    I have been working at FinancialForce full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great work life balance Friendly and accommodating people Lots of perks such as food, drinks and monthly treats Constantly working on new projects Great collaboration areas A lot of focus and support for your self development with alloted time towards it each month. Break out and relaxing areas away from your desk

    Cons

    Salesforce limitations as Apex isn't the best language to work with You'll have to maintain your skills at home for other languages Seems to be difficult to get promoted.

    I have been working at FinancialForce full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great Salary Unmatched work-life balance Great Office Great Team Mates - really committed intelligent people Solid Tech being on the SF platform Local leaderships doing a great job

    Cons

    Can feel a touch directionless at a global level - this has more to do with the distance issue than the actual companies direction. You really need to dig in here and get it done - those expecting an enterprise support model around them will feel lacking. We're a growing organisation that's still finding its feet regionally.

    Pros

    Intentions are right and the leadership team is doing everything to launch this rocketship. Everyone in Sales celebrates your success and are willing to help. Sales enablement is doing everything to help be more efficient and are constantly introducing new tools. Great work/life balance.

    Cons

    Growing pains. It takes forever to find simple answers which leads to frustration.

    I have been working at FinancialForce full-time

    Pros

    Workspace: a took a while but we now have a great workspace, actually designed to help us collaborate a be productive. People: nothing novel, I guess, but this is my review... I work with some wonderful people, many of whom I consider good friends. In general I feel the rapport and support for each other is pretty good. Senior management: they are listening to feedback and, to varying degrees, actioning and improving things based on our feedback. Benefits: for the UK, I think the benefits a great. Flexibility of working hours and opportunity to work from home help manage the work-life balance. Other benefits that I really appreciate provide cover for health and financial stability.

    Cons

    Salesforce: it can be restrictive, prescriptive and generally frustrating to work on. Although, I do recognise the benefits and it is improving. Communication: disjointed and lacking at times, plus the Career progression: we're getting there but has been a painful journey to get to the point of structure and visibility. Line managers: simply changing a person's title does not make them a good line manager!

    The people The customers Flexibility Work/Life Balance (They understand people have families) Motivated management who strive to stand by their values

    Cons

    Sometimes you have to work to fit in with the US hours, but the company recognises that fact and gives flexibility If you work remotely you dont get to enjoy the free snacks (probably good for the waistline)

    Pros

    Pretty Good culture -Most of the time I think the company cares about their employees -Fun Industry -Decent Pay -Good healthcare (Free dental and vision is a huge plus) -Healthy work life balance -Decent PTO package (17 Days)

    Cons

    After working here about a year, from what I've seen, it seems like the best way to get promoted is to get another job offer... Otherwise they just want to keep you in the position you're good at until you leave for a better opportunity. While the pay is relatively competitive the retirement matching plans are below industry average. They only match up to 50% of your 1st 4% to 401k, so essentially 2% which is considerably low for a tech company. -Lots of turnover and a clear preference for hiring from the outside vs promoting from within -Hard to tell the direction of the company. -Recently laid off about 10% of workforce which is nerve racking for the whole company

    FinancialForce Response

    October 30, 2018SVP HR

    I thought I would take a moment to respond to this posting. We do appreciate the feedback - we regularly promote internally over 10% of our workforce on an annual basis . We are committed to developing our employees and ask our Managers to to meet quarterly with our employees to mutually discuss three key areas 1) what has gone well 2) what are opportunities for improvement 3) what are your 2-3 personal and professional development goals. We recently provided a company wide salary adjustment pool that included an opportunity for promotions and adjustments and we saw a number of promotions through this process. FinancialForce is a Pre-IPO company, most companies at our similar stage actually do not provide any 401(k) match at all. we are proud of the full benefits package we provide our employees and continually strive to provide great benefits including the wellness contribution to help cover the cost of belonging to a gym, palates, yoga etc... we also offer commute benefits and competitive time-off benefits. We care about giving back to our communities and through FinancialForce4Good we encourage all our employees to take 24 hours (3 days) a year paid to provide support or give back to a cause or not for profit charity of their choice.

    Pros

    Strong leadership, super smart (and fun) co-workers, great work / life balance. The company and product vision combined with the openness of executives creates a real ability to make an impact.

    Cons

    Transitioning to a more mature growth company has its' challenges; change is never easy. People should cease negativity and leverage the numerous internal options to provide positive recommendations for impacting a successful journey.

    I have been working at FinancialForce full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I wanted to update my previous positive review to another positive review now that the honeymoon phase is over and being with FinancialForce over a year. Growing Pains, but the current Leadership Team is impressive and keeps me believing in what we are as a company working towards. Patches are in abundance, Quarterly Bonus a huge plus, protected accounts. There is an opportunity to make $$ with a great work life balance.

    Cons

    Need more internal career pathing/development. All outside hires.
