    I worked at FNZ full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Free cereal. Most of the people at the firm are hard-working and trying their best under trying circumstances. These are skilled people for the most part, who just burned out to be told "Maybe FNZ isn't for you" or "We have a very unique culture"

    Cons

    The worst place I've worked in over a decade in financial services. HR posts fake reviews every time an honest review appears on this site - I don't know anybody who has ever worked for FNZ that would rate it a 5 star employer. Management are generally clueless and ended up in their jobs because everybody else left. No pay rises, no bonuses. Platforms that hardly ever work as intended. My team had over a dozen resignations in a year due to stress and overwork. Avoid if you can.

    I have been working at FNZ full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities to progress your career if you are willing to work hard. FNZ is truly fast paced, there are never enough hours in the day, but with that comes constant opportunities to learn. After 10 years with the company I'm still developing new skills. No two days are the same. The opportunities to progress, and variety of roles I have covered with FNZ would not have been available at any other company. You are recognised for hard work and what you put into the company, promotion is not dependent on length of service. Role is varied, challenging and very rewarding. You are trusted to manage your own workload on a daily basis. Everyone works together to get the job done, there is a good team spirit across all areas of the business. Flat structure where everyone is willing to input to the end goal regardless of their role.

    Cons

    As with all jobs, there are challenging days, but the sense of achievement when challenges are overcome outweighs this.

    I have been working at FNZ full-time

    Pros

    A culture that really allows people to grow, develop and challenge themselves. Everyone is accountable for their own performance, and rewards/recognition for high performance are evident. No unnecessary red tape or structure to work through - get things done quickly. A challenging environment, no two days will be the same. Great culture amongst teams, very hard working, but extremely supportive and no blame culture. An ideal place to challenge yourself, grow professionally and see the impact of your efforts on a daily basis, whilst being rewarded.

    Cons

    Could be seen as not for everyone due to the limited structures and fast pace.

    I have been working at FNZ full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Growth of the business and opportunity that never stops Fast paced and you are given responsibility early and expected to perform. There is flexibility to move to any department or team within FNZ and the opportunity for global travel and relocation. I am on my third country. The people, great colleagues and working atmosphere to get things done. Improving benefits package. Pension now inline with the market but significant bonuses are available and paid to those that deserve it. Equity offered to key staff which very recently paid a part share out. You will only be limited by your own ambition. FNZ is on a continuous growth trajectory and that brings with it a specific type of culture that requires hard work and equally some pressure and long hours but also many opportunities to develop professional skills much faster than other organisations Scotlands first unicorn Fintech organisation

    Cons

    Must manage your own work/life expectations. Delivery is a must with the customers and responsibility that FNZ has which adds pressure to peoples hours and deadlines. Long hours to meet deadlines on occasion, this is no different to most growth companies though The constant growth can feel a bit relentless

    Pros

    If you are independent, driven and in the development phase of your career then FNZ is a great place to work. Opportunities come up really frequently due to the wealth of new clients that are looking to come on board, meaning that we rely on hard-working, innovative thinkers that are committed to getting the job done.

    Cons

    If you want constant recognition this is not the place for you - it's a team environment with a mutual focus.

    "Exciting and Fast Paced Place to Work"

    I have been working at FNZ for more than 8 years

    Pros

    FNZ is genuinely an exciting place to work where nothing ever stands still. It's a fast growing company with an ever growing list of blue chip financial services companies as clients. In the time I have been at FNZ it has gone from being a small firm with offices in Edinburgh and Wellington to a much bigger organisation with offices and clients in 8 different countries round the globe. There are some really great, very smart people here to work with and a real can do attitude drives the company. There are great opportunities for hard working, driven people to get noticed and get on. The work is rewarding and the package is good to.

    Cons

    FNZ is not the place for someone who wants to turn up and do 9 to 5. The speed at which the company is growing means that a lot is demanded of people and, at times, that means extra hours. Growing companies always have challenges in how they adapt as they become bigger and operate across multiple locations. FNZ has had it's share of challenges but recognises when things aren't working well and isn't afraid to change to address those challenges.

    I have been working at FNZ

    Pros

    Great opportunity for personal development, career progression, exposure to senior execs and a fantastic blue-chip client base. If you are talented, hard-working, committed and enthusiastic then the there are fantastic opportunities to really progress your career and work with like minded people. If you are not of this persuasion and prefer a standard 9-5 with a familiar work pattern, then this is not for you. Really talented work-force. No real hierarchy and this is reflected in a relaxed, cooperative working environment.

    Cons

    Some of the execs are not needed and are carried by the talent within their teams. The continued growth can increase pressure at times but personally I enjoy the challenges this brings.
