    Poor Management

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat technology, if partnered with the right partners and implemented innnovatively, can revolutionize the way people pay and use offers.

    ConsVery bad management and very political atmosphere. Employees are promoted by being favorable to the bosses. The organization is run as being run by a Project Manager rather than being run by an Innovator, Strategist.

    Very bad/No communication by the Senior Management to the down. Management can't manage or advance the career of the employees.

    Working at this company affects your personal life to the great extent.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPlease clean up the mid level management extensively.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Isis Management

    Project Manager (Current Employee)
    Dallas, TX

    ProsGood product but we might have missed the window of success and product use

    ConsPoor management from the CEO down. Isis ran off all the good leaders who have all gone on to be successful at other companies.

    Advice to Senior ManagementExecutives need to leave and I bet the board is not far from seeing this.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Company has no strategic vision

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat pay and benefits
    Great workforce

    ConsManagement has no clue of what they are doing. The cookie cutter GE management doesn't have what it takes to help an innovation company succeed.
    Second level management hiring people with no work to be done, just to build their empire.
    No cost control.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIf you don't watch your expenses and productivity, you will need to start layoffs before the end of the year.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    This may be the future

    Software (Current Employee)
    Dallas, TX

    ProsNice product. If more banks and stores get used to this, we could be seeing one of the biggest culture change in payment

    ConsManagement can be improved and has the usual issues of a start up

    Poop Senior Management

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsIsis has a great product that could potentially revolutionize the mobile payments industry. They has great partners.

    ConsSenior Leadership is not focused on the right areas and employees are treated as expendable. There is no loyalty or commitment from the top down but expected from the bottom up. It's not a sustainable arrangement.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIf you want Isis to succeed, clean house from the top and not at the bottom.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Senior leadership is lost

    (Current Employee)

    ProsAmazing tech trying to solve real problems. If done well Isis can be an industry leader and garner google name recognition

    Huge potential subject to what the rest of the industry does and how quickly Isis can pivot.

    ConsSenior leadership has no clue how to run a start up plain and simple as they are a bunch of GE lifers. Employees are either set on a power struggle or running around chasing their own tails to show the bosses how busy they are. Unless Isis cleans house there will always be a problem on getting product shipped.

    Problems compounded by culture of rewarding face time and white noise vs actually doing the work and shipping product. If you like office politics this is the company for you.

    Advice to Senior ManagementQuit

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
