    I worked at OpenLink Financial full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    If you like what you do and do it well that is the reason for remaining in a role.

    Cons

    Having a Developer turn CEO is disaster in the making. A CEO who chastises a developer for his decision, a leader who has his best interest at heart, management you takes credit for your hard work and employee engagement that seems to make the leader look good they are trying to engage but then sticks it to the employee and complain later.

    Advice to Management

    Ion leaders need to take the company to the next level, staff with real quality, state of the art that can take this band aid of a product to the next level.

    I worked at OpenLink Financial for more than 4 years

    Pros

    *extracurricular activities like some plantation,outing,goodies. *work life balance . *reasonable hike *free cab service. *allowance for noon shifts as well. *most of work will be done from US itself some left chunk will go to other places.

    Cons

    * Stuck in old legacy technologies. *definitely no room for technology growth. *management is busy in organizing fun activities. *laying off employees though they have less than 100 head counts. *candidate who want to sit in office with no work and just lead life casually can definitely opt for this organization.

    Advice to Management

    cons are really sufficient to improve

    I worked at OpenLink Financial full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    Based on my 6+ years at OpenLink years ago: Terrific benefits, excellent 401(k) match, generous PTO, great work/life balance, wonderful location and office building, friendly family style environment until the CEO changes and management shakeups began.

    Cons

    I left once my 401(k) contributions fully vested because it was obvious as to the direction the company was headed. I think how at one time part of me wanted to go back but after seeing the current state of the company I'm glad that never happened.

    Advice to Management

    Rich Grossi - It's very disappointing to see what you let happen to the company. You were never very accessible as a leader to speak to (the occasional no conversation nod in the elevator was about all you ever did) but I figured you'd stand up for the company and its employees. Boy am I disappointed. I was fortunate enough to leave when I wanted to but many of my former colleagues were thrown under the bus due to...

    I worked at OpenLink Financial full-time

    Pros

    Their software is excellent, and their employees are excellent at their jobs.

    Cons

    Their management is non-existent. I would go so far as to describe them as horrible.

    Advice to Management

    Engage with your employees.

      I worked at OpenLink Financial full-time for more than 20 years

      Pros

      It used to be a very nice company - great benefits,nice pay,people etc. It was pleasure to work there.

      Cons

      After ION brought the company everything seems to fall apart. It looks like different place, a lot of people left or laid off, management (what is left of it) scared and insecure.

      Advice to Management

      I hope you will be thrown out like we did.

      I worked at OpenLink Financial full-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      Most of my coworkers were nice people.

      Cons

      They were bought by ION Trading, who is living up to there reputation of destroying and mismanaging companies. Massive layoffs and general business decisions that don’t make any sense. There is no stability here. I would definitely stay away from working here.

      Advice to Management

      You sold out to ION for money, and now you’ll pay the price. Simply a pathetic decision. All of f the other CTRM companies are celebrating now, because they know you will just fade away like Triple Point did when they were bought by ION.
