    Intern

    Intern (Current Employee) Milwaukee, WI

    ProsIf you are just looking to gain experience for a summer this is the perfect place. Management liked me so much they extended my internship through the semester and were very flexible with hours. Very flexible about time just as long as you get those 40 hours in they don't care how or when.

    ConsCons: old school culture. If you are a young college graduate I would suggest to go to a young division within FIS like the mobile division.

    Overall, FIS is a friendly environment.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsFIS is a very friendly environment. The employees get along well with each other, or attempt to, as the employees treat each other with courtesy and respect. The benefits are ok, discounts through third parties.

    ConsEmployees do not get the large raises yet management continually receives 6 figure bonuses. It would be nice if that trickled down. There is no accountability when a job is not done. If you are a slacker employee, others have to do extra and there are no consequences to the bottom dwellers.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMeet with your employees on a regular basis. Find out who is doing what (or not doing) and hold them accountable. Incorporate absentee policies so the absenteeism is not abused or remove the slack.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    A Run of the Mill Company

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsIt's a large company and there are opportunities to move to other areas of the company.

    ConsManagement tends to use exempt employees as a free labor pool. It's not uncommon for exempt employees to work 60+ hours, six or days a week. Only executives and other select groups see any type of a bonus. Starting pay is usually at market, but increases are limited to 1-2%. In my first year, I was given an outstanding review, with no raise or other monetary compensation. There was no opportunity to train or further my skills aside from the CBT courses offered. Funding for instructor based training or attending professional workshops to sharpen skills is non-existent.

    Executive management rarely engage employees outside of immediate reports, organized town halls, discussion groups, or surveys.

    Advice to Senior ManagementChange the "top down" culture. Realize that exempt employees working 60+ hours need to be compensated. Would any of you executives continue to work ungodly hours if you didn't get anything other than lame FIS points as a thank you? Put yourself in the shoes of an exempt professional and ask yourself if you'd continue to work under those conditions.

    Some of you executives get bonuses of up to 150% of your base salary. The excuse I keep reading is that it's so FIS can attract top level executive talent. Well how about top level technical talent? I've watch dozens of top flight technical people leave because other companies recognize the value of that kind of talent and are willing to pay for it. This kind of churn cannot be good for product stability.

    Don't pretend that silly ice cream socials and other distractions are compensation and will satiate over- worked, underpaid exempt professionals. Particularly since you're paid a generous bonus.

    Working at FIS

    Product Director (Current Employee) Saint Petersburg, FL

    ProsChallenging and constantly changing, fast paced and high expectations, decent pay and benefits

    ConsLacks in employee development or investment, not focused on employee satisfaction, every 3-6 months employees are laid off to ensure execs make their bonuses, then they rehire 2-4 months later, company is numbers focused to a fault

    Advice to Senior ManagementIf they invested more in people, they wouldn't be constantly faced with dissatisfied employees that only want to give just enough to keep a paycheck....this poor cultural environment supports a vicious cycle of underperforming and then manipulation of the numbers to satisfy Wall Street and guarantee exec bonuses.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
