    I have been working at FIS full-time

    Pros

    vacation is generous. opportunities to travel.

    Cons

    favoritism for promotions. unfair practices, expensive lunches, annual healthcare changes and increases. relationships within teams are cliquey. Limited opportunities for growth within team.

    Advice to Management

    value your employees by providing opportunities and promotions from within verses hiring outside the company new employees at a higher level than you that we have to train/mentor.

    Pros

    Company can be flexible with expectations. Takes care of its people. Good people to work with over all. Excellent benefits.

    Cons

    Pay is NOT commensurate with work load when promoting. Upper positions have high expectations with little reward or incentive. Policy can be very strict.

    I have been working at FIS full-time

    Pros

    Work is easy to learn.

    Cons

    No sense of employee appreciation from the higher ups whatsoever. Pay could be higher for the work that is done. Tech support is unreliable, if something breaks down you're out of luck for days or weeks. Everything is outdated compared to companies doing the same type of work.

    I worked at FIS full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I could so no cons when I worked for them. We were SunGard employees who FIS told us they bought us for our talent

    Cons

    So as soon as they bought SunGard over, the started the layoff. There were 3 rounds and probably more, yet most of the employees laid off were 50+ in years and has minimum of 25 years of service. Our hard and dedicated work got us to where we were at purchase and they started chopping jobs. They ruined many lives. They didn't even us other jobs in the company. They thing by getting cheaper, younger employee will cut their expenses, but they will never have the work ethic and dedication that we did. I call what they did she discrimination but to get your severance you had to sign a paper so that you wouldn't sue. So they knee what they were doing was wrong but we needed our severance.

    Advice to Management

    Don't judge an employee by age, judge them on work ethic. Some days it could happen to you, but you'll get a better buyout package then we did.

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

    Pros

    Love my direct managers, they don't micro manage in the slightest and genuinely great people. Flexible with hours and vacation. Good/great benefits.

    Cons

    Lacks in training new employees. Large company so sometimes processes move slow. Need more ways to get to know people in different departments.

    I have been working at FIS full-time

    Pros

    Excellent starting vacation, holiday and sick time off. Flexibility with scheduling time off within departments. Better than average health, dental, vision, life insurance, 401k and stock options. Additional benefits available. Coworkers and work environment are both great. FIS cares about the community and its employees - this is seen through several company sponsored programs and events. FIS encourages growth within the company and works to retain talented employees.

    Cons

    Computer issues occur frequently and can take several days/ weeks to resolve depending on the issue. For a technology company this is somewhat surprising.
