    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.

    Pros

    Health insurance & 401k is competitive.
    Many departments offer flex-time.

    Cons

    Senior management grossly compensated to the detriment of the employees.
    Career advancement nearly non-existent.
    No incentive to perform above and beyond. Bonuses do not exist for the rank and file, and you are lucky to be acknowledged.
    Culture of risk adversity to a fault. Innovative people need not apply at FIS!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Frank Matire has been compensated $68.6 million from 2009 - 2012. Unless he's the Steve Jobs of mobile payments, this is way out of line for a $10.5b company. Where is the proof that he and his cronies have added any 'alpha' to the bottom line? Sure, the EPS is up along with the stock price, but that is a product of being in the right industry at the right time, and exploiting employees through endless cost cutting.
