    I have been working at Yodlee full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    I've been with Yodlee a long time and think these are some of the best people to work with. While there are challenges in any company, Yodlee offers people a chance to learn way beyond their current experience and capabilities. I have seen many people grow quickly into new jobs and areas they thought were year away or never achievable. I like the support that all coworkers give each other. This is a true learning environment and one of the best places to work.

    Cons

    With a major office in India and international clients, the work demands get a little tough. But this is offset by the personal flexibility that people have in managing their schedule and work days.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Great open communication - keep it up.

    Pros

    Good vision for an innovative financial service platform. Highly motivated people and great culture.

    Cons

    Taking on a lot of work and we might need to prioritize other things, but overall the vision is well received when presented to the industry

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on what can be achieved short term, but plan for the long term.

    Pros

    Great people; Smart staff with good ideas; Forward thinking company. Yodlee work culture is fast paced and leading edge in PFM. I have no real negative comments to post......so far.

    Cons

    Onboarding processs needs to be tighter with a "checklist" type of scenario to cover off all new hire needs / requirements. Make it easier for newbies to get integrated...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay focused on Yodlee's core business. Be aware and capitalize on new market opportunities. Encourage / reward employees for the right behavior. Listen to employees and promote transparency

    Pros

    The work is interesting and challenging. The people I work and around are all willing to jump in and lend a hand or offer their assistance. The company is flexible and REALLY values work life balance. Who else do you know that pays 100% of the employees and their families benefits? WE DO.

    Cons

    Sometimes it is difficult to get time you need with the VP's.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work. Morale is awesome!

    I have been working at Yodlee full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Open communication from a couple of executives such as CEO and CFO

    Cons

    1. Full of politics, engineering management, those senior directors are root causes of the problems accumulated in the last 2 years, and are now counted on to solve those problems. What an irony?! Good luck to Yodlee.
    2. It is also very ironical the engineering management in charge has never been an engineer, what the heck? You think technical leaders can not take care of quality of products and can not manage projects and deliver, while only you can do? Since you don't know anything of technology, most of what you can do is to play politics and attack those good technical leaders and try to kill them, and get people like you to the management and form the secret party and conspiracy. Good luck and you need that ...
    2. It is interesting more and more hands-on strong people left, and the remaining are mostly who are "proud" of communication skills and can "coordinate", can "lead", can manipulate politics, but can not solve very simple problems in technical or product.
    3. The company can not be profitable, those dreams such as IPO are permanently gone.
    4. HR is used to do bad things to the people, there is no HR policy to fairly treat employees.
    5. The culture is very rude, totally disrespectful to the employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Good luck to Yodlee, your problems have been very deep and been there for a long time. I am sure you will need such luck to survive.

    Fire those management who play politics and attack others behind the scene.

    I worked at Yodlee

    Pros

    # Fast paced - You can learn as much as you can and contribute like wise, that is if you have at least some information on why you are designing/ coding as you do.

    # The application I worked on was very interesting . If they had someone to at least give some orientation, it is a very nice business flow to know.

    # Some systems are designed with very high end technologies and frameworks. Its very good to work on them.

    Cons

    # No guidance/documentation.
    # Other employees Hide information about the working of system or any other information which is helpful to get the job done even if they do know .
    # Very dissatisfied with the way they show partiality towards certain section of people.
      This section of people just "talked" ...and never "worked" .
    #Very confused workplace.
    # Expects you to work evenings and weekends with out even asking you. If you do not comply, you are fired.
    # Unwritten rule is your weekday starts on Friday and ends by Friday , as there was always an issue to work on from Friday evening.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    # No advice, as they really know what should be done, but simply --there is no room to do it.

    Pros

    I would say Yodlee is one of the best employers I've worked for in my career as it relates to benefits and perks. The work life balance is great. You're treated like a professional, and no one watches over your shoulder, or keeps track of when you come and go. As long as you get your work done and don't let anything drop you're given amazing flexibility, which is fantastic for working parents. Also, ALL health care benefits for the whole family are completely paid for by the company! And there's a kitchen stocked with food at all times. The people are smart and friendly, and depending on the department you're in, can be very fun to hang out with too.

    Cons

    The innovation and products are great, but the quality and deployments leave something to be desired. The company needs to focus more on execution and quality control, rather than coming up with new ideas and products.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on perfecting the great products you already have an offer to clients, before moving on to the next great idea.
