    ConsSome internal technologies for employees lags behind what is pushed out to the clients, but help desk and IT support make the best of it.

    Without a Doubt, the worst place I have ever worked

    Reconciliation Analyst (Former Employee)
    Harrison, NY

    ProsYou can work from home sometimes

    ConsHours were absurd, I would not leave the office till after 11pm at times and had to work a lot of weekends. This was not because I was doing actual work, it was because they out sourced all of their technology and did not coordinate with their international counterparts for coverage for the most essential parts of the day, when our trade files went down to the PB's.

    This place had the highest turnover I had ever seen. Some new members would say they were leaving for lunch and never come back again. Moral was in the toilet, management was incompetent. They take on new funds before they even know how to reconcile the products leaving new employees with no experience to try to sort out IT issues and reconciliation issues with little assistance effecting the quality of service to hedge fund clients who many times would receive their NAV late and inaccurate.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet a clue

    Very diverse company. Fear of a reorg of all jobs to India

    Associate Manager (Current Employee)
    Hartford, CT

    ProsGood experience in Hedge Fund Admin working with Derivatives, Bonds, Options, etc

    ConsManagement can be someone distant and a cover their own skin type. The fear of losing my job to India is real as the company has about 75% of the jobs in 4 India offices

    Advice to Senior ManagementMore "pats on the back" for good work.

    Software Developer

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsThis is a decent place to start a career if you can't really get your foot in the door anywhere else. Judging from the accounting and operations teams, they'll hire pretty much anyone.
    The people on the development team are genuinely nice and very intelligent.
    Good work life balance.
    Some exposure to hedge fund clients

    ConsDrastically underpaid
    Poor training
    Incompetent accountants and operations people.
    Slow to low advancement
    It seems like most of the development is now outsourced to India.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
