I have been working at ACI Worldwide full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

ACI is certainly poised to make substantial financial gains as long as they can execute effectively.

Currently they are a major player in the payments industry

They allow you to work from home when you are not required to be in the office for a meeting etc.

Cons

The huge amount of process and systems limitations placed upon engineers by the IT staff and corporate security group makes it very difficult to be productive in developing software. In fact the moral among engineers is dropping due to the restrictions

There is limited room to allow innovation inside ACI outside of the chosen few who work on their Reference Architecture

There is little consideration for work/life balance. Most in Sr Management consider 60 hours the new 40 hour work week.

ACI seems to be more focused on average bill rate than the productivity of well trained engineering staff.

Advice to Management

Relax process and controls which will allow engineering to be productive.

Find a way to allow reasonable work/life balance. Meetings at 11pm at night to 5-6am plus a regular work day in your geo makes it difficult to have any balance.

Be more open to new technology and listen to the engineers who are actually having to use your internal tools.

    I have been working at ACI Worldwide full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Pay is good and so are the benefits

    Cons

    Company is always changing and is very focused on making quarterly numbers.

    Advice to Management

    Acquiring companies takes time and people to integrate ...don't skimp on resources to do the work. Create a culture of trust. You have good employees, you don't always have to hire senior leadership from outside. Recognize that you have competitors in the marketplace. Address the concerns related to recent acquisitions.
