    Pretty good place with many obstacles

    Senior Analyst (Former Employee) New York, NY

    Pros- salary is pretty good but not much room for negotiation
    - on-site gym is amazing, nap-room for pregnant ladies is a great pro
    - mentorship available and taken seriously

    Cons- not much room to grow within company, internal mobility exists but it's much easier on parallel level and across departments may be hard
    - one doesn't get much constructive feedback on their ongoing performance (yes, there are formal reviews) - seems like ppl are afraid to speak their mind

    Advice to Senior Management- recognize and promote talent by actually listening to people of all levels not just your immediate reports
    - so much internal politics can be stifling to growth and retention

    Good exit opportunities within the company, however difficult to last long enough to take advantage of them.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Raleigh, NC

    ProsGood opportunities for internal mobility - after a year, you are able to move positions w/out needing a manager to sign off on it.

    ConsBad work life balance, pay should be better. Retention is a problem, in some areas management is not able to keep up with the amount of people leaving - they need reasons to stay. As a result, loyal employees are often bled dry & not given promotions quick enough.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake some risk on yourself - the name of the game is currently to slide risk down to the next level of employees.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
