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

    Pros

    140+ years of dedication to serving clients. It's real and not just a motto on a poster in the employee break room. Constantly improving products and launching new offerings for clients. Flexible work environment, great facilities, competitive compensation. Lots of tenure of employees (that says something). Overall great place.

    Cons

    Company could do more to tell its great story.

    Pros

    Work life balance really is possible here. Very diverse company. Strong business likely to do well during economic down turns. It is a good place to work.

    Cons

    Not the greatest pay. If you are very ambitious you may want to look somewhere else. If you take a job make sure you max your starting pay. Do not assume it will go up if you do well.

    Advice to Management

    You need to pay key talent before they leave.

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

    Pros

    We were encouraged to live the company values. John H. Harland Company was truly a company that valued its employees and allowed me the opportunity to provide for my family for many years. Also by investing in all of us, encouraging us to volunteer and support our communities the same way that they did and providing the best in support and training. The previous CEO Tim Tuff was the best I have ever seen.

    Cons

    When we merged with Clarke American everything changed and the previous management was removed. The company was never the same.

    Advice to Management

    Live and breathe the company values in and outside the office and always be supportive of the employees by providing nothing but the best.

    Pros

    Leadership is fantastic, and always communicative. Company is very customer-focused, and that makes for a very effective team, regardless of your role.

    Cons

    It's a big company, and it's easy to get a bit lost there. Like most large companies, there are plenty of silos, and lots of tradition. Lots of "because we've always done it this way".

    Advice to Management

    Keep looking at improving by listening to employees.
