    Pros

    Opportunity to achieve amazing things quickly and to be apart of a company that is not talking about what it wants do but is actually doing it. The employees below the executive suite are all amazing people that care deeply about the work they are performing. The executives are also good people but they are on a mission and are unapologetic in the pursuit of that mission.

    Cons

    This depends on your mindset. If expect to work 9-5 and have a company hold your hand then this is not the right place for you. You will work hard... you will work long hours... you will sacrifice personal time. Benefits could use some beefing up.

    Advice to Management

    Step back sometimes from the tunnel vision and give back to those that are enabling your success.

    Pros

    Some great people to work with, you get quite a few weekend off, otherwise nothing good to say

    Cons

    The worst place i have ever worked in. Toxic culture, stress thru the roof, work / life balance does not exist. Everytime i drive by their building on the 405 I feel a shiver and thank the lord I have left.

    Advice to Management

    It starts at the CEO, he sets the tone, and everyone follows his lead to survive. he needs to go.

    Pros

    Decent Pay, Free snacks, game room, some talented people to work along with, opportunity to work for a financial company that services some of nations largest banks.

    Cons

    Tons of work, no work life balance, expected to put in long hours on many occasions, also have to provide after hours support after you have put in 9 hours of regular work so you practically end up putting in close to 13-15 hours or sometimes even more on several occasions. The expectations set are completely unrealistic and needs to be done tonight or tomorrow thing. There is lot of dirty politics played around. Miscommunication exist between teams. The bonuses paid are not even mentioning and it is not a part of your offer so yes they can stop it any moment. The monthly medical premium is high. Also worthwhile mentioning few years ago it used to be a place that resembled like an army base, but that has changed a little and it is casual environment now. Lot of folks have quit in the recent past or some were fired. This is not the company if you are looking for some great benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Try and make the office environment more friendly and casual. Provide career advancement opportunities to your employees who give their blood to your company. Provide some more benefits to make the employees happy.
