Poorly run investment bank-wannabe

Managing Director (Current Employee) New York, NY

ProsWell stocked kitchen and pantry. Free breakfast cereals/milk.

ConsVery Australian centric business. Expat Aussies make all important decisions, and Americans are thoroughly distrusted. Management tries to cut costs constantly, nickel and diming at every opportunity. Bonuses have been cut drastically, and morale is terrible. The company is pretty ruthless in how it treats its employees, and managers have the ability to fire people at will for no cause.

Advice to Senior ManagementClean out expat Aussie management, and hire locals - they understand American work culture a lot better.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Pros: - high turnover and thin staffing means many opportunities for advancement, taking on additional… Cons: - extensive interview process (and disorganised HR), tends to alienate potentially strong candidates - compensation/bonuses don't reflect the long hours, dedication and hard work that's expected -… Advice to Senior Management: Adapt from the Aussie business model if you want the US business to succeed. Hire locals who know how to get things done, rather than… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
