    I have been working at FIS full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    FIS is a nice place if you can find a good management team. They are going through some large process changes that sometimes seem to create difficulties in getting simple things done, but change is good. FIS is working very hard at securing any NPI data they are charged with protecting. I am involved with a great team and manager that still teats the employees as valued participants in the process.

    Cons

    Seems that the goal of FIS, at least in St. Petersburg, is to outsource all of the well paying technology based jobs. Though they keep the building full I can see the lowering of the salary base. It it my opinion that the St, Petersburg facility is on its way to being just a call center after all of the network, database, programming and project positions are moved overseas or turned into H1B employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I recognize that management has the 'fiduciary responsibility' to the stockholders to increase value,but this path only decreases the value of the employee and the USA in the long run.

    Pros

    I really like the people I work with. I think there are a lot of strong individuals at FIS.

    Cons

    The pay raise is virtually non-existent. Managers want you to give you best which is understandable but there are not incentives.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please look at the work your people are putting in and reward them with a change in title move them up in the company and bottom-line is the dollar please have a more growing pay raise.

    I have been working at FIS full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Opportunities exist due to rapid growth, especially in the Mobile and Overseas areas. Many talented co-workers, and a good mix of employees and contractors.

    Cons

    Rapid growth makes the product development cycles relatively short that sometimes cause high levels of stress near the release times that compromise work-life balance. Company employee continuing education is not a priority.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Due to the large and growing size of the company the silos often impede productivity. Also, one policy does not necessarily fit all areas of the company although due to the company size and geographic distribution this may always be a challenge.

    I have been working at FIS full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Work is not difficult.

    Cons

    To many managers worried about how the look and don't do the work. Managers are unfair and unprofessional. If you're not part of the group you're and outsider and laughed and talked about. Senor manager doesn't listen to employees about problems and conditions of facility. Lots of favoritism and unfairness.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to employees, without laughing about it on the floor. Keep your friendships out of the workplace. Learn how to be prrofessional , stop being one sided, there are always two sides to a story. Its not all about management its about working together.Provide better incentives not just to executives.pays lower than average for a fortune 500 company.

    Pros

    Decent starting salary, Good health care benefits flexibility to work remotely from home when you need to. Great co workers.

    Cons

    Very difficult to increase salary from what you start with. Merrit increase is only 2% accross the board for everyone in the company. If you move to a new position in the company, your salary for new position is calculated by a 3-5 % increase of your current salary, instead of being determined by the salary range set for the specific position you are moving to. Even if the new position is in a compleley different business unit or different organizational group. Only way to get any kind of significant increase is to quit and then be re-hired.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to improve focus on employee retention and employee job satisfaction. Need to provide compensation and benefits pkg that is more competitive with other companies in the industry.
