    Pros

    It's a lot like a family. It's dysfunctional sometimes, but everyone pulls together when the time comes. It's the family like aspect keeps the employees loyal. Each is looking out for his brother/sister. The great part of this small company is that you get to know everyone, and can easily become friends with anyone. The office is also very modern with a world class view of Manhattan.

    Cons

    Series of layoffs wrecked moral of remaining employees and there is a general distrust of upper management. The company is not in great shape ever since being fined by regulators in the US.

    Advice to Management

    Get hyper focused on what needs to be done to keep the business running in a sustainable fashion, everything else is just a distraction. Invest some resources towards hiring high quality individuals that can inspire and drive the rest of the workforce.


  7. Small company with good people but management tends to be reactive instead of proactive. Little room for growth.

    Pros

    When I started 3 years ago the atmosphere was great. Great people, interesting work, great training, fun happy hours...Never had to work overtime.

    Cons

    No encouragement from Management, small pay... Since 2012 everything went down in the company... They stopped even doing Christmas Parties...I think now it is slowly getting better again. Will see.

    Advice to Management

    Please talk with all employees.

    Pros

    It is a really easy going place and the people are friendly and interesting to talk to. During quiet times I can even take some time to take a nap. The benefits are also really good.

    Cons

    The business has slowed down a lot, and as a result, the morale of the rest of the employees has taken a hit. The pay is a bit below market, but that is fair since it is so relaxing.

    Advice to Management

    Give your employees something to rally around so they can help you get back on the right track.
