If you market yourself, build your brand, you can do well.

New York, NY

ProsGreat benefits. Very little late night or week end work on your actual job.

ConsStack ranking requires you to constantly market yourself and your accomplishements to other managers. If you are the person who likes to work hard, do a great job, and be recognized for it, this is not the place for you. You have to spend 15-20% of your time telling other people how great you are. Those who do it well rise quickly.

Advice to Senior ManagementThere has to be a better way to recognize talent in your teams. Find it.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
