    I have been working at Kyriba Corp. full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great people to work with with a evolving culture. Growth over the years has led to great new opportunities. Company is positioned to be the leader in the treasury/liquidity/fintech space. Management is strong and product has evolved. Seems like they are making the right investments in technology, infrastructure, people for long term growth plans. Overall, a great experience working here.

    Cons

    Growing pains of course add to some frustration at times but a good problem to have. Alot of new people being hired so let's see if they can maintain the culture longer term. Adding partners to the mix has been rocky but seems like more process and people are being put into place to manage that.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the culture intact and don not hire too many higher up executives just because they have experience. Keep your middle management and key employees/departments happy as that is what you got you here. Kyriba is not an Oracle or SAP so please avoid bringing that culture to Kyriba otherwise you will lose alot of key talent.

    I have been working at Kyriba Corp. full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    *Every Wednesday we get a catered company lunch. *Fully stocked snack bar. *Full benefits from the start of day 1. *Flexible hours (as long as you get your job done and work a full 8). *A great start to a career, especially if you want to get into Account Executive or Account Management roles. *Great co-workers.

    Cons

    *Empty promises. *Lack of promotion and if they do, expect a long time to see your pay increase. *Verticals matter and some verticals create more opportunity than others & your commission comes from the opportunities created. *A very quiet office at times. Sometimes too quiet. *Very slow paced sales cycle and when deals do close you only get a very small percentage of the total ARR. *Commuting to La Jolla... is rough. *Upper management can be stubborn at times and will shoot down your ideas. *Recruiting is not the best. Will provide you good news about getting the role and will call you weeks later to say you didn't get the job. *Communication between different departments is not always the best. *Company going through growing pains.

    Advice to Management

    Be more organized and have better communication between the different departments. When you say you're going to provide a pay increase then do it! Don't have us chase you down wondering why we aren't getting paid more when you told us you will be paying us more. Just be honest and provide promises you will follow through with.

    I have been working at Kyriba Corp. full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I've worked at several tech companies in my career, and you don't find many with as much headwind as Kyriba: - Innovative cloud technology that solves real challenges for treasurers and CFOs - Continued record sales growth, and total domination in NA - Clear market leadership - An engaged and collaborative global team - Competitive pay and bonuses Found the team to be very welcoming, friendly and... collaborative, without a lot of office politics. Clear values. Everyone is focused on success. Kyriba is a great chance to join a winning company.

    Cons

    - If you're new to FinTech, you'll have a lot of learning to do, but not insurmountable. - Focused more on salary comp than stock, benefits - The normal growing pains of a company moving from start-up to IPO range

    Advice to Management

    Keep focused on product innovation and usability (UI), and listening to customers. More community involvement, including backing a cause that employees can rally around.

    I have been working at Kyriba Corp. full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - above average pay - flexible schedules - great co-workers - lots of growth (which is great if you want to make a contribution and be part of the momentum) - awesome benefits package - employee recognition programs

    Cons

    - disconnect between departments and locations - office is creepily quiet most of the time - levels of incompetence are high sometimes (and super frustrating) - typical growing pains (repeated process changes) - no health or wellness programs

    Advice to Management

    Cut the dead weight. Keeping third-rate employees on board only slows you down and sets you back. Work on team building and let employees know how they make a positive impact in the company.

    I have been working at Kyriba Corp. full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I've worked for a lot of places, some good, some not so good - I can truly say Kyriba is probably one of the best places I've ever worked. * Forward-thinking and progressive company * Exceptional business leaders, visionaries - driving the company forward - great opportunity to learn from them and be coached. * Mature, sensible work force, all pulling in the same direction * Leader in the Risk and... Liquidity space (which makes it easier to sell) * Entrepreneurial hustle feel - everyone is encouraged to add value where they can. * Everyone is empowered to put their ideas forward and try new things to help drive growth for the business. * Solid investment backing the business.

    Cons

    Growing pains, as you'd expect with a company that is growing as rapidly as Kyriba. Some processes and systems need updating. This is just a consequence of rapid growth, rather than a con.

    Advice to Management

    Keep coaching, empowering and guiding your employees to grow.
