    Fast growing organization

    Intern (Former Employee) Irving, TX

    Pros-The culture really is very cordial and upbeat.
    -Fairly relaxed environment.
    -This company is growing very fast.
    -Willingness to promote from within for the right people.
    -The ability to simply get your job done without unnecessary interference.
    -Management was always respectful to me.

    Immature

    N/A (Former Employee) Irving, TX

    ProsGrowth unlimited. The company has proven the ability to grow and this affords a great deal of opportunity.

    ConsImmature in process as well as organizational structure. Lack of process isn't necessarily bad in itself, but unwilling to commit to a process is. Primary systems and applications are externally managed preventing IT resources from taking complete ownership of the applications.This prevents the resources from feeling completely comfortable.
    IT has an extremely high turnover rate.

    Advice to Senior ManagementReview IT process and commit to retaining resources.
    Review organizational hierarchy and potentially add more leads or supervisors as opposed to so many VP's and AVP's. There is no in between to participate in the "weeds".

    A diamond in the ruff

    Intern (Current Employee) Irving, TX

    ProsThe company was purchased by Blackstone a few years back and has experienced tremendous growth since then. After working here for a summer it is obviouse as to how they have managed this rapid expansion. They employees here are some of the brightest I have yet to encounter. Most of them have come over from other banking or finance firms, all of which with names you'd recognize. The most impressive aspect of the company is that despite the rapid growth they have maintained a small company atmosphere. Everyone here treats each other with respect, even as an intern I was assigned projects that actually made a difference and I felt valued more and more each day.

    ConsIt doesn't have a large portion of market share, however I would expect to see this change over the next 5-10 years, maybe even sooner.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe sure to keep recruiting the top talent that you have been grabbing consistently. Also, as the company grows do as much as you can to keep the amazing atmosphere and open door policy.

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