Bis Global Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
The Bank for International Settlements (BIS) is an international financial institution owned by central banks that "fosters international monetary and financial cooperation and serves as a bank for central banks".
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says"I worked at BIS Global full-time for less than a year Cons: The CEO is arrogant and discriminates employees. The atmosphere is horrible. Management loves to scream and humiliate. The typical small company where the CEO thinks that he is "Steve Jobs" with less than 20 employees and loves to look everybody below his shoulder. A complete crap."
says"I worked at BIS Global Cons: I hope to hear that you continue to focus on building a safe and open environment for your employees. Other staff that remain have told me you took some steps to make improvements. Please don't settle, and continue to foster that level of culture. It's not something to take likely, as you know from my previous review. I hope things don't revert back."
Director says"I worked at BIS Global for more than a year Cons: Not a very women friendly company, in my opinion. There is a very low ratio of men to woman, and all of the woman that worked there while I was employed, were either fired or quit on unfriendly terms, including myself. My pay was below industry standards for my position, according to Glassdoor salaries. I was promoted on the first day, but never given a raise to compensate for the added responsibilities. I was told there would be stock options, but never received any, even though I found out after I left, that other employees at my level (men) were given them. I was let go under false pretenses, accused of misconduct and denied unemployment benefits. It was only after I appealed, were the misconduct charged redacted. No hardworking, honest and dedicated employee should be subjected to unethical treatment, despite race, sexual orientation, and gender or other. I am sorry to say, but that was my personal experience and opinion. I had high hopes for this company, to help them achieve great things."
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says"I worked at BIS Global full-time for more than a year Cons: I have been in the non profit tech space for a long time and I can tell you there is no perfect place. Every organization has its pitfalls. My experience at BIS global was unique and too many emotions to express in this review. The software is certainly improving. This is a great idea and the company has hired great people but it seems that they do not know how to manage their people or manage themselves. After two years of service I saw a lot. Mistreatment of staff (sexist and bullying).When a staff member leaves the organization they are belittled and blamed for existing problems. This also correlated to clients.Client deployments are often not thoughtful in the sales process and hardly anything is in 'scope' ultimately setting the client services and implementation teams up for failure. Not every executive on staff exemplifies these behaviors but its widespread enough for concern."
says"I worked at BIS Global Cons: The executives were extremely difficult to work for. One was yelling in the office on almost a daily basis, and another constantly presented an attitude of being totally disinterested in anything anyone else had to say. Please don't be fooled by Leigh's efforts to respond to negative reviews, most of what he said is false, especially the part about employees being dismissed after given opportunities to improve. At least one employee received a positive performance review shortly before being terminated with absolutely no warning. Executives explored every avenue to cut costs at the expense of the staff, but never their own. I also witnessed clients being made fun of often, and former employees were vilified. Bonuses were promised and then never delivered. The executives drank in the office during work hours to the point where one would wonder about a serious drinking problem. There is no sense of work/life balance at all. You cannot be a sensitive person and be successful here. You will be yelled at, talked down to, and disrespected, especially if you are female and/or not white. The staff is diverse, but women and minorities are paid less compared to others in the same department and are pretty much only hired so the executives can claim how diverse the staff is."
says"I worked at BIS Global for more than a year Cons: - Unreasonable compensation: What they pay is far lower than the market rate and expect you to do a lot more. Low-ball you - Horrible work/life balance: Senior management mostly worked 6-7 days a week and somehow expected the same from their salaried employees. You were, informally, expected to work more than 40 hours a week regardless of your positions. - No policies and procedures: There was no reinforcement of the rules the company had established and some I would even consider as illegal. Won't go into details, but you don't have a HR department to file complaints to."
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says"I worked at BIS Global full-time Cons: This is the most detrimental environment one could possibly work in. What started as high hopes for the company quickly became problems in every area. Pay was often not on time, hours were unreasonable at best (illegal at worst), executive attitude is egomaniacal, policies are ageist and sexist, and growth opportunities (unless you're a close friend of an executive) are nonexistent. Every company like this has growing pains and struggles but this company openly encourages those struggles. Talking to an executive is like talking to a brick wall. Asking for help is admitting defeat and you can and will be mocked for it. Every so often, the president will announce that there are "only a few more months" until the company makes it big or things get better. This is laughable. The staff has been the same size for a while now and the money is not coming in. Nonprofit organizations do amazing things but the executives here wouldn't know that. They make fun of clients on a regular basis and encourage employees to do the same. The only culture you'll find at BIS Global is a hostile one. Pay is also horrendous. For every position they have available, you can find one at another company that pays better, has better people, and better benefits."
Current Employee - Customer Service says"I have been working at BIS Global full-time for more than a year Cons: If you are a lower level employee you will not be compensated well. Middle management and higher ups are very cheap and expect you to make miracles with little to no resources. CEO Philip Schmitz can be verbally abusive at times."
