Pros

Experience with the Bloomberg Terminal and Free food. Great co-workers.

Hard to be noticed. Contract assignment very rarely turns into a full-time position.

Advice to Management

Show some appreciation to temp workers and take the time to share your knowledge and expertise.

    Pros

    Some very intelligent and interesting people to work with, fair meritocracy where good work is generally rewarded. Stocked Pantry and working in NYC.

    Cons

    Generally outdated technology, Fortran codebase was still widely used. Sometimes redundant work and projects. Very important which group you are in, will determine your overall happiness.

    Advice to Management

    It used to be mostly a flat hierarchy where the lowest employee could find the top boss assessible, but over the years, its moved a bit away from that.

    Pros

    People are generally nice to work with and work is very hands on. Benefits are better than average and firm treats its employees well. Working here is relatively secure. Company has moved in the right direction with flex policy and letting employees change jobs internally.

    Cons

    Some departments work employees like crazy and micromanage. Others are the complete opposite. How hard you work often has no correlation with pay. Generally too slow to advance high performers because many managers have been at the company a very long time. On the other hand, those that become managers quickly are not necessarily qualified and get limited training on managing others. A very big downside of working in a flat structure is your fate is placed in the hands of of one or two individuals that control limited opportunities for promotion.

    Advice to Management

    Management is not reviewed enough by employees and gets away with too much. Managers often get credit for the work of their direct subordinates. There needs to be a better understanding of the value employees bring to the table by management one or two steps above. Too little communication between the ranks.
