    Professionalism and work from home opportunities allow for great work life balance if you're efficient with your time.

    Great People, Poor Governance

    Jan 7, 2013 - Fraud Practice Tech Lead in San Diego, CA
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Middle Management and Technical Leads are talented and willing to help. Fraud technology (neural networks) is cutting edge.

    Cons

    Very poor product quality in the last 5 years. Management clearly had no clue how to resolve development process, so focused instead on cost-cutting and pushing sales to compensate. Went with overseas development, which made quality a bigger issue and stretched already-challenged people management process to the breaking point. Led to exorbitant sales comp packages and a speedier- than-usual revolving door for sales acct execs, client partners. Poorly conceived and poorly executed product marketing has demoralized the technical base. Sadly, many customer have come to expect less-than-acceptable product quality, in order to get to FICO fraud detection models The new CEO, Will Lansing, has remained well hidden, beyond a few global emails announcing products (which assistants write anyway) and chiding us to pretty-please come to the office and not work from home (even if there's nobody in the office with whom we work...) Internally, Finance runs the show, so other departments are forced to do their work for them, and woe be to anyone that questions it. We have time to fix this, but with competitors (SAS, IBM, etc.) starting to eat away at market share, time is running out.

    Good if you get the right team

    Jun 20, 2017 - Senior Lead Consultant in San Diego, CA
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    If you are in a smaller team with good management, it's great. But some of the bigger teams were known for 'churn and burn' culture. Technology is exciting and was fun to work with. Vacation and work from home policy was really good.

    Cons

    The company tends to pigeon-hole you. In other words, you get a job and there is not much room for vertical or horizontal movement. 1-2 promotions in 10 years is considered growth. No real raises for most. Bonuses are just OK.

    Pros

    - flexible hours and you can work from home if you need to - good pay

    Cons

    - Bad insurance plan with extremely high deductible that is basically like not having insurance at all - I know several people who had to work weeks straight no weekends, 14 hour days (luckily this was not me) - feel underappreciated/basically ignored by management and they're too busy to ever discuss anything with you - no women or people of color found in upper management - uses outdated/extremely niche technology no one else uses and won't update it

    Senior Software Engineer

    Apr 15, 2015 - Anonymous Employee in San Rafael, CA
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Contracts with our suppliers and customers have been renegotiated over the past several years. The resulting contracts have created a great potential for expansion and a need for analytic and software staff. Limited work from home is sometimes available. Good vacation benefits. Decent year-end bonus in recent years.

    Cons

    As is many corporations, managers are wooed and hired while the production level gets overloaded and offshored. Project schedules are set optimistically to meet contract needs, but staff is not added to produce. Significant free overtime is expected and commonplace. Salaries at hire are good, but promotion below management level is designed to be difficult and pay raises almost non-existent. A significant number of employees "boomerang" out to other companies then come back. Project management is very weak and in fear of reporting any problems to management.

    Lost Luster

    Jan 17, 2016 - Anonymous Employee 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Interesting industry. Select teams are very strong. Select management (at Dir/Sr Dir/VP) is very engaging and strong. Flexible work hours and ability to work from home

    Cons

    Alarming drop in morale over past two or three years. Invisible and siloed executive team. The exception is the new EVP of sales, who makes an admirable effort to communicate and be networked into the field. Majority of services, product management and marketing seem disgruntled, along with many sales teams in the U.S., U.K. and Europe. Financial strength seems mostly a result of scores business profitability, stock buyback and frequent expense and headcount reductions, rather than true investment and a sustainable growth strategy. Operates like a much larger, staid, process-heavy company, rather than the nimble Silicon Valley company leadership claims it to be. Leadership team is exclusively white males, few of whom have innovative/start up/inspirational energy a company in this sector needs. Harsh focus on quarterly metrics, frequently to the detracting of long term growth. Many senior leaders are elevated from individual contributor or sales roles, with little executive coaching and full-circle evaluation. low compensation, compared to competitors and Silicon Valley companies. Much conversation around, but little visible action to counteract, attrition
