    I have been working at Computershare full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Not sure where to start here so let me just dive in...

    My experience in 1.5 years of being with the company has been great. The management in my department is fantastic, I've never felt like I couldn't come to them with an issue that they didn't take seriously. I've received two promotions in this time and continue to feel like a valued employee. I've received plenty of opportunities to learn new things that don't always apply to what I do, but helps in promoting myself as a valued employee.

    This is the first company I've ever worked for that holds all kinds of different events from raising money for charities to opportunities to meet & greet other departments during and outside of work hours which I find pretty awesome.

    With this company moving from NJ, I feel like we had & continue to have the opportunity to come up with new processes that work for our department, giving us the kind of flexibility that allows for a desirable work environment & not just rules that are put into place because that's how management thinks it should work that don't actually make sense for someone who is actually doing the job day in and day out.

    In my department, there is some flexibility to work from home once a month and IF there's a reason you can't physically make it to work due to weather or if the company is having technical issues they may send you home to work & that is a nice little bonus in my opion (I've never had the opportunity to WFH before).

    Overall, I believe if you work hard, network, & take even the smallest opportunities to learn, there's a chance to grow & move into different roles. I see myself being here for a long time and I truly hope this company only gets better with time.

    Cons

    An annual raise that makes a difference would be much appreciated!

    Advice to Management

    Always take the time to listen to your employees and make an effort to meet in the middle whenever possible. If you keep employees happy and morale up, you'll keep turnover low, have people who are happy to come to work and put genuine effort into the work they do for you.

    This is a big stretch, but it would be a really big perk to have a little travel program (since they have people flying back and forth from Jersey to Louisville all the time for training anyways lol) dedicated to teach interested employees about your other locations & what they do. I have my eye on Johannesburg.

    Pros

    I love the working culture. It's a very laid back company which gives flexibility to its employees. Very diverse.

    Cons

    Salary is not at par with the market but it gets compensated with work flexibility and culture.

    Advice to Management

    We need to break the silos of some of the teams. Look at the compensation as well.

    I worked at Computershare full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible working environment, family feeling, workmates are awesome and willing to share knowledge. Business transparency with staff. Good for developers to grow as there are lots of good software development practice.

    Cons

    Below standarded equipments, monitors, laptop, chairs etc. Those things disappointing the employees more than the salary.

    Advice to Management

    Should be more generous to the staff rather than treat people as cost. It's a bit unfortunately to see that people learn a lot in Computershare that cannot stay longer to continue make contribution, a bit waste for the business.

    Pros

    Some great minds there who can teach you a lot if you can get time to ask them. Great perks such as gym and employee share plans. A company with money means a company with tools which is always great.

    Cons

    If you are a new junior and wanting to work on new technologies, this is not the place to come. Company is bit behind the times but slowly getting there.

    Advice to Management

    I was lucky to have the best manager and hope all my managers are like him. Management in general was great because everything was transparent and clear.
