    I have been working at NOMIS SOLUTIONS full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    If you are a hard worker and dedicated then you will be appreciated and rewarded at Nomis.
    Nomis deliver to their promises and have a true desire to grow as a Company and for it's team to achieve more in their field.
    Management listens and help employee and business to grow.
    Nomis genuinely Supports Candidates relocation and sponsor their Work Visa if needed.
    Great new Office in Brisbane, with basketball Court, Gym, Ping Pong and even a foosball tournament. Lots of food and Company fun sponsored events!

    Cons

    You won't get the perks that Facebook and Google offer because Nomis is not a Large company but you will be well known and recognized by the CEO and not just a number in the corn field as the case with large Organizations.

    Advice to Management

    Keep pushing the wheels until gaining the Diamond Medal in Banking Pricing Field.

    I worked at NOMIS SOLUTIONS full-time

    Pros

    Not a bad commute. Handful of nice people there.

    Cons

    Where to begin? After I accepted the job I came to find out that there was a re-org in my department that threw everything into upheaval. Simple things such as login credentials for online accounts or licenses took months to find, which is embarrassing for a company that size.

    They outsourced a lot of roles to remote freelancers who knew more than the people who actually worked at the company. One of those freelancers was a former employer who they had let go, which struck me as very odd. It became clear to me in my conversations with members of other departments, that ours was the redheaded stepchild of Nomis. Office politics is a feature of every start up, but it was out of control at this company. .

    Advice to Management

    More oversight and more transparency. Nip drama in the bud before it gets out of control. This isn't high school.

    Pros

    Huge opportunity for growth given banks’ strong need for the type of value generated by the Nomis platform

    Cons

    Being a relatively small and scrappy company, there won’t always be someone there to answer your questions. You need to be proactive and blaze your own path. That said, there is plenty of runway to do so.

    Advice to Management

    Focus strongly on unifying strategy on a single platform vision that is compelling to the global market.

    "Nice try HR, but STOP POSTING FAKE REVIEWS!"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at NOMIS SOLUTIONS full-time

    Pros

    Smart people willing to help.
    Ample parking.

    Cons

    Management will throw you under the bus to avoid taking any responsibility themselves.
    The offices are located in quite possibly the most boring and uninspiring part of Silicon Valley.
    To get the sale, the company advertises features to clients that do not exist, so then the product team is in a panic to cobble something together.
    Certain C-level execs talk really loudly to convince you that they are credible; give it some time though and it becomes clear that they are all talk and little action.

    Advice to Management

    Nice try HR... all the 5-star reviews are written in the same way. They all sound like marketing collateral or cheap propaganda.

    All the smart people are leaving.

    Pros

    Great people and good customers, low maintenance and happy employees. Treat people well and they will do great things. No micromanagement here and as long as you produce you are treated well.

    Cons

    Not mush room for growth and expansion has been a slow moving process that takes a long time to endure year over year over year. They are opening a few new branches but not in any kind of quick succession.

    Advice to Management

    Treat you employees well and they will in turn contusion e to produce and treat others well and everyone will be a happy place to be and live and such

    I have been working at NOMIS SOLUTIONS full-time

    Pros

    1.) Great, hard-working coworkers who bring their full personalities to work every day.

    2.) Get to solve real challenges for huge (household name) clients in the retail banking space.

    3.) MUCH IMPROVED work culture. Gone are the days of poor documentation, black box decision-making, and a lack of individual accountability. Here to stay are processes that enforce transparency, track accountability, empower technical decision-making at the right level, and empower those willing to step up and take responsibility. Employees are now asked to do their homework, lay out all the options, and get buy-in on the best path forward before proceeding. Nothing revolutionary here – just a solid way to ensure the right decisions are being made.

    4.) Fun office events and lots of perks (big pantry, free meals, ping pong, foosball, smoothies, fitness days, community service days, shuttle service to BART/Caltrain, etc.).

    5.) Work from home policy is flexible and work-life balance is commendable.

    6.) Many avenues to direct feedback. HR is great and if there is anything you want to share with the CEO you can schedule lunch with him. VPs and Managers (in my experience) are willing and able to talk with you about anything you have a concern about.

    7.) The culture is young, but professional. Intellectual, but not elitist. A previous review mentioning an instance of sexism comes as a bit of a shock, as the office culture is not fratty.

    8.) Everyone knows everyone and people give you the time of day.

    9.) Communication of the product vision has gotten much better in recent times and the future looks exciting.

    10.) The work is incredibly challenging. Nothing is easy. Client data systems are complicated, the analytics are not trivial, user testing is challenging to carry out, clients have extensive documentation requirements, sales cycles are very long, and debugging software written years ago can cause headaches. The work is not for the faint of heart, but nor is it impossible. People who ask questions, have an eagerness to learn, work well in teams, are ambitious with what they want to get out of their career, and are looking for a challenging but fulfilling experience do well here.

    Cons

    The company has progressed leaps and bounds in the past few years on its pivot from a consulting-centric financial services company to a hybrid enterprise software / SaaS business. The journey is not completely over, but Nomis is very much on its way. A pivot of that magnitude has inevitably rubbed some the wrong way, especially as the work culture has had to change to foster the productivity levels required to scale the product and business sufficiently.

    1.) Not everyone at the company understands what it means to build a truly scalable, sustainable, and profitable business. Not everyone who left did either. This lack of understanding has led to disagreements in the past on focus and priority. Better communication and reinforcement from the top that the new culture is what is needed to get the stock price to where we all want it to be is important for keeping everyone motivated.

    2.) As is common with enterprise software companies, there is a natural resource trade-off between supporting existing customers and building future software. In the past, there were times when the future was not considered as heavily as it should have been, and the effects of this are being felt today in some cases. As such, this has meant not everyone has been happy with how they have had to spend a portion of their time. Management has become more aware and sympathetic of this recently, but it is nonetheless still a reality of working at Nomis.

    3.) Nomis software is critical to decision-making for our clients. As such, they have high demands, and it has sometimes been challenging to ensure complete client understanding and satisfaction. Flying executive clients to the Nomis office to meet and greet the folks doing the work has been a tremendous help recently, but more should be done to articulate the exact reasons why Nomis is valuable to each of them (as there are many clients and this tends to differ by client).

    Advice to Management

    Keep encouraging, supporting, and reinforcing the new work culture. Acknowledge the people who are leading the charge on this.

    Be realistic about the path forward. The growth targets are sizable, though achievable if the right focus is given to perform the work needed. Too many distractions via ad-hoc work, though useful for this year’s financials, have a chance of hurting long term growth by slowing down the building of future revenue-generating products. Obviously there is a balance that must be reached, but continue to question whether or not we are where we should realistically be on this.

    - Smart people from which you will learn about modeling customer behavior, big data, banking, software development and have a blast while helping an industry move forward.
    - Opportunities for career growth in the B2B FinTech space and work with the biggest name in banking.
    - Nomis is changing the way banks think about customer behavior, pricing strategies and execution.

    Cons

    - There are overlapping roles that create unnecessary friction.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the drive towards a scalable software offering. Say No to bad deals. Improve offers for technical roles to match the highly competitive job market.
