    Pros

    Good work/life balance. Unlimited coffee/tea/milk. Mostly people in their 20s. This place can offer you something to put on your resume while you're fresh out of college.

    Cons

    High turnover rate, underpaid compared to competitors, and limited mobility. They have a tendency of hiring outsiders for a vacant position instead of promoting internally. Senior management is aware of these issues but aren't doing anything about it.

    Advice to Management

    Execute a plan on fixing the major issues listed above. It's also time to update some of your software to 2015 standards.

    Pros

    Engineers will learn a lot in a short period of time. You can put some good stuff on your resume. A few really great talents with intelligence on the middle and lower levels of the corporate structure. Working in the city can be fun (for a while).

    Cons

    During the time I worked in the NY office, the management was abominable. The work environment was miserable. The culture was super depressing. Basically, the environment is If you are a manager you can talk and laugh and have a grand old time. If you are not a manager you can only work work work. No leaving your desk during work hours. No talking. No laughing. Absolutely NO FUN is allowed! Just production. Cameras set up everywhere watching your every move. No telecommuting is allowed. In an era of VPN this is particularly ridiculous considering that most people spend over 3 hours traveling to and from the city every day when they could simply roll out of bed at home, open their laptops, and do the same exact thing. There is no common sense ever used by management, only to attempt get production out of their workers (which only backfires because they are so clumsy in their methods). In fact senior management will actually berate you and try and make you look silly/crazy in front of a floor of workers if you request leaving early during a snow storm so you can get home to your family safely. This was during a STATE OF EMERGENCY! I could go on for days on how bad the management is in NY, it is that awful. Which is a shame because if you remove them from the equation completely, its not a bad job. They just cause so much unnecessary stress and misery, it eventually becomes not worth it to stay.

    Advice to Management

    The only way to fix this mess is to remove the senior management completely and start fresh with smart, passionate, creative, and YOUNG new faces.

    Pros

    I worked in the M&A Research department as a research assistant. - great team over all - good way to learn M&A basics; literally basics.

    Cons

    Horrible management. - Thought I had experienced some horrible leadership in the military, but to experience such two-faced management was very new. - Very judgmental "leaders" - Important to act like you're a lifer. Actions mean nothing in terms of progression. - Some departments can be very cliquish

    Advice to Management

    Do not ask your employees what can be done better if you do not really want to know. You know who you are lady.
