Pros

At the forefront of technology. The company was years ahead of others in terms of technology.

Cons

I had seen many people leave and come back with higher salaries and titles, but other who stuck around did not see the same type of promotions and raises.

    Pros

    The Firm only recruited the brightest people so you were always working with people that hallenged you. But is was also a very team oriented company so the balance was important of moving business forward.

    Cons

    Towards the end there was morebegoninvolved by he senior management and that led to the rims downfall. They should have thought about employees who built the company and not there personal bank accounts.

    Advice to Management

    Don't let greed get in the way of doing the right thing, even if it is hard to do
    .

  2. Ambitious, entrepreneurial but not as well managed as the top investment banks
