    Pros

    Good work life balance, save for IT
    Competitive compensation

    Cons

    Change averse, fear of bold initiatives..."what if the clients don't approve?"
    Myopic viewpoints, thinking in the short term
    Culture of distrust
    Very little knowledge sharing, and feedback is scant
    Willing to entertain new ideas and talk about innovation, but action is rarely taken to support it.
    Focus is on minutia, and not critical matters

    Advice to Management

    Make communication more bilateral, especially on the strategic level. The C-level open door policy seems to be more of an espoused value rather than one that is enacted.

    Pros

    -fairly relaxed culture, 8-5 is the norm
    -good benefits package
    -recognized brand in the sector

    Cons

    -mostly run out NY, little analysis or development done in Europe
    -little chance for career development because teams are quite siloed and a fairly small company
    -they took over Xtrakter/Trax but there's little overlap between the two. There's a lot of potential for shared gains but little has been done

    Advice to Management

    -spend more money on development/improvement of the Platform, not on client expenses
    -more linkages with Trax
