They promise a lot but regularly underdeliver towards their clients. Not enough resources to do a good job which translate into shameful delivery delays.Inability to recruit additional good team members to support delivery ambitions. Line management is very poor.There are some good and astute colleagues out there but this does not do it all.
small breakout area in the London building
Resource levels not aligned with corporate ambitions. Very poor line management
Overall, bad place to work. Too much work, not enough benefits. Way too much overtime. They never care about the actual needs of the company. Racist and rude atmosphere. Managers have no social skills. Favouritism and culture of the public shame and blame game. Micromanaging your time to the second and massive mistrust of the employees.
Free tea and coffee and cereal on Mondays
Long hours, culture of the blame game, public shame, bad atmosphere, bad management.
FNZ is a brilliant place to work, I feel very supported and can see how my career will develop here. There are plenty of learning and research opportunities for me at FNZ.Professional recruiting process, with great support and feedback provided throughout. This was very much appreciated!
Having recently joined from a larger FS organisation FNZ is much more fast paced. You are given a lot of autonomy and expected to come up with solutions. It is possible to have a much more significant impact here than many other firms. People here do need to be adaptable and resilient but it is rewarding with lots of opportunities
I have been part of the FNZ team for a few months now and my experience has been nothing but positive. The team are extremely collaborative, I have learnt so much in the first few months that I feel in good stead for future opportunities. Days can be challenging but through this I can see and have already observed career advancement for all employees. There is a great social aspect within the business and you are made to feel part of the team instantly. No two days are the same but that's the fun part! You are exposed to lots of new and exciting things, you blink and the day is over! I am excited to continue my journey at FNZ and would highly recommend this as a great placce to work, especially for those who want to advance their career.
Worked as an Investment Operations Officer, the teams all had nice people, including the managers, and everyone got on very well. Never had significant pressure to work over-time and work was not particularly stressful. Downside was that there was no plan in place for any kind of career progression or development. Salaries are low and there is an expectation that people will move on quickly, so little effort is made to retain staff.
No progression, low pay
FNZ is a fast paced environment packed with opportunity. You get to work with some of the most talented people in the financial services and technology space. This creates continuous opportunities to be challenged, evolve your knowledge and skills, and work with some of the largest financial institutions globally as FNZ customers. Its hard work at times, as is the case with all successful fast growth companies, but highly rewarding for those who seek to challenge themselves and progress their careers.
FNZ are incompetent disorganised, uncaring towards customers & staff, lacking IT systems, penny pinching & corner cutting, ruined excellent business, ruined peoples lives due to mismanagement of pensions, wouldn't listen to staff with years of experience. I have had to put 1 star in the "Overall Rating" box only to be able to complete this review, FNZ do not rate 1 star.
No IT systems, Too few staff for work load, Backward thinking, Incompetent, Mismanaged, No idea on pension administration and not prepared to listen to those with many years experience, Not trustworthy
Very very fast paced. Little to no procedure notes - you literally will learn on the spot or create your own notes. Good salary though - above market average. No bonuses so no real incentive to work that extra hard. WFH available which helps the work life balance.
Whether your a graduate looking for your first job, or an experienced operative I would NOT Recommend this place. The way the staff are treated by management, from top down is disgusting and shows a lack of understanding of the people they are supposed to manage. You will be exposed to a toxic atmosphere based on over selling of capacity, long hours and managers who will constantly talk down to you and undermine you.
The whole place
I've heard of hitting ground running but this was like hitting the ground after being thrown from a high speed train. The lack of support from management means you have to work everything out for yourself. There is minimal documentation and what there is written in One Note as engineers notes & short hand, not proper procedures & documentation. Oh and don't worry about your cv. Mine clearly mentioned I was experienced and certified in Office 365 but they only noticed 7 months later when i casually mentioned it in a conversation with the line manager.
I've worked at all the big financial firms and FNZ is the one with the least bureaucracy where you can make the most impact. Career & pay progression is encouraged and easy to achieve if you're willing to work for it. Great opportunities to travel - I've been to 5 countries in 2 years.
