very process-oriented and hierarchical - little space for intrapreneurship

Analyst (Current Employee)
New York, NY

Prosgreat work-life balance & flextime
great colleagues
ambitious firm-- focuses on exciting growth areas and apparently willing to invest in those businesses
CEO is energetic and candid
global presence

Consheavy on the paperwork to get any training, travel or expenses approved- it needs to go up 3 or 4 levels of management!
not a lot of space for people with a good idea to 'run with it'-- everything needs to be pre-approved and scrutinized, meaning the company isn't exactly nimble and can't support thought leadership

Advice to Senior Managementdevelop a real HR strategy and some form of talent management. eventually, staff with some ambition will get tired of being process monkeys and will look for work where initiative and a focus on personal development are rewarded.
