    I worked at S1 full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    S1 provided good room for advancement and provided some good training opportunities. They had some interesting technologies, and there was always something interesting and exciting going on.

    Cons

    S1 worked its people pretty hard, as it was still kind of in that startup mindset, but it had entered that lumbering enterprise part of their lifecycle. This meant people worked long hours, after hours, on vacation, etc, but had few of the perks that a true startup might offer

    Advice to Management

    S1 got bought by another company, so I don't really know what their current management is like. i feel like there was good communication and i could always go talk to the VP over my group if I felt I needed to.

    I worked at S1 full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I worked at one of their development offices outside of GA. At time is was the best of both worlds; working in a small independent group that was backed by a large company. Good access to training and new technology. Worked with a number of smart, driven people.

    Cons

    Senior management decision making process was often unclear. Little unity or cohesiveness across geographic locations. Best practices dictated from central office with little or no collaboration.

    I worked at S1 full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great manager (in my case)
    Place was well kept and enjoyable to spend the day in. Nice/comfortable furnishings. Cafeteria well stocked and cared for.
    Excellent Salary; benefits not so great.
    Lots of opportunities to work with bright people who were eager to fix what was broken or come up with new and innovative projects.
    I was allowed to collaborate on a side project with others, saved the company lots of $$ and the whole thing went unnoticed.

    Cons

    Politics in management getting in the way of work.
    Decisions coming out of left field and obviously made more for "personal" advantage than company benefit.
    You may not necessarily get recognition for your work but will get ding'd for any small error or what is perceived as such.

    Advice to Management

    Fire yourself!
    Some of the "higher ups" are somewhat obtuse preferring yelling and insults to constructive talk. "Disingenuous" can take a whole new meaning. Enforce some sort of quality program starting with the prohibition of insults.
