Working there has a definite professional appeal. People are helpful and collaborative. I've often had opportunities to join in after-hours events and enjoyed each and every one.

Good place for start, kind people, but use old technologies and very old management.

Small to Mid sized Fintech firm. Lots of responsibilities under one hat but lots to learn.
Business/QA Analyst (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON29 August 2018
You need to be highly organized to work in this environment as priorities change depending on client needs. Good working culture and opportunities to collaborate when you develop a working relationship with the team. Communication barriers may also be a hindrance due to the diverse nature of the workforce. But its all a work in progress. Good listeners thrive in this environment.

Overall great place to work, you wont always fit in everywhere anyway. So take it with a grain of salt.

Not a fair place to work for.
General Labourer (Former Employee) –  toronto8 August 2018
They are very money oriented. Would rather spend on parties than paying their employees fair wages therefor turnover is high. Nepotism is favored. don't expect to be promoted unless you're someone's pet.
Pros
free lunches
Cons
Long hours and unfair pay

Enjoy the culture and work flow
Sales Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON8 August 2018
Depending on your type if position, it can either be really fast paced or can really slow down. The work culture is great, really friendly and welcoming group. Have quite a few company outings where you can really be yourself and network. HR encourages you to keep progressing within the company. Work/home balance is pretty good!

Worst Year of my Life
Sr. BA (Former Employee) –  Toronto18 July 2018
I was contacted out of the blue by this company's HR off a website they couldn't (wouldn't) reveal, and after hearing the shtick, I decided to give them a go.


Pros
- company located downtown a minute's walk from Union Station


Cons

- software is archaic
- company doesn't buy into ITIL, PMI, or IIBA ideologies
- power is too concentrated among a handful of people who've lost touch with reality
- the person sitting beside you could be gone one day without notice
- pay is below par with their competition a few blocks away
- advancement opportunities are few as those in management roles are very entrenched
- team work is minimal
- timelines are ridiculous (as little as 8 hours for a complete project including analysis, documentation, and updating the 'living' document in the group folder)

If you want to time travel to the 1950's, work here
RPM Technologies (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON11 September 2017
Your typical boring sit-at-your-desk-for-8-hours job. Old fashioned and outdated practices, company is run by 6 white men in their mid 50's who have a one-track mind, very little room to grow, no team atmosphere.

Great place to learn and grow
Associate (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON6 June 2017
Excellent place to learn all about financial software. Room for advancement if you apply yourself and take the initiative to reach out to others. This is not a place to coast. If you are driven and can learn quickly then you will be very sucessful.
Pros
Lots of learning opportunities (Lunch 'n Learns), Social events, Steps from Union Station; Lots of work; Work with elite groups
Cons
Requires dedication to your craft. Long hours, when needed.

Unfriendly, work to rule environment
Quality Assurance Analyst/Tester (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON15 August 2013
Micromanaged, unfriendly atmosphere, not permitted to ask/work with co-workers.
Learned QA testing in the testing and production environments, learnt the financial software and all about the financial type of accounts, TFSA, RRSP, RESP, etc. I learnt to write/understand business requirements with BAs, Developers, etc. Learnt to write, test and execute test plans, strategies and cases. Onsite web testing with our clients.
Co-workers were not easy to approach and given the employee turnaround, lasting relationships were not feasible.
Not enough time or support to meet deadlines, working overtime constantly, poor management.
The most enjoyable part of the job was completing each task and learning something new everyday.
Pros
Learning financial type of accounts, software, etc
Cons
Poor Management, No compensation
