It was a rewarding experience where i learned a lot but i never felt like my work made a difference.

Assistant Vice President - Project Management (Former Employee) New York, NY

ProsThe hours were nice for a financial firm. 8:30 to 6:30 with an hr of lunch. The environment was not very cut throat as compared to other places. There were a lot of older workers who were willing to help understand.

ConsSometimes the promotion decisions were made on favoritism rather than ability. To move up faster you have to know someone a few levels up. Also, it is near impossible to talk to an MD, they are treated like gods, which leads to an environment where people are afraid to ask questions or raise concerns

Advice to Senior ManagementReduce bureaucracy and create flatter org structures where an AVP would have access to the MD. Which will make people feel like they are making a difference and also give them a way to express their concerns to proper authorities.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
