I worked at Jack Henry & Associates full-time (More than 3 years)
comfortable atmosphere, good mix of work and play, family/work very flexible, and the projects were fun. Everyone was nice and the company stuck to its grassroots humility. The employee was important.
Executive and upper management changed - and then slowly everything started changing- you could feel it. Money replaced the employes as far as importance and people started quitting, or being let-go as the new guys wanted to cut costs instead of building the employee. Higher expectations, micro-management, and Directors tried to instill fear as a motivator. Those things seemed to take place during the last 6 months that I worked there.
Advice to Management
If you're a manager than be a manager, not a passive authority figure or a manager that talks a big game but doesn't have the courage to stand up to the bully and in retrospect- not enough courage to confront an employee negatively if there is truly a reason. Be your own thinker don't do something you don't agree with or feel is right just because he or she said so. You will lose respect from your employees.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Jack Henry & Associates (Olathe, KS) in July 2015.
The recruiter email first and ask to set up a phone interview based on the date and time you choose so you won't be surprised at all.
The phone interview is easy, just some general questions. The recruiters tells you pretty everything you need to know and don't need to know about the company, the job, benefits, environments, and the team for the position.
Followed by the phone interview is three algorithms coding exercises in C# that the recruiter emails. Not very hard exercise but performance and memory are probably considered. A simple guessing game that you have to pass with logN guesses, a lowest cost problem, and a word count problem.
I underestimated the problems and use exception handling for control flow (adding duplicate to dictionary exception). The program took 10 seconds to run on my PC as the runtime should only be O(N), but the recruiter said it took more than 15 minutes to run on her test machine, and cost me my interview.
After the assessment, there should be a 1:1 general interview.
The recruiter is really nice, the works seems fun and interesting, and I learned my lesson.
