    Pros

    Young culture keeps the energy flowing, supportive colleagues, global perspective, the right mix of old(er) and new technology, innovative content and smart people. Great place to start a career in financial markets and technology.

    Cons

    The necessary changes that the new management has introduced, has been disruptive for many.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure you adjust processes to your people and not the other way around. Make diversity a priority in hiring at all levels.

    I have been working at Eze Software full-time

    Pros

    Eze is a great place to work straight out of college because of the social atmosphere-- a lot of 20-somethings, social outings, and friendly vibes, but it's not the place you would want to stay forever. The Associate Directors (people who run teams) are often extremely helpful and knowledgeable, so you feel empowered. People tend to love their bosses, but dislike upper management. There have been a lot of people that have worked here, and gone on to work on amazing things outside of the fin-tech field. It's a solid place to collect a paycheck for a couple of years and then to go on to pursue your passion elsewhere. They asked the former, do-nothing CEO to step down, and replaced him with the hard-working President, so this is a glimmer of hope.

    Cons

    The starting pay is good, but there are no bonuses, and raises beyond inflation adjustments only come around once every 2-3 years. The work isn't particularly inspiring or fulfilling. They're focusing on moving jobs to India, so morale and job security feels like it has been at an all-time low. Nobody likes the direction of the company or the new service model, but executives are so far removed that they won't listen to feedback. It's no meritocracy; pay is rewarded based on tenure, not quality of work, so you get some real idiots raking it in while those who put in 100% aren't compensated as such.

    Advice to Management

    We have to listen to complaints about the new model, so you need to ditch it and go back to the old model, which worked. Your treating the India office as top priority scares a lot of people into thinking their jobs are going to be outsourced, so be honest about your intentions. Give raises to the unnamed employees who are the backbone of this company, not just the ones who happened to have stuck around the longest. Take notice to the alarming amount of attrition across all offices, and give employees/clients what they want, not what you think they want.

    Pros

    good people to work with. great marketing guy who will make this mess of a product look better than it is

    Cons

    this company is a sham. management has no idea how to run a company, product that does not work as it should, service going down the drain with the new model.

    Advice to Management

    sell while the lipstick still covers the pig

    Pros

    Average for the industry salary, polite colleagues, 401 (k) matching and overall good benefits package.

    Cons

    Company has seen its peak in late 90s - early 00s. It's full of unmotivated engineers using outdated technologies. Office is old and somewhat ugly.

    Advice to Management

    Hop onto the new tech stack train.

    I worked at Eze Software full-time

    Pros

    -To Eze’s credit they were able to hire people for good cultural fit and that has created an atmosphere where most people get along and become friends inside and outside of work
    -Some managers are truly good people and care about their subordinates' development
    -Patagonia swag
    -Beer Fridays
    -Free water, coffee, paper towels and toilet paper

    Cons

    -CEO is using a 20 year old playbook to make decisions in 2016 and although it’s clearly not working it is still being pushed forward with brute force
    -The company is only focused on numbers and how top brass can reach those numbers and eventually get paid out. ALL else is unimportant
    -Outsourcing to India makes 0 sense but is currently priority #1
    -Lack of transparency in recently introduced salary bands that may or may not be incorrectly calculated at the 75% percentile. Why 75%, is that all employees are worth? This is a question no one will ever answer for you but they will be sure to make you aware that your salary is capped
    -Recently done away with bonus eligibility for individual contributors :-( and therefore no incentive for top performers
    -A few at the top control the political landscape of the company which means transparency is next to nothing

    Advice to Management

    -Focus on your people or else your product (and your pocketbook) will suffer
    -Shed the “fin-tech hedge fund“ arrogance and do what is best for your customer not what YOU think is best for them
    -You are not the Eze that once was…so stop pretending to be
