    Pros

    Reputable company in hedge fund industry. A lot of the seniors get to work for hedge funds as accountants after spending a few year in RK.
    Plenty of vacation time. They encourage you to take extra time off for reduced pay (you can still get 20% of your salary after you finished your regular vacation). During off season there isn't much going on in the office, may as well keep you out of the office and pay you less.

    Cons

    Unrealistic expectations of how much time is needed for staff to complete work. Need to negotiate very hard to get hours to finish your work. If you eat hours, you get fired. If you don't eat hours, you never finish your work. And so most of the seniors and staff eat hours secretly.
    A lot of back-stabbing going on in the company. There are certain seniors who are able to befriend the partners and so they can blame everything on the staff when things go wrong.

    Pros

    - 7 weeks vacation (2 weeks accrued from over time)
    - Open door policy
    - Performance evaluation after large jobs
    - Has philanthropy group

    Cons

    - Management doesn't depict a true picture of future business plans (when it affects the employees directly)
    - Prefers people with similar personalities
    - Management is disengaged with firm activities outside the office
    - Some trainings don't match with job levels

    Advice to Management

    -Please value the diversity each person provides. Providing feedback is great, but if the management is not willing to help the individual to overcome the weakness, there is only so much a lower level employee can do by his/herself. Think about where each person fits. Just because they may not have the ability to move onto the next level shouldn't mean that employee is incompetent. If you keep on moving everybody up every year, then everybody would be a manager by their 5th year.
