Best for fast movers

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Boston, MA

ProsThis is the kind of place that is well suited for those that crave immediate impact. They value those that can get things done quickly, even if it's not perfect. The mantra is Facebook-esque: Move fast and break things. There is a high tolerance for mistakes, but low tolerance for slowness.

This is also the kind of place where analysts have a leg up. Those that move up fastest seem to be some combination of fast moving and smart analyst.

ConsNot the most ideal for those that like to pontificate, ponder, or theorize. This company make decisions quickly and you don't want to be the bottleneck. Also not the best place for those that aren't looking to advance and grow. The company culture works best for ambitious, fast, and analytical types.

Advice to Senior ManagementProvide a better environment for those of us that actually want to base their careers on a steady job here.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
