    I worked at Custom House Global Fund Services

    Pros

    + Work - life balance good in the past (Not so since the new COO came over from Equity Trust)
    + Interactions at work is good, friendly.
    + Almost impossible to get fired.

    Cons

    - IT functions can be in a mess on random days and either of their 4 different timezone office is bound to be much affected as they geographically cover most of the time zones.
    - Low pay, Lowered headcounts, Ever increasing workload. Looks like they figured out paying OT is cheaper than hiring in the other offices.
    - Flat Hierarchy leads to few promotions - politics.
    - Suggestions often knocked back without reaching the Senior management.
    - Information exchange very much frowned upon and could be recorded unless it is purely work.
    - Very rigid & regimental management system.
    - Almost no choice of departments to transfer to as the company can still be considered relatively small - very few departments.
    - Any transfer of departments would be be very much based on your pay and not interests.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't squeeze your employees so much. There is simply too few perks and too many cons. Getting rid of the COO would be the quicker way to make everyone happier and the company more attractive to job hunters.
