Pros

Free membership to their beautiful gyms; good and interesting people to work with; company is rapidly expanding so it could be exciting to work for a company growing as such.

Cons

In corporate it is low pay and ridiculously low increases year over year. You work very hard for minimal raises that don't even cover the cost of living increases - which are very high in New York. They don't appreciate anyone who isn't sitting in a Director's office or higher.

Advice to Management

Try to pretend you care about your employees a bit. Appreciate what they do instead of treating them like garbage.

    Pros

    Have not found anything to like here - the Gym is nice but after a few months you will not have time to use it. Oh - the bathrooms are in the gym - thats not a Pro....

    Cons

    No Leadership Team. C Level is weak on leadership and this trickles down throughout the entire company making everyone suffer No Communications from management on upcoming projects/current project No Status Meetings No formal Process IT Department is a joke. - There is no leader. When you step up you get shot down. Extrememe workload with no help No Teamwork - just a bunch of individuals trying to get through the day Lunch was at my desk every day No friendly people No job career growth No encenives to work harder no bonus no salery increases no review process

    Advice to Management

    You keep saying you are an 800Mil company - act like one. You still run this as a mom and pop shop. Listen to your employees - turnover here is high (Why???) - See above

    Pros

    The "trendy" factor is good for a little while, but don't expect to be rewarded for loyalty or time served. If successful, opportunity to earn 90k a year is totally achievable, but good luck having time to spend the money.

    Cons

    You're only as good as your last sale. If you don't sell, you're out in 3 months. The base is non-existent, hence the motivation to sell. There is little to no work/life balance. There is a "closeout" at the end of each month, which consists of 12+ hour shifts during the last 4 days every month, no matter what days they may fall on. (Weekends-Holidays-Etc.)

    Advice to Management

    Increase the base.
