I worked at Rothstein Kass

Pros

Additional PTO from working busy season hours
Diverse crowd of people to work with
Firm events (Picnic, Holiday party)
Extensive exposure into the hedge fund industry
Ability for seniors to manage clients and coach new staff

Cons

Unrealistic budgets and expectations
Lack of training opportunity for new staff (start in mid-November but only have little time to prepare for busy season which can overwhelm them)
Very long hours during busy season and even for jobs out of season
Management having the quick trigger of letting people go

Advice to Management

Listen to the employees of what they need to help them to achieve success in the firm. Most often when giving performance reviews it can hurt the staff's confidence and management really needs to help out the staff from a humanistic standpoint.

  1. The company LOOKS good when you start off. BUT you learn quickly how much politics is involved.

    Pros

    The employees are very friendly and the company DOES try to keep employees happy.

    Cons

    to continue from my "pros" sentence, the company FAILS miserably in TRYING to keep us happy! so much politics. and the seniors and managers are HORRIBLE! they do not explain to you. the training sucks its all on the job training.

    Advice to Management

    they need to learn to be patient and help the juniors instead of actually yell at them in front of everyone as if they are in some class room. no such thing as corporate environment!

    Pros

    Decent benefits and PTO
    Many great co-workers
    A diverse group of employees
    Opportunity to learn, depending upon whom you work for

    Cons

    Increased pressure to "network" since business downturn
    Quality of client experiences vary
    Increased pressure to keep time "down" on complex jobs because clients want lower fees
    Quality of training varies from poor to excellent, with little oversight

    Advice to Management

    Don't "buy" business from clients and then expect jobs to come within an unrealistic budget
    Don't make promises to clients without considering your staff's workload
