Great people, but top management only care about revenue and costs

Principal Consultant (Former Employee)
London, England (UK)

I worked at Temenos full-time for more than 8 years

ProsOther employees go out of their way to help you, great banking product, lots of autonomy and freedom to act on your own initiative

ConsCompany only cares about money, not their customers. Committed to offshoring, great if you live in India but the UK operation will shrink.

Advice to Senior ManagementStart really caring about your customers or you will start to lose business

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

Worst company Temenos India.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Temenos

ProsYou can learn banking concepts , u can get good appraisal and onsite opportunity if you only know how to praise the Senior management. There are few people who became leads this way.

ConsEverything.. worst pay structure. No hikes, nothing. Below average pay compared to their partners. People who work doesn't get anything, only guys who always praise the Pm get good appraisal.
Technology is so closed source so you cannot jump to other companies easily. Even you cannot join the partners because of their poaching agreement with all the partners. Simply it's a doom for your career.

Advice to Senior ManagementLearn management or just stay idle. Don't try to do what u don't know how to do.

Good salary - but almost all R&D development now in India

Product Manager (Former Employee)
London, England (UK)

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

ProsGood initial salary, good benefits package. Industry leading Banking software, huge client base and global coverage.

ConsIndian development challenges - with standards, lower professionalism, culture, even language (english) skills. If are outside India - in product or services, can be completely dependant upon India delivering - and they just are not as good as expected / if used to 'western' standards. Little to no Professional Development support for a company of this size. Have been alot of mandatory redundancies in the last couple of years - as part of unrelenting cost cutting.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep trying to raise the standards in India - its the key differentiator to other Corebanking vendors.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Good Vision, Dynamically Changing Environment with out dated HR policies.

Software Engineer (Current Employee)
Chennai (India)

I have been working at Temenos full-time for more than 5 years

ProsFlexibility
Friendly Management
Reasonable Pay
Scope for innovative Ideas

ConsGoal and Companies Direction keeps changing every year
Still School like culture in some areas
No upto the mark hardware infrastructure
Out-dated HR policies.
More process than the actual work done.

Advice to Senior ManagementChanging the companies goal every other year is only going to make employees more dis-oriented and less confident about the company.
Now we could see lots of good changes please keep up the good work, consider and implement employee feedback.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
