    Former Employee - QA Analyst in New York, NY
    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at FX Alliance full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    For QA folks: Steady stream of work Reasonable balance between work life- since work is not overly challenging A great place to work if you are NOT looking for challenges in your career or any sort of career growth Middle management employees tend to stick around forever and rarely provide an opportunity for promotion by attrition.

    Cons

    One mans poison is another mans elixir. The Pros mentioned above could be Huge Cons for some. 1For Functional Folks- You hit a plateau very soon and its a struggle to keep the motivation up since there is nothing much to learn . 2 Growth potential is very rare- and if you dont enjoy testing the same set of features or executing the same tests again and again - This is NOT the place for you. Certain aspects may... have changed since their aquisition by Thomson Reuters so my update may be outdated.

    Advice to Management

    Advices in Proffesional circle is useless- especially an advice propogated via a third party site. So I leave the higher management to do what they do best and run their own show.

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at FX Alliance full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Senior Management allows employees to manage and run with projects Great team of seasoned professionals to learn from Open, friendly and inclusive environment

    Cons

    High pressure environment is not for everyone but those who thrive on this are rewarded well At times software is brought to market a little early and that can cause issues

    Advice to Management

    Management does a great job of creating a vision and communicating that but the important thing is not to be distracted from that by noise and ensure what goes to market is fit for purpose and wont cause unnecessary issues
