    I worked at Harland Financial Solutions full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Benefits weren't terrible, and pay was commensurate with similar positions at other companies, though you couldn't expect a yearly merit increase.

    Cons

    No growth opportunities, professionally or personally. Administrative & departmental chaos. Total good old boys club with little vision. Company touts itself as supportive of a positive work/life balance, but the only balance they were interested in was making sure your work-life intruded into every aspect of your personal life.

    Advice to Management

    No point in providing advice, since the company didn't pay attention to its own yearly employee surveys.

    I have been working at Harland Financial Solutions full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great PTO - up to 6 weeks per year, casual and relaxed work environment, fantastic people and flexible work hours.

    Cons

    If the company was to make a movie it would be called "Gone with the Wind". Over the past 10 years employee benefits have been slowly blown away. Today, besides average health care and company 401k matching, no real benefits remain. All of the following benefits have been offered to employees in the past: Monetary bonuses - gone with the wind; Stock options - gone with the wind; A stock purchase plan - gone with the wind, 401k bonuses - gone with the wind; Profit sharing - gone with the wind; Sabbaticals - gone with the wind. Meanwhile, large executive bonuses and other perks continue to be "wind proof" for those at the top. It’s funny how corporate cost reductions don't apply to those responsible for implementing them!

    Advice to Management

    When the company is profitable, share the wealth with the folks that are building, implementing, supporting and selling the products. This company wouldn't exist without these intelligent and highly skilled individuals that are responsible for the software that pays your salaries and bonuses.

    Pros

    PTO benefits are awesome, 4 weeks right when you start. Don't be too discouraged by some of negative comments you see here. I read these comments before I applied and I am happy with my decision. Some managers can be a little on the hard side and may demand allot, but one thing to remember is that a lot of these managers/supervisors have been here for over 10 years-even through company acquisitions.. yes Harland was recently acquired by D+H. Your pay increases are dependent upon your work performance, and this is every year. So you do a good job, you wILL get a raise. Training is offered, and is encouraged through multiple sources as well cross-training with different departments. If you want classroom training, or a do it yourself paced training for your field that is not offered request this from your manager, they will purchase it. In my case, I Am receiving training for some Microsoft certifications. Also, there are plenty of opportunities for growth and advancement in the company and they believe in promoting from within. So if you reached the high end of the pay band for your department or position, then you should advance you career and knowledge and apply for a position in another department. They will consider you

    Cons

    Health insurance benefits, not enough coverage and rising costs

    Advice to Management

    Acknowledge your workers with good praises and encouragement, especially the struggling ones
