Featured Review

Current Employee - Product Manager

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

Pros

It is a long list but i will try to summarise: 1. Talent and exposure: FIS is the biggest fintech outthere, it attracts lots of great people who work for the organisation and this will only lift up... the standards internally and spice the competition. You will learn from these people and grow quickly. Also, with technology taking prominence in the financial world but also in society in general, top talent is now more and more focusing on technology and fintech. Play with the best and you will learn something. 2. Fantastic client base: the division i work for has 9 out of the biggest 10 firms in that industry as clients and this applies to most of the divisions. Top banks, top insurances, top asset managers etc... just having calls with these clients will give you a great exposure to the best practices in the industry, latest trends and outlook. 3. Cross functional portfolio: FIS has more than 200 products across its 3 verticals: merchant, banking and capital market. There is no other fintech with such scale and presence across industries. Even when you are working for a certain product, you have visibility and exposure to a great number of other products and industries and this is where the fun starts in trying to learn from each other, integrate and cooperate when beneficial and implement best practices across products. FIS is uniquely positioned to solution for a bank for example from their core banking, treasury, payments, asset finance, asset management, asset servicing, loans, insurance, corporate actions, reconciliation, cards and the list goes on. The push is to have all of these act and behave in harmony, great potential and great opportunity for anyone to be part of this. 4. Room for self development: besides on demand learning platform and tons of materials and courses, you will feel encouraged to create your own work, in the sense of identitying a need and going on to build a solution for it, the products are there and the learning is there, you need to just go and make something out of it. Also, there is a lot to learn, you wont feel limited, on the contrary you will risk being intimidated by the sheer size of the organisation and the amount of learning you can achieve. 5. Career building: like any competitive environment, good talent is rewarded and offered career progression paths. Also, because FIS is in a prominent position, it has a lot going on in the sense that you will most likely get exposure to things that are normally reserved for very senior profiles elsewhere. Dont be surprised if you get to speak in an event in front of industry leaders and you will be trusted and supported to do so. 6. Flexible structure: never authoritarian. I have been here for more than 5 years, and i have seen less pleasant people tend to be purged systematically, the culture encourages and attracts decent people and they are the vast majority. 7. Flexible work setting: most of the business units are relaxed about dress codes, work from home, working hours... do your job well and deliver and you will be fine. 8. Compensation: FIS is a well resourced company and it will Compensate you properly. Benefits are at another level ranging from private insurance to helping you with your hobbies... the whole range.

Cons

Slow to move: like any big organisation, FIS can be slow to move with new products, but like a well oiled big machine, once it goes, it goes. Knowing what to expect is important and will help manage... the expectations Constant reorganisation: i dont necessarily see it as negative, but many do, the only unchanged reality at FIS is change itself. Normally reorgs are at middle and senior management levels and rarely affects the smaller ranks...

Advice to Management

Keep going with growing the business organically and inorganically to solidify FIS position as the world leading fintech.

Current Employee - Supply Chain Analyst

I have been working at Firstbase full-time for less than a year

Pros

Remote first and people first workforce. Allow you to work from anywhere from California to Belgium. You are going to get your hands dirty right away and will have no problem leaning into your... current co-workers for help and guidance.

Cons

The Start-up phase can have you wearing many hands and jumping to different tasks. So you have to be used to switching tasks efficiently. A pride in self-development of solutions to growth pains... instead of relying on and implementing existing software and solutions.

Advice to Management

Don't be afraid or too prideful to implement current software solutions to existing problems. You don't have to take the hard road every time.
