Smart and open people. Whit a good manager, that place is THE place.
Dynamic and ever-changing place.
IPO still generates hard feelings

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Compensation is excellent, Respect in the industry is high, Growth opportunities exist, Opportunity to gain new skills exists, Team spirit is high.

    Cons

    It can be difficult to balance career and personal commitments if signifigant advancement is important to you. Commitment to excellence is well rewarded.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep building bench strength and offering opportunities to grow to all levels of employees. Keep building the foundation and staying ahead of the curve to survive as the payment franchise paradigm changes.

  2.  

    Observe and Learn - Is almost non existent

    • Comp & Benefits
    • Work/Life Balance
    • Senior Management
    • Career Opportunities
    Current Employee - Business Leader
    Current Employee - Business Leader

    Pros

    Compensation and work-life balance is among the best (except for peak seasons, which is normal in the financial and retail industries). Future vision and change strategy in place is great and if executed correctly, will be an even better place to work.

    Cons

    Excessive management layers and bureaucracies. No true channel for bottoms-up communication. Observing and learning from successful companies (e.g. Google, Apple, Walmart) and avoiding pitfalls from companies that failed (Kodak, Polaroid, American Automobile Manufacturers) is almost non-existent because of too much pride and ego in the excessive senior management layers. Really score in writing TPS reports and justifications.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Walk the talk. The vision and strategy in place is great. Execute and pay attention to people who does the real work in the company.
