    "An Evolving Culture in a Growing Firm Shows Real Promise"

    Pros

    Competitive Salary. Comfortable environment. Recent additions to the Executive team and in Product and Business development departments have been people of very good caliber. Head of Sales personifies everything you have read in books on great leadership. Good work/life balance. Great Products and very high level of pride among the employees. Leader in services we provide.

    Cons

    Not for people who need constant direction or guidance or dislike change. Metrics and direction is clear but priorities change fast based on client needs. Not a young company but has a start-up feel in that there is still that attitude of hustle and constant change. Company culture allows for productive conflict. so ideas are appreciated but be prepared to pitch and defend them.

    Advice to Management

    More company wide emails and town halls. They are always inspiring and increasing their frequency is beneficial. Recent introduction of Yammer as an internal communication tool was brilliant. Continue to develop that.

    I have been working at Rimes Technologies full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Pay and benefits are good. Some snacks in the Kitchen. On Fridays you can where sneakers and dress up in your comfortable clothes.

    Cons

    Long hours, extremely boring environment, no work life balance, old computer monitors, and the application you work on is not exciting. This is an old school financial company. If you looking for something up to date, you will not like working here. Forgot to mention you get paid once a month.

    I worked at Rimes Technologies full-time

    Pros

    Working for a small company like RIMES, you work very closely with your colleagues. RIMES employees care about their work, and their personal success. They are very willing to help even the most Jr of employees provided they bring the right attitude.

    Cons

    The company is at a crossroads. For years the company has been so focused on growing at all costs, that they have lost focus and let their dominant product deteriorate. New hires have consistently been undertrained, and set up for failure, while the company expects better and better results. This has resulted in the company plateauing, creating a culture of finger pointing and blame due to lack of growth.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on what made the company great in the first place, its people. Fill the void by creating a company culture based off the employees, and establish top to bottom trust to make your employees feel appreciated. At the end of the day, an entirely new management team may be necessary to re-energize the company.

    Pros

    -okay pay/bonus.
    -Some exposure to the financial industry.
    -Snacks
    -Soho is cool. Good lunch options in chinatown.
    -Some good coworkers.

    Cons

    I would recommend not working here if you want to develop your technology skills. This company is more of an operations company than a technology company (as it's name falsely implies).

    -Disconnected management.
    -Monotonous work.
    -Little to no career development. They won't spend any money on you and will invest little time training you properly.
    -Many people are either extremely lazy or incompetent. Overall a culture of avoiding work.
    -Outdated technology and lack of forward thinking in management.
    -Tendency to throw people at the problem instead of building better workflows and tech.
    -Management pinches pennies.
    -No 401k matching.
    -No real career growth.

    Advice to Management

    Start caring about your employees and you will start getting better results and less laziness. Stop treating people as machinery and change the culture so that ideas can be generated from the bottom up.

    Pros

    Decent pay and pretty good hours.Good introduction to the financial tech world.

    Cons

    Not much of a challenge. Pretty boring. Repetitive work. Not much growth potential. Not much help available when needed. Management seems in over their head's at times.

    Advice to Management

    Be more humble. Hire more effectively for support related positions. Treat people like humans not servers.

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

    Pros

    1) Nice location in Soho
    2) Exposure to the industry (depending on what position you are in)

    Cons

    1) Disconnected decision makers: "Marching orders" come from people in London

    2) Terrible management: Employees are treated like robots. The company will expect you to do just about
    anything. On the flip side, compensation is similar to that of less stressful jobs in the field.

    3) The company has an identity crisis. Growing pains are very apparent as the company attempts to gain a bigger presence in the industry. There are lots of new hires that have their own opinions of what the company does.

    4) No room for career growth. The company would rather hire outsiders for top positions than promote people that deserve it.

    RIMES is for people who just can't do any better. If you're a college graduate you'll probably benefit from the experience but if you're a seasoned professional you should keep moving along. The glassdoor rating of this place should give you a good idea of what to expect.

    Pros

    It's fun working for a small company where everyone can have a significant impact. The office itself has a warm, friendly atmosphere.

    Cons

    Since the company is small, there is less room for career growth.

    Pros

    - Growing company, all teams hiring aggressively and 5 new departments created in the past year. So great career prospects and potential for growth within the company.

    - They organize events from time to time (after work cordials, hiking, secret santa, etc.) which is fun and create a nice team atmosphere. Often colleagues also informally socialize after work, which is nice.

    - Free treats in the kitchen plus nice chocolates from regular visitors and travellers

    - Great work/life balance. The client service team gives 1.5 vacation days for every extra day worked, so we quickly get an extra week or two of vacation!

    Cons

    - Company growing very fast and many things are changing quickly too, so it's never comfortable (but can be challenging for ambitious people).

    - Some processes or internal tools have become outdated and can be a little painful but the management and R&D team welcome all ideas that can help improve these processes. So these areas can be a new project for creative and proactive people.

    Pros

    They are located in SoHo and very close to public transportation to all parts of the city and outer boroughs. They provide snacks to offset any later in the day hunger pangs. Some of the management team are pleasant.

    Cons

    Do not believe anything management will tell you. Even though, New York is the official headquarters, the "marching orders" comes from London. The heads of departments are located there and they dictate policies and procedures from London. They will blatantly lie to the employees. Additionally, the management will request that you work overtime without compensation or recognition.

    "Terrible Place To Work"

    Pros

    The Work life Balance is reasonable
    They provide snacks to keep you entertained when you are bored to death with the work you have. Which is basically all the time.

    Cons

    Terrible management that constantly lie and backstab employees. They show little respect and its all about the bottom line
    No professional development or long term growth
    No real promotion opportunities. Constantly fighting to get your voice heard. Have to be in close with senior management (ie, work as a slave) to have any possibility of moving up.

    Wouldn't recommend this place as a place to work at all. Are far better companies in the same sector to work for.

    Advice to Management

    Listen, respect and reward your employees who often do a great job with very little guidance or help from senior management.
