I have been working at FIS full-time for more than 5 years
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.
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.
I have been working at TeamDynamix full-time for more than 10 years
I always feel extraordinarily hesitant to rate anything with the highest possible marks, and that's no exception here. However, the more time I spend thinking about my experience at TeamDynamix, the... more clear it is to me that I really don't have anything negative to say about the company as it stands today. TeamDynamix provides amazing opportunities for career growth. I can't begin to express just how much my skill set has developed from working with the extraordinarily talented people on the team. There's always plenty of work to get done, and TeamDynamix places a strong emphasis on doing it right rather than just getting it done. If a project starts falling behind, we'll put additional people on it, cut scope, or push the deadline back. In absolutely no case will an engineer be expected to work overtime to meet a deadline - the company acknowledges that any such approach would result in an inferior product and unhappy employees. The atmosphere is casual and everyone who works here spends time getting to know each other and joking around, although that doesn't affect anyone's ability to get their work done. Engineers are encouraged to apply their own thoughts and ideas to their work, and micromanagement simply doesn't exist here. Everyone on the team is always eager to drop what they're doing in order to help their teammates, even when it does not benefit their own assignments. I say all of this having been at TeamDynamix for over a decade and knowing that this review would not be accurate for the entire time I've been here. The exciting part of that is that it proves the company has evolved and adapted as time goes on, resulting in an incredible place to work today.
The barrier to entry at TeamDynamix is very high. The interview process is rigorous and as a result it's no small feat to get an offer. I've seen many extremely talented and intelligent individuals... fail to make it through to the final stages of the interview process. There is an upside to this, however. Being so selective about hiring results in TeamDynamix being a place where only high quality talent ends up on the team. That means everyone who works here is exceptional, and nobody on the team is dead weight.
