Nice place to start a career, but you'll go nowhere fast
Software Engineer (Former Employee), New York, NYAugust 1, 2012
Pros: they'll hire you so you get your foot in the door of a financial company and some work experience.
Cons: horrible pay. apathetic management - some of the accountants/operations teams are not the sharpest.
This company doesn't pay it's employees. They hire smart people who have a higher market value and lowball them.

Annual raises for new hires are 3% (i.e. not a raise in Real terms)

My coworkers and superiors were professional and knowledgeable.
Software Developer (Former Employee), Harrison, NYMay 25, 2012
Pros: knowledgeable co-workers and superiors, worked on large software systems with real impact.
Cons: poor financial compensation, poor job security.
My coworkers and superiors were professional and knowledgeable.

The company expected a solid day's work and sometimes expected the programmers to work on weekends to finish tight deadlines. They were vocally appreciative of the additional resource commitment but did not show their appreciation in terms of financial bonus, vacation time or job security. After I left I found out that they had laid off nearly the dozen workers they had recently hired, just before my departure, to outsource their software development department.

GlobeOp was not a negative experience. I understood what to expect from the company in terms of job security and compensation after a couple of months there.
