Great company with a relaxed atmosphere

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) New York, NY

ProsRelaxed dress code, opportunity to learn and grow, great co-workers, and fun company functions when I was there. Overall, I think it was the best job I ever had

ConsPay was low and some senior managers / directors were a nightmare to work with. Sometimes it took for ever to get a raise. And there was some high turnover in some departments, but for the most part, people were in it for the long haul.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Pros: Wonderful colleagues--attracts the best talent! Great benefits-- I'll stay a while to keep them. The management supports doing your work well and will never encourage… Cons: Managers are out of touch with what their employees do, so are surprised when employees are over-worked. Work-life balance is poor; 20% of my division… Advice to Senior Management: This used to be a great company, but now morale is lower than I've seen it in all my years here and I see us… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
