    I have been working at FinancialForce for less than a year

    Pros

    - Refreshing culture, full of energy, lovely office. - Lots of investment in employees in terms of training. - Great recruitment process. - Coming to work is always a joy, never a chore :)

    Cons

    The office is situated on the outskirts of Harrogate (a lovely place), however this means the closest train station is a 30 minute walk/additional 20 minute bus journey. There is free parking on site though.

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

    Pros

    Great Salary Unmatched work-life balance Great Office Great Team Mates - really committed intelligent people Solid Tech being on the SF platform Local leaderships doing a great job

    Cons

    Can feel a touch directionless at a global level - this has more to do with the distance issue than the actual companies direction. You really need to dig in here and get it done - those expecting an enterprise support model around them will feel lacking. We're a growing organisation that's still finding its feet regionally.

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

    Pros

    Camaraderie Flat management structure A feeling of worth Easy to connect and chat (And have a beer) with the CEO and any of the management team Your ideas count A disruptive tech company in hyper growth Seek forgiveness rather than permission Be accountable

    Cons

    Not a place to be if you need to be told what to do Not good if you want to corporate ladder - There isn't one Somewhat unstructured as there is a reliance on the individual to contribute

    I have been working at FinancialForce full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Let's put things into perspective. No company is perfect. FinancialForce is as close as it gets. Having been in the technology market for nearly 25 years now, I can confidently tell you FinancialForce offers a solid opportunity to grow in your career. It's a two-way street. What you put in, you get back in many ways. You are rewarded. Yes, from a monetary point of view. But equally as important with a culture, a work environment that genuinely cares about its people. Speak up, be creative and the company listens. The company cares. It’s different. Most company’s only care about the bottom line, not here. They care about you. Collaborative, fair, transparent and trustworthy; you can have a long term career at the company if you want to. Too many people expect too much too soon; again, it’s a two-way street. If you put in the work, you will be rewarded. Excellent support to expand and develop your skill set through hands on experience, formal education and the opportunity to move between departments. Next, the products. Product-wise, the company's solutions are in strong demand in the market. Independent analysts recognize the company’s leading position in the market. Sure there is lots of competition. So what, it's the same everywhere else. The company is successful because it looks beyond the technology and delivers value beyond technology. This is a critical differentiator.

    Cons

    FinancialForce is no different than others in the technology space. It has its growing pains. Sometimes the workload will cause burnout. Too many people are afraid of hard work and look for the easy road. There’s no easy road in life. So, when work hands us lemons, we make lemonade. It’s reality, it’s life in the tech space. So, what are you waiting for? Apply now!

    I have been working at FinancialForce full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    New C-team established over the past years. Huge market and growth opportunities for FF to be on the SF platform - with doled software and solutions for PSA and ERP. Impressed with how they dealt with COVID-19. Keeping everyone safe - and still focusing on the strategy and growing.

    Cons

    Some disconnects between top management, middle managers and ICs. Company vision/mission not fully understood and well communicated by/to everyone.

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

    Pros

    My favorite part of working at FF is the culture - The company's Diversity & Inclusion committee is phenomenal and have the support of the executives to discuss and educate people on topics like the BLM movement and the LGBTQ community which is far beyond what any other company is doing. The PSA product is amazing, we are 100% the leader in this space by a long shot.

    Cons

    There hasn't been a lot of clarity on what the exit strategy is nor is there any mention of what the plan is - my fear is that there isn't one. It looks like we are in a waiting game with Salesforce rather than gearing up for an IPO. If an IPO is not on the table, why not? What needs to be fixed or changed in order for us to get there? The lack of expectations and vigor to get there is what is missing here.

    Great culture, collaboration, transparency, and leadership team. New leaders are making a positive impact and the future has a great outlook. Every person has the opportunity to make a difference and be recognized.

    Cons

    Wearing many hats has pros and cons, but if you are someone who thrives in a dynamic environment, you will appreciate the personal and career growth that comes with it.
