    I have been working at Worldpay full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    It's been 1 year that I was hired as a junior Dev. in the Montreal office. You can read my other review to know how it was at the start, but T.L.D.R., it was very positive. It's still the case. I love this job, despite a few bumps. So the pros are still: free coffee, fruits, yogurt, etc. in the kitchen, friendly environment, casual clothing, family lunch provided each 2 weeks, occasional 5-7 at a nearby bar,... sports (soccer, basket ball) in the summer, I personally have a great team lead, and I love my team. We can sometimes work from home, we manage our own time, but it's frowned upon to just stay home forever. I understand that going to someone's desk is often necessary for clear and quick explanations, though.

    Cons

    With the company going public, many hierarchical changes occurred outside of our office. Now our local leaders respond to some UK managers, effectively short-cutting people's power. As a Dev, this was of no concern to me, but one of those UK manager tried to swap around projects, showing a very clear lack of understanding in our process. After a scare, a project halt, much proof provided, and the vehement pleading... of our boss to this UK manager, they came to their senses, but the fact that this is even possible now is scary. The consequence of this would have been pretty catastrophic, both for me, who would need a new job, and the company. It shows our local boss don't have a lot of power now (because he was very verbally against this). But it also shows that the boss care about us and our opinion. It's very reassuring. But it's a small shield against this turmoil. Indeed, I would have listed "job stability" as a PRO before, as it seems to be a huge value here. Most people here are here since forever. The age median is probably 37. I must be one if not THE only junior there. Which is both a pro and a Con. I first thought that there is a lot of career opportunities, but not really. It seem a pretty narrow list, and few people move (at first, when we were smaller, but the bigger we grow, the more fixed it becomes).

    Advice to Management

    Continue to listen to Engineers, as they understand far better the consequences and impacts of your decisions. As for UK's management, I dearly hope you can thin-up the management sphere, as it seems they bring a lot more harm than good (from my perspective). Power chain of command should be clear. Many people are complaining that they have a new UK manager for this and that, and now have to respond to 3-4 people,... often giving contradicting orders. I get you want to control where this branch is going, but you hired someone with a brain. Not an avatar that has to be remote-controlled, especially not by 3 conflicting peoples that are trying to decide who has the most power. Less management is good in our current situation. A good liaison with UK is great, but not as a controlling presence that dictates our every moves without understanding the details on the ground. It's redundant, non-efficient, and sometimes downright extremely dangerous.

    Pros

    Some great people to work with. Good benefits.

    Cons

    Difficult environment to work in. Management was mainly filled with non-professionals, inexperienced and unqualified. Rigid environment and not organized. Projects were not challenging and not broad enough (in tech, variety) to gain career growth.
