    Pros

    Flat organization where you can make something happen if you are willing to push. Can be highly rewarded for your contributions.

    Cons

    If you are not someone's "pet" it is difficult to get things done. Everyone wants to challenge, sometimes people seem to think that they are rewarded for being obnoxious.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to open the organization to new ideas and new blood. People should not be in the same job for life.

    I worked at Bear Stearns

    Pros

    Great place to work. There was a family atmosphere among groups. There was loyalty to the company. Free transportation to the city.

    Cons

    No paper cliips, no rubber bands, no credit union. Bonus could be better. Promotions could come more often. No longer around

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management was ok but some of the managers forgot how they came managers and treatted others beneath like they were not worthy.
