    Pros

    The view from the office

    Cons

    The company is broke so they'll nickel and dime you out of a decent salary, cut corners wherever they can, and the benefits are CRAP. No training, horrible managers that talk sh*t about each other and the company isn't transparent at all. BEWARE.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Blegh, they're all idiots.

    Pros

    The firm allows a good good work and life balance, Congenial atmosphere. Small team. The is 20 word minimum but really running out of good things to say about this firm

    Cons

    No growth. PM's are mostly a bunch of bozo's. Researchers who do most of the work are not given importance. Senior Management has no people skills. Most of the good talent has left the firm. Research team is really unmotivated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As a research oriented firm, promote researchers and not pm's. Take cues from more successful quant firms.

    Pros

    Can live a 7-3 lifestyle. Given there isn't much management, you can ultimately do what you want. Not really sure this is a pro, as long term, this will doom this company.

    Cons

    Clueless management. Almost a case study for book smart people and their inability to manage and lead. They don't have a lot of revenue. Budgets are tight, and if they aren't making money, you suffer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire new management. Do your job and leave the big decisions to people that can actually make decisions.

    Pros

    Small company about 30 people in the office. There are two different world, investment and operations. People will walk to the other person's desk to discuss issues. Close relationship between coworkers and many people stay with company for many years. Very good benefit and life work balance. Compensation is fair.

    Cons

    You won't get chance to move up, unless you are the favorite. A few favorites always get opportunities to learn new skill and attend training, but the rest are ignored. People stayed are out of options or have family concerns, not because of they like the job. If you want to move up, you need to look at somewhere else.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be open minded and be fair to everyone.

    Pros

    Breath taking Office View. Decent benefit package.

    Cons

    From experience& from talking to other employees, the company does not promote from within unless you are a "favorite" (so your hardwork is rarely recognized). An employee who had been there for 6+ years told me: "people who have wanted to move up, have done it by moving to a different company". Unfortunately favoritism/office politcs is a HUGE thing at this office & the tone is set by the top, who is also a micromanager of every department (or the office favorites will be on duty doing the micromanaging). Some top exec's also have a very bad demeaning attitude towards a lot of their employees. Again, the tone is set from the top down. Most people that work here can't wait for the weekends... and that speaks volumes. I've worked in various company cultures, but by far, this was the worst.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote your employees. And promote those employees on the basis of their job excellence, not on their ability to be office busy bodies. The other Management directors need to step up to the plate and actually manage & speak up for their teams, rather than let the office favorites boss them around. Due to this, there is also a huge communication problem in the company when it comes to upper management. There needs to be a clear line as to who the managers are & who the teams actually report to (do they report to the managers, or the office "favorites"?)... Good Luck!
