Pros

-Get extremely deep in complex and interesting topics about accounting, valuation, and corporate profitability. -Learn stocks the right way. New Constructs' value-oriented approach is well-respected and its picks consistently beat their benchmarks. -Management works hard to let people run with good ideas. You aren't just a cog in the wheel. -Learn how to use technology to make data-driven decisions. Many analysts get SQL access to the database. -Excellent work/life balance, except for a few weeks during peak period. -Great place to start your career.

Cons

-You must have a passion for investing and stocks to enjoy the work. -Although strategy is an important part of the training program, you don't get much exposure to understanding companies' competitive positions. For example, you can build a model for Apple and have no idea how many iPads the company sold last quarter.

    Pros

    - The experience acquired working at New Constructs is absolutely unique compared to what you might get at another research outfit. Specifically, because the company covers such a high volume of stocks at such a granular level, analysts are able to develop an intuitive understanding of the various tendencies and structure of a typical company in each industry. - Environment supports regular idea development and constant improvement of existing processes. Very similar to a Silicon Valley Start-up in this sense. Management recognizes that its greatest asset is it's employees: when an employee has an idea that might improve competitive position, the company encourages the employee to develop and implement the idea. - Fantastic Work/Life Balance, aside from February through April.

    Cons

    -Filing Season in February through April. Hours are lengthened and work can be stressful.

    Pros

    Some of the people in the company were great to work with. The training provided some solid financial analysis skills.

    Cons

    I found it a bait-and-switch situation. There were great promises of deep analytics skill development and advanced responsibility. After a six months, the reality became apparent: the bulk of people were there like sweat-shop workers. The owner is under the delusion that he has a corner on the market of truth and accuracy. Overall environment was pretty toxic.

    Advice to Management

    Management should retire and let someone who is competent run the company.
