    I have been working at Measurisk

    Pros

    - decent hours
    - no big fuss about taking days off (but this depends on the manager)
    - support for certifications such as CFA, CAIA, FRM, etc.

    Cons

    - lack of growth and development
    - incompetent management and general lack of care and respect for the employees
    - very high turnover
    - culture that values loyalty much more than merit leading to unfair promotion and compensation practices
    - secretive management (never really knew what was going on with the firm)
    - they hire over qualified analysts to carry out very mundane tasks (i.e. data scrubbing)
    - lack of effective communication between managers, employees, and other departments
    - no 360 review

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire better managers and don't promote people into management positions who clearly are not qualified (both in regards to knowledge and leadership). Hire appropriate personalities and talents for the day-to-day operational work (not "client services" as you call it). Better train and develop your employees. This is especially important as the firm communicates with high knowledge groups like hedge funds. Become a meritocracy.

    I worked at Measurisk

    Pros

    Flexible hours, no one cares what you're doing. Can listen to music and scrub away data and buy/sell personal stocks

    Cons

    no one cares about anything. no one knows anything. horrible managers. managers not interested in training you and don't care about your career development.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    need to hire better managers and hire more operational people. everyone is dying to leave the company which is very sad.
