Horrible place. Unless your kids are starving, look elsewhere.

Operations (Former Employee)
Greenwich, CT

ProsPaycheck and Health Insurance, Free lunch ( that isn't free at all )

ConsImpotent HR, Flawed review process, complete disrespect to employees, Blind following of orders is required, Dysfunctional atmosphere that could be damaging to mental well-being in the long run. Do not confuse this company with any other in the financial filed and do not get fooled by interviewers who are trying to draw a rosy picture, you will regret it later. Low compensation and bonus compared to industry standards.

Advice to Senior ManagementInvest into employees, review your middle management so that they do not abuse power, start acting like a $6B company. Interview employees and review their goals ambitions and general well being. Give employees ability to submit anonymous reviews of their managers. Educate your middle management, as they are mostly uneducated without any real management experience thinking bullying is an appropriate management style.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Pros: The money is pretty good. They pay programmers very well and they pay managers very well, but everyone else is paid just okay, but you… Cons: You work here for the money. That's the bottom line. They pay for lunch, but not because they're nice, it's so you stay at your… Advice to Senior Management: These guys are hopeless. It all flows from the CEO's benevolent dictator management style. Until and unless he changes his personality, it will continue on… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More

The first time I tried going out for lunch, I was reprimanded by my manager and told that lunch is… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
