    I worked at Fundserv full-time

    Pros

    Management is quite poor, to the point of absurdity.
    The people are generally nice (this is perhaps thanks to having the shared burden of working under awful management).
    Very stable. For non-management types, you can expect to work here a long time if you are competent and don't rock the boat.

    Cons

    Quite technologically backward.
    Many technical decisions are made/vetoed by people with no real understanding of all the issues.
    Project management is basically a coordination team with no real PM'g involved.

    I have been working at Fundserv full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    They pay you with real money
    Everything is a failure here so your own failures will not stand out
    The people are nice enough

    Cons

    The money isn't worth it. Every project is a disaster that results in corporate infighting, frustration and disappointment. We've spent numerous years and millions of dollars on a new product that only has two clients (because we bribed them to join)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit trying to make working here like working at a startup by providing useless perks. At a startup, you can't afford to carry dead weight and people are motivated by working with talented people. You clearly don't understand where your talent is and where the dummies are.

    I worked at Fundserv full-time

    Pros

    The people are nice and the location is great. They have an appreciation for work life balance and try to set up many social activities. The training is ok but people are happy to help if you have a question.

    Cons

    There is a serious project and management issue. New product or update development is excruciating due to poor planning and management infighting. As a result, few projects are successful and those who do succeed are almost exclusively updates to existing products. Managers are in a constant power struggle and projects get caught in the middle. It's demoralizing to work so hard for something you know will be a failure.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Figure out how to make the projects more successful.
