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

Pros

*Steady work environment.
*Great job for someone fresh out of school.

Cons

*You are part of a team, but team members all reside in other offices.
*Coming from other IT roles you don't learn any new technologies.
*No new technologies can be a huge drawback for future employment opportunities.
*Procedures change frequently...then they change again.
Procedure process can be too involved to get something done for the people you are providing support for and often times find yourself waiting...which in turn makes you focus on getting other things done but your productivity really declines when you find yourself going back and forth.

    I worked at FIS full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    -Good and friendly Colleagues
    -Laid Back Environment (used to be until the merger)

    Cons

    -Salary is below market average
    -Promotion is slow, and you have to almost beg for it. Management will not just realize the good works you did and promote you...you have to ask and fight for it. My first promotion took me almost 3 years despite of having scored excellent in annual reviews.
    -Annual raise is 3% for the whole department which is divided among the department employees and some get 1.5%, some 2% and some favorite ones get 4%...but average was just about 2%.
    -No annual bonuses
    -Management are all old school type and goes by the book
    -When it was metavante, everyone felt like its their own company and everyone as a family....but since the merger, lot of good people were let go and lot of remaining also have left or are looking for new jobs.
    -Health benefit is just average

    Advice to Management

    Management seriously look into how to save remaining employees from quitting...People are unhappy in each and every department...There is no incentive to work here anymore.
