    Pros

    - Fun/smart peers at the analyst/associate level - Your communication skills will improve due to the amount of time you spend speaking/emailing

    Cons

    - CEO is horribly inappropriate – makes sexist jokes in public, belittles employees in meetings, and openly says he doesn’t care about employees or their work-life balance (expects 80 hours a week from employees) - The analyst/associate role is ENTIRELY project management. There is very little actual coding, analysis, or model-building involved. The analysis portion of the job is handled offshore and the analysts in the US are just messengers between the client and the offshore team, sort of like middle managers - You are completely dependent on your offshore team. If they are mostly straight out of college (which they most likely will be because of very high attrition), you will spend a lot of time just trying to people manage them and reviewing their work - Terrible hours: There are offshore calls every day between 9pm and midnight/1am. You will be expected to be in the office the next day at 8am regardless. You will be chronically sleep-deprived - Middle managers are generally bad. They’re overworked and underprepared to manage people, and provide little to no support. Their involvement will be to dump work on you and check on whether it’s being done. They don’t care/can't afford to care about your development or quality of work - Terrible pay. Fixed salary for 3 years, and it’s far, far below market average - Cult mentality. The CEO decides what the “company beliefs” are, and hours are spent every week by the senior management on trying to inculcate those “beliefs” into employee’s minds - No sick leave

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees better. Pay better. Provide better quality of work.
