    I have been working at GlassRatner Advisory & Capital Group full-time

    Pros

    The firm is rapidly growing the range and diversity of its service offering and is committed to establishing itself as an elite full-service financial advisory firm. Exposure to senior management and the interaction from the very top of the organization to the most junior level employees is almost unmatched compared to other firms of its size and stature. The senior management team has the vision, drive, skill-set, intelligence and commitment necessary to achieve the goals it has set for the firm. Best of all, hard work is both recognized and rewarded. Although the firm has grown very quickly since its inception a decade ago, it is still a true meritocracy and bureaucratic policies are almost non-existent. I have worked for both the largest possible financial institution in the world and also for smaller boutique organizations and GlassRatner provides the best of both worlds. The leadership is as strong as any bulge bracket firm and hard work and ability do not go unnoticed. I would recommend GlassRatner to professionals at any stage of their career. It is an excellent place for junior professionals to learn a develop a dynamic skill-set to advance their career while also providing senior team members with the platform and resources necessary to excel.

    Cons

    The only cons will be remedied over time. The firm has its roots in the niche sectors of forensic accounting, restructuring and real estate services and has only recently committed significant resources to expanding the range and diversity of its service offering to include traditional financial advisory and investment banking services. As such, it will take time for the firm to establish its credibility and increase deal flow in these sectors. As a new entrant to the higher profile and more lucrative investment banking field, compensation will continue to lag behind peers in this sector for the time being. However, with that said, the senior management of the firm has demonstrated its commitment to building a true full service financial advisory firm and compensation will improve as deal flow increases. Experience and feedback from long-term employees provides evidence of generosity in pay packages as revenue and fee generation grows. Unlike many firms that attempt to grow very fast but then are forced to layoff employees en mass if deal flow does not keep pace with the increase in head count and average compensation, GlassRatner has taken an aggressive yet cautious approach to its growth strategy so that it can maintain what I would consider a "family atmosphere" and significantly diminish the possibility that it will be forced to make mass layoffs. There is nothing more detrimental to employee moral, productivity and firm culture than than a day-to-day fear of losing your job due to bureaucratic reasons that are completely unrelated to performance. I believe that senior management is acutely aware of this dynamic and places a high value on the culture it has worked so hard to create and has shown significant prudence during this expansion initiative in order to protect against this worst-case scenario. It is a rare occurrence that the most senior level employees show such empathy towards the rank and file and for this I applause them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The culture Management has created is perhaps the firms greatest asset. Not only am I confident that my managers will always recognize and appreciate my hard work, skill-set and ability, I know my achievements are also conveyed to the very top of the organization. As the firm grows, it is harder and harder for the most senior-level management to maintain this level of employee recognition and interaction but speaking only for myself, this feedback motivates me even more than compensation. Compensation is of course important but from a day-to-day perspective, the knowledge that I will be recognized by the top of the organization pushes me to perform at the peak of my capabilities every day.
