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

    Pros

    Excellent Culture. I would compare it on par with Google or other Tier 1 companies. Compensation is better than what the market pays. Flexible work timings & Dress Code and Family Medical Insurance are definitely plus points from an employee's angle. Harland Clarke is a 145 year old company headquartered in San Antonio Texas USA. Its a huge company and finacially the are very strong. Location of the company is defnitely advantageous. Its in Guindy Industrial Estate ( SKCL 2 Building 3rd Floor). Management is very friendly and cooperative. Almost 70% of the employees get an opportuinity to visit USA for business meetings and trainings.Ample learning opportunities.

    Cons

    Harland Clarke Global Development Center was started in Chennai two years back and the company is still in growing phase.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work!!

    I worked at Harland Clarke part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The best reasons to work here are the pay and the benefits, I also made quite a few lifelong friends. When I worked there raises were very much affected by your performance and that can be a good or bad thing.

    Cons

    I felt like they expected me to be a robot. There was very little room for human error. Also they were very very strict on adherence to your schedule, even if you missed your break because you were stuck on a phone call for them it was likely that your adherence score for the day would go way down increasing your chances of getting written up,

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

    Pros

    I enjoyed my time at Harland Clarke. There was a lot of involvement with the United Way program and all the work that the employees and upper management did for the cause benefited a lot of people in need. There were also a lot of work incentive games that made the place fun to work at.

    Cons

    The only issue I had while working there was that there were times that the upper management seemed to be more concerned with making the client happy than actually listening to what the agents on the phones encountered. We were even told that the client wanted feedback on the daily encounters to see what we would suggest as possible improvements but it seemed to fall on dead ears.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take the time and listen to what the front line people were seeing so that it can potentially assist with creating a better relationship with the client.
