    I worked at Harland Clarke full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    good pay, decent benefits. A few good 'seasoned' people are still there....riding it out until the company goes under or they can retire, whichever comes first.

    Cons

    Dying business that recently went from public to private ownership. Mgmt instructed to cut costs in order to survive. This includes moving a lot of the work to newly acquired company in India. They are in the process of selling all their real estate and moving remaining staff to leased spaces or having them work from home. hmmm. Wonder what the long term plan is???

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Expect an upswing in resignations after mid March, bonus or not, and major fall-out when the economy turns around. Of course, this may be exactly what RP wants....I just feel bad for the folks that DON'T leave. I mean really, what is worse, getting layed off or having to work 60-70 hr per week with no relief in sight? The stress is unbearable. It's not like there's gonna be some prize at the end.

    I have been working at Harland Clarke full-time

    Pros

    Caring environment most of the time
    Willing to promote from within
    Acknowledgement for doing well - very concerned with employee recognition

    Cons

    They're more worried about the business than personal/family life a lot
    Very strict about security - no cell phones out, no matter what
    Hire strictly through contracting agencies for specialist positions
    Sometimes hard to move up - really have to stay on management for well-deserved promotions

    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO
