Great place to work out of college if you are into finance AND tech; job is 20% finance, 80% tech/software

Business Analyst (Current Employee)
San Francisco, CA

I have been working at Calypso Technology full-time

Pros- Competitive entry-level salary and great health benefits
- Great place to learn about financial technology, one of the hottest topics in today's financial world
- Company is a leader in financial tech industry so there are opportunities to be involved with the cutting edge areas
- Very profitable company -- the largest banks worldwide throw money at Calypso to get the latest software to keep up with recent additions and changes in financial legislation (Basel, Dodd-Frank etc)
- In the heart of downtown SF (public transportation friendly)
- Work is very demanding, but if you can manage your time wisely, work/life balance is good
- A learning culture-- no one thinks they know everything, there is always something new to learn or explore with Calypso
- Quick equipment setup for new employees (laptop, monitor, keyboard, etc)

Cons- Higher ups can be harsh and impatient when trying to explain/teach to new employees
- Amounts of work given to different employees of the same level can vary considerably
- Very small kitchen and only one bathroom per gender per floor
- Can be frustrating for finance/business majors with little software background to understand Calypso, but this is not really a con, more of a warning to those applicable

Advice to Senior Management- Performance expectations can be murky, it is hard to stand out from others (or even understand if one has met expectations) without clearly defined expectations from senior mgt
- Higher ups need to remember that frustration and impatience with new employees not understanding the system will not instill knowledge in them, rather, it slows the learning process

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
