    I have been working at Misys full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The people here are nice. Great collaborative atmosphere. Very flexible with regard to family life. For the people who have been here a long time, it's almost like family, and your coworkers taken and interest and pride in your life outside of work.

    Cons

    Senior management changes often, bringing new policies and updated philosophy. Compensation has stayed the same and perhaps even gotten worse.

    Technologically, we've fallen behind. Our business expertise and our depth of knowledge cannot be beat, but it's not appreciated by the senior maanagement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Compensation is the most important issue for employees. Everything else is less important.
