Great place to start a career, but not enough incentive to stay.

Pros

The benefits package was a highlight - especially the MRP. Also, the work atmosphere was very casual and open communication was strongly encouraged.

Cons

Pay was on the low end of the scale. Also, there was a lot of favoritism shown during promotion periods.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Embrace changes in the financial markets and explore new possibilities for business.

    Former Employee - Level III IT  in  Los Angeles, CA
    Former Employee - Level III IT in Los Angeles, CA

    Pros

    Very comfortable setting, with many basic food infrastructure (paper plates, plastic ware, snakes, espresso, coffee).
    I felt respect from my direct manager.
    stable environment. Not likely to have something unexpected happen to your job.
    Nice people on my team, helpful and truly good natured people.

    Cons

    Directionless.
    Too many unnecessary meetings.
    Too slow to innovate IT technology
    Too difficult too land a job (if your a contractor), doesn't matter if your good.
    Too much middle management.
    Very little opportunity for growth (at least within the IT departments)
    Strange unspoken strictness, and a lack of natural friendly communication between people (strange polices) and too stuffy (overly conservative).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This is a tough one because management really doesn't have much choice. But I would ask them to encourage more open dialog with there teams and get more directly involved in what we are doing. They are a bit out of touch to the day to day of what we do. I realize the IT and this company in general are going though a lot of changes but the close feeling I got is not good for any kind of growth.
