    Management decisions shortsighted at times. Market conditions worsened in the last 5 years which made it hard to retain customers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your people more before you decide dramatic changes. Do anonymous pols to get data from them.

    Pros

    Big company, offices in the different countries.

    Cons

    Kitchen in the HQ looks a mess and dirty, that's a shame. The entire derivatives "pricing" is a different term for gambling. People are promoted by the time they are there regardless of their skills.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Team leaders should have interpersonal skills, even in technical teams.

    Innovative line up of solutions. Greatly expanded coverage for the last few years and major focus on data. Some of the smartest product managers I've met. Nice location in great building.

    Detached top management and poor middle management. Very high turnover especially in sales. If you've survived more than a year, you deserve a medal.

    Sell the firm while you can still get a decent valuation.
