Implementation Partner (Former Employee) –  New York StateJune 5, 2017
I Thoroughly enjoy working here. There is rarely a dull moment, and so many opportunities for personal growth. One thing to understand about Ipreo is that it is made up of about 30 products. Some of those are older, legacy products and some are more modern. They encompass technologies that range from Silverlight all the way to .Net Core running on Docker images and serving up single page JavaScript apps.

Certified Scrum Master (Current Employee) –  Raleigh, NCMay 16, 2017
Have always enjoyed my time here, including the work and the people you work with. But there is only so much you can enjoy if you feel you are falling behind with pay scale.

Ipreo is a good company, the environment is VERY distributed!
Scrum Master (Former Employee) –  Raleigh, NCMarch 30, 2017
I enjoyed working there, but all my teammates except 1 for one team and 2 for another team were located in different locations. I missed the team comradery! My typical day included reviewing where the team was at according to JIRA, then leading stand up for each team. I would lead refinement each day for the opposite teams, except Wed. After refinement I would follow up on any issues or items that came out of stand up and /or refinement. I would also follow up on any outstanding blockers or impediments. I reviewed and followed up on retro items that are in progress and focused on completing any outstanding program level items to implement such as the on-call schedule / process, JIRA migration preparation, etc. I also attended and led other weekly, bi-weekly, and monthly meetings such as Team Health, Scrum of Scrums, Planning, Retrospective, Demos, Scrum Master Guild, etc.
Pros
Scrum Master guild, Several other SMs and RTEs to work with
Cons
Most team members in another location, large timezone differences

Growing financial software company in downtown Raleigh
Manager (Current Employee) –  Raleigh, NCMarch 6, 2017
Although almost every major investment bank uses Ipreo software, I never heard of it before applying. This company is a leader in its business area and has been growing over the past couple of years as it attacks new opportunities. It's been a bit chaotic with new people and changing ways of doing things, but now seems more stable and organized.
A typical day at work includes several video conference calls with a distributed team. Office layout is an open desk area sitting with members of your team, but there are usually team members at other locations. Time zone differences can make for a long day for some people, especially since most releases are deployed after hours.
The financial software business is really exciting, but performance expectations are pretty high. I've seen a number of people leave who were just unable to deliver. It can be a challenge when you first join because they don't do a lot of orientation and training. You learn on the job.
They have a great downtown Raleigh location.
Pros
Exciting business, smart people, good product reputation
Cons
not always supportive, mediocre benefits, out of hours releases

Constant re-orgs and 24x7 work schedules
Director, Technology (Current Employee) –  Raleigh, NCDecember 6, 2016
Constant re-orgs and 24x7 work schedules cause serious morale problems for the mostly talented and very nice employees. The atmosphere tends to be somewhat oppressive and the expectation is you put your job before family.
Cons
Constant re-orgs and 24x7 work schedules

Consider other options if you have them
Lead Analyst (Current Employee) –  New York, NYNovember 20, 2016
Poor management, lack of commitment to retaining talent, incompetent immediate leadership, adequate work-life balance, private-equity owned so they count their pennies and expect employees to consistently increase their level of output while holding incentives constant that are minimal to begin with.

It's an interesting workplace
Senior Systems Engineer (Current Employee) –  New York, NYSeptember 13, 2016
- There is no typical day as each day presents a different challenge when it comes to keeping things functional and moving forward.

- A lot can be learned here if your level of patience is quite high.

- Management seems to always be in disarray.

- Co-workers are awesome!

- Hardest part of the job is not being listened to and/or simply not having a voice to those in power.

- The most enjoyable part of the job? I'm not entirely sure.
Pros
Friendly employees
Cons
No career advancement, training, lack of organization and prioritization.

Senior Technical Recruiter/HR (Former Employee) –  Raleigh, NCMarch 21, 2016
People are very nice. They do have a lot of work and managers
do not micro-manage you. They are not very organized and you come in and train yourself on the ATS system. Consultants are not made to feel as part of the team. I left a position earlier because they
needed me very badly. They cut my contract short and gave me a week notice.
Pros
very modern place
Cons
Was hired for a 10 month contract which was cut short after 5 weeks, .A a perm person was hired, The duration of the position was mis represented.

Productive and fun place to work
Summer Analyst (Former Employee) –  New York, NYOctober 6, 2015
The company is pretty tight knit at the 65 Broadway location. It is a one floor office with partial cubicles, which helps to build camaraderie among employees. Bi-weekly teams meetings and monthly floor meetings help to keep employees "in the loop" regarding Ipreo's overall business activity. This is helpful given the fact that it is still a private company and teams get a chance to receive feedback about their contributions to the firm.
Pros
Cafeteria, Employee camaraderie, Relaxed atmosphere
Cons
None

"Ok at Best"
REIT Analyst (Current Employee) –  New York, NYMay 28, 2015
Pros
-Good early/first experience in the business world as you work for investor relations officers at public companies. They're generally good people who appear to enjoy working with hungry, young individuals
-Although you aren't managing money, valuing stocks, or trading, you're still exposed to the market and can learn some things on your own
-20 paid vacation days plus 9 standard market holidays, decent 401k with 50% match of up to 6% of your savings
-Since all non-managers are more or less recent college grads, your peers are young, pleasant people
-Can be a reasonable gateway to the "real" Wall Street, grad school, or another finance-type job
-If you're lucky enough to have a decent manager, the experience is somewhat better. That's a crapshoot.

Cons
-Subjected to brutal company-wide town hall conference call where the now-ultra-rich and thereby wildly out-of-touch CEO says "ka-ching" every other word, and President's review of lofty company growth numbers (especially after the last two major private equity funds bought and flipped the company) leaves you scratching a deep hole into your head at your meager salary and raise

-Get ready to complete the same reports every day, week and month- this is what you'll spend the most time on and I can't emphasize it enough. Most of these reports revolve around dry topics like stock price performance or recent buyers/sellers of the stock. You'll soon become more adept than your manager at piecing together a mess of data in an application straight out of the early 90's to find these buyers and sellers. Despite some cases
  more... being totally impossible to pinpoint, you'll still be chided for not being on the ball. And God forbid you also have to run particular quarterly or annual report updates, which are all the longer and more boring

-You will be prodded to bombard your clients with emails and calls to the point where you are both annoyed
-If you're doing a good job, managers will turn to nit-pick at the smallest things, showing you they clearly miss the bigger picture of your overall good work. I think they always act like there is a problem to make sure you know why you aren't making much money. It's a great life motto to think that you can "always do better" but please stop acting like we should revolutionize investor relations with every report we send out

-Pressure to provide undefined, random insights via special reports, just to kill time and make yourself look half-intelligent to clients, even though the client doesn't care and you could already be at the bar spending your below-market paycheck
-By far more punishing of what is deemed to be bad behavior, than rewarding of the good

Advice to Management
Increase pay, not even by a ton, just make it fair for the Everyman. For a company insanely focused on growth, you should want employees to stick with you for several years and not be so eager to move on. So is the business model...

Or just stay the same with everything so we have the rest of our careers to look forward to.
