    Pros

    The company culture is fun, and the people here are really smart. Lots of interesting strategies you can learn.

    Cons

    May need some new portfolio mangers instead of focusing on "old school" stuffs. Catch the trend.

  2. smart driven teams delivering results

    Pros

    - worked with really smart people
    - small company work environment with big company pockets
    - great benefits : healthcare + free breakfast/lunch/snacks/drinks/beer (on fridays)
    - suprising number of staff have been here longer than +5 years
    - great work life balance ... especially when compared to working IB in a place like NYC

    Cons

    - career growth is not via titles/positions but in expanded responsibility and increased pay (in case you're someone who likes to get new shiny titles every year, this place might not be for you)
    - gained 10 pounds in my first year thanks to all the free food ... caveat emptor!

    Advice to Management

    - might be interesting to shake things up some and let (technology) staff spend 6 month 'embeds' in alternate teams to promote more cross pollination between teams.
