Project Manager (Current Employee) – San Francisco, CA – February 23, 2017
Solid department but operating committee leadership is flawed. Company not heading in right direction after being acquired. Great people and smart engineers. Calypso has a history of not treating its employees the best they could and have lost talent due to this issue. Great place to get into fintech though.
Sales (Former Employee) – New York, NY – August 30, 2016
- Low Morale - Dated Technology - Incompetent Managers across the board, specially in the sales organization (Global head of sales and Americas General Manager) - High turnover rate - H1A visa is the employment retention plan - They don't care about their client base
Marketing Communications Manager (Former Employee) – San Francisco, CA – September 25, 2013
This medium size financial services company has a strong product/solution offering and business model that not only survived the financial crisis, but excelled throughout. What interested me most was self-starter culture that was encouraged in those of us with intellectual curiosity. As a creative marketing professional, there was never a shortage of projects that I could work on or submit a business case to help grow the business. A sense of adding value to an organization is often more important than compensation. This was definitely true at Calypso.
Data Analysis Intern (Former Employee) – San Francisco, CA – November 10, 2014
My typical day would begin with checking my emails and figuring out the tasks I have for the day. I go and ask my supervisor for any additional tasks and ensure I finish it before I leave for home. My co-workers were extremely supportive and extremely intellectual. I did learn a lot about professional attitude from them. The hardest part of the job was handling large amount of data and being extremely careful with it. The most enjoyable part were the meetings, the brain-storming and the discussion that entailed.
