    Smart, hard working people, leadership team has coalesced nicely, deadwood doesn't last long here (thankfully). Good products, employee benefits, snacks and company social events. Onward and upward.

    Go public.

    I have been working at FinancialForce full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Amazing FAST and FUN culture... Being an ISV of Salesforce is such a HUGE benefit to have and be a part of a fast boat !! I feel like I can write my own story and either stay on my current team or do something else and be successful there too.. and stay here at Financial Force... which is rare...

    Cons

    The cons... some will say it does move too fast.. and that you can't slow down... but I love it. There is really no "playbook" here, you have to be a self starter, this is not a place for a wallflower or "wait and see" kind of person.. but not really a con either.

    Advice to Management

    Keep hiring the big logo / Enterprise people you have been but keep the Start-Up feel.. it is great !! and never stop doing the new hire + onboarding process the way it is done. It is Top-Shelf and families need to know they are covered from day 1... that way they can focus on the job.. so cool !!

    Pros

    The people The customers Flexibility Work/Life Balance (They understand people have families) Motivated management who strive to stand by their values

    Cons

    Sometimes you have to work to fit in with the US hours, but the company recognises that fact and gives flexibility If you work remotely you dont get to enjoy the free snacks (probably good for the waistline)

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing, I think you are doing a great job. Its not easy when the Management Team are 8 hours time difference away, but you are approachable and open to ideas and recommendations.

    I worked at FinancialForce full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    There’s still a very strong market opportunity, if the product and culture become the focus again.

    Cons

    This used to be a vibrant workplace with a strong sense of purpose. Growth was strong and steady for a long time. It was a place where people enjoyed working together, were passionate about the mission, and stayed a long time. Sadly, the past 1-2 years, goals were set too aggressively, those targets started getting missed, and it turned into a cutthroat blame culture. Much money has been squandered on fancy external hires...

    Advice to Management

    Take your noses out of your spreadsheets and build real relationships with your people. Build up hard-working, passionate, loyal people—instead of tearing them down and throwing them out. Solve the basic long-known product flaws.

    Pros

    Pretty Good culture -Most of the time I think the company cares about their employees -Fun Industry -Decent Pay -Good healthcare (Free dental and vision is a huge plus) -Healthy work life balance -Decent PTO package (17 Days)

    Cons

    After working here about a year, from what I've seen, it seems like the best way to get promoted is to get another job offer... Otherwise they just want to keep you in the position you're good at until you leave for a better opportunity. While the pay is relatively competitive the retirement matching plans are below industry average. They only match up to 50% of your 1st 4% to 401k, so essentially 2% which is considerably...

    Advice to Management

    -Promote more from within vs seeking "Big shots" from our competitors - Up 401k contributions, 2% is very low. I promise your employees care more about this than a $75 wellness benefit -Standardize benefits across all offices. It seems like a slap in the face to get 5 sick days while California gets 8. -Again, promote from within

    I thought I would take a moment to respond to this posting. We do appreciate the feedback - we regularly promote internally over 10% of our workforce on an annual basis . We are committed to developing our employees and ask our Managers to to meet quarterly with our employees ...

    Pros

    Good people Good SF office location Solid leadership in place

    Cons

    -Not very many inbound leads -Sales Ops has been a mess all year -Unhappy customers -High Turnover -RIF without a lot of transparency -Hard to get references for sales opportunities

    Advice to Management

    Seems like the company as a whole has taken steps back in the last couple years. Also spend less on all of these different internal tools that don't work and offices like NYC that are basically vacant.

    Pros

    Strong leadership, super smart (and fun) co-workers, great work / life balance. The company and product vision combined with the openness of executives creates a real ability to make an impact.

    Cons

    Transitioning to a more mature growth company has its' challenges; change is never easy. People should cease negativity and leverage the numerous internal options to provide positive recommendations for impacting a successful journey.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to invest in our people, improve processes, products and drive towards the customer for life model; we are well positioned for success.

    Pros

    I wanted to update my previous positive review to another positive review now that the honeymoon phase is over and being with FinancialForce over a year. Growing Pains, but the current Leadership Team is impressive and keeps me believing in what we are as a company working towards. Patches are in abundance, Quarterly Bonus a huge plus, protected accounts. There is an opportunity to make $$ with a great work life balance.

    Cons

    Need more internal career pathing/development. All outside hires.
