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

    Pros

    Some genuinely lovely colleagues in London. The only reason many stick around

    Cons

    High handed, supremely arrogant, inept senior French management with no idea of how to address the current market in this space. Duplicitous in regards to commission and remuneration. Promises made and always broken. Highly dubious HR policies which frequently flout UK employment law. Legacy, unsaleable products hamstrung by chronically outdated technology stack and look and feel. No clear plan to resolve- merry go... round of big projects which never achieve anything. Lights kept on by revenue from a few large legacy clients. New business is essentially dead and buried. Zero awareness of brand in the market, lunch is being comprehensively eaten by newer more agile players.

    Advice to Management

    If the company is to survive, get some proper senior management in with horizons beyond the current Paris chumocracy, who know how to run a fintech in the current market. Selling the company is unfortunately not an option as suitors would be thin on the ground.

    I have been working at Linedata full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    A great bunch of people to work with but the number of UK employees is reducing. They have no problem with home working.

    Cons

    Leavers are not replaced and the workload is passed onto the remaining staff. Every decision has to be passed through Paris and only results in cost cutting

    Advice to Management

    Pay your staff the going rate and try to retain staff harder. Listen to your staff who work at the coalface. Paris have no interest in growing and improving the existing business, they'd rather buy new companies, which are never truly integrated into the business.

    Pros

    Ex BFT employees are a great bunch of people to work with, the product is very versatile for small to medium sizes hedge funds.

    Cons

    Lack of corporate strategy and clear vision, company grew chaotically through acquisitions, resulting in a range of silo products that could not be easily integrated.

    I worked at Linedata

    Pros

    Great people on the ground, highly skilled, family friendly & energetic employees. Good products. Good atmosphere in most offices.

    Cons

    Senior management in Paris out of touch and old style for a fintech company, insisting on everyone wearing a tie when the CEO tours the international offices.... No care whatsoever for employees, micromanaging every piece of the business, killing all the initiatives from the business lines.

    Advice to Management

    Delegate and trust.
