    I have been working at Jack Henry & Associates full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Excellent work life balance. JHA understands that you have a life outside a career. Good top-down communication. Compensation is complete, including insurance, paid time off you can use without challenge, and 401k with match.

    Cons

    Different groups inside JHA don't always communicate well. Frequent mandatory online training with minimal relevance.

    Pros

    Benefits, work-life balance.

    Cons

    Although work-life balance is generally good, for some departments what JHA tells employees and what actually is expected are not inline. Also, if you're not located in the Monett-Springfield, MO area, career advancement opportunities can be limited.

    I have been working at Jack Henry & Associates full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The benefits are definitely better than most. They match 401K 100% up to 6% of salary which is higher than most companies. Insurance, vision and dental is reasonable priced. Flex Pay and they offer other options like Health Savings Account. They have early retirement option at age 55. They have a great family work life balance. They offer work at home to most employees a couple of days a week so a lot of employees work from home.

    Cons

    They don't pay as well for technical jobs as most technical companies and I find it common that women generally get paid less than men for the same job. Women are promoted in twice the amount of time it takes for a man to get promoted.
