    I worked at Archon Group full-time

    Pros

    Working at Archon Group was like working with a family. Not every working relationship was perfect but you felt like everyone was working toward the same goals.

    Cons

    Change was constant. If you didn't thrive in an ever-changing environment (and most don't) then it could be a challenge trying to adapt at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Great job! Keep it up!

    Too big - large disconnect sometimes in communication between departments. Hard to grow within company because of this.

    went from small mom and pop shop into a more organized company. Goldman Sachs made sure of that.

    I have been working at Archon Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Technology, there are different options and always a scope to expand our skill set. People, they are friendly, welcoming and make you feel as if you are working with them for a long time. Management, they maintain good relations. Cross department interaction is more. Traning opportuniities are plenty and you get to participate in lot of networking and team building activities. You end up looking forward for the next day..

    Cons

    Micromanagement of the team, and less opportunites to grow under Archon Belt. Bonus and performance are not correlated.Though the training opportunities are plenty, many are not aware.

    Pros

    Great name, Goldman sachs. Great Benefits

    Cons

    They say that they reward loyalties of employees who stay with them, but you find out that your peers who just started with the company are making "market" and that usually means more than what you are making.
