    Pros

    Direct access to the upper management. Ideas with a firm grounding are considered - regardless of who pitched them.

    Cons

    Many incumbents with misaligned incentives. Processes can take on a very bureaucratic nature, which becomes inimical to both efficiency and innovation.

    Advice to Management

    Greater transparency into (and data about) all processes may shed light on current bottlenecks and bureaucratic behavior. Significant effort should be made to have a better overview of the entire system, including detailed insight into specific transactions to root out these hurdles.

    Pros

    Fancy Offices, Fancy Job Titles, Intelligent Employees, Free Coffee

    Cons

    Management does not embody the company's slogan "Where People Matter".
    Employees only matter if they work 60 hours a week, never ask questions, and have no family commitments.
    This company prefers highly educated, worker-bees with no individuality or personality.
    No diversity, everyone in the office is a Caucasian 20-30 year old, they all look the same and dress the same.
    Micromanagement is standard protocol.

    Advice to Management

    The founder/CEO is a great man with a heartfelt vision, but is completely out of touch with what is happening in the offices outside if NY. He should take his own advice of "know your managers". The people running his company put on a good show, but behind the scenes are cut-throat, self-serving, and do not care about their employees.

    Pros

    very bright, close knit group of people, to work with - like to expand businesses by purchasing new ones. Good benefits. Great HR personnel, friendly and helpful. IT technology is supportive, if somewhat behind the times. Better overall support if you are in one of the top business groups.

    Cons

    Limited diversity - privately owned, Have a "flavor of the month" new goals - but don't always seem to stick with them. Seems to better communication if in the NY office - but otherwise not as much. businesses sold off quickly if not in top of industry.

    Pros

    there are no best reasons when upper management is only concerned with their own bottom line. They did not inform personnel of job scopes and expected completed project on time.

    Cons

    See above pros for my opinion.

    Advice to Management

    The people that work for you regardless of their station or level need to be made aware of their job scope if you expect any possibility of success.


  9. This is a decent company to work for.

    Pros

    Nice group of people to work with. The compensation is average for the market. The work hours are long but with I. The norm for the market.

    Cons

    Bonus is only average. Management needs to provide more well defined job objectives and goals. It would be preferable if management would micro manage less.
