    Former Employee - Software Engineer in Plano, TX

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

    Pros

    Team leads are helpful, knowledgeable, and listen to their team. Lots of open discussions and collaboration - your voice is heard throughout the entire development lifecycle.

    Depending on the team, you may get to build new features, work with modern tech, and help guide the direction of the product.

    Dev, QA, Product, and Sales all work very well with each other.

    Management trusts their engineers and stays out of their hair. Very little micro-management.

    Good work/life balance, plenty of PTO, flexible hours.

    Solid benefits.

    Good location, really nice new office.

    Cons

    Legacy codebase, lots of time spent on maintenance and not as much focus on new development.

    Not enough focus on modernization or clearing tech debt.

    Custom, in-house framework means developers have very little support or online help. Often, your questions can only be answered by a handful of people (the transition to Angular is helping with this, however).

    QA is undermanned, so developers often end up taking on that role to a degree (not always a bad thing, but it's extra stress that you aren't compensated for).

    Not much upward mobility, only a few promotion slots between each level.

    Advice to Management

    Cleaning up tech debt should be a higher priority. Deprecating the custom framework will pay off down the road, and more resources should be put on that project.
    QA needs more resources.

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

    Pros

    Excellent client base and potential for future growth with them
    Broad portfolio of products across the industry with some leading packages
    Visionary and top rate chairman

    Cons

    Far too focused on short term revenue targets at exclusion of strategic vision or long term profitability
    Some of the senior management have been overly promoted and simply do not understand the industry they serve
    Very difficult for outsiders to thrive as there are strong cliques and heavy political undertones
    For a global firm very London focused management and hard for regions to have a any say or clear understanding of decisions made before they are announced

    Advice to Management

    Structure of firm stifles the ability of industry leads to exert any influence. Has to be the only software firm that does not have overall industry leads with power to actually manage that vertical

    I worked at Misys full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great CMO. OK place for junior sales people to gain experience with large existing Fin Serv clients. Several support and services staff from original companies (before acquisition) are incredible, but only a few left.

    Cons

    In US, about 95% turnover in 3 years - about 24 Sales left company, some let go. MD tries to motivate with stick - most time spent reporting up to measure and monitoring staff, middle managers. Clients frustrated with Private Equity model, constant turnover.

    Advice to Management

    Invest less in sales and marketing, more on support and development - take a long term view, as if you were the founders.
