Takes top talent and with flexible approach

Research Associate (Current Employee) New York, NY

ProsIntelligent and talented coworkers, flexible and creative, rewards hard work. From my expirience I would say this is one of the most rewarding and interesting jobs I have ever had. Great place to launch a career as it can open many doors down the road.

ConsDisjointed organization, communication between department needs work.

Issues with the competitive landscape of the industry. While being at a smaller company has many advantages in certain arenas it is difficult to compete with the resources and manpower of some of its top competitors. It is a case where the company needs to carefully pick their battles moving forward to avoid getting stepped on by the two headed giant.

Advice to Senior ManagementFlatter structure. Our advantage is being the smaller and more flexible player in our field.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
