offered realxed beverages once a month
Customer Service Representative I (Former Employee) –  Scottsdale, AZJuly 17, 2018
Inbound calls that were constantly monitored daily for time & customer service. Management would monitor lunches and breaks very closely. They would offer alcohol beverages once a month and company picnics and get togethers.

Exciting environment
Senior Director, Sales Operations & Enablement (Former Employee) –  Scottsdale, AZJune 19, 2018
With the advent of Zelle, Early Warning has changed the landscape of how money moves. This company has some of the smartest hard working people inside and that is driving the culture of change in the financial services field.
Pros
Challenging, exciting environment.
Cons
Needs a broader product set, long term.

Don't work Fraud Operations
Fraud Operations Analyst (Current Employee) –  Tempe, AZJune 8, 2018
This company has zero structure or organization. The Fraud operations department was put together by leaders who have zero humility. They micromanage you and don't listen to any input you have to give. I would never recommend this company to anyone.
Pros
They overpay you.
Cons
Everything

It was a decent place
Windows Systems Administrator (Former Employee) –  Scottsdale, AZFebruary 27, 2018
I learned a lot while I was there and worked with some really great people. Some of the projects we worked on were pretty exciting. A lot of after hours work though which you get burned out on.

Expanding with financially stable condition
Data Scientist (III) (Former Employee) –  Scottsdale, AZFebruary 9, 2018
Even though I worked about 10 years in Early Warning Services, and overall I enjoyed working there along with some reservations, had learned a lot, upper management made decisions to dismiss multiple position at a time citing company strategic changes, nothing with performance I consider was rude, unfair, and uncalled for. This has been a culture in Early Warning that I have seen in my tenure and at the end I was caught in the culture. Lots of employees are openly engaged in politically charged conversations and sometime judge peers who are not thinking like them.

Early Warning tries to have a fun and productive culture
Technical Specialist (Current Employee) –  Scottsdale, AZDecember 23, 2017
Early Warning is growing… it’s nearly doubled in the past two years. That will continue with the launch of the Zelle Network, related opportunities and the consistent support of existing products related to financial industry security.

There are opportunities to help with committees to grow the culture... social, community outreach and professional development. Fresh fruit on Wednesdays, a Concierge and Third Thursday Happy Hours.

Health insurance is great. There is a wellness program where you can earn a cut on the cost of your health insurance by being, well, healthy! PTO is good.

There is a crying need to step up the technical expertise all around and the number of fresh, new hires is helping on that front.

There is a lot of opportunity to be creative and implement new approaches, if you are driven to socialize your ideas. There are lots and lots of opportunities to try new approaches and streamline existing processes. Because of the recent growth, HR is really swamped and lots of people are new with fresh ideas. Hang in there and be persistent to snag a spot in this growing company.
Pros
Pays attention to the culture, nice mix of hard work and fun, exciting to be part of the Zelle Network launch, relaxed work environment, work at home some, all hands meetings are generally informative
Cons
none

A management-first culture slightly redeemed by great peers
Security Employee (Current Employee) –  Scottsdale, AZDecember 12, 2017
In general, management is taken care of much better than employees. There is definitely cronyism that occurs in my department, leaving up and coming employees no room to grow and essentially forced to leave. However, it is also a friendly place to work with an excellent security posture. In my opinion, the success of the company rides solely on Zelle at this point.
Pros
No micromanagement, strong on security
Cons
Lack of concern for employee well-being

Disappointing
Crew Member (Former Employee) –  Scottsdale, AZAugust 11, 2017
Culture is such that:
Policy is first,
Personal agendas are next, and
People are last.
People are not valued there.
Communication is poor.
Leadership is nearly non-existent.

Consider This Your Early Warning!
technical business analyst (Former Employee) –  Scottsdale, AZDecember 5, 2015
Its such poetic irony that a company that prides itself on security is full of insecure people! I have never witnessed an environment full of people who are so condensending,rude, and passive aggressive to each other in meetings designed to complete technical initiatives. I have never worked at a company that promotes keeping your mouth shut and not speaking up when there are clean inefficiencies with processes and procedure.

When you apply for a position, you expect that the role and responsibilities are fully identified and you are going into an established situation. What you don't expect is enter a warzone where people are against implementing Agile philosophies into their work streams simply because they are content with being old fashion. What you don't expect is for your manager to

If you are young and come from an Agile company RUN AWAY AS FAST AS HUMANLY POSSIBLE! They will act like they like your energy but secretly conspire to get you out due to their insecurities (and prejudices). People are moved around to different teams so much, there isn't a chance to improve team vvelocity. When a delivery team purposely skips demos only to have the end users complain about the product delivered, causing piles and piles of technical debt, you know you are working in a dysfunctional IT department.

I predict that soon there will be a max exdous in that company when Executive finally put their heads in the weeds and see how poorly their business is being ran. Its truely a shame too because they have really nice products and do a great job with bank security.
Pros
Fresh Fruit on Mondays, daily food trucks on site.
Cons
Passive aggressive people, smile in your face stab you behind your back culture, don't appreciate young energy or fresh perspective, will throw you under the bus to protect their job if they feel threatened, high stress big pressure environment

Worthy Products, long hours to support
Director of Customer Implementations and Support (Former Employee) –  Scottsdale, AZNovember 19, 2015
Worthy Products help fight fraud in the banking industry. Work was demanding and long hours to support. Drive to work was exhausting though with long times to drive there and particularly attempting to drive home after working 10 hours.
Pros
free fruit every Monday
Cons
Long hours and stressful

would be a great place to work if not for the excessively high turnover. Frown at a manager or fail to kiss up and you are gone.
Physical Security Officer (Former Employee) –  Scottsdale, AZJune 15, 2015
Worked in Security for over a year watching people head out the door for greener pastures wondering when it will be my turn. Employees with years of service, gone in an instant. No job security. Stay quiet, lay low, don't worry about being a good worker, just kiss up and do not disagree with management.
Pros
Free Coffee
Cons
No job security even if you work hard.
