Great place to learn about the markets; autocratic leadership; best for straight out of college students

Sales Representative (Former Employee)
New York, NY

Pros- Great financial software products
- Steep learning curve
- Exposure to wide range of financial institutions
- Opportunities to interact with high ranking clients within the financial institutions

Cons- Job satisfaction is entirely dependent on your immediate team leader. Management is inconsistent resulting in great discrepancies in working arrangements and day to day work ethics.
- Very difficult environment for self-motivated, more senior individuals. Management can micro-manage to the point of absurdity.
- Exceptionally numbers-driven.
- Not the place for a self-motivated, experienced hire who wishes to think for him/herself, occasionally make his/her own decisions, conduct his/her day in a way he/she feels fit.
- Unfriendly sales floor - everyone is focussed on watching his/her own back.

Advice to Senior ManagementNone - the company is what it is, and will always operate in a particular way, regardless of the high employee turnover. Contrary to popular belief, there has been no significant change in management style over the past 12 years.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
