    Pros

    -Misys isn't the place where management harps on junior members of the team. There is great work life balance. -People are generally helpful. - Sr. Employees are really knowledgeable. However management doesn't seem to understand this with the frequent layoffs

    Cons

    -You won't get rich. Raises and bonuses are rare. -There isn't much room for growth. Whatever job you're hired to do is where you will stay for your career with Misys. A lot of bigger companies have automatic title changes after you do xyz. That's not Misys. -Layoffs... 2-3 times this year alone

    Advice to Management

    More training and growth for younger employees

    Pros

    Dynamic and engaging with a great degree of autonomy for most employees. From my experience, lots of growth & promotion opportunities. Misys is a company that is open to hearing and embracing new ideas!

    Cons

    If the thought of constant change makes you take pause, you wouldn't be a culture fit for Misys. The offices are typically open plan to encourage cross functional collaboration. If you require or work best in a private office or workspace this would be con.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to invest in training & development programs while allowing for additional International Assignments. It is absolutely well received and appreciated.

    Pros

    Really great people and pay as well as opportunities for growth into other areas/divisions

    Cons

    Misys is an international company and along with that are the struggles of not having access to key areas in your local office/time zone. Health Insurance is a consumer-directed health plan with higher individual/family deductibles that must be met before insurance company pays any claims.

    Pros

    This is a large multi-national company, so they are very stable, but they feel small. I was initially skeptical because of some of the reviews I read on this website, but I can tell you things are not as they would appear. Also, I've seen first hand how much this company wants to help its employees and build them up. They are working very hard to make this a top rated company to work for, so they actually listen. The people are great, there is a lot of growth opportunity within the company, and there is no limit to where you can go, as the company is present in nearly 50 countries.

    Cons

    The only con I have is that the culture in my particular office is a little non-existent. Granted, I work in one of the smaller offices and I know now that the offices in Europe are much more exciting due to the fact that they've been around longer (we've been in my current office for not even a year).

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work, but focus on creating a better company culture here in the U.S. like you have in Europe.

    Pros

    a lot of responsibility, autonomy, not much else positive to say. Old employees are high caliber, new not so much.

    Cons

    Salaries reduced year on year, Short sighted sales driven company, terrible benefits. Everything seems badly planned and half backed

    Advice to Management

    Focus on long term, value employees, hire better caliber of employees and improve benefits.

    Pros

    Very employee driven, will keep employees happy. Very understanding about PTO. If working here aim to be a business management because they barely come to work but get paid full time. Basically free money, They let majority of them work from home.

    Cons

    Do not short sell yourself or you will be stuck with that salary until you are able for promotion which will be about 8-10 years later. Some senior managers are mean and don't care about your feelings and upper management will do nothing about it because they know so much about the software.

    Advice to Management

    promote from within especially those who are going to school to earn advancement opportunities. Stop showing favortism to senior employees just because you're buddies
