I worked at TSYS

Pros

Excellent time off policy, Benefits competitive within the industry, Many chances to grow your knowledge, Working with international clients, Some very smart colleagues, Challenging work

Cons

Very low pay. Be careful beginning your career here because your compensation will affect your future earnings.

Lots of dead weight in the company. Even after layoffs, plenty of non-contributors remain, often getting promoted with raises.

Knowledge and expertise are concentrated in just a few people. Sometimes it could be very difficult to find the true answer to a complex question because only one person in the entire 8k+ organization knew it.

Too many "new projects" that were eventually dumped. Resource pooling a complete failure because it further threatened expertise levels.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Increase compensation. Encourage regular culling of non-performing resources rather than waiting for layoffs. Reconsider having so many levels of organization because it makes it very difficult to get anything done.

    I worked at TSYS

    Pros

    Good place to work for new college grads to earn experience. If worked at TSYS, can work easily in any part of the world.

    Cons

    Low Salary
    Low to no increase/bonus plans
    No growth, revolving door, no career path
    No work life balance
    No flexible time off or work from home except for management
    Promotions given mostly on favoritism of individual and select departments

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Drop the favoritism and look at the real root causes of issues. Listen to employee suggestions for improvement.
    Get a clue about running a company.
    Spend some money on your employees in pay and have a real career path
    Step outside the box sometimes. Hire from outside to bring in new ideas and originality.
    Play a key part in the daily operations and have an understanding of the daily work load.
    Talk to lower level employees more.

    I worked at TSYS

    Pros

    - OK pay and benefits
    - Some good knowledgeable folks

    Cons

    - Highly political environment. Your opinion does not count if you are not on good terms with the "in" crowd. In fact if you rub the "in" crowd the wrong way, you are pretty much assured that you stay will be miserable
    - Lots of finger pointing and blaming going around. Middle management especially is very good at the blaming and pointing fingers and have not qualms about "throwing folks under the bus"!
    - Constructive criticism is not encouraged, in fact, anything you say might be twisted and construed negatively and you will get reprimanded (constantly)
    - You have to be very careful when you talk to you team members because you never know when one of them would take your comments and twist them around and relay them to the middle management.
    - As one of the reviewer's mentioned - you are expected to work long hours and weekends. In fact you have to ask for weekends off.
    - As another reviewer mentioned - lot of folks are on H1B so they tolerate the "slave shop" environment.
    - Change is constantly promised but never happens - people who suggest changes are not encouraged, in fact they are constantly put down.
    - Avoid this place at all costs. I left a thriving career at a great company to come here thinking I could accomplish some changes. Don't make the same mistake I made and I wish I had known about these things before joining.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Fire all the folks in your middle management team and bring in a new team with new perspectives and fresh ideas towards managing people
    - Don't encourage the finger pointing and blaming that goes on, make the management accountable to their actions.
    - Foster trust amongst the employees by making them comfortable in providing new ideas without fear of reprimand.
