Pros

Fortune 500 company
Stable paycheck
Desire innovation

Cons

Tons of infighting
High level of political sniping
Management via fear and intimidation
More interested in profit---to the bone----than investing in new product and spurring innovation

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Read the book from Verne Harnish, "The Rockefeller Habits", and set yearly and quarterly strategic directions for the company and then make the investment.

    Pros

    It's a job. This is everything to be said about pros. Take it or stay if you don't have any other options.

    Cons

    Low salary increases and bad benefits
    Expect to work about 60 hours per week with a pay for 40 hours
    Management by fear and intimidation
    HR does not exist for regular employee only for managers.
    Retaliation for pointing to the wrong doings
    They said they prefer communication face to face but management keeps records of every email in case they line you up for being discharged
    Intimidation and creating a stressful hostile work place that will make you step out so no unemployment benefits. Even regular employees will gang up against you if they are friends with the manager
    Unfair policies - management is not responsible of their wrong doings
    Outsourcing work
    Stiff environment filled with too many policies that will stifle work and kill any creativity
    Old equipment

    I worked at Fiserv full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Fortune 500, Stable Pay chek, Low expectations to do anything. Relaxed life, Pay bills, take our dog for a walk during work hours....leav at 2pm Fridays...great work life balance..if something doesn't get done it is not because of you..

    Cons

    Highly Political,NOT functional. No support from Directors/ VP. There is a Mafia culture .Nothing is confidential. Eveybody on the floor knows when layoffs are coming and who is on it. This information is spread to the floor by the VPs. There is a mafia culture and group. If you get in their way you are screwed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean house at director and VP level. There is some good talent but Mafia doesn't allow it to function..
