I worked at Crossix Solutions Inc.Pros
There's a level of excellence expected there in terms of work quality that I can fully appreciate now. One can get exposure to a lot of different things in a small company, which is good for personal growth, but you have to ask for it or get to the right level to get exposure to get it.
People individually are friendly. People are smart, especially the CEO.Cons
Honestly, I dreaded going to work there everyday. I realized soon after I started that it was not the right place for me, but overall this place can really mess up a generally happy person. I know for sure that some reviews on here were written in the past for the sole purpose of promoting the company, and to mask the negative reviews, which of course is despicable. Made me nauseous thinking about it, but not surprising that it would happen given the weird culture there. I think it is difficult for brand new analysts to see how negative the culture is, which I guess is good for them, bad for those who know better over time.
There is no regard for people's personal or work time, and people work long hours. It never had to be that way-almost all the senior people have poor time management skills and it affects work-life balance for everyone below them. And-it almost always happened due to poor planning, delayed meetings and general lack of care for the time of others. I can honestly say that for 98% of the time when I worked late, it was the senior person's fault due to reasons above.
Crossix has a yearly bonus which it splits in two installments over the following year, likely for the sole reason of keeping people around for the next bonus cycle. It's just a bad move-it gets people very upset and reinforces the little care the management gives towards the true happiness of workers. Also I came in with the expectations that bonuses would be spectacular. They were fine for good workers, but on par with a lot of other solid companies who don't do ridiculous things like hold bonuses hostage.
They need an HR function badly, and don't understand why they can't figure this out already. They are not good at people management, so get a function that can help with this!!
If you're a generally a positive, happy, dedicated person, and you find yourself at Crossix, my advice is to leave soon after getting some time on your resume. And, don't go at all if you're looking at an opportunity there...wait it out and find something else, unless you're desperate for a salary. This includes new analysts.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Get a real full time HR person- someone who knows what they're doing. It protects you anyway.
Senior managers need to start letting go of their egos and start managing their time better and get meetings done on time. It's not rocket science-despite what people may think. They need to stop the "drop everything to talk to the CEO" every single day. It is not good for business-his business-and they need to make him aware of the ramifications of doing that. Urgent stuff is one thing, but the conversation can usually wait an hour so that analysts can go back to work instead of waiting around for a meeting. Senior managers can be done with a meeting in the allotted time when they start on time, and should watch a clock doing it. That's what everyone else in the world does. Stop it already.
Stop splitting up those bonuses. Seriously, you need to figure out something else to keep people from leaving.
Start thinking about how to make your culture happier and workers more satisfied with good, long term solutions. All things above will help.Doesn't RecommendPositive OutlookApproves of CEO
