    NY office like fiefdoms, travel cut back

    Business Analyst (Current Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsOpportunity to learn system/finance, they did do raises this year. If supervisor likes you, you may get opportunities (be sure to suck up, come in at 8:30 and don't leave before 5:30, execs do cubicle checks, seriously). May be decent opportunity in this economy.

    ConsNew owners cut back on travel. Made employees sign draconian non-competition agreement, where you must give 2 to 3 months notice before leaving - they don't do severance payments. Teams/depts really vary - one team could have all 20/30 somethings, friendly, another team 50 something old-timers who worked together for years, not so friendly. They expanded by buying companies, different cultures don't mesh, weird disjointed feeling between departments. Some very deep cynicism about product. Lots of people have left in past 6 months.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe 2 to 3 month notice is outright hostile to employees, also way of dodging severance. I don't trust management at all. New owners don't communicate.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Business Analyst

    Business Analyst (Former Employee)
    London, England (UK)

    ProsCompany's software products are widely used by major banks.So this may be helpful to get into major banks.Good place for fresh graduates and less experienced people to get business knowledge.

    ConsSalary is much lower than the industry standards.Yearly pay rise and bonus are a joke.Not much learning and career growth for people with 5+ years of experience.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCare your employees by giving a descent salary!!!!.

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

    Generally positive

    Business Consultant (Current Employee)

    ProsExposure to top tier corporates and banks treasury processes, great people, rather complex and highly configurable product, headquarters of clients are usually in big cities, which allows you to get to know a lot of countries/cultures.

    ConsOrganization, lack of new projects, no corporate culture, unclear vision after acquisition by ION Group

    Advice to Senior Managementkeep the good resources

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
