Doing well, but work environment is very bland. Aladdin/Technology side seems out of date.

Aladdin Product Group Intern (Current Employee) New York, NY

ProsGood pay for an internship.
Growing steadily. The Aladdin side is attracting many new customers.
Good place to just show up, sit for 8 hours and go home.
The teaching seminar about finance held on our first day was outstanding (The rest didn't teach me much)

ConsCrowded and noisy offices. You sit shoulder-to-shoulder on a single long desk.
Offices are very conservative looking to fit in with the finance culture.
High turnover rate on the technology side. The programmers that remain are not the passionate ones.
Everything is just hacked together. Hard to learn good programming here.
Full time pay is low for a software developer, especially in NY.

Advice to Senior ManagementPerhaps move the technology guys into a completely separate building or more attractive location. The finance culture is overbearing and prevents the technology side from being creative and energetic.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
