Pros

Great people from the top down. A good business with plenty to learn if you look in the right places. Opportunity and experience gain. Comfortable culture, and currently a great location. Great benefits package and above average compensation. This really is a great place to work.

Cons

No transperancy. Current industry difficulties and operations shifting south are breeding uncertainty and leave stability in question. Water cooler rumors. Lots of turnover with some at the senior level. Lack of seniority inspired enthusiasm in all departments.
Still a great place to work.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Honest communication from the top tier to the group regarding the present and future of the company in order stop the rumors and the turnover. Top tier and middle managers should inspire their teams to be motivated and enthused. Lead the teams back to big call numbers by getting into the middle of the action with them. CRG is a great place to work, but it could be amazing.

    Pros

    - Fun, young environment; plenty of corporate events (holiday parties, office potlucks, happy hours, philanthropic causes, the JPMorgan Corporate Challenge)
    - Manageable, consistent hours; promotes good work-life balance
    - Positive, encouraging atmosphere (a rarity amongst financial services firms in New York)
    - Mid-level Management are excellent at training, providing guidance and feedback
    - Great place to learn a broad-based professional skill set in research, sales, account management or marketing

    Cons

    - Better communication and cooperation across the different apartments
    - It's a small company, so an established time table and hierarchy for promotions is not established; there are opportunities for growth, but you need to recognize and seize them for yourself

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Overall, I like the Management Team. I would suggest taking strong initiative in facilitating cooperation and communication across the different departments, but I've already seen them take steps toward accomplishing that.

    Pros

    A fantastic place to begin a career where every individual is given the opportunity to interact with management as well as some executives on occasion. The collaborative work environment facilitates a positive atmosphere and success is openly rewarded. The work-life balance is maintained by the entire company and it remains a pleasure to come into work everyday.

    Cons

    With a large amount of responsibility, there can be some issues with handling outside conflicts and irate experts. It's tough to balance the client and expert needs at times however, management is typically accommodating and will help.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work and continue to allow a collaborative work environment that elicits idea flow and generation.
