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

    Pros

    Working on the cutting edge of re-engineering and migrating products to Microsoft Azure. Working with Microsoft as a partner offers insights and now training opportunities. The Fintech space is rapidly changing and growing, offering lots of opportunities you will not find in a traditional financial industry setting (ie: Banks or brokerages). Finastra has been very open to the work from home model. The Covid virus has actually accelerated financial institutions timelines for migrating to the cloud.

    Cons

    The Covid virus initially delayed financial institution spending, but this now seems to have resumed.

    The BDR and inside sales team of “managers”that took over have no idea how to lead and have no actually knowledge on the NACM division or the products. Company’s going down slowly. There is no career here and no future.

    Pros

    Awesome Sales Training! Great PTO. Remote. Good laptops and equipment.

    Cons

    The business development leadership team is run by bullies. The team consists of “managers” not leaders who micromanage, fail to support their people and don’t seem to understand the importance of constructive criticism. Unfortunately they look to recruit experienced professionals but to later treat you like an intern in this role (you are put through a rigorous hiring process btw). It’s simply a cut throat environment. No work life balance or care for family emergencies. Being a “BDR” is probably the worst/most underpaid role in the sales department and everyone knows it. The sales team has potential however when you put bad apples in management who cover for themselves, it’s difficult to have people give their all.
