Culture of Excellence and Fun - But Bring Your Own Paddle

Quantitative Analyst (Current Employee) Alexandria, VA

ProsStrong commitment to a fun and productive work environment. Focus on competitiveness, but not in a "me vs them" kind of way - you are competing with yourself to do as well as you can. Senior management is always trying to find more/better ways at employee introspection and evaluation to - gasp - actually improve the lot of the employee, not generate nasty metrics to hold over anyone's head. Very flexible work schedules when needed, and especially accommodating to workaholics that keep odd days/hours :) Why bring your own paddle? That is a pro and a con, but I'll put it here. It is both very easy to settle in and at most move about sideways, but if you are a 10X'er and willing to put yourself out there and be flexible with what you can/will do, opportunities abound - but it is more in your hands than anyone else's to make something substantial happen.

ConsChain of command is dynamic, which makes cultivating and advancing ideas sometimes challenging. Duplicate efforts crop up occasionally because there isn't sufficient communication taking place between different areas that are doing concept development, and the company is growing fast enough that this feels like it is increasing a bit. As for the Paddle - see above since it is both a pro and a con
