    I have been working at Misys full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Misys is a global company that offers flexibility to work from home. You have the opportunity to work on different projects to expand your knowledge and learn new things. It has a fast paced, employee friendly working environment. You have autonomy to make your own decisions. At Misys you work with smart people who have a common goal to market share and brand recognition in the US.

    Cons

    If you need to be micro managed, or require structure and processes to the Nth degree, you will not be happy in Misys's collaborative, easy going culture.

    Advice to Management

    Keep investing in your employees and the culture.

    I have been working at Misys full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Colleagues are generally very nice, and there are some really smart people. The London office is a great environment. The NY office where I work, not so much. Great training program for new hires.

    Cons

    Upper management changes constantly, so most of them are more focused on keeping their jobs than improving the company. The NY office can be a toxic environment at times, due to frequent layoffs and a short-sighted, sales-driven culture. It's the only place I've worked where the management is less capable than their reports. It just feels very weird at times, like the loonies are running the asylum.

    Advice to Management

    You don't need so many salespeople. Invest in your products instead of spending so much money on a revolving door sales team.

    I have been working at Misys full-time (More than a year)

    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.

    I worked at Misys full-time

    Pros

    It's a small/cozy environment where people are very friendly and helpful. You get hired regardless of your skill set because the management is very generous towards the unemployed/matured community Vacation package is decent, health insurance is poor.

    Cons

    I worked here as a software developer for few years. There is no opportunity to improve or enhance your career at this place. They have a legacy application which needs to be supported. They hire anyone who can serve that purpose regardless of their skill set. Hence they made very poor hiring decisions in the past and literally hired future employees with no skills at all and who needs constant supervision to do their job IF NOT DO IT FOR THEM. Never seen any other place where the employees need to be spoon- fed since they lack the required skills to perform their work. But the management is perfectly OK with this behavior. They just need the job done and doesn't care if the employees are competent to fulfill their roles or not, there by putting pressure on co-workers to help out. Last year Misys acquired them, they are trying to establish new standards/policies to improvise the workplace but the older/senior employees are HESITANT to change. People who been working here for long, tends to stay while the others leave in couple years once they figure out the mess. You won't learn much that you could take to the next place technology wise other than the legacy system workflow. Technology is a JOKE at this place and management is happy with what they have if any.

    Advice to Management

    Please stop hiring INCOMPETENT people. And ARGO (the company across the street) is not COSTCO OR SAMS CLUB so you can HIRE IN BULK. Recruit skilled young talents and not bunch of matured heads with hardly any technical, intellectual or communication skills.
