  1.  

    Lots of layoffs, which results in an absurd amount of overtime.

    I have been working at FIS full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good group of people, large variety of jobs with opportunity to transfer between departments, nice facility...

    Cons

    Upper management disconnected from what goes on in their department, too much overtime (for the last year I have averaged 16-24 hours of OT per month and often work 2-3 weeks straight), not all shifts receive the same benefits

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find out what is going on in your department from multiple people on all shifts. It will allow you to make better decisions and prevent mistakes.

    I worked at FIS

    Pros

    Only positive thing at FIS are the people that have survived all the Reorganization from poorly managed infrastructure. When FIS purchased EFunds, then Metevante, they left a strong ignorance in place starting with VP's/Directors/and management leaders. Many were displaced, and the strength of the company, was the people who survived.

    Cons

    Executive leaders are still thinking because they are the biggest, that the best will follow. Even after removing the ignorance in leadership, there is still no one there that can clearly state the vision and direction the company will take.
    Sorry Frank, you should have retired...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Although a layer of of executive ignorance was removed in the IT area, there are still too many dead weight managers riding it out. Plus the us and them syndrome needs to be remove, if you even know what I am talking about.

    Pros

    Hard to find any pros

    Cons

    Continuous layoffs, total chaos, no direction other than to cut/cut/cut so senior management can get more money. Total disregard of client needs due to the monopolized market position.

    Pros

    Good Pay
    Work/Life Balance
    Lots of nice and professional people work here.
    New CEO could potentially make this a better company.

    Cons

    Job Security is non-existent. In years that I have worked in this company we have had clients not renew their contracts which usually means you either find something in the company or get ready to get the boot. There are no contingency plans for this and I've seen some good people go because they do not plan ahead for something like this. Their commitment to being green and helping the community is only a PR thing. There's no real expectation or drive to either of those initiatives.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This culture of "there's no such thing as job security" makes people hate their job because you feel like and expendable drone. I would suggest setting a plan aside to keep talent in the company BEFORE you have to tell people to rush to find work elsewhere.

    Old school thinking. Employees who get exceeds reviews are treated as though they need to be watched.

    Pros

    uh....you get a pay check

    Cons

    Where do I begin---slavery is the first word that comes to mind. So many managers that micromanage. It is obvious that the managers do not have enough to do so they bird dog the employees. Provide the job to do and a reasonable deadline and get off the employees backs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more flexible. Where you have good employees especially. Let those that get the job done, work where they are most comfortable and when they are most comfortable.
