    A nice company to get your feet wet

    Consultant (Current Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsThe company has a good list of clients that allow you to start to get your feet wet in working in the financial sector

    ConsThe size of the company and the lack of proper management structure kills the flow of the company. Some of the senior managers have not had positions outside of Gemini and do not know what is happening in the world outside of their sector and what they believe is right.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLearn to listen to your staff, instead of constantly degrading them, pitting them against each other, the management should be looking at energizing the teams internally to want to work on advancing the companies goal.

    Somewhat disorganized.

    Senior Consultant (Former Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsWorked there for many years when the company was a lot smaller. The synergy was great and everyone were treated as family. Weekly meetings were required and welcomed. Keeps everyone informed to what was happening in and out of the company. CEO/Owner was approachable and encouraged personal growth for the employees. Salary was acceptable but bonuses were sparse specially after 9/11 when all bonuses and salary increase were put on hold for many years. Employees/consultants hired by Gemini were usually pretty smart.

    ConsThen came a few employees who made the headquarters their home. When asked what they're working on, the usual answer was one project that never quite made it out in the real world. Management became disorganized and many layers were created between the employees and the CEO/Owner. Cliques were formed and covered their own backs. Not even sure if the owner was quite aware of what was happening during that time period. There were even 2 CTOs at one and both worked at the main office. Each has his own group of closely knit people. I've seen loyal employees who were laid off or left because they weren't included in the cliques. The family oriented company that I once loved became a broken family.

    Advice to Senior ManagementShed some of the layers that formed around the owner and his most loyal employees. Promote from within and not hire from the outside. Continue to build your current employees instead of readily looking to hire somewhere else.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
