    Growing Pains

    Analyst (Current Employee) New York, NY

    ProsExecutives and upper management do listen to feedback from below.

    ConsBackoffice roles (IT, HR, Finance, etc) are unorganized. This leads to inefficiencies and poor support for employees and managers.

    Advice to Senior ManagementExecutives and upper management need to start working together to move towards establishing standards for compensation and job movements rather creating exceptions that are impossible to keep up with.

    It's a stable and conservative firm but being small, not too many opportunities to move up

    Assistant Vice President (Current Employee) New York, NY

    ProsCommunication from top is clear. Supportive management as long as we take the initiative. Benefits are competitive. People are helpful and knowledgeable

    ConsFirm is small so upward mobility is challenging. Benefits need to improve on the 401K match and annual pay increase. Stagnant for few years

    Advice to Senior ManagementMake 401K more competitive by matching a higher percent and dollar amount. Allocate more resources for employee training to improve skills and learn new technology.

    Horrible

    Executive Assistant (Former Employee) Dallas, TX

    ProsGreat health insurance, free parking or DART

    ConsNo HR in Dallas, this place is in SERIOUS need of a work audit! Several people are paid full salaries for showing up to work late, leaving early, taking long lunches, and sitting in the worthless office manager's office gossiping all day.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDo a work audit, check competency of employees (someone that can not tell you what the company does, has no basic microsoft office skills, is unable to scan a document should not be an "office manager")

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Incredibly positive and a great place to get buy side experience

    Intern (Current Employee) New York, NY

    ProsGreat hours, ridiculously smart people, great atmosphere, one big family. Other employees are very accessible and are always helpful and informative.

    ConsMost people are entrenched. Implications are that the mobility is a little difficult; the workers are all experienced and are near end-career

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement seems to be moving the company in a strong upward direction. After recently leaving Lehman Brothers, the company has been working to maintain and expand its position.
