Pros

job is easy and if you know how to manage your time, you have time for lunch.
good environment.
useful benefits
good name on your cv

Cons

Let me think.
Low salary. ridicolous salary.
Unexperienced management. senior associates are there because they have been patient and they haven't left the company after few months as any individual with a sound financial background and ambition would do, provided that you haven't got caught in the hamster wheel.
Trainings and meeting are useless and take place just because the corporation says so.
1to1 meetings are a waste of time and are usually scheduled for the rush hours.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

nothing. really.

    Former Employee - Hedge Fund Accountant in Toronto, ON (Canada)

    Pros

    - pay is decent as an entry level position (about 20$/hour and 30$/hour for ot)

    Cons

    - terrible integration as a new employee (being thrown into the water left to sink or swim)
    - no guidance from others and have to figure out everything on your own.
    - training is very general and not helpful at all
    - are expected to understand everything and your responsibilities even after a couple days
    - given funds, clients and deadlines and expected to perform even without proper training
    - worked 12 hour days every day of the week as a new hire because i had to figure everything out on my own (very stressful) expect 55-60 hour weeks for the first couple months.
    - terrible experience starting there, would not recommend it to anyone... there are much better opportunities elsewhere!
    - saw 3 people on my team quit within 3 weeks of being employed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - do not overlook training to new employees (currently wasting everyones time by not providing proper training)
    - needs to be more personalized to help the employee integrate into the company
    - saw 3 people on my team quit within 3 weeks of being employed
