Pros

It's a very diverse, new-age company with several international locations to visit and work. The salary is also very good. The opportunity to travel is awesome.

Cons

The management team contained some members that were not fair/approachable and the company has mandatory late night hours that sometimes cannot be avoided which is not acceptable when you have family.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make sure the management team in place listens to the employees/tries to help more instead of giving random 'errors' or offer ways to improve.

    Pros

    - Great autonomy in your position
    - Good work-life balance in most departments
    - Flexible schedules
    - Friendly, energetic and driven staff
    - Opportunity for upward and internal mobility
    - Generous pay increases and bonuses
    - Reasonable expectation of company's continued stability

    Cons

    - Lack of transparency from corporate management to branch locations
    - In some instances, lack of communication between departments
    - Egos from mid-level management due to inflated titles and promoting the wrong people
    - For some positions, very low starting salaries (although, refer to Pros, generous increases)
    - Inconsistency in rewards between departments

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more open with your employees in locations outside of New York. Communicate more frequently with employees and visit the other offices. Many employees have never met executive management and this creates general distrust to managment and makes them feel undervalued. Seek to show that you value to your non-sales employees.

    Good company to begin your career in, but not to stay for the long run.

    Pros

    Ability to learn different aspects and share knowledge to build your portfolio of knowledge.

    Cons

    Needs better upper management across most departments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to be chosen not by how long they have been there, but for all aspects of knowledge and willingness to listen to others, be a team player. Promotions because you are someone's family or friend is the worst idea. People see right through that, and wont appreciate it.
