    Some more corporate politics in recent years.

    Current Employee - Client Associate  in  New York, NY
    Current Employee - Client Associate in New York, NY

    Pros

    Depending on group and manager there is flex time and the ability to sometimes work from home

    Cons

    Lack of mobillity and training for those employees who want to advance. At some times, Management's view appears to be if you don't like things, leave.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    (1) Provide more training such as mentor programs or basic training sessions for those who want to advance or transition into other areas. The lunch and learn is nice, but not realistic to help one advance or obtain real hands on experience. (2) 401k match needs to be better

    It's a stable and conservative firm but being small, not too many opportunities to move up

    Pros

    Communication from top is clear. Supportive management as long as we take the initiative. Benefits are competitive. People are helpful and knowledgeable

    Cons

    Firm is small so upward mobility is challenging. Benefits need to improve on the 401K match and annual pay increase. Stagnant for few years

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make 401K more competitive by matching a higher percent and dollar amount. Allocate more resources for employee training to improve skills and learn new technology.
