    Pros

    Finally after many years of its existence, Yodlee products are seeing some demand in the market. Flexibility in work schedule, benefits, great sales team.

    Cons

    Extreme (almost inhuman) work pressure without due recognition, no structured process, everything goes on in an ad hoc manner, passing the buck seems to be the culture, can't really blame people, they are all so overworked. Terrible product quality, terrible engineering and release management teams. Very very poor leadership in Product Development.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Replace the Product Development top brass, employees will be much happier, overall company will do much better.

    Miserable place to work

    Pros

    Business is going great for Yodlee. There are doing a number of deals, and the deal flow continues. Without a doubt Yodlee is a growing area and they are well positioned for growth.

    Cons

    Senior managements has no consistency. They repeatedly change priorities and there is not a willingness to honestly evaluate the companies true capabilities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to more honestly evaluate the true productivity of the company. Also, do not blame low level employees for the failures of senior management.

    Pros

    Benefits are paid for by the company infull, which is nice. Lunch room is filled with food and drinks But overall it's not worth it.

    Cons

    Disorganized. Lack of support from every group. Lack of communication. No accountability. Managements "don't want to know" attitude. Lack of respect. No work life balance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get involved! Know what is missing and work with the "appropritate" managers to find the solution. Understand the work load. Your team is in survival mode, processes and staffing will help remedy all of this. But most of all get rid of what is poisoning the Department.

    I worked at Yodlee

    Pros

    The flexible working schedule, generous pay and benefit
    Friendly, hardworking and talented coworkers
    Newbies "talent show"

    Cons

    1, The management didn't seem to have the long term plan, strategy and vision.
    2. The upper/middle management seemed to be incompetent and lacking integrity. "Yes" man occupied middle management layer; many seemed to work for their own career growth, not company's.
    3. Over promising to the customers, but cannot keep up delivering
    4. Losing core engineering talent, high turn over. Slave drivers adored and resented...
    5. Inconsistency - last quarter you could be the rock star, next year you would be let go. The management tended to blame on an individual contributor for the bad results
    6. Lacking honesty and transparency in communicating the good/bad news to the employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Firing the ground troops will not bring the company anywhere. Think long term and sustainable strategies and plans. Major restructuring required in the upper and middle management. Treat your employees like you treat your customers, and how you want to be treated.

    Former Employee - Product Manager in Redwood City, CA

    I worked at Yodlee

    Pros

    - flexible hours
    - general staff (not management, remember) is very nice and willing to help each other out
    - location is central in the bay area
    - can work from once a week at least
    - employee talent show is the best
    - company organized fun events like movie outings, picnic

    Cons

    because they have a big outsource center in India, there are early (7am) and evening (10pm) calls almost everyday. everyone works 10-12 hrs a day but there's no appreciation from management.

    there are too many 'Directors' in the company who do nothing but adding an extra, un-necessary layer to the hierarchy.

    They also like to hire from competitors without looking deeper into the competency of the potential hires.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more competent managers, esp. middle managers, who appreciate general staff, not just being 'yes' man to upper management

    I have been working at Yodlee full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The work culture, the people you get to interact with, the compensation package and obviously the growth. I joined in as a Associate Software Engineer and moved up to Software Engineer with a year.

    Cons

    Have not seen any major cons. But my work sometimes requires me to put in late night hours and some extra hours in the weekends.
