Pros

Coming up on two years, and I very am pleased with the growth and development this company has helped me achieve over that period. There is a wide base of expert-level talent here that can be tapped, and very open communication between the Engineering and Business groups. Developers work closely with the business managers, and are involved in the design process early on. You get invested in your projects, so the work does not seem tedious. I've learned a great deal in a short period of time - not only on the technical side, but on the business end as well.

This is a fast paced environment, and there are times where you need to ramp up quickly to understand some pretty complex processes. However, there is rarely a need to work late hours or weekends. Things are typically confined to a 9-5 workday, so there's plenty of time to enjoy the San Diego sun.

Cons

The company has been expanding at a rapid pace, and is adapting its policies to fit its larger footprint. There can be a bit of an adjustment as these changes are implemented (stricter security policies, etc.).

    Stifling military style leadership does not bring the best out of employees.

    Pros

    Quite a few talented technical staff. Strong performing company. Savvy Founder/CEO. Good opportunities for women. Good natured technical staff.

    Cons

    Closed minded, regimented, all work and no play. Poor work/life balance. Abusive mental games played by some of the old school legacy leadership. Pay is not competitive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let everyone share in the growth of the company and contribution to problem solution. A bottoms up approach can empower employees and create an inclusive culture.

    Pros

    Free soda fountain. Free bagels on Fridays. Health benefits partially subsidized by employer.

    Cons

    As noted in previous reviews, XIFIN has a longstanding reputation for treating employees poorly. Management plays favorites to the point that it is noticed by almost everyone in the company. This is especially apparent In the Implementations and Technical Implementations groups. Recognition and compensation are slanted toward personality and like/dislike. Turnover is high and morale is very low. Motivation from management comes in the form of criticism and intimidation without complements or rewards (except for the favorite(s)). The company is top-heavy with many of those toward the top hired from the outside and not knowing the business or software. No matching 401(k). Engineers are playing “catch-up” in trying to provide promised functionality without introducing new bugs and while fixing the many bugs existing in released software.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop playing favorites and promoting from the outside when you have perfectly good talent in-house. Change your attitude of using fear and intimidation to motivate people, without corresponding reward. It has resulted in a culture of people backstabbing others (and of course not being truthful) in order to hang onto their job.
