Senior Team Lead (Current Employee) – Salt Lake City – July 4, 2013
Currently understaffed the Protegent group within capital markets is over worked and under paid. It is a great place to work and plenty of work, it is just very difficult to find a good work/life balance.
Lead Sr. Consultant (Former Employee) – Remote with some travel to Cincinnati OH – November 29, 2016
Lots of room for advancement, enjoyed working there, good benefits, low salary. Moved up quickly advanced to higher paying jobs, management was quick to recognize my automation skills and allowed me to automate numerous processes in various Trust and Investment related departments.

Short term contract - not really there long enough learned some more abut vmware management was fairly laid back not a lot of culture as many jobs were being outsourced at the time hardest part of job - the space was quite empty and got emptier

Team Leader Operations Department (Former Employee) – Salem, NH – November 7, 2016
I provided Operational Support for our customers in the Securities Finance Industry. I coordinated and set up procedures to receive and transmit files and reports for our clients using various methods of transmission and encryption. Assisted customers queries via phone and email in a timely accurate manner. Utilized schedulers to run programs at specific dates and times. Providing excellent customer service in a timely manner was always my priority. We grew from 30 clients to over 300 in the time I spent with this company. Fidelity bought the company in late 2015 and many senior employees were let go due to a reduction-in-force to cut payroll expenses. This had always been a great company to work for and truly hated losing this job.
Medical, Dental, 401K, good people, all departments worked as a team
Data Entry (Current Employee) – Birmingham, AL – June 14, 2016
Unless you are kissing up to managements you can't do anything within the company. Not to mention the team leads they have over you can't even do their own jobs. They don't even know procedures and they expect you to learn forms they don't even know. Management is never around when you need them. Co-workers are always up walking around being loud. The team leads show favorites. If they like you, they let you get away with not doing work. Team leads will have you do their work training others. There is more drama compared to high school. HR does not care about any complaints. You can not move up within this company. You do not get raises. The procedures they expect you to follow by don't even make sense.You are made to fail and get errors. When you start within the company you have to sit for 6 months not doing anything. People fall asleep everyday. The job is very boring and you rarely learn new things. The company does nothing for you. They use to help with lunches or had more exciting things to do...nothing now!
Paid Vacation, being lazy, no management around, lunches optional
Poor management, poor team leads, HR will not help you, if you have a disability you are in trouble
Great people, young culture. Do what they can to help you grow as much as possible. Open door policy with management, I feel very comfortable if I need to speak with someone in upper management. The work is a grind and very hard, but if you are a hard worker and detailed oriented you should be fine.
Back Office Support (Former Employee) – Inverness, AL – May 11, 2016
Working Here started off good. But then came lies from management about promotion. the people they put in charge don't do anything all day but play on there cell phone,eat all day an complain about stupid stuff such as staplers in work, Sorry team leads they want the other workers to do there work. Pay suck!!!! keep up mess!! so call friends talk about each other behind there back. Management have there picks and chooses. bring in people off the street rather then hire in house they hire friends of friends sad how management work I would not even call that management because it's unfair and they don't care about the people that work there butt off. Fire people cause one of the managers/leads don't like them. not all departments some departments are awful.
Manager (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – December 10, 2015
Morale is very low. Management doesn't care or listen to any work issues. No set work instructions. You're always trying to hit a moving target. Management is horrible and actually rude to employees. I actually was witness to a screaming match between 2 managers that was heard all the way from the conference room to the staff floor. HR is useless if you have an issue. Backs management and does nothing to help. No chance for advancement. Most of the office personnel is from India.It's just a miserable place to work. Company reputation is so bad they've changed the name to FIS. Layoffs are almost quarterly.
Pay is ok, benefits are ok.
Miserable environment, management is horrible and uncooperative. Politics are rampant.
Data Entry Operator/Back-Office Support (Former Employee) – Hoover, AL – November 22, 2016
This is not a job for students. I started working here because it paid well, but the hours were only full-time, and the level of security didn't allow me much study time. Management was not that great, either.
Great manager and co-worker also people very friendly
Sr. Programmer Analyst (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – December 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.
Helping clients get their modifications coded and installed
QA Manager (Former Employee) – Chico, CA – March 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.
most people are kind
the worst people tend to harass you enough to make you forget about the nice people

Senior Functional Consultant (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – September 25, 2016
It is a good place to work and in many ways, I wish I had stayed with the University. However, I was looking to expand my knowledge and thought that a consulting job would be interesting. Unfortunately, the travel which was reported as 25% turned out to be 50%.
