    I worked at Backbase full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Some very dedicated, hard working and nice coworkers who can have fun
    Attempting to change the cons

    Cons

    The demands by upper management can be tough and unforgiving. Corporate centric culture rather than focused on people. Small recognition given to those who put in the time, more about the company succeeding for the good of profits rather than self growth and learning. VERY focused on sales, the number game but disregard actual delivery. Personal life often overlooked and pushed to the side. Although a rather flat hierarchy, a lot of energy is put towards impressing sales and executives because they had the loudest voice and therefore the most power to fire/hire. Employees must expect direct conversations, small amounts of empathy and extended hours/personal time sacrifice.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage people directly with strong language. Understand not everyone is into the sales/corporate success culture. Understand the different work cultures the business operates within around the world. Be honest and don't try to play on emotions.

    I worked at Backbase full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Free lunch, good healthcare, nice office space

    Cons

    Below market pay, the lunches aren't really that good, and sometimes there is nothing to do but they make you sit at your desk anyway.

    Advice to Management

    Pull out of the US. You're clueless about how to operate in the greatest nation on earth.
