Pros

Support for working remotely.
Good Opportunities for advancement.
Great people and talent, access to great industry experience.
Excellent market reputation in some lines of business.

Cons

Lack of corporate direction since Fidelity/Metavante merger.
Pay, bonus, and benefits decreasing.
Managed like a portfolio of small companies, yet expects to act as one.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Address falling morale in high performing areas. Pay attention to competing with technology service providers and software companies to satisfy customers and employees, not industry averages.

    Pros

    It is nearly impossible to be fired. As long as you don't clock in and leave for the day (aka. steal from the company) or call someone in senior management a horrible name, you're pretty safe.

    Benefits are pretty nice as well, especially the vision plan as of 2011.

    An extra week of vacation after 5 years with the company. Your next week comes after 15 years of service.

    Cons

    Please keep in mind, all of this is only relating to the technology side of the house in St. Petersburg, FL.

    Annual reviews have not counted towards annual pay increases for the past 4 years. Instead, management has decided to give blanket increases to everyone, so it's "fair." For a company run and managed by so many capitalist republicans, this is workplace socialism at its finest.

    Extra work has been piled on people, which is to be expected. However, the "you should be thanking me you have a job" attitude that is given, when you attempt to push back, should never be accepted. There are limits to human efficiency.

    You will need to chart your own career path. This office is honestly filled with some of the nicest people I've ever had the pleasure of working with, but they can't help you move forward in your career. Not for lack of trying, but there truly is no where to go unless someone retires or dies. And even in those cases, the rule of thumb is that the business does not promote from within.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look to and encourage your top performers. Do not look solely for outside resources when new opportunities become available.

    Blanket increases are an insult to those who work diligently. Pay people based on what you believe their efforts are worth.

    Have HR start doing out processing from employees who leave the company, to determine their reasons for seeking a change. Otherwise, you will only be able to identify issues from public forums, such as this site.
