I have been working at Heartland Payment Systems full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Because HPS is a small company that grew up, there is more openness to new ideas and processes. Senior Management, from the CEO down, have high integrity and really care about the employees. Work/Life balance is very good for most people. I've been promoted significantly which shows the company does try to promote from within.

Cons

Because HPS is a small company that grew up, there aren't established policies for some things, with the exception of security and card processing functions of course! The company is still trying to find the balance between benefits, salary and bonus. Security is always a concern, and is part of everything that goes on here.

Advice to Management

Offer some smaller benefits that have high perceived value and are affordable to be more in line with other companies in our space. Increase salary and decrease bonus, or find a way to minimize tax impact for highly bonused leaders.

    Pros

    Most of call Ctr seems to actually try to help reps when they call in with account issues. As far as call Ctr helping merchants....lacking in that dept!! Majority of the call Ctr employees have never worked out in real world and can't relate or empathize with the merchants on line who need help and need it quick. Good payroll product.

    Cons

    Outdated and incompatible products Ridiculous reporting games that are nothing but fluff numbers for stockholders Incompetent management through out company. No distinctions to help separate Heartland from competitors in field Reps are lied to about "cost" Never actually paid what you are owed Horrible health insurance plan False installs pushed by management to make end of month numbers look good but attrition tells true story Serious HR issues are swept under rug Leads are funneled to new hires so they appear to be successful hire. Veterans are never rewarded. Merchants have NO local service Heartland PURCHASES its endorsements ! Poor residual plan Worse Gift/Loyalty program in industry

    Advice to Management

    Get off your computers and phones and get out in the field and actually do what you require of your team. Lead by example and quit the pathetic ride on the "tall tales" of when you were in your glory days. Your making fools out of yourselves.

    I have been working at Heartland Payment Systems as an intern

    Pros

    To touch the production data and best thing is you get the chance to touch almost every thing from SQL, Asp.Net, ASP, C#, javascript, and JQuery etc. Good place to get some practical experience in a very friendly environment.

    Cons

    open floor environment and usually its very noisy. Keep stock of Tylenol all the time :).
