Think you know "fast paced?"

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) New York, NY

ProsFun extracurricular activities, if you have time to participate in them.
Flexible work arrangements
Good benefits
Great maternity leave
Great family sick time policy

ConsRidiculous performance evaluation process with a forced "performance curve/calibration process" whereby good performers end up with bad ratings to meet the "curve" and get stripped of bonuses and/or merit increases.
Incredibly fast paced culture. Constant fire drills due to poor planning. Always several competing projects at hand, and everyone expects immediate turnaround.
Inability to "unplug" from the job - unwritten rule that you are expected to respond immediately to after hours requests and emails.
Flexible work arrangements do not apply to all departments equally - it depends on who you work for.

– I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
