Pros – friendly firm with no backstabbing or snide remarks being made by others. Everyone is helpful and whilst it may not be the slick super machine everyone craves to work for it is a nice place to work. You are allowed to get involved in other areas and there is a real passion to promote from within. The management team seem to believe in the firm and want what is best for the firm and the staff - they actually seem to care.
Cons – There is definitely a true entrepreneurial feel to the place which also allows individuals to get involved in areas that they shouldn't do which can be annoying. There is a lack of structure and process but this is being addressed so a mini Con - yes the salaries are not the highest in the world but many people seem to compare the remuneration to the levels of IB's or hedge Funds who are out client - we service that industry not work for it so our remuneration is fair - albeit the lower end of fair.
Advice to Senior Management – Process will make things easier in the long run.
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
