    I worked at InterSystems full-time

    Pros

    product got good market.. as no compititer

    Cons

    Manager was too bossy and immature, He just can't trust the employee.. was keep on doubting and commenting on Racism... Keep checking hour to hour , as no trust. too much pressure and too strong, after having 15 years of experience in London, had shock at this place for 3 months. Left the job and never repented. they treat as slaves, not as employees. sucks

    Advice to Management

    check on managers who are people managers without product knowledge and show bossism. too racist the manager was, insulting for simple things and looking as if we r slaves. so left the job and complained on the manager's attitude.

    Pros

    Working with great people. Always challenging

    Cons

    Some middle managers need a rocket up them, they’re too risk averse and need to let their people off the lease.

    Advice to Management

    You hire great people, trust them to provide outstanding results.

    Negative Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I worked at InterSystems full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Benefits - pensions, health insurance + travel insurance very good, but the sign up and administration of them can be arduous Salary & incentive scheme - although this often benefits those higher up Colleagues - mostly welcoming and very collaborative CEO - very nice man, but I don't think he's fully aware of the level of current uncertainty and unhappiness at his UK offices!

    Cons

    No sense of hierarchy - no chance of progression or promotion, roles and responsibilities often do not accurately reflect what's on your job description Outdated working principles - no real gender or ethnic diversity particularly the higher up you go, old fashioned dress code, no flexible working, no work from home unless you're Tech/Product/Sales, based away from Eton, Windsor and Edinburgh, or a... director/manager that doesn't listen to HR. Compassionate, Maternity, Paternity, Sabbatical, Annual leave policies are poor and rigid in comparison to its competitors Using old technology - not keeping up with market trends US colleagues - constant interference and micromanagement HR are not the supportive vehicle that they lead you to believe they are - all lip service, very quick to dismiss colleagues and leave teams stretched Senior management does not listen to concerns of those on the ground, within offices Continues to recruit even though there are problems with the product, clients, senior management and the allocation of work and resources. It's unfair to new starters expecting what they were sold by Recruitment but get something completely different, and to existing employees who have to waste time getting lots of new hires up to scratch

    Advice to Management

    Review your policies and procedures - bring them in line with working practices in this decade Don't be so stuck in your ways and repeat mistakes of the past - listen to what ex-colleagues are telling you Review your HR and IT Support departments - they are not doing you any favours

    I have been working at InterSystems full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Fantastic technology backed by very knowledge people. Very strong customer focus which allows you to perform your job effectively, and feel like you are making a difference

    Cons

    Coming from a Microsoft shop previously, the lack of vast amounts of online knowledge about the products can seem limiting at first, but there is a very active small community which can help

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. The company has really gone from strength to strength in the years I have been working here

    I have been working at InterSystems

    Pros

    Excellent colleagues, interesting technology, constantly challenged by new problems and projects. Rapidly growing with an emphasis on customer satisfaction that is paramount

    Cons

    A very flat organisation, don't joint if you want to climb a management hierarchy. Emphasis on organic growth and little hierarchy means that there can be little opportunity to do other things.

    Advice to Management

    continue to encourage openness and free communication. Retain a cooperative collegiate way of working as that way good things can happen
