    Former Employee - Human Resources Professional in Orlando, FL

    I worked at FIS full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The employees are dedicated to doing a great job. Each site has its own culture and most are welcoming. In my job I was able to travel and see the world.

    Cons

    HR Management is in flux and doesn't care about the talent they are losing. For a huge company they are just starting to think globally and implement initiatives to improve their performance management system. They give very small raises and managers are discouraged to rate employees as exceeds. My last manager was a bully, I think because she was unsure of the role she was put into. Poor engagement programs and not a lot of appreciation of employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show that you care about your employees.

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

    Pros

    - GoodWork-Life Balance
    - Above average benefits

    Cons

    - No recognition for outperfomance
    - Annual pay increases are very low relative to other fortune 500 companies and inflation
    - Promotions occur very infrequently
    - Bonuses are plentiful at the executive level but if you're not an exec, good luck
    - Morale is poor enterprise-wide
    - Outsourcing operations are an abject failure; most resources are not qualified for their job

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your lip service indicating that FIS employees are valued is totally contradictory toward your actions. Get rid of outsourcing as the real and hidden costs far exceed the benefits.

    Pros

    Many growth opportunities; good teamwork; decent salaries compared to other companies in the area; employee stock ownership plan is well set up and rewards long term employment

    Cons

    The amount of work keeps growing, with the number of people to do it going down or unchanged. Stingy on addressing employee needs, such as health center, health classes during work, etc. Poor support for employee's personal development.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make the environment more friendly for employees by sponsoring fringe perks

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

    Pros

    - opportunity to grow if you work hard
    - flexible work hours
    - people are great where i work at . (This is a midwest so can't expect anything less)
    - great stock match program

    Cons

    - low salary increments.
    - only 5k assistance for masters program . That doesn't even cover for the books of a modern day MBA or MSc.
    - although people are nice to you there is discrimination against non white folks. There are hardly any managers who are of color or have an office. although, close to 50 percent of employees are asian/or other race. A lot of excuses when it comes to promotions. Same rules doesn't seem to apply for others
    - some people abuse the working from home option and flexible hours. None of them ever get fired or actioned on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make more informed decisions when cutting budget. Rather than cutting the budget and asking mid level management to get resource to do the same work with less $$
    Invest on real training and support MBA MSc and certifications

    Former Employee - Senior Project Manager

    I worked at FIS full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    comparable pay and benefits. good working environment. mostly good group of co-workers. internal opportunities for growth. opportunity to work remotely

    Cons

    seemingly (or realistically) lack of tactical planning. usually it's lack of strategy that is the problem at other companies, but at FIS it's lack of tactical. There are big plans, however not much thought, or not much organized thought on how to get there. middle management in some areas has little respect for employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    middle management needs to get some soft skills

    Pros

    FIS offers competitive benefits and services to its employees. Tremendous growth opportunities available through the different divisions in the company.

    Cons

    Raises are often small. Changing positions seems to be the only way to receive decent raises.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should be able to provide more significant raises to employees who excel in their position.

    Current Employee - Network Engineer in Little Rock, AR

    I have been working at FIS full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    I love working at FIS! Teamwork is a big part of the culture here. I work on my projects and can feel like I go approach anyone if I face challenges. Also, fellow engineers come to me for advice on project and issues they are working. I feel extremely blessed to work for a company that has so much confidence in theit employees. My management protects me from people outside my group from requesting too much from me and my team. They allow me to do my work and do not micromanage in the least bit.

    As for pay, I'm paid well above market value for Little Rock, and slightly above the national average for a Network Engineer. I also received a raise after only three months with the company. I can use my corporate card for whatever desk reference or certification material I need. They also bring in training. I feel extremely appreciated and that my work matters.

    The company is always having fun events for employees. Holiday parties, oktoberfest, tailgate events, food truck Monday, to name a few. The company is also highly charitable. They are always raising money for local and national charities.

    I hope to be with FIS for a long time!

    Cons

    I cannot honestly think of anything negative.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Thanks for the hard work!
