I worked at Fiserv full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Hardworking and talented colleagues made the workday enjoyable. Able to collaborate and work together to achieve goals, and many willing to pitch in and assist when an issue arises.

Cons

Lack of opportunity and pervasive attitude that you should be lucky you just have a job. Constant shuffling of people and positions makes everyone feel disorganized and frazzled. Half the time no one can even point you in the right direction. Poor job by management in structuring and communicating changes creates a toxic and political environment.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management is too concerned about advancing themselves with no clue what's really happening. Would be beneficial to the company if you actually cared about your employees.

    I have been working at Fiserv full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Good work-life balance. Opportunity to learn something new if you have the motivation.

    Cons

    Made up of a lot of small divisions. Below average benefits, especially health and paid time off. A lot of people with start-up or last job mentality. Certain groups highly political. ET is a bottleneck on all projects and leaves a lot to be desired.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get more involved with each division rather than focusing on the balancing sheet alone. Change the review system to promote the right people who can actually advance the firm.

    Former Employee - IT Manager in Dublin, OH

    I worked at Fiserv full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Compensation was a bit higher than most other IT companies.
    Paid Vacation time was higher than most other companies.

    Cons

    The department I worked in was managed by a person who held grudges and ran the department like a dictatorship. If you werent in his click, you didnt exist. If you were in the click and got on his bad side you were kicked out of the click. If you challenged his management decisions or didnt agree with him, not only were you kicked out of the click, but you were ignored and moved to a less revelant position.

    There are every year or every two year job layoffs. The IT director takes advantage of the layoffs and will layoff the people who challenged him or didnt agree with his decisions.

    While there were yearly performance reviews, compensation was not always tied to the ratings that were given on those reviews.

    All paid time off is lumped together in one bucket.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This isnt high schools and clicks shouldnt exist in the professional environment. People who hold grudges or are emotionally immature should not be in a management position.
