    I have been working at Avaloq full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Offers many opportunities to grow - Offers the possibility to go abroad - Employees are great and the team spirit is strong - Offers many extras such as e-bikes, croissant on Fridays or free lunch - Does something for society, e.g. sponsoring 2-week volunteer work

    Cons

    - Managers often disagree with each other and as employees you feel this - Cooperation with teams from other countries does not always work - Some employees do not act in the interest of the company and this affects the mood of others e.g. they book the most expensive flights and hotels

    Advice to Management

    - Identify employees who constantly speak against the company and do not act in the interests of the company - Management should express more unity.

    Pros

    The office and the people

    Cons

    Strategy communication. Architecture is driven by old fashoned people and some choices are questionable at times. The feeling is that pay and compensation are below average. Occasionally there is too much cake in the office.

    Advice to Management

    Improve communication and take feedback from employees more seriously.

    I worked at Avaloq full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Avaloq is open to diversity and to new technologies. It is a company that gives opportunity to its employees worldwide and has been driven to be the best in the fintech industry.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, there is something wrong to the Philippine Office leadership which is the reason of the huge resignation of people. There is no clear direction or goals but they only moved by the business as usual. If this is not addressed, people will just come and go.

    Pros

    Great people with a good culture. A range of technologies old and new are explored to some depth. Opertunity to work on cutting edge microservices architectures and frameworks.

    Cons

    Communication between high level management and teams is often incoherent/superficial. There are huge risks related to the transition from legacy systems to microservices at a fast pace.

    Advice to Management

    Find more people with broad confident beleivable visions of what they can achieve and give them more resources and a mandate to do it.
