Former Employee - Administrative Assistant

I worked at Creative Circle part-time for less than a year

Cons

Good pay good staff team

Current Employee - Associate

I have been working at InvestCloud full-time

Pros

None to mention, met a few nice people who share my opinion and made friends

Cons

Absolutely Crazy timelines, you are given unrealistic projects which have been pre defined by the sales teams and deadlines added with no delivery team opinion. Horrible change management! There... is a large dependency on a few “experts” to change anything or implement what is sold to the client. The so called “experts” have little to no financial knowledge or understanding of technical architecture. The least you would expect them to know if how their current product works which is also not the case for many of them. So the experts don’t really have an “expertise”. If one of them goes on vacation then nothing gets done until they get back because nobody is confident enough to make a decision. Very high dependency among executives. Executives are not really executives and they are made to work on projects. This creates a very unhealthy work environment full of pressure and basically prioritisation for the project that they work on. Project teams are not set up for success, there is no escalation process. Constantly under resourced because nobody sticks around to finish a job as they are burnt out. Long hours is an everyday thing and doesn’t work if you have a personal life Management is very bad at finding these core issues, even if a lot of the employees have already brought this up to them. There is no HR, no one to take your concerns to outside of your direct superior. This creates pressure and constant disappointment Sales and project teams have no co ordination, the product is sold to clients like it is some sort of plug and play which leads the client to have unrealistic expectations which are almost never met then leading to unhappy employees, management and clients. Primitive tech stack and product that is not scalable. Back end security is almost never followed and used properly and nobody really cares unless they fail a penetration test. Limited flexibility in product enhancements and lots of push back for any changes “not the Investcloud way”. New ideas aren’t encouraged, most back end calculations are incorrect and inadequate testing has led this to be in all sorts of production environments Back end testing is a joke, release management is a non existent team releasing every week which basically allows for 2 days of testing and bug fixing for things where there is no QA team. No impact analysis done, basically a small note is written that says no impact and merged. most employees are directly out of boot camps and mostly starting. Front end dev is limited and there is almost nothing you can do using the unusable excel tool. It does create screens fast but it’s advantages are far from being worth the limitations. This is the PWP program which is more of a WordPress for building out front end screens. Front end devs are freshers and try to learn this tool which is basically useless to their career outside of Investcloud Code reviews, spec reviews, implementation opinions. A lot of people have a lot of opinions on implementation most of which ends up being wrong. This is because of a lack of knowledge retaining since there is a very high turnover ratio There is people leaving every other day and some of them I know do good work. One of the reasons is always about the crazy hours. Product is limited, could be better if they introduce new ideas. Weekend work is constant to try and make your delivery timeline meet. You basically cannot take any holidays or sick leaves because there is no other resources. Product is either generally undersold to clients or the management is cheap which creates a very small budget for Project Managers and they are unable to manage the resources or afford any more people. The compensation and benefits are too low for the effort.
