    I worked at Rothstein Kass

    Pros

    -Provides great benefit package with ample vacation time and days off
    -Great learning experience and gateway to better opportunities at Hedge Funds or Private companies
    -Paid overtime
    -Firm events (LIFE Initiative, Holiday Party, Picnic)

    Cons

    -Completely unrealistic budgets
    -Some people would be managing 10 jobs during seasom while others only had 3 and would leave at 9pm, while others would be there until past There is no confidentiality. You can take management a personal problem and you can guarantee the whole office knows the next day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Prove trustworthyness to workers
    -Listen when your workers are speaking out (I think something is wrong when 90% of the senior class quit)
    -Give FAIR evaluations with FAIR compensation. It isn't okay to give the entire company the exact same raise. It undermines the dedication some people do put in while the rest just breeze by.

    I think this is a great company to start out at. You learn SO much - about hedgefunds, corporate life, and business, in general. This is a great environment to learn and strengthen your skills. After 4 years or so - get out. It's the best choice I made.
