      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!)

      Underpaid. Overworked.

      Pros

      Good people. Flexibility. LGBTIQ friendly.

      Cons

      Lowest paying fintech but you can guarantee you will be overworked to breaking point. People Leaders (managers) have their own agenda which is to please their superiors which means you're being tasked with a two-person workload. Better chance of winning a lottery than getting a much needed extra headcount in your team.

      Pros

      Work life balance Great people Good systems

      Cons

      I have had no pay increase with CPI or bonus for the last six years. Pay increase is when you move to a Senior role otherwise Base Salary does not increase by one cent. Performance isn't rewarded with bonus. There is a profit sharing where $500 is paid and that doesn't even cover CPI increase. The company offer you to buy their shares also call the annual Equity Offer. When you pay for the shares out of your own pocket I would not call this a "bonus". It's ludicrous. The managers can meet targets and their pay checks get fatter. There is a Bonus Performance scheme for Product Owner or Manager and up where once you are in you have to keep it confidential. For the rest of the workforce the only cash bonus is the measly $500 profit sharing the last few years and offer to buy Iress shares. CEO is so far removed from the little company he wants to nurture. Many have resigned this year alone and key people causing a lot of distress to clients' solutions. I have been offered 50 percent increase of my salary after leaving. It shows how far behind the market Iress is. Walshy, you have great people but you are so far removed from rewarding them what they deserve.
