Current Employee - Senior Manager in Basildon, South East England, England (UK)
Current Employee - Senior Manager in Basildon, South East England, England (UK)

I have been working at IFDS full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Highly respected and forward thinking business, winning the lions share of its core market through thought leadership and innovation. Provides high quality customer service and IT solutions. This in turn provides excellent career opportunities, internal mobility is encouraged and greater international opportunities through more globalisation,. The next phase of growth is very exciting with major investment in two new market lines starting the bear fruit.

Cons

They work you hard! An outsourcing company works on tight margins and as such carries little fat. We all work with 100% effort and probably at 110% capacity all the time! If you want to coast or struggle to deliver to tight and pressured deadlines we are probably not the place for you.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Empower more and delegate decision making. You have some major talent coming through through the ranks, use it!

    Pros

    using State Street name, nice building

    Cons

    Massive overtime 10-15 hours a day. No lunch, work weekends. Breaches the Organisation Working Act in many aspects (breaks/ weekly hours etc.) Enormous workload. No proper training. Ignorant managers, treat employees badly and in unequal manner. Issues to get holidays. Bad atmosphere, exhausted, constantly overstressed and tired employees. No work-life balance. if you thinking to apply, for your own sake, DON'T!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change the attitude. You are working with people, not robots!
