    Pros

    Legitimately care about employees. Lots of people into health and fitness so classes and encouragements. Co-workers are good people. Senior management is approachable and supportive and it is a big plus to have a ton of autonomy.

    Cons

    Some administrative bottlenecks to get things (like travel) done. Projects can often change direction at the last minute.

    Advice to Management

    Career coaching, mentors and opportunities for growth either at the New York office or overseas are more meaningful than office parties, etc. Recognise and grow those who perform.
