Best Places spotlight: Jack Henry offers a high-energy workplace

The IT work at Jack Henry & Associates keeps Sean Burch, a systems and network administrator, on his toes. "A typical day for me involves interaction with multiple teams to plan and implement solutions that will keep Jack Henry's customers running at full steam," he says.

The Monett, Mo.-based IT services provider is a high-energy workplace, he says, and that energy is complemented by a positive attitude in the IT department. "From structured meetings to impromptu collaborations, I constantly have the chance to work with outstanding individuals that are always thinking about how we can improve our services, infrastructure and products," he adds.

Scott Whisman, who as general manager of corporate services is the senior IT person, says his 300-member IT department follows the company's guiding principle: "Do the right thing, do whatever it takes, and have fun."

"JHA is genuinely concerned for our people, and we are committed to making them successful," he says. "We expect a lot from our folks, and the workloads are heavy. However, when you're working for a company that fully supports your efforts and highly values your contributions, it makes the job very enjoyable."
