I worked at Patpatia & Associates

Pros

The compensation is pretty good, especially for those coming right of college with no experience. Business analyst usually starts at about $22.50/hr + benefits (sick, vacation, health). You are exposed to a broad range of sectors within the financial industries. You learn how to be a perfectionist, or at present presentation.

Cons

This can be the most terrifying place to work since management expects perfection starting on day 1 of your employment. Upper management has little respect for their employees. There is extreme micro-managing because there little trust in the organization. It seems like everyone is always walking on egg shells. Independent working and thinking is not a top priority, as upper management prefer their analysts to just "do" the task at hand, instead of understanding the bigger picture. Communication is very lacking in their organization. Only the top management know what projects are about, while analysts are told to perform specific researching tasks --without ever know why they are doing what they're doing.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Use like scare/fear tactics and instead, learn to build trust and respect among your organization, it would make for a happier and more productive work environment. Good luck.

    I have been working at Patpatia & Associates

    Pros

    For people who work well on their own, this place is fantastic. The offices are well-lit and a nice place to work in. Management really offers people responsibility and the chance to make the most of it.

    Cons

    Starting at 8 AM isn't my favorite and often overtime is necessary. That is both good and bad because you are compensated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The style is macro-management, which is great for self-starters but instructions need to be more specific for those who require more guidance.
