I have been working at XIFIN full-time for more than a year

Pros

The company has decent vacation and other benefits. The QA and software teams are very easy to work with. The business development group seems to have their stuff together because they seem to make money regardless of their underlying technology.

Cons

This is not a company that is nimble, nor cutting edge, which may be appropriate for the medical market it works in. There seem to be three managers with opinions on anything that needs to be done and no one is willing to stand up for the right way to do something. I wouldn't work here if you enjoy creating great technology.

    I have been working at XIFIN full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Casual dress, free soda fountain, bagels on Fridays. Great friendly people. Positive outlook for future growth. Accrue third week vacation beginning day one of fourth year. Normal holidays plus two floating for a total of 7. Company does not operate on the PTO model.

    Cons

    Hiring has not kept up with growth. Some outside hires into upper Mgmt caused more harm than help. Those capable rarely promoted, but good enough to train those from outside hired above them. Does not make sense. Some Depts are the "golden child" and all decisions made to help them, whether or not to the detriment of others.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Talk to your employees. Listen to them. Understand the everyday obstacles to success. Get rid of upper mgmt from the outside if they haven't learned the system or made positive change in the first year.

    Pros

    Healthcare benefits are good. Stock options, if available, can be generous, depending on when they vest.

    Cons

    XIFIN has a longstanding reputation for treating employees poorly. The implementations group and technical implementations group are in complete chaos at the time of this writing. Nearly every implementation coordinator and technical implementation specialist has less than a year of experience. Turnover is quite high and morale is quite low. Extensive overtime is expected, but not rewarded, nor even acknowledged. Staff are regularly criticized at the drop of a hat by management and coworkers alike - both privately and in front of customers. However, alliances can be made if loyalty is proven to a select few of the most tenured staff. choose carefully.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage staff to take risks. Allow staff to learn from mistakes. Praise in public and punish in private. Always give staff the benefit of the doubt. Manager should stop throwing subordinates under the bus in front of customers, just so that you can appear correct.
