Meritocracy? More like mediocracy

Operations Associate (Current Employee) New York, NY

ProsThe few high performers that you do come across are truly exceptionally

ConsMeritocracy is not a concept that management is familiar with. Any employee, regardless of talent or performance, working on "pet" initiatives, is considered to be valuable asset. Promotion is next to impossible if you're not in the "right" roles. Internal mobility is a joke because you cannot apply for the next level up - how does that encourage professional growth within a firm? If you are looking to kill your ambitions, apply now.

Advice to Senior ManagementThink of ways to keep and develop your high performers, unless the long term plan is to end up with a bigger mediocre majority that talks more than works.

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