I worked at New Constructs full-time for more than 5 years
Pros – -Get extremely deep in complex and interesting topics about accounting, valuation, and corporate profitability.
-Learn stocks the right way. New Constructs' value-oriented approach is well-respected and its picks consistently beat their benchmarks.
-Management works hard to let people run with good ideas. You aren't just a cog in the wheel.
-Learn how to use technology to make data-driven decisions. Many analysts get SQL access to the database.
-Excellent work/life balance, except for a few weeks during peak period.
-Great place to start your career.
Cons – -You must have a passion for investing and stocks to enjoy the work.
-Although strategy is an important part of the training program, you don't get much exposure to understanding companies' competitive positions. For example, you can build a model for Apple and have no idea how many iPads the company sold last quarter.
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

I worked at New Constructs full-time for less than a year
Pros – - Small company
- Friendly atmosphere
- Long winter break, fair amount of off days
Cons – - Inferior benefits to the majority of similar companies in the area
- Seriously flawed "mentoring" program. The so called mentoring program feels more like busy work with a lack of focus. Challenging programming exercise to get the position in the first place, yet in 2 months I did almost zero programming (and nothing in Java).
- Starting salary is looooooow
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
