Pros

The benefits, compensation, co-workers, amenities in the NY office.

Cons

Although professional and career growth is a common topic it doesn't necessarily translate into administrative roles. Senior management however is engaged with its admin staff.

Advice to Management

Develop a real plan of action for the career advancement/development of the administrative staff. Perhaps an Admin U offering courses via intranet, in class, and off site.

    Pros

    I just started fulltime here after consulting for about 4 months. The company is big in some ways, small it others. The compensation is very good and I hear that the bonuses are great. The retirement benefits are outstanding; for my age bracket they are putting 12% of my salary away into a pension. Job flexibility is huge. Because of the 'small shop' mindset many people don't seem to work that hard so the bar is set low. Combine this with the big push on working from home and you can have a pretty flexible lifestyle. Many genuinely nice people, beautiful campus (Charlotte) and proving financial services to education and research.

    Cons

    Because it is run like a small shop in many ways there are many processes either broken or completely missing this can be frustrating. Things move slowly. Because so many people are so laid back relying on others can be a problem. I have heard that upward mobility is limited but I haven't been here long enough to see this for myself.

    Advice to Management

    Keep focusing on the staff, I know that in my case it helps me stay loyal and want to remain with the company. I see a lot of good things happening, hoping I can stick around for a good long time.

    Pros

    Pay was great, OT opportunities were abundant, benefits were pretty good. Campus was nice to walk around when you needed a break.

    Cons

    Management very slow in making decisions. While there were opportunities for movement to other units, moving up was almost impossible. Alot of co-workers were like zombies, would just stay in their cubes and eat at their desk - social environment was very dry.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be afraid to think outside the box and get ideas moving!
