Pros

The pay is very reasonable for interns. If you are outgoing Newedge is a great place to network with professionals to land a post-graduation job.

Cons

The environment isn't the most professional that I have experienced. It is also easy to recognize faults in multiple lines of communication within the company.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The internship program could use a little bit more structure in the future. I would suggest organizing one or two intern events throughout the summer so that interns can share experiences.

    Pros

    Good benefits- Good 401k program, good insurance, good continuing education program, good amount of PTO. Sometimes there is an Ice Cream social on the top floor.

    Cons

    Upper management is in France away from the majority of the staff. They make decisions that are not based on what is good for business and has a negative impact on employee morale. It is difficult sometimes dealing with French models of business and egos. Many times efforts are made from upper management directives that squander important resources; often these overly consuming efforts are wasted when upper management decides to go in another direction away from original efforts. Business lines are always dictating the priority of their projects/initiatives and when priorities are not agreeable to them they will waste no time stating displeasure to the highest management that will hear them. There has been little to keep very talented staff on the payroll and little effort to hire talent to replace vacancies despite fairly shallow programs to attract new hires. The aren't enough people to do what this firm wants to do. 2 years ago there was, but the company wasted lots of money and left their employees holding the bag. The company had promise 2 years ago, but it is a place now with little motivation to be a competitor. Its not a cohesive place with a majority focus or goals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop hemorrhaging talented people and pay the money to attract talented people. Give your employees more respect and stop wasting resource and efforts. There needs to be more unity and the employees need more motivation to take pride in their firm.
