    Cold corporate culture with limited resources

    Client Services (Current Employee) New York, NY

    ProsTasks keep you busy daily. Client-facing opportunities. Good mix of financial services and technology platform. Corporate environment.

    ConsVery limited workspace, such as desks, conference rooms, kitchen, restroom.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPay more attention to your shining stars from the ground up. Some middle managers are not fully qualified for their roles - keeps saying "I don't know" when you ask technical questions rather than mobilize resources to get answers.

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