100% of the CEO
Pros – Get to see a lot of data in financial reports from well known firms
Cons – Unpaid, very little human interaction
Advice to Senior Management – Keep it up
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
Pros – The team is relatively small. So, I was able to access VPs and other higher members. The ping pong game is a great escape from the work during lunch and provides entertainment as well as interaction among co-workers.
Cons – There is a very small chance to grow within the company. The workload is very heavy at times and managers just want to get jobs done. They can be pretty ruthless with the amount of work. People have almost no interaction during work and the open office concept makes it pretty gloomy environment.
Advice to Senior Management – Try to be creative on how to import talents to the company and provide them the task according to their calibre.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
Pros – Decent health benefits - nice view from the office if you have a chance to look up from your computer.
Cons – There's nowhere to move up - particularly if you're female.
Pros – Burgiss is what you would expect out of any other technology solution companies of its size. Work-life balance is great, the atmosphere is generally relaxed, pressure is low and people are friendly. This will be a great job if you are coming fresh out of college and you didn't graduate from a top tier university. Work quality is decent, although repetitive, and you will set your career off with some nice set of marketable skills. I came into the company a little less than a year ago and I already know a lot more than when I first started. Decent benefits also can't go unmentioned.
Cons – This great list of pros will come with some major downsides as well. You simply do not come into Burgiss as an analyst and expect to exceed the 38-44k starting range. The faster you understand that you will not be making much progress from there, the easier time you will have during your annual review. This is not a MNC and you will not be promoted or given raises like one. Opportunity for growth is non-existent, but none of these should really be anything out of your expectations coming into the company. You either come in with the right expectations or you don't. This is not a career but a decent job out of college, and the management does not expect you here or pay for your services for the long term.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
Pros – There are a handful of decent people that you will meet at various levels, however most are awful.
Cons – Given its a small company, there used to be more flexible policies allowing employees to work from home when necessary. This was especially helpful since most are extremely underpaid and can't afford to have someone else take care of things when something goes wrong on the home front such as repairs or childcare issues. Things changed and it seems as though management unilaterally decided to run the place like a factory - even more so than in the past - addressing most the staff as "data monkeys." Why not outsource overseas? It would surprise me if this is now the case... overall an unorganized place where management makes decisions wearing blinders and hard-working staff is blamed for everything. Management also lies about revenue in a continuous effort to prevent bonus distributions to employees.
Advice to Senior Management – You are not that smart so consider paying for high quality employees and do not take advantage of the loyal ones that you actually have on payroll
