    Pros

    They treat their stronger employees better than the others. There is some room for advancement and lateral moves. Lots of lip service on how they're a great place to work may make junior members feel good to be there.

    Cons

    I used to love working at Fidessa but, over time, the glaring flaws in my former employer became apparent. They do not fire weak employees and often let their customers walk all over them. In turn, the competent employees are left cleaning up the mess. All for pay that is significantly less than market rate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire bad employees. Fire your sales people who over promise with no grounds - it only stresses your good employees and shatters the customer's confidence. Say "no" to your customers every once in a while.

    Pros

    laid back, understanding people who take the time to teach their current employees. The really do employees make the company.

    Cons

    pay, time off, advancement, the list goes on. The bad business policy of constantly cutting corners in terms of employee benefits, whether medical, dental, even salary, while hiring and posting gains in all areas is absurd.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep your employees. reward them for the good work they do, instead of letting them walk for higher paying jobs. Stop hiring.
