    I have been working at TSYS|Total System Services full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    TSYS basically defines job security: so long as you're not a jerk and you more or less do your job, you will eventually reach a place that seems a lot like tenure, in which you cannot get fired. They also value work life balance quite a bit, so having kids and working at TSYS works out well.

    Cons

    On the downside, that tenure thing has filled the company with a lot of dead weight: people who don't work that hard, don't push or challenge, and actively prevent any kind of change. Compensation is pretty terrible.

    Advice to Management

    Take a good hard look at the people at the bottom of the chain. Stop promoting hard workers into management and leaving the roles that actually do the work filled with people who are just waiting on retirement.

    I worked at TSYS|Total System Services full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Benefits, cafe, work/life balance. This company really has no PROS, It was a bad experience all around.

    Cons

    Low salaries, people in jobs they are not qualified to do. Management does not listen.

    Advice to Management

    Don't put people in jobs they are not qualified to do. If you hire an expert, listen to what they have to say. To much emphasis on "teams"--concentrate on quality first.
