Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Arlington, VA
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Arlington, VA
Disapproves of CEO

Pros

A small firm affords the potential for recognition of one's contributions by upper management... at least in theory.

Cons

Instability faced by diminished returns by the IB department is seriously impacting the viability of the firm.

Advice to Management

Morale has deteriorated badly. Rather than confusing matters by diversifying into new lines of business (which they have no experience and consequently no success in), they should instead focus on rehabilitating what has brought them steady revenue in the past.
