    Pros

    Challenging clients. Working with competent people

    No work life balance, it is not a good place for working parents especially women. Salary increases and advancement are slow and linear.

    I have been working at Murex full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great place to start, multicultural, fruits and coffee/tea available. You get to work with tons of smart people and learn an incredible amount about industry. Top notch health benefits package.

    Cons

    This is a staging job at best. Very click-ish. If you get along with the right people, you can get away with murder. Especially if you speak French. No attention to junior consultants. Salary is bad considering the work hours needed. Some incredibly arrogant, insecure and rude people in senior management.

    Advice to Management

    You guys have an amazing product. Unfortunately, your people management skills are sub par. Care about seniors and juniors as well. It is well known in the FinTech industry that Murex has a tough time retaining employees.

    Pros

    You get to work on cutting edge tech with the leading buy side and sell side institutions. Everyone on the team is great and very supportive.

    Cons

    Long hours and development is located in Paris/Dublin so getting fixes done for customers can be a bit tricky sometimes.

    Advice to Management

    Move to the cloud :)

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Murex full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Salary is OK among software companies; - Free drink and fruits in the kitchen; - Good benefits (insurance coverage, pension plan, etc.)

    Cons

    - Work environment seems casual, but people can be excessively nervous and sensitive whenever they hear something negative; - Too much micromanagement and instruction, little liberty to manage your own daily job; - Not a good career choice for the math/stats/finance major. The only possible career path is IT support or engineer (not even developer); - Strong focus on vanity projects to win over clients instead of product...

    Advice to Management

    - Be more genuine to your employees. Spend time and resource to train them instead of taking advantage of them.
