Current Employee - Senior Manager in Basildon, South East England, England
Current Employee - Senior Manager in Basildon, South East England, England

I have been working at IFDS full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Highly respected and forward thinking business, winning the lions share of its core market through thought leadership and innovation. Provides high quality customer service and IT solutions. This in turn provides excellent career opportunities, internal mobility is encouraged and greater international opportunities through more globalisation,. The next phase of growth is very exciting with major investment in two new market lines starting the bear fruit.

Cons

They work you hard! An outsourcing company works on tight margins and as such carries little fat. We all work with 100% effort and probably at 110% capacity all the time! If you want to coast or struggle to deliver to tight and pressured deadlines we are probably not the place for you.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Empower more and delegate decision making. You have some major talent coming through through the ranks, use it!

    I have been working at IFDS part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Teams are welcoming, very helpful
    Great organizational structure
    Pay for co-op was above minimum, while teaching you. Made for an experience I would go back to

    Cons

    Management seems stale
    Needs to have some changes at the top level, or hire more competent individuals

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn the direction of the company rather than applying basic managerial tactics.
    If something aint broke, dont fix it... Upper management seems to always want to change something for no reason

    I worked at IFDS full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The benefits are good and they match your RRSP contribution to 3.5%. The people there are fantastic to work around. Good career growth and the career growth potential are available.

    Cons

    Wanting to pursue a job outside your role can be difficult as it is hard finding people to back-fill existing roles. Salary is not that great.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try your best to keep and promote the talent you have.
