    Uncertain Future

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Boston, MA

    Pros-Flexible work schedule that supports great work life balance
    -Fantastic people that promote a collaborative, supportive environment
    -Job autonomy to introduce new ideas and put them into action

    Cons-The same Omgeo culture that lets you introduce your ideas and put them into action also allows for less motivated individuals to sit back under the radar. Lack of performance is not addressed.
    -Lack of promotion opportunities.
    -Lack of accountability.
    -Confusing product portfolio.
    -With the DTCC 100% acquisition, there is some uncertainty on direction right now.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop trying to be everything to everyone; focus the company's mission and ensure all departments are working toward the same goals. Clarify the product portfolio. Align compensation and performance metrics accordingly. Keep the work life balance and opportunities for creativity.

    Former Employee

    Programmer (Former Employee)
    Boston, MA

    ProsThe benefits were good for a company of this size. Flexible work environment, partly based on the large employee turnover. They can't afford to fire anyone.

    ConsManagement so weak that they would hire management from contract firms to do what they should be doing. Product management appears to be former clerks. They are narrowly focused and have little vision; no leadership capability at all. They have organizational chaos. Executive officer seems to be a revolving door position. Looks like they sign 5 year contracts and then it is time to try again.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNewest in the line of senior management turnover is now in place. A total realignment and organizational overhaul is needed. This meandering outfit needs to define what type of company it is. It is really a technology company, but that isn't clear to anyone. Employees and customers alike.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Keep Looking

    Senior Developer (Former Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsIt's not hard to code here since nobody here knows how. It's a good place to learn because things happen very slowly here and nobody will notice your inefficient hello world program.

    ConsHuge layer of management that does not even manage yet alone know anything about IT. Lack of any change or innovation as everyone is only concerned about getting paid and their extreme lack of expertise does not allow this to happen. Club environment, you're either in or you're out - once again, expertise takes a back seat.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNo point because they know what they're doing, just collecting paychecks and nothing more. But the party can't last forever.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    A near monopoly

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsNot much competition, so no reason to improve the product.

    ConsBoring. They manage to make a product to serve a single client, even if the product makes no sense.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBlow out the cobwebs. Pretend you actually have some competition and upgrade your company. Get rid of the developers and analysts who haven't upgraded their skills since 1985. Don't move someone into a management position if they have no idea how their subordinates do their jobs.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Overall good work environment, but change is coming fast with DTCC buyout

    Director (Current Employee)
    Boston, MA

    ProsFriendly work environment - most co-workers are willing to jump in and help if needed. Relatively small company so easy to see the connection of your role to success of the organization. Work/Life balance is generally good.

    ConsSignificant changes due to the integration with parent company DTCC - concern that Omgeo's culture will not be maintained. Company is sometimes very slow to move.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCommunicate openly about the integration; ensure associates have a voice.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Technology efforts very disorganized based on old school IT practices

    Project Manager (Former Employee)
    Boston, MA

    ProsGreat location (Boston Waterfront) and close to public transportation
    Casual attire
    Flexible schedule
    Plenty of places for breakfast and lunch in the area

    ConsOld code; legacy applications are very brittle and require extensive maintenance
    IT leadership is too cloistered and focused inward on their own careers
    Poor communication amongst projects and teams

    Advice to Senior ManagementShake out the old (IT) guard and don't be afraid to try someone and something new

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    On the decline, not what it used to be..

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGreat benefits, 401k especially. Work life balance is good for some.

    ConsCEO is a micro manager, Technology org is too much into politics. Anyone with leadership skills and challenges the status quo gets pushed out.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAdvice to the Board - time for new Upper Management! The company has been shifting resources and removing leaders for years, maybe its not middle management that is the problem?

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
