    I have been working at McFadyen Solutions full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    McFadyen works very hard to provide an awesome work environment for its people. They also strive to be a reliable employer. They put their employees first. When other employers lay off in droves, McFadyen hangs on, relying on cash they have consistently put away for the inevitable economic recession.

    The culture is very easygoing. The people and management are excellent. It's technically challenging but company hires only the smartest in the industry who loves these challenges so the job satisfaction rate is very high. Some companies say they encourage work-life balance, but McFadyen Solutions lives it. Of course there are long working hours during the crunch time but that's everywhere isn't it?

    Mcfadyen Solutions has built an incredibly special culture that is down to earth, collegial, supportive, intellectually stimulating, and just out right fun. I absolutely love coming to work here and truly miss the office and our people when I'm away. That's a rarity and something I cherish each day

    Cons

    Yes, you'll have to average more than 50 hours a week. It varies from Project to Project, across managers and stage the projects are in. But most managers will try to be as accommodating as possible for personal commitments, vacation days, making sure you have a life outside of work and that you don't burn out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Overall extremely happy, senior leadership is truly phenomenal at this company. The way management encourages employees for training and certifications with predetermined bonuses and raises, is commendable. However, management should increase the bench strength and reduce the hiring cycle.

    Pros

    If you want to learn ATG (thats the technology they focus on).
    If you want to fight fires and learn a lot in the process.

    Cons

    The company never grows. Its been stuck at the same size for the last 10 years. Other companies in the same category have gone through booms, gained massive contracts, increased head count, etc. However McFadyen has been stuck at the same size for the last 10 years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to have a longer term vision, and if its there then its a really bad one. The company is completely stagnant. Focus on quality and project management rather than being a code shop. I'm sure the management already knows this (its been 10 years of the same old same old after all) however they lack the capabilities to grow.

    Pros

    Work environment. Good pay, so that other companies won't hire you any more and you need to be with this company :)

    Cons

    Influential people are leaving or let go. As usual certain people are given improve yourself with in two months or leave. No hike. Treating employees while on notice are horrible. They don't honor your hard earned vacation. They won't allow you to take leaves during the notice even if you are sick; if you take days off your notice period gets extended. I believe a company should be rated based how they treat employees while they are leaving the firm.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Single man sitting other part of the world decides everything, who doesn't know the pulse and feeling.

    Pros

    McFadyen always focus on employee well-being , which is evident in its flexible work timings, dress code and the recreational facilities at the office. It also provides the opportunity to work in a fast-paced environment and challenging work that will make you a world-class professional

    Cons

    McFadyen needs to improve its visibility among prospective employees as the great work atmosphere is little known to the outside world
