stupid people for years. Management is fully aware they can't do the work, but instead of addressing the issue by putting pressure on them to work or firing them they just make their coworkers do their work for them. The technical people are then forced to do all the grunt work in addition to the more complex work.

    The workload is not balanced. Some people work their asses off while others do virtually nothing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Tech screen applicants and don't hire non-technical people for IT positions. Reward your performers with decent raises and bonuses and don't reward the lazy slackers. Fire non-performers. Invest in a test environment so production is not your test environment. Invest in training so your people are current on the latest technology. Stop saying you value employees and start showing you value employees by rewarding them and recognizing them.
