      A company that values both client outcomes AND staff welfare. I'm VERY proud to work for Iress.

      Pros

      - simply a stunning response to the pandemic in terms of flexible support for staff and their families. Looking back, the support provided is (and continues to be) breathtaking - not only does the company provide significant support to staff and clients, but this year the creation of a coronavirus support hub available to the market was simply stunning evidencing the ethos flowing throughout the company. Very proud! -having targeted Iress as a company I wanted to work for back in 2015 my goals and desires have been exceeded, easily the best career decision I have made - Continuously investing in the product, but more importantly continuously seeking feedback direct from the users of our software to inform the associated roadmaps - Fast moving, sensible acquisitions, clear strategy, aligned goals, a great company to work for!

      Cons

      - Extremely fast moving in every aspect which does bring short term challenges BUT supports the right long term strategy (note also listed as a pro!)

      "having targeted Iress as a company I wanted to work for back in 2015 my goals and desires have been exceeded, easily the best career decision I have made" How's that! Says it all. Thanks for your feedback. I’m hugely proud of how we all responded together through the trials of 2020.

      Pros

      Good work environment Good culture Freedom to build stuff

      Cons

      No hikes and promotions No intentions of retaining existing employees Never talk about promotions or hikes, it's not a part of company's culture. You enter at a salary and remain at the same for almost the rest of your stay at the company

      Workplace technology second to none

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      - Workplace technology - GSuite, Slack, Zoom - Response to the pandemic - amazing support for staff and clients alike

      Cons

      Not really a 'con' - you need to be able to manage your time well as there's lots to do and it's easy to just carry on working, especially when you're at home.

      Great company with great people

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Most engineering teams are outcome-focused and agile. Alignment through all levels of Engineering right up to the leadership. Fairly flat structure. Modern office space. Great people to work with. Are able to move around the company easily. Very resilient - Iress has grown through the pandemic and been very supportive of their staff.

      Cons

      Career development from team leader and tech lead can be hard. Not much opportunity higher up. Wage isn't competitive with the market rate if you've been there a long time. As Iress has purchased other companies, these newer parts of the business are not forward-thinking, and there can be some politics in these areas. This problem becomes systemic through the systems built by these areas and can take a very long time to break down.

      Pros

      Friendly people Modern tech stack Approachable CEO

      Cons

      Don't go by job profile description during the interview. The culture in Iress is to have everyone do everything, so if you are passionate about something you might only get to spend 30% on it when working in a team. You are hired as a ( Tester, Frontend Engineer, Backend Engineer, DevOps Engineer, BA and Scrum Master) Frontend development culture isn't great. There is no much focus around it in Sydney office. Doesn't really understand UI/UX concept. Company is clueless about accessibility. Lacks specialised roles and doesn't promote one either. Hired for "Senior Frontend Engineer" role, assigned "Engineer" role and let work on everything. Good for those who wants to be a "Bit of this and a bit of that" engineer (Technology agnostic, since you will get your hands dirty on everything). Sounds exciting? Iress is for you, go for it otherwise I wouldn't recommend. No career growth, you can switch profiles, but roles are very minimal. Salary package is quite low compared to other companies.
