    Pros

    Knowledgeable colleagues. Develop network with top banking clients. Decent pay.

    Cons

    Too segmented. Lack of growth opps. KPIs create unproductive internal competition, which negatively affects the culture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trust your managers, give them the resources they need to succeed, and let them lead.

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

    Pros

    Flexibility in work schedules and work life balance

    Cons

    Everything else...Lack of investment in employees and job security after the M&A. You will not be able to have a career path within the organization. No raise in salary. Promotion is out of the picture. People are let go on a daily basis because they are not generating enough margin. Pretty much a dead end to your career.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is more to look at than the margin of each employee...

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

    Pros

    My team worked across various financial and healthcare applications from small to large enterprise solutions. Working across healthcare and financial was a unique view into the core similarities of enterprise solutions.

    Cons

    I found it difficult to be aware of various projects being considered, explored, or delivered across the companies wide portfolio. In addition, not enough early prototypes, or minimum viable products, were shared with our customers to ensure we were building the right solution.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider adding transparency to what each project team is working on, and enable sharing of project solutions, proposals, as well as customer persona information, such as pain points. Consider include more agile and lean development processes to enable teams to get customer feedback early and often, before, during and after the development.

    I worked at Misys full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    As long as you put in your hours, you can pretty much work anytime you want. Managers there are very laid back.

    Cons

    It is very hard to move up in rank there...rarely is someone ever promoted. No perks whatsoever...not even milk for your coffee

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You should appreciate your employees a lot more than you do and you laid off some good ones but kept the bad ones because you have no clue who works for you.

    I worked at Misys

    Pros

    Colleagues were very supportive. Some senior management were good at communicating business strategy and goals. Friendly environment. Employees excellent at working together despite where in the world they were located.

    Cons

    Offshored jobs to employees who were not fully trained to do the job; way too much emphasis on offshoring. Too much cost cutting; outdated equipment and scant resources as a result.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop thinking so much about the stock price and focus on retaining talent and product quality. Srtop cutting costs and go back to growing the company.

    Excellent Risk products but a company that only cares about the price of the stock at the expense of the employees.

    I have been working at Misys

    Pros

    - Flexible work hours
    - Good benefits
    - Even though mgmt does have an open policy, there are still some great and smart individuals in the compay
    - Possibility to travel to Bangalore :)

    Cons

    All of the technical jobs are being transferred off shore. The company does not care anymore if you have business specific knowledge or not. They think it is cheaper to have 5 less skilled Banalore workers for 1 knowledgeable US employee because there are "more" people to get the throughput they are looking for. They are just concerned with increasing the stock price because Mike Lawrie will get a big fat profit from it. Mgmt keeps telling us that the "people are the most important asset" - yeah right!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Since the sale of Allscripts, the company has no debt, yet they continue to make cuts and reduce staff. The transfer of work to off-shore is not working like Senior Mgmt thinks. The level of knowledge off-shore is pathetic. And the increase in errors and the lowering of customer satisfaction is because of the off-shoring and the amount of mistakes and misunderstanding they have.
