I have been working at XIFIN full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Casual dress, free soda fountain, bagels on Fridays. Great friendly people. Positive outlook for future growth. Accrue third week vacation beginning day one of fourth year. Normal holidays plus two floating for a total of 7. Company does not operate on the PTO model.

Cons

Hiring has not kept up with growth. Some outside hires into upper Mgmt caused more harm than help. Those capable rarely promoted, but good enough to train those from outside hired above them. Does not make sense. Some Depts are the "golden child" and all decisions made to help them, whether or not to the detriment of others.

Advice to Management

Talk to your employees. Listen to them. Understand the everyday obstacles to success. Get rid of upper mgmt from the outside if they haven't learned the system or made positive change in the first year.

    Pros

    Healthcare benefits are good. Stock options, if available, can be generous, depending on when they vest.

    Cons

    XIFIN has a longstanding reputation for treating employees poorly. The implementations group and technical implementations group are in complete chaos at the time of this writing. Nearly every implementation coordinator and technical implementation specialist has less than a year of experience. Turnover is quite high and morale is quite low. Extensive overtime is expected, but not rewarded, nor even acknowledged. Staff are regularly criticized at the drop of a hat by management and coworkers alike - both privately and in front of customers. However, alliances can be made if loyalty is proven to a select few of the most tenured staff. choose carefully.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage staff to take risks. Allow staff to learn from mistakes. Praise in public and punish in private. Always give staff the benefit of the doubt. Manager should stop throwing subordinates under the bus in front of customers, just so that you can appear correct.

    Pros

    Business Casual dress, bagel Fridays, some very nice people to work with. There is always a challenge to learn either new functionality or a new line of business for a new customer.

    Cons

    Micro-management from Management. Credentials to systems for a new employee can take up to four months. Not feeling appreciated for the hard work and long hours put in to the company. If we don't work a minimum of 9 - 10 hours per day, we are told that we don't put in the necessary hours.

    Advice to Management

    Take the CEO out of the hiring and firing decisions. She should not be involved in the day-to-day runnings of the company. Appreciate your people. Promote from within to any who deserve it.
