    I worked at Fintrac full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Young vibrant workforce, visionary leadership (husband-wife team President-CEO), very strong belief in their mission to improve the lives of farmers and agricultural value-chains around the world. For some, the Caribbean-based home office is fabulous!

    Cons

    The bright young employees tend to burn out from lack of movement and the resulting brain drain is a real shame. The open office space in the USVI office is mostly distinguished by its high noise levels, lack of privacy and surfeit of both digital and human distractions. The President doesn't realize how toxic her energy can be at times - leaving the staff unproductive, often for long periods.

    Advice to Management

    They are doing so much right, focusing on correcting the open office issue (decades of research have confirmed that open-plan offices are generally associated with greater employee stress, poorer co-worker relations and reduced satisfaction with the physical environment) and the uneven nature of the management responses to uncomfortable issues would improve this organization significantly.


  2. "Good experience, difficult time"

    I worked at Fintrac (More than a year)

    Pros

    Competitive skill building with lots of resources available to try new things

    Cons

    It was an awkward time for the company--rapid expansion and then a lull in contracts. Management was struggling with it and passed these frustrations on to employees.

    Advice to Management

    Managers could use training in being effective team leaders/supporters.

    Pros

    Fintrac's staff are exceptional, primarily young and very talented, and for those lucky few who want island living, their office in the Caribbean is sweet! Management pays attention to the broad needs of their staff both in-house and externally.

    Cons

    Very strong personalities in executive suite mean mid-level managers will only get so far. The growing pains are evolving and admittedly it is hard to move from a small business to a medium-sized one without discomfort.

    Pros

    Amazing corporate vision and direction from the president. There's always a positive atmosphere. Unique group of individuals that pull together as a team to share workload and solve problems. Top performers are rewarded through advancement opportunities.

    Cons

    At times there is a lack of clear communication among management. Preferential treatment is apparent, but as previously mentioned, top performers are also rewarded.

    Advice to Management

    Stay the course, Fintrac is one of a kind and would top the "best places to work" lists if they qualify!
