Got a little ahead of itself, now paying the price

Associate (Former Employee) New York, NY

Pros-Very sharp group of people from top to bottom
-Not a bank or a startup...somewhere in the middle
-Allow career growth for exceptional employees
-Work in assets that are new and interesting
-Lot of exposure to different business models and technologies

Cons-Company is no longer a cash cow
-Very slow to develop the online tools
-Management isn't experienced in running a mid-sized company
-A lot of the best folks left when the company began to decline
-Skill set isn't easily transferable within the finance community
-Comp isn't what it used to be
-Lack of overall direction confuses employees

Advice to Senior ManagementI think they'll figure something out eventually but they need to nail down a direction for the company. Are you a broker or a software developer?

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
