Pros

The division I worked in allowed me to get exposure to all sides of the business rather than repeating the same tasks. I was given a lot of freedom to get my work done without my manager always watching over my shoulder. I also worked with some of the smartest people I have ever met.

Cons

The company as a whole does not have much spirit or life to it. It is very much a company where you go in and get your work done, then you go home. There was not much corporate culture and it did not offer many functions outside of work.

Advice to Management

Please learn to invest our money in better funds and rework IT so it more functional for the smaller business units.

    Pros

    good people operating under heavy bureaucracy. The company is made up of several fiefdoms.

    Cons

    1. The company has lost its way 2. Management has no serious plan to turn company around 3. Management does not communicate well 4. Who you know get you far 5. IT services is pathetic 6. Nonsensical acquisition strategy,

    Advice to Management

    1. Change the board 2. off load unprofitable business 3. Outsource IT, look for options at a minimum. 4. Attract and retain top talent. There are too many 'B' and 'C' players, need top tier talent


  2. Very nice place

    Cons

    Not all teams are good - but the Quant team is nice. Other teams have Indian HRs who dont understand much about salaries and business.

    Advice to Management

    HR should be of better quality.
