    Pros

    They've made many changes over the last year changing compensation packages and allowing promotions more frequently. As long as you are willing to learn they are willing to let you.

    Cons

    Pay scales still seem to be a little bit lower than the current market should suggest. Employees seem to get rewarded for time with the company instead of based off performance.

    I have been working at TSYS full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Work load is not cumbersome, but there are a lot of unnecessary tasks that are required by upper management Benefits are OK.. Team members are very friendly depending on the team.

    Cons

    No growth potential to climb ladders. If you are joining the company for this wait in line as there is a political hierarchy. Need to be in good term with management to do this regardless of qualifications.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    TSYS in Alpharetta requires more culture and employee appreciation. Currently this is not happening. The concerns and needs of the employees are not met and thus people are looking for better opportunities and leaving when they find them.

    Pros

    Work was challenging, good opportunities to shine, opportunities to mentor, liked working with clients and having a direct impact on the business

    Cons

    Pay is low so quality of employees was sometimes questionable, too much focus on new business rather than fixing all the problems, low employee morale

    Pay people more and get better quality employees and things would probably improve

    I worked at TSYS full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    work life balance is something the company actually pays attention to. good medical benefits, 401K etc. stable company with growth potential. offices are nice and in good locations.

    Cons

    salary is not as competitive as it could be which may be why there is higher turnover in some areas. Many companies have work from home programs but nothing official at tsys when i was there. bonuses are also on the low side when you compare to other companies. salary is the biggest crutch. if this was fixed at least for top performers and to attract new talent, it would be a big improvement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    overall tsys is a good company to work for and most employees are satisfied and treated well. consider a market study to look at how salaries compare. I moved to a new company with the same responisibilities for 20% more salary and a confirmed bonus plan. higher salaries also mean better talent will be attracted and stay. An objective based bonus program would make the company more competitve as would a work from home policy
