    I worked at Fidessa full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Excellent management at board level, avoided mass firings during 2008 downturn and produced consisten results in tough markets, firm invests significant percentage of profits back into development.

    Aggressive results oriented sales team constantly seeking new business globally.

    Opportunity to learn from experienced business & technical professionals in Financial Services across several business lines.

    Great place for graduate or somone with 2/3 years experience to learn both systems and business.

    Flat organisational structure facilitates collaborative environment.

    Flexible work hours, very good health benefits & vacation.

    Overall company has high number of 25-35's, young company, good after work social events.

    Very high staff retention at senior levels throughout the company resulting in very high core business and technical expertise amongst senior staff.

    Cons

    Be prepared to negotiate market rate on job offer or deal with pay below market rate for each year at company.

    Flat organisation can lead to slow movement and decision making, internal processes and procedures for improvement move more slowly than other organisations.

    At times the quality of the product is not matched by teams supporting it, disparity between senior and junior staff in knowledge of business and product can be great.

    More suited to people starting out in their careers than those with 10-15 years experience. Staff retention at management level is extremely high so opportunities for promotion will be limited.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find an optimal management structure between flat and hierarchical and ensure consistent training and knowledge transfer from senior to junior staff.

    Pros

    A good amount of leeway in terms of making your own time, as long as you put your hours in management is happy. You can learn a whole lot about the industry by working here

    Cons

    Lowball pay, especially for newer employees. Also structured in such a way that it's very hard to negotiate a raise come review time. Be prepared to hear "SMART goals" alot.
