    I worked at Misys full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Work with almost every financial services firm, thereby significantly expanding your network. Exposure to the leading software products in the financial services industry. Learn from some of the smartest people in the financial services software industry.

    Cons

    Shift in company strategy due to merger has affected career development; you may get stuck in your role for a while. Each product line works in a silo. Lack of cohesiveness amongst products. Processes and procedures are not consistent between product lines.

    Former Employee - Senior Consultant  in  New York, NY

    I worked at Misys full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    - Some excellent people with lots of experience
    - Elements of good management practices (but only in isolated areas) that were badly needed to transform Misys
    - Good exposure to banking and capital markets
    - Relatively flexible schedule and good work/life balance

    Cons

    - Signs of incompetency and people who only care about themselves
    - Recent private equity takeover transforms company into an enterprise that is ran by mechanical rules and guidelines
    - Sales is above all and thus sales teams are under extreme pressure
    - Long term company future is difficult to determine after takeover
    - Very limited career progress and opportunities
    - Flat salary growth, uncertain bonus due to swings in company performance

    I have been working at Misys full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Working with many nice people; they tend to pay better than average to make up for the cons

    Cons

    Zero career progress, zero training, zero attention to people. Constantly changing senior management insures that the real problems are never addressed and that calcified middle managers can survive to fool the new lot.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You won't solve a what is a people problem by introducing new processes (again). Root and branch.
