    Good for a time, but you hit a ceiling

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsEnjoyed the people I worked with directly. Very collaborative team.
    Growing company
    Opportunities to learn and grow if you look for them

    ConsOrganization is less nimble (and more bureaucratic) than it should be. Too many layers of positions makes it difficult to advance past a certain point.
    Work/life balance isn't bad, but very stressful day-to-day while in the office. Always putting fires out.

    Zero stars.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsSome of the people who worked there deserve credits.

    ConsIncompetent IT management at all levels. IV league graduates get handled by high schoolers. Culture of mediocrity. All the talents leave the company after a while.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRiders on the storm, the cloud is coming to an end.

    GMI Analyst

    GMI Analyst (Current Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsThe paid-days off isnt bad. Salary isn't great. Nice people but it depends on the team you are working for. Many people use this job as a stepping stone. You have great access to upper management of public companies.

    ConsThe promotion and salary is not that good. Perk could be better. There is no overtime. You just get dinner and a free ride back home. High turnover rate and long hours.

    Don't bother

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsGood amount of vacation time
    Casual work environment
    Things got done (at the cost of work-life balance)

    Cons1) Rampant nepotism: Be related to or be liked by someone in management to get promoted, get good projects, bonuses, raises, etc.

    2) No career development: Ipreo doesn't invest in employee development period. Employees work on the same products for years.

    3) Not a culture of innovation: granted this is not a consumer tech company, but the products here are really stale. It's hard to muster any enthusiasm for the stuff that's peddled. User experience design is an after thought.

    4) Negative culture: lots of cliques. Product and tech clash a lot and everyone is trying to over their behind rather than work together to put out a good product. When I was there they still used the waterfall method of product development. Who does that anymore?

    5) Working your teams to the bone: Long hours at the cost of time with your family, friends, health is normal here. Working nights, weekends - it's all fair game. I'm all for putting in hard work when needed, but things got ridiculous after a point.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop the blatant nepotism. Fire the dead weight and don't be afraid to think like a tech company. Banks will always be risk averse but if you put out good products that are also a delight to use, that will only help you.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Not the worst place to work, but there's better opportunities out there.

    Senior Product Analyst (Former Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsGood people and great learning experience but if you're even slightly ambitious don't spend more than 2 years in any department or role here.

    ConsExtremely low compensation - below market. Highly paid 'experienced' hires are brought in and given managerial responsibilities even though they lack any management experience or training. Usually a promotion is just a title change with no real benefits except for more work. Huge bottlenecks at the senior management level.

    Additionally there is a lot of favoritism here and you'll see a lot of "friends and family" working all over at senior positions they don't seem qualified for.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Revolving door

    GMI Analyst (Current Employee)
    New York, NY

    Pros-great training program
    -work life balance
    -access to senior management of large publicly traded companies
    -jump right in as a junior analyst

    Cons-plateau very quickly (after about 1 year)
    -no room to really grow
    -associates are doing the same job as analysts and senior analysts...promotions are just title changes
    -pay is WAY below competitive rates
    -review process is terrible and takes way too long
    -lots of inconsistency across the division
    -team directors are not trained to manage, at all
    -cant retain talent
    -they don't market the job well, there is more grunt work even for more senior people
    -most days are the same

    Advice to Senior Management-pay better to retain talent, most people don't make it 2-3 years, its hard to keep training more people rather than keeping people on staff who know how to do the job already
    -make sure that more senior people have real responsibilities
    -create a better career path where the change is not just a title bump

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Excellent Place to Work

    Senior SQL Programmer (Former Employee)
    Bethesda, MD

    ProsThey keep up with current technology and give employees the opportunity to learn new technologies related to their job. Was allowed to work from home when there was a personal reason that made it more convenient. Management is good at supporting employees during life crisis.

    ConsThere is a lot of project tracking. The tech team I worked on seldom allowed employees to work from home when they wanted to, but always expected employees to work from home when the employer wanted them to.

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