    Pros

    This company offers great benefits

    Cons

    Management has no clue as to what is happening with the work of their employees. They mainly handle HR side, but know nothing about the work

    In general it was a pretty nice place to work, with relatively good benefits.

    Pros

    They have Profit Sharing and a Money Market account that is donated to at the beginning of the year, as a percentage of your annual salary, if the profits were good for the previous year. Annual raises were OK, as long as your performance was good for the previous year.

    Cons

    The company has too much bureaucracy in the management. Most of the management is very conservative, with a real lack of any sense of humor, partially due to the mindset in Columbus, GA. So, if you are a more liberally minded person, it will not be the most comfortable place to work. You have to be careful not to let others know you are not conservative, as there can be negative impacts on your career, and possible termination. People tend to be rather cliquish, and exclude those who do not fit into the in crowd (especially if you are in the LGBT community). So, due to this, the environment can be very stifling, and this can lead to less productivity.

    Pros

    Fairly stable company. Pay and benefits are satisfactory at best. Commuting to and from work is good in the Columbus area unless a person lives to the northwest. Can be a very long term employee if you keep your aptitude level at no more or less than an average level and don't rock the boat.

    Cons

    Have gone off the deep end with efficiency. That means the best people are badly overworked and leave the company. Turnover is above 20% per year. Many leave due to health problems due to the toxic environment (micromanagement, back-stabbing, and poor decision making of middle management). Egos out of control at the director level and above. Cronyism is a huge problem. Management is old school in the wrong ways. Too much emphasis on seniority and not enough on competence. North Data Center and East Data Center employees don't get the benefits that the downtown employees get.

    Great place to work if you get the right boss; like anywhere else.

    Pros

    Flexible hours, good benefits, good coworkers. If you work hard, they'll let you just do your thing. Lots of different technologies to learn about.

    Cons

    There are lots of changes going on, so there's always a new process or procedure to learn about. Always a new security standard to have to adapt to, but that makes the multitaskers very hot commodities.

    Pros

    Good upper management and plenty of opportunity to advance. I was able to more than double my salary in 5 years.

    Cons

    Pay was a bit on the low side. More office politics than I would like. Lower management in my department was not very good and we went through three managers in 5 years.

    Pros

    If you are a millennial and want and need the constant barrage of 'rah, rah, rah TSYS is great' and the worst idea ever, Team Appreciation Week

    Cons

    401k match at 4% is ridiculously low compared to the IT industry as a whole. TSYS is an 'old boys club' where it is not what you know, but WHO you know. The healthcare benefits are adequate to keep from paying the ACA penalty, but just barely. The extremely high cost of the healthcare plans and the stupid high deductibles are disadvantages.

    Overall great place with average pay

    Pros

    This place is an awesome training ground if you are in need of experience. Could be a great place to shine if you already have it.

    Cons

    It's easy to get into the routine of doing one thing all the time and allowing yourself to grow stagnant in your skillsets.

    Overall, it's an OK place to work

    Pros

    Pretty good benefits, good/flexible work arrangements (i.e. - working from home, flex hours, etc). They're pretty understanding when life happens, and you need to go take care of something away from work. This may not be the case everywhere, but in my area it is.

    Cons

    Salaries aren't that competitive. Advancement doesn't seem to happen a lot. You might move from a level 1 to a level 2, or a level 2 to a senior w/in 2-4 years, but getting to a lead or management level is extremely difficult. At least it is in the IT area (which is the majority of the company).
