    I have been working at Misys full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Genuine appetite for innovation. Amazing client base and reputation. Great office spaces. Great people and culture. Unique offering.

    Cons

    Ridiculous medical deductible (US). Few bad apples both in middle management and products.

    Advice to Management

    Stick to your guns. You have the good strategy.

    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.

    I worked at Misys full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The Benefits and PTO were above average and people were great to work with minus the management was extremely poor.

    Cons

    I would not choose to ever work for a company that supports a good old boys club. As of 2017 a good portion of the management has not changed and is still abusive to their employees.

    I worked at Misys (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent coworkers, good benefits, relax atmosphere

    Cons

    Upper management are not the most trustworthy employees. Tells employees one thing and expect something different. Employees reviews are not done in a timely manners.

    Advice to Management

    HR should be bias in their opinion on employees and make sure that policy's and procedures are follow by both employees and management.

    I worked at Misys full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Worked with some very intelligent people.

    Cons

    Not enough room to grow, but it is a small company. Also they did not invest in their employees, so it was difficult to retain high performance people.

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

    Pros

    NY office is very small (only 3 floors). Nearly half the office works from home on Fridays and depending on the team, can WFH as long as your manager approves.

    Cons

    Depending on your team, travel schedule can get hectic with back to back trips and living out of a suitcase for weeks straight. Office morale is very VERY low. No one is friendly. HR is less than helpful and sometimes inexperienced. Lack of female leadership. No Senior Managers on my floor were female. There was only one C-level person who was female.

    I have been working at Misys (More than a year)

    Pros

    With the new office, they picked a good location and purchased quality furniture.
    The dev managers are amazing and are open to innovation and new ideas. There have been plenty of ideas that have been implemented by our team that have come from people who have been here for less than a year.
    The entire dev team is open to helping new people.
    QA and Dev work very well together.
    Promotions and raises seem like a regular thing, if they are deserved.
    People are regularly recognised for their achievements.
    This year the bonuses were fully funded.

    There are plenty of locations to go out to eat within a very short drive.
    Casual dress code.
    The employees are generally easy to get along with.
    Continuing education programs for developers
    Health and wellness education.
    HR is available and responsive to questions.
    Free soda, tea, and coffee.
    Work from home is at managers discretion.

    Cons

    There is (practically) no food within walking distance.
    Huddle/Focus rooms don't have phones so there are often long calls made near you that are distracting.
    Not much personal space.
    Bonuses have been historically hit and miss.
    Very few people get a second monitor even though it would improve the work people could get done.
    Long hiring process.
    The amount of new people has slowed down even though there are open spots.
    Though the people on the groups get along, the groups can have a hard time being on the same page.
    HSA/High deductible Health Insurance.
    Work from home is at managers discretion.

    Advice to Management

    Create better communications between products, Finding out about specific dates that impact us in All Hands meetings is not good.
    Hire more p2/p3 developers, p1s do add value, however there is a need for experience.
    Give more funding to the momentum committee.

    Pros

    Outstanding benefits which makes Misys a very attractive place to work, especially the paid time off, it is very generous.

    Cons

    While the paid time off is very generous you will need to be very disciplined to ensure work does not bleed into your time off.

    Pros

    I have been working for Misys New York for a number of years and what keeps me here and is the most critical aspect of working at Misys is the ability to work with a great team of people. Every day is a learning experience, in a very fast paced environment. It is an envigorating experience.

    Cons

    Our office space needs some love with a creative flair. Hopefully resolved soon.
