    Pros

    Finally looks like there is management with a clue. Hopefully this group doesn't bail! Some of the new people are bringing some new ideas.

    Cons

    Still a bit understaffed. Still some bad apples still linger around from the old days and don't really contribute. Interesting to see what decisions are pending.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the people on the ground and spend some money to improve the organization.

    I have been working at Fundtech full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Entry level and salaried positions make pretty decent wages

    Cons

    Raises are rare (maybe every other year), management is incompetent, stubborn, and can't communicate, constant drama between all departments, no one that actually does their job right is rewarded or acknowledged, very few employees are actually qualified for their position, favoritism runs rampant, no positive changes can be made because of how understaffed every department is (expect to work OT on a weekly basis), spent millions on new remodel instead of giving anything back to the employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect your employees! Show appreciation, base promotions on merit, not on favorites, give a raise, even if small, every year, promote from within, hire more competent employees instead of spending money on pointless things.

    Pros

    Not much on promotions there's much too much favorite ism especially where there's a lack of knowledge and some folks just landed a position.

    Cons

    Some very lazy, lazy flamboyant staff. Takes the credit and talks a good game to make it seem theyre smarter than they are best part management falls for it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The ones that talks too much is full of themselves and lots of marshmallow.

    Pros

    The only pros I can think of is that you can work independently.

    Cons

    Poor management, no roles laid out, no vision. Company only cares about bottom line and so cheap about everything except when it comes to spending millions for an inept ERP system that does not work and is not customized for the work that is done. Backstabbing by Management and Office Politics is common place.

    Also, have a real year-end review that really means something and can determine raises and promotions but not the sham that it really is.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate, although I know that is to much to ask for, as all you care about is the bottom line.

    Pros

    Worked with some interesting technologies

    Cons

    Employee moral is extremly low, from BA's, developers, team leads, etc.. Everyone is grumpy. Everyone is fighting against eachother. Very Toxic! Also, 40 hr work weeks are not the norm. Expect to work 60+ hr a week.

    Pros

    There are long term employees who are passionate about being there. Very hard working teams

    Cons

    The management does not value hardwork and experience. Keeps changing the company strategy without backing it up with proper people and system infrastructure. Lots of new management has been brought in, but no effort to retain quality employees with long-standing experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employees are given less and less reasons to stay. You have provided too many "words" about how "great" the company can be but you have not provided the backing to support those words. Slamming in new infrastructure CRM and accounting systems without gathering requirements up front. Changing the company org without the people to flll the roles, offering no career growth, or salary increases for even those who are excellent. Set your strategy, make sure the infrastructure is there and then stand by your decisions. Be more open and honest with employees at all levels and in all offices.

    Pros

    Salary is competitive. But if you convert to hourly, then not so much. Many hard working employees.

    Cons

    Unrealistic deadlines. After merger the work staff is so low that everyone is expected to work days, nights, and weekends. In the IT department, everyone is expected to work 60+ hours per week. If you have to work all night, you are expected to continue through the business day.

    After the merger the staffing was cut way back and only the best were retained. Now during performance reviews, they want to rate those that are still here on a bell curve.

    Stay away unless your idea of a quality life style is giving everything you have to the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Staff up to the point that everyone can work a normal work week.
