Pros

This a post-mortem review since they have recently been acquired by a larger player in the industry. They had been an employer, though misguided about how to guide and promote an associate, treated you with some fairness in work/life balance and salary. I say this with some reserve since it depended on your department.

Cons

Once again, post-mortem. Since the acquisition by a larger player the company is pretty much a shell of its former self. Most senior management has either been forced out or left at this point. The new company behaves like most take-over operations and has given remaining associates the rough side of the hand. If you work in the former HQ of CheckFree expect to see further reductions in head-count and to be marginalized if you are not key to management goals. More technical positions look to be the direction for this company. But beware due to the fact the new owner is known for outsourcing everything but the kitchen sink. Your lifespan may be short.

Advice to Management

Since most CheckFree senior management have already left I can't give much advice. Other than you timed your exit well in this industry. But, you sold out the company to a real lemon.

    Pros

    Great worklife balance, flexible schedules, good managers. Overall a great place to work. It is in the middle of change and some people like change, and others have real probles with it. But in this world of unemployment and layoffs, Fiserv is very strong financially and has a very strong gameplan.

    Cons

    Unclear vision, lots of acquisitions means lots of different ways of doing things

    Advice to Management

    Follow your stated plan, quickly and efficiently

    Pros

    Its a job and hell, you'll continue to get paid. As long as you sit there, you can be grossly incompetent and still do better than the person ready to move and get real work done. Overall, the idea is that if you stick around long enough, you might even get a promotion. People do get paid well if they stay long enough. The positions are pretty stable as long as you comply with the culture of "sit down, do your job, and don't worry your pretty little head with anything else" Overall, this is the sort of place for a person who is fairly lazy.

    Cons

    Lord have mercy. Ideas are shot down if they don't come from the top people. It doesn't matter if the person's knowledge is more solid, informed and relevant to the issues at hand. Furthermore, professional development is more or less discouraged. Don't worry, you won't be going to any classes. The folks there are miserable and are pretty open about talking to each other about it (but most certainly not to the management for fear of being fired). Overall, the culture is based around promoting fear and driving people like cattle. As it was said by my manager, "We're just trying to stay out of the unemployment line."

    Advice to Management

    You're going to go down in flames if you don't correct the gross mismanagement of talent. Eventually, the lack of innovation will lead to a stronger competition that you are unable to face.
