      Not recommended for AS400 Developer

      7 Jun 2021 - Software Engineer in Bangalore
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      1. Good salary 2. Good variable 3. Good Medical facilities. 4. Internet charges can be claimed during pandemic.

      Cons

      1. No recognition in AS400 Project by the manager or the higher management. 2. AS400 project is not good for people who want to learn and grow. It does not follow SDLC cycle and thus a developer may never know why he/she is being asked to write a piece of code. 3. For AS400 project the work timing is 11 am to 8pm. 4. The AS400 Offshore manager is rude with all his team members, showing no gratitude towards the team. 5. No respect from the manager, he will make sure you feel as if you are the slave and he is the master. 6. You will have to work on internal tools for most of the times which will not help you in adding anything to your resume. 7. All salary related discussions has to be down with manager then HR, which is not comfortable.

      Stay away from India Markets banking

      22 Apr 2021 - Business Analyst Manager in Bangalore
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Company policies are excellent as they are setup at the global level. CEO and overseas management has great vision and execution.

      Cons

      India Markets (FIS Payment Solutions or FIS PSS) is one of the worst divisions to work in, especially the Banking vertical. The HR is led by a lady who has not worked a single day in her career. All your complaints will fall on deaf ears (including complaints of harassment or corruption). Management does not care about its employees, all good employees have left. This division hasn't had a single new customer in over 5 years now, and is running huge losses. They follow a hire-and-fire policy, hiring whenever a client has asked for a few resources, and firing them without reason a few months later. You will have ABSOLUTELY NO JOB SECURITY. There isn't any work life balance either. As these are banking customers, that too Indian clients, you will be forced to work on weekends and at odd hours daily to keep them happy. All the systems developed and managed by FIS are buggy, so most of your time will be spent on production support. You will not get any resources or training but will be expected to keep the systems running, else your job is on the line. You cannot even claim internal transfers to move to different departments as your manager will never approve it. Just stay away from this vertical. If you are joining erstwhile Sungard, you are in luck - it is a great place to be, although FIS has kind of ruined their culture too.

      Night of micromanagement and corporate greed

      11 Mar 2021 - Senior Software Engineer in Gurgaon, Haryana, Haryana
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Nothing except a good cafeteria and food coupons.

      Cons

      They expect each and everyone to work atleast 10 hours daily. Managers are there to make you finish 1 week work in 1 or 2 days by bullying you. Forget about leaves and there no such thing exist in FIS. They expect you to work from the death bed. No employee empathy. Managers flirting with girls is norm and girls without any merit or knowledge are leading the team in return to their due favor to managers. Male members of team are doing 2-3 people work as girls are being paid for fitting with managers. Obviously do not expect work life balance if you are working at gurgaon. Even if you resign they will tormant you by not paying F & F for several month. Join only if you are ready to be a bondage laborer without expecting work life balance or leaves. Extreme level of micromanagement, you find yourself reporting your daily work to several people and providing every minute work detail. Needless to say it will extend your workday by 2 hrs. They have every tool possible to oversee your every activity on system. Management is never satisfied the more you work the more you are inundated with extra work and responsibility that meant to be done by managers. Apart from your own work you will be doing manager,s work. P.S.: Most of good reviews here are paid reviews to improve rating.

      Honest Review: It's a company for your retirement

      4 Jun 2021 - Senior Software Engineer in Mohali, Punjab, Punjab

      Pros

      Work-life balances are there but do check the cons section.

      Cons

      Managers are there who doesn't even care about you, about your efforts. They have the mentality that anyone can do the coding job and instead of you giving the good hike they will hire from outside who will be offered twice package as you were on. Now at this particular point, you will feel insecure and you will go and talk to the manager but with no effort. And when you will start preparing for the interviews you will come to know that a lot has changed in the IT industry and you will curse yourself why you wasted this much time serving the organization where you have: 1. No learning. 2. No career growth. 3. No salary hike. 4. No on-site opportunity. 5. No recognition of your work. That's why only join this organization if you don't want to grow yourself in IT.
