Great people, decent company, lack of opportunity for long term.

Associate of Operations (Former Employee)
San Francisco, CA

ProsTalented cast of individuals working at the firm.
Majority are SME and very friendly and willing to help.
Firm is well known in the industry

ConsLack of opportunity for growth on many occasions.
Promotions exist only whenever someone leaves a position.
Firm does not cover additional training that may prove helpful in the future for both the firm & the employee.
Very tight budgets in many departments which also means that you have to make due with what tools you have.

Advice to Senior ManagementListen to your employees and contribute in ways that will provide growth opportunities and mentoring for them to succeed. Recognize those employees that put their heart and soul into the company and assist in elevating them to the next level. Motivate and train managers to challenge those on their team to perform to their potential and be sure to listen to their feedback received.
