Roller Coster Ride

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Bear Stearns

ProsPromotes self initiative and outside the box thinking, which often times meant what connections you had to move ahead. Very entrapreneurial.

Constoo narcissistic for many people - Not so much what effort you put in but whether you're in a "sweet spot" regarding product in order to be successful. Upper management too concerned about tee-off times then how to move the business forward with integrity

Advice to Senior ManagementBone up on public relations and learn how to manage downward to the people who report to you, not upward to people who don't follow through on providing resources

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
