    Pros

    Decent pay and pretty good hours.Good introduction to the financial tech world.

    Cons

    Not much of a challenge. Pretty boring. Repetitive work. Not much growth potential. Not much help available when needed. Management seems in over their head's at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more humble. Hire more effectively for support related positions. Treat people like humans not servers.

    I worked at Rimes Technologies full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    1) Nice location in Soho
    2) Exposure to the industry (depending on what position you are in)

    Cons

    1) Disconnected decision makers: "Marching orders" come from people in London

    2) Terrible management: Employees are treated like robots. The company will expect you to do just about
    anything. On the flip side, compensation is similar to that of less stressful jobs in the field.

    3) The company has an identity crisis. Growing pains are very apparent as the company attempts to gain a bigger presence in the industry. There are lots of new hires that have their own opinions of what the company does.

    4) No room for career growth. The company would rather hire outsiders for top positions than promote people that deserve it.

    RIMES is for people who just can't do any better. If you're a college graduate you'll probably benefit from the experience but if you're a seasoned professional you should keep moving along. The glassdoor rating of this place should give you a good idea of what to expect.

    Pros

    It's fun working for a small company where everyone can have a significant impact. The office itself has a warm, friendly atmosphere.

    Cons

    Since the company is small, there is less room for career growth.

    good location in NY (Soho)

    I have been working at Rimes Technologies full-time

    Pros

    - Growing company, all teams hiring aggressively and 5 new departments created in the past year. So great career prospects and potential for growth within the company.

    - They organize events from time to time (after work cordials, hiking, secret santa, etc.) which is fun and create a nice team atmosphere. Often colleagues also informally socialize after work, which is nice.

    - Free treats in the kitchen plus nice chocolates from regular visitors and travellers

    - Great work/life balance. The client service team gives 1.5 vacation days for every extra day worked, so we quickly get an extra week or two of vacation!

    Cons

    - Company growing very fast and many things are changing quickly too, so it's never comfortable (but can be challenging for ambitious people).

    - Some processes or internal tools have become outdated and can be a little painful but the management and R&D team welcome all ideas that can help improve these processes. So these areas can be a new project for creative and proactive people.

    Terrible Place To Work

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in New York, NY

    I worked at Rimes Technologies

    Pros

    The Work life Balance is reasonable
    They provide snacks to keep you entertained when you are bored to death with the work you have. Which is basically all the time.

    Cons

    Terrible management that constantly lie and backstab employees. They show little respect and its all about the bottom line
    No professional development or long term growth
    No real promotion opportunities. Constantly fighting to get your voice heard. Have to be in close with senior management (ie, work as a slave) to have any possibility of moving up.

    Wouldn't recommend this place as a place to work at all. Are far better companies in the same sector to work for.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen, respect and reward your employees who often do a great job with very little guidance or help from senior management.

    Distrust the management.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in New York, NY

    I have been working at Rimes Technologies

    Pros

    They are located in SoHo and very close to public transportation to all parts of the city and outer boroughs. They provide snacks to offset any later in the day hunger pangs. Some of the management team are pleasant.

    Cons

    Do not believe anything management will tell you. Even though, New York is the official headquarters, the "marching orders" comes from London. The heads of departments are located there and they dictate policies and procedures from London. They will blatantly lie to the employees. Additionally, the management will request that you work overtime without compensation or recognition.

    Pros

    Great product, fun colleagues & handy office location; competitive compensation.

    Cons

    The company's rapid growth has introduced change, which isn't always necessary, and can at times be challenging.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More focus on internal communications would be useful.

    Not Bad

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in London, England (UK)

    I worked at Rimes Technologies full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good group of people from a diverse background. Being a small company you get exposure to many different aspects of the business. Opportunities to travel. Good place to learn a wide range of soft skills. It's good working at a company where you know every one.

    Cons

    Poor internal communication and lack of a visible strategy. Company is trying to transition from small to mid sized and this has resulted in a very top heavy company this combined with poor communication makes it quite political. Pay at entry level is very poor, but it does improve after time. Many of the top position recently have been filed externally.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more open. Improve communication. Pay graduates better. There are many smart people at Rimes that are undervalued, change the compensation so that it is more inclusive to get everyone pulling in the same direction.

    Pros

    The office is in a great location, unfortunately there are no other pros, some of the staff are very pleasant.

    Understand the importance of managing people and trusting staff.
