A great place to work for a few years, learn, and make connections; harder to make it forever

Pros

Lots of resources, access to almost anyone in financial services, good training programs, food and other amenities are topnotch
Employee perks like summer picnic and Big Apple Circus make you feel valued

Cons

Product managers and engineers will struggle to work across businesses and overcome twenty-five years of legacy systems; everything takes longer to get done or ships with less functionality than it should; many long-tenured employees are semi-retired at full pay, and loyalty is often put above current productivity

Advice to Management

More career development at mid-career; lots of skilled people plateau for not making the right connections or knowing the right people above them

    Pros

    The work balance is fair and as a contract analyst I am able to complete my work and focus on external opportunities without a problem.

    Cons

    The company is completely disorganized and communication among departments is poor, there are clicks within the company and the office politics are at extreme levels. The project goals are ambiguous and opportunities for career advancement are limited.
