Pros

Good work/life balance, good reputation for quality of research, laid back environment, nice people for the most part

Cons

Politics run rampant; difficult to advance past manager level; pay is not very competitive; too many silos of knowledge - ineffective intraorganizational processes; management has a strong tendency to play favorites with employees

Advice to Management

the growth in scope of research coverage you are successfully pursuing is coming at the cost of effectiveness within certain industries you cover

    Pros

    Great company to work for and senior management is very knowledgeable and professional.

    Cons

    Not much opportunity for growth, and junior management does not really have their teams best interest at hand.

    Pros

    Good work-life balance. Convenient location if you're in Queens or Nassau. Friendly culture among the rank and file.

    Cons

    You only get ahead if your part of the clique. Highly political company. Low salaries for the industry. Have no problems cutting loose employees with long tenure. Can't seem to get their act together vis-a-vis the technology (some departments are still using a DO based mainframe, stopped one upgrade in mid-stream to go in a completely different direction). Upper management is arrogant about the appeal of the company to potential recruits. HR is evasive, no transparency.

    Advice to Management

    Take a look at the knowledge base you're sacrificing to politics.
