  1. "Good Experience in Enterprise Software and AML Compliance"

    I worked at NICE Actimize full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Good experience with Actimize enterprise software deployment, AML compliance and business requirements
    - Chance to work on-site at top international banks
    - Opportunities for international travel to client sites
    - The Professional Services team is quite collaborative and knowledge sharing is encouraged through the organisation through tools such as Yammer and internal Wiki sites, as well as in the internal tracking system "Tracker"
    - Good benefits including free breakfast on Friday, gym contributions (Virgin Active), health insurance, 5% pension contributions

    Cons

    - Sometimes not much variation of work, I worked on AML deployments for the majority of my 6+ years. It would have been nice to work on other LOBs, such as Anti-Fraud, WLF etc. However, the AML solution was extensive and complex.
    - There was not much emphasis on quality and testing of the product, and too much emphasis on selling the product and getting it to the customer straight out of development, which lead to many uncomfortable defects being encountered at the client site, which more thorough product testing should have ironed out.
    - The developers were perhaps not trained or knowledgeable enough on the AML/compliance business to fully understand the requirements they were coding, and this often lead to defects on dev and test which would hopefully have not happened if the developers were more knowledgeable of the business area the company serves (AML/compliance)

    Advice to Management

    - Provide better business context training (AML/compliance) for R&D and PS
    - Enable employees a greater scope for personal development and training, perhaps more variety of training courses such as technical skills development, business skills development, management skills development.

    I have been working at NICE Actimize full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    A good portfolio of historically acquired clients makes for credibility in the market. Some good staff benefits on birthdays, casual Fridays etc and good offices.

    Cons

    New disruptive competitors have/are eroding the historical #1 position because the company has woefully underfunded product development and consequently has lost its position as thought leader. This is acutely so in EMEA where local legislative requirements have been ignored in favour of sorting US requirements.
    The sales controls and management of the NICE holding company (with different sales cycles and requirements) are being imposed down in to Actimize for the sake of global consistency, but it ignores the important differences and becomes managing the statistics rather than managing the sales cycle. The impact is that many staff in EMEA feel that our needs are not being listened to or catered for in a drive to get a NASDAQ price at all costs

    Advice to Management

    Listen to local management and don't write them off as whingers

    invest more in the people, try to read the market and invest in new cutting edge technology.

    Pros

    Great product. Fairly relaxed atmosphere. Nice place to work if you know what you're doing

    Cons

    Very little management oversight. Not a place for inexperienced professionals. Very little support for those involved in project delivery. Almost non-existent career progression framework. Too much in hock to clients, especially Tier One.

    Advice to Management

    Support those individuals involved in solutions delivery. Offer attractive training opportunities. Train managers. Ensure managers actually have people management skills. Stop using useles surverys to pretend everything is alright.

    Pros

    The company allows you to work in autonomy and trusts you to deliver

    Cons

    There is some initial direction given but you can feel like you're on your own with little help.
    There is also a sense that the product team, or many other areas of the company, support the PS projects once it's been sold

    Advice to Management

    When speaking to the customer speak with a company voice rather than have the R&D team try to throw PS under the bus
