Fast and entrepreneurial

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
New York, NY

ProsFraternal type of enviornment with a emphasis on hard work. At times, long hours and not much emphasis on facetime.

ConsCould use some more structure but as the cmopany has a start-up type of feel, this is expected. Management is working rapidly to put in the necessary structure.

Advice to Senior ManagementManagement can be a bit more congenial and friendly to new recruits they have hired. Step out of the office a bit more and say hello!

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
