Environment is bad with bad politics.
Culture is bad mixed up with very bad politics. The company uses very very old technologies. You may forget your own skills on recent technologies. Higher level managers are biased and do not try to recognize actual developers.

Don't work here
Wouldn't recommend working here, they overwork you, the salary is not fair and is not reflective of the amount of work you do. Difficult to get promoted

Fast paced, heavy workload, high expectations.
Based on my experience, IFDS is a typical employer within the financial services industry. Employees are expected to complete yearly reviews regarding client confidentiality and industry compliance. The workload is heavy and the expectations are high. They offer social activities to employees and engage in various charitable activities much the same as any other company in this industry.

terrible work culture. sweatshop
If in Operations or Client Services, Management expectation of staff is to work over 12 hour days. There is no worklife balance at any level.
Job security is non-existent. Staff consistently walks on eggshells. This company is full of politics, don't expect credit for any cost saving measures, etc.

Avoid at all costs.

there are a lot of details to be learnt
The company goal is great, and it was expanding very fast. However, the training program is not good as bigger companies, not a lot of web-based learning opportunities. You learnt from your team members, but everyone had very different background, so the training was not very efficient and different people are doing thing different, errors could not be avoided.

Easy going place to work
Easy going atmosphere. Ability to be trained and work on multiple clients and operations processes. No work outside of the office creates a good work/life balance.

Poorly managed company with absent or disinterested executives
The people are great and the culture with colleagues and peers is great. Unfortunately senior management (VP and above) lacks imagination,direction and focus. The organization is not on a stable foundation and could be so much better if responsibility was taken at the executive level.

Strong headed management team
Overhaul of management is required in order to prosper as an organization. Difficult to express new ideas as management is not willing to listen specifically in the regulatory department.

Workplace culture is like being back in high school, everyone is out to get you.


Most individuals are friendly and easy to get along but some individuals egos get in the way.

Great People, Great Culture
The people at IFDS were great; friendly, warm and professional. The culture was that of enjoying work while being productive. There were many social and team building activities scheduled and available for staff. During the World Cup TV's were available throughout the office and in lunch/break rooms to watch each game. Table tennis and foosball tables were available in the employee lounge.

There were philanthropic events in support of charities and employees were encouraged to participate in all.
Pros
Employee Lounge, Family Atmosphere
Cons
Communication between departments

Review
Company works on really good projects and goes all in for every project. Wasnt an agile environment but used the same concepts (PMs, DEVs). Developers were required to do their own testing.

Turnovers, unbalanced hours, bad management
Title says it all. No reason to join this company as they lost major clients in the past couple years and bad management. Life culture was good before the high turnovers. Quality people are not kept around.

Nothing
