      Pros

      CW offers you great training and resources so you can do your job effectively, whilst supporting you. Great platform, awesome company culture, ongoing training, constant webinars/ events, development resources and clear career progression paths. Also, the onboarding process went really smoothly despite it being fully remotely.

      Cons

      Not any that I can think of.

      Would not recommend to exp hire

      Jul 17, 2021 - Service Delivery Manager in Edinburgh, Scotland, Scotland

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      There is a degree of flexibility as long as you get your work done. However, once you’ve been at the company for a period of time you’ll be working 50 hour weeks. So the flexibility that they give, say finishing at 4pm to play cricket, is eroded by the lack of work life balance. It is a good place to learn about financial products and the financial services industry. Joining as an experienced hire provides limited development opportunities but the opportunities for grads appear to be quite good. Causal clothing to be worn in office.

      Cons

      Employees are not engaged. This global company is far too Boise centric. Pay and benefits are poor. They do not pay a bonus for staff at Analyst or SDM level regardless of performance. Leadership team do not listen to concerns of staff. I joined thinking this would be a fun fintech, but it is just another profit making machine. During the pandemic the company won a lot of work, had a freeze on hiring and did not look after its staff. 6 months into the pandemic they gave employees £350 for home office equipment. Social scene when we were in the office was minimal, with1-2 events a year. The attempt at engaging with staff in the pandemic was non existent and many experienced wellbeing issues. A significant number of good people have left the UK office during 2021 and this does not bode well for those left or for who can teach the new hires.

      Quickly Declining Atmosphere

      Pros

      Clearwater used to be a really fun place to work 3-5 years ago. The teams were very knowledgeable and there were opportunities to move around in the company. Higher management seemed to care enough about the employees and people could excel in what their skill set was. The pay was never that great, but the culture was much different than what we see today and people would leave on fairly positive notes. It is fun to be a part of large well known clients, and you do get opportunities to talk with important figures at a lot of different public companies.

      Cons

      The executives only care about profitably now. You will be over worked and the only reward you will get is an inflation raise and a new job “promotion” that does not come with a raise. You will constantly be asked to take on more work even though the amount of work operations has is not sustainable in the first place. On top of that, sales has extremely lofty goals, so operations will have to take on more complex clients. The amount of people that are joining Clearwater is no where near enough to amount for the experienced people that have been leaving for higher paying and less stressful jobs.

      If you are fresh out of college looking for a fast pace environment in the financial field, Clearwater may be just what you are looking for.

      Use your vacation before you leave!

      Pros

      Great people to work with on a team level. Good product that will continue to be successful on the market.

      Cons

      Understaffed and underpaid. Leadership's response to this situation was to give everyone cookies. (not kidding) Also, when you leave, your vacation is not paid out, it's just gone. So, if you plan to leave, use up those hours first!

      Great Place to Learn if you like Data

      Mar 8, 2021 - Software Engineer in Noida

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Great exposure to Google Cloud - Both in terms of Development in Cloud, Developing infra, Deployment and migration. Folks are learning to migrate apps to cloud from scratch. Opportunities to learn in Data Engineering are immense. Company has massive data and if one is interested there is so much to learn on data - designing pipelines, processing, streaming, storage, logging etc. Company follows top notch standards in Software Engineering. Developers have all the choice in the world to decide on tech stack for new projects. New ideas are always welcome. Access to learning portals like udemy, Cloud Guru etc for free. Salaries given to folks that have joined Clearwater in last two years were among the best in industry. And hikes were much more than decent given the circumstances due to Covid. Health insurance is great. Gotten better so as to speak. Perks are great. HR's are approachable. Parents were included in health insurance because folks in India demanded it. Clearwater will offer you challenges in Software Engineering and Data Engineering if you are upto it. It is definitely not the place for you if you like things to be presented to you in plate and then spoon fed.

      Cons

      Some policies are a work in progress. Leave policy could be better.
