    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 Management

    Keep up the good work!!

    Pros

    I enjoyed working for Harland Clarke. Using Lean manufacturing methods, teaches employees to think in terms of continual process improvement designed to eliminate waste, keeping employees in a life-longer-learner mindset. Good benefits.
    The organization is diversifying in to areas of business other than printing.
    I miss the great people I worked with at Harland Clarke for so many years (facility closure/lay-off)

    Cons

    The printing division serves a declining market, resulting in plant closures each year to ensure the organization meets financial goals. Work will be consolidated into the remaining production plants. Employees working in these printing facilities may face lay-offs in the coming years.

    Advice to Management

    The production facility closure was handled in a respectful manner. The employees were treated fairly, and with compassion. Please continue this compassionate method when closing production facilities in the coming years.

    Pros

    I enjoy working with all the thoughtful people. The management is positive and upbeat. There are lots of fun incentives.

    Cons

    The pay is not that great.

    Advice to Management

    More attention to personal growth of employees and promotions for those who rate them would have a positive impact on morale and performance.

    Pros

    Great Co workers, Benifits. They'll Work with your schedule but you must be a contractor to adjust your schedule before you get hired on.

    Cons

    Okay, where do I even start?! Takes more than 4 months to get converted from a contactor to an employee.... Your really working for BOA, not HC! Bank owns this part of the HC de department, most important they're so many 2 faced people in management. Soooo many people quit or get fired it's seriously a revolving door working there. Raises for specialist I is a total joke. ( 2 cents , 8 cents , maybe 50 cents ) depending on the supervisor. Speaking about supervisors especially mine, SHE was the most selfish supervisor I could even be supervised by. They don't look out for you at all! And kissed so much butt to the managers. I recommend you run while you have a chance. Also if your bilingual RUN.! you all are the busiest specialists is the center totally not worth extra 50 cents....

    Advice to Management

    No advice you all are have your heads so high up there. There's no telling you anything.
