    Hard work, good rewards, edgy culture

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    You can learn a lot, there are many highly intelligent people here. If the people that count like you, you are in. Promotion decisions are not always made on merit, but on "who likes you." People without a rabbi, even good ones, will have to work harder to be noticed, if they are noticed at all.

    Cons

    Lots of pressure to work nights/weekends. Edgy culture is deliberate but overdone. Expected to be on email at all times and respond immediately.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't be afraid to show a little humanity, it won't kill you.
