    I have been working at HedgeServ full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Relaxed and casual atmosphere. Excellent training and career prospects. I find management very approachable and helpful. The location of the office of the office in St Stephens green is excellent. I really enjoy how active the sports and social committee are when it comes to participating in events and getting people involved. A big step above my previous employer and couldn't be happier. Excellent benefits also.

    Cons

    Busy periods during month end. But that comes with the territory. Overall a great place to work in my opinion.

    Pros

    Good benefits
    Focus on training and developing staff with an A-Z knowledge. Plenty of career opps.
    Opportunities to work in other offices - (USA & Europe)
    Friendly relaxed work environment
    Good sports & social

    Cons

    Like other companies in this sector, there can be busy periods e.g. month end, audit season and this is managed as best as possible by team manager.

    "Director"

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Cork (Ireland)
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Cork (Ireland)

    I have been working at HedgeServ full-time

    Pros

    Interacting with intelligent qualified colleagues in a dynamic workplace.
    Excellent technology in terms of meeting client needs.
    Young, casual & friendly office atmosphere.
    Promotion opportunities are available if you show aptitude.

    Cons

    Depending on your team, you most likely will have to work overtime for a few days at month end.
    Nature of the job is that sometimes you need to go above and beyond to satisfy client needs rather than being able to push back on requests.

    Advice to Management

    More transparency around the decision making process would result in a better understanding of why certain actions are required which in turn would lead to a better energised workplace

    I have been working at HedgeServ full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The office has experienced excellent growth in the last year. We have expanded onto a second floor of the building and are pushing 150+ staff which is fantastic. Staff that have joined us from the start have been rewarded with a very competitive remuneration package at year-end and there has been a high percentage of promotions across the various groups.

    Cons

    Krakow has a very competitive market place when it comes to recruitment and we must continue to focus our efforts in attracting the best recruits available.

    Advice to Management

    Great atmosphere in the office. Lets focus on maintaining this.

    I have been working at HedgeServ full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    There are several positives about working in Hedgeserv. There is an informal, casual atmosphere, everyone is approachable. People who work hard can quickly progress their career. There is exposure to all aspects of the NAV process from reconciliations to audit. Study support & exam leave. Comprehensive training. Active sports & social scene. Generous benefits package which compares favourably to other companies in the sector.

    Cons

    There are times when extra hours are required (month end, audit season) but this is true of all companies in this space, not unique to Hedgeserv.

    Advice to Management

    Communication could be improved from top down!

    I have been working at HedgeServ full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Professional organisation full of great people and great technology. Wealth of opportunities to progress across multiple locations. Active sports and social club. For those in the early stages of their career it may be useful to note that unlike other service providers, HSV's Fund Accounting teams are not functionalised so you will see all aspects of the NAV process.

    Cons

    You may need to work Irish bank holidays but will receive 1.5 days in lieu.

    I have been working at HedgeServ full-time

    Pros

    Excellent systems, highly client focused approach to Fund Accounting. Great career progression for those willing to work hard. Multiple locations and opportunities to relocate to offices around the world. Fast paced and interesting work where there is always something new to learn.

    Cons

    Working day can be long, especially during Q1 for year end and generally the start of each month for month end. Standard enough for financial services.

    Advice to Management

    Improve communication from the top down

    I worked at HedgeServ full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Domestic team were a great bunch of guys to work for.

    Cons

    They will work you till you can't work anymore literally. Senior management doesn't care about you at all.

    Advice to Management

    Actually care about your employees, I doubt you'll listen though.
