      Your references of empowerment and management seem to be at odds with the large majority of people at Iress. 90% of Iress people say they were given the autonomy to perform their role effectively. In terms of remuneration, we challenge our people to deliver results for our clients and users and reward them for contributing to our success. Thanks for your feedback.

      Pros

      Good people. Flexibility. LGBTIQ friendly.

      Cons

      Lowest paying fintech but you can guarantee you will be overworked to breaking point. People Leaders (managers) have their own agenda which is to please their superiors which means you're being tasked with a two-person workload. Better chance of winning a lottery than getting a much needed extra headcount in your team.

      CEO

      Thanks for taking the time to give feedback. I’m glad you rated your team lead, however your comments about our development practices don’t square with those of others in the team. Our CTO Andrew Todd has an ambitious technology agenda with many applications already transitioned to new ways of working and tooling.
