I have been working at Jack Henry & Associates as a contractor (less than a year)

Pros

Reasonable pay rate. If you are looking for a place that does not require much effort you found it.

Cons

Managers are not technical, ask the same questions repeatedly. Developers are given poor equipment making it hard to be productive. Decisions are either not made or are based on old web based decisions that should not move forward. Too few people in power with no checks and balances. Misuse of Agile development processes, just add up people and hours and pretend they will all work on any part of it. Treating programmers and QA as plug-n-play people. Not training people just tossing C# developers at Objective C and hoping for the best.

The company is solid and makes money but they could make a ton more if it ran with any sort of efficiency. Too many working from home are not productive and know how to play the system. Since the managers work from home too not much thought is given to any of it.

Basically frozen in time.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Resilo the company. Move QA and business decisions with the programming group. Cut back on working from home. Learn true Agile processes. Upgrade developer equipment. Take a hard look at the direction the company is taking instead of just riding the wave of monthly income.

    Pros

    Some folks have been there forever at other locations. Always heard good things, may be a great company out side of Kansas.

    Cons

    Disorganized, work long hours and it's expected on a regular basis. Lots of people leaving in multiple groups in Kansas. Some managers shouldn't be there in management. Manager ruled by intimidation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get your group managers under control, they are a liability to you from a legal stand point.
