Vice President (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILApril 19, 2017
Enjoyed working with a lot of good people. The firm largely grew through acquisition, so that made establishing a consistent corporate culture a bit tricky.

Had a ok time there
QA Manager (Former Employee) –  Chico, CAMarch 23, 2017
if you like to be told what to do 10-15 times a day and have to get water from the restroom to drink then this place is for you. turnover is about 1-2 years. Everyone there is either wanting to leave or change the way the company operates. went through 4 CEO's in a 8 year period and still fail to provide 70% customer satisfaction.
Pros
most people are kind
Cons
the worst people tend to harass you enough to make you forget about the nice people

Good company
Senior Software Engineer (Current Employee) –  Lake Mary, FLMarch 8, 2017
Overall, the company is a good place to work. Individual managers might affect day-to-day morale, but remote work is allowed/encouraged, so definitely a plus there.
Pros
Free breakfast Thursday, lots of activities and luncheons
Cons

Since FIS acquired SunGard they are laying off many people over 50 and calling it a work force reduction, but then you see the same if not similar job posted on their company website.

Great manager and co-worker also people very friendly
Sr. Programmer Analyst (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILDecember 9, 2016
Get in between 7:30 and 8:00 in the morning and start working on clients defined upgrades to the GMI software package. Work closely with the different teams to get their updates worked out on their specs. Usually leaving between 4:30 and 5:00.

My manager was a standup person, giving help and advice when needed.

My co-worker was very knowledgeable on the GMI software package and was a great resource to tap into when needed.
Pros
Helping clients get their modifications coded and installed
