    Depends on who you know

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) New York, NY

    ProsWork Life Balance
    Allowed to work from home when needed to (Only if you worked a manager that was understanding)

    ConsNo Communication what so ever. No sense of direction from Management. To many Chiefs and not enough Indians.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMore to all the CEO's, COO's etc…speak to the ppl who bust their tail for you day in and day out. You want to see change for the better speak to them.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Unethical

    Catastrophe Modeler (Former Employee) New York, NY

    ProsThe office is conveniently located in NY financial district. The salary paid the rent, that was pretty good. We had fresh fruit delivered at the beginning of the week

    Conson my first day, colleagues started talking badly about others. There is a lot of backstabbing going on and some people in authority made me do unethical things

    Advice to Senior ManagementLead by example. People that are not decision makers in the day to day business should not be penalized bonus wise if the company doesn't make a profit. They still did their job

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