    Consultant

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) New York, NY

    ProsDecent pay and pretty good hours.Good introduction to the financial tech world.

    ConsNot much of a challenge. Pretty boring. Repetitive work. Not much growth potential. Not much help available when needed. Management seems in over their head's at times.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe more humble. Hire more effectively for support related positions. Treat people like humans not servers.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

     

    Fun office in Soho

    Vice President (Current Employee) New York, NY

    ProsIt's fun working for a small company where everyone can have a significant impact. The office itself has a warm, friendly atmosphere.

    ConsSince the company is small, there is less room for career growth.

    Nice atmosphere and continuous learning, great for career development

    Client Services (Current Employee) New York, NY

    Pros- Growing company, all teams hiring aggressively and 5 new departments created in the past year. So great career prospects and potential for growth within the company.

    - They organize events from time to time (after work cordials, hiking, secret santa, etc.) which is fun and create a nice team atmosphere. Often colleagues also informally socialize after work, which is nice.

    - Free treats in the kitchen plus nice chocolates from regular visitors and travellers

    - Great work/life balance. The client service team gives 1.5 vacation days for every extra day worked, so we quickly get an extra week or two of vacation!

    Cons- Company growing very fast and many things are changing quickly too, so it's never comfortable (but can be challenging for ambitious people).

    - Some processes or internal tools have become outdated and can be a little painful but the management and R&D team welcome all ideas that can help improve these processes. So these areas can be a new project for creative and proactive people.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Terrible Place To Work

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) New York, NY

    ProsThe Work life Balance is reasonable
    They provide snacks to keep you entertained when you are bored to death with the work you have. Which is basically all the time.

    ConsTerrible management that constantly lie and backstab employees. They show little respect and its all about the bottom line
    No professional development or long term growth
    No real promotion opportunities. Constantly fighting to get your voice heard. Have to be in close with senior management (ie, work as a slave) to have any possibility of moving up.

    Wouldn't recommend this place as a place to work at all. Are far better companies in the same sector to work for.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen, respect and reward your employees who often do a great job with very little guidance or help from senior management.

    Distrust the management.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) New York, NY

    ProsThey are located in SoHo and very close to public transportation to all parts of the city and outer boroughs. They provide snacks to offset any later in the day hunger pangs. Some of the management team are pleasant.

    ConsDo not believe anything management will tell you. Even though, New York is the official headquarters, the "marching orders" comes from London. The heads of departments are located there and they dictate policies and procedures from London. They will blatantly lie to the employees. Additionally, the management will request that you work overtime without compensation or recognition.

    Not Bad

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) London, England (UK)

    ProsGood group of people from a diverse background. Being a small company you get exposure to many different aspects of the business. Opportunities to travel. Good place to learn a wide range of soft skills. It's good working at a company where you know every one.

    ConsPoor internal communication and lack of a visible strategy. Company is trying to transition from small to mid sized and this has resulted in a very top heavy company this combined with poor communication makes it quite political. Pay at entry level is very poor, but it does improve after time. Many of the top position recently have been filed externally.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe more open. Improve communication. Pay graduates better. There are many smart people at Rimes that are undervalued, change the compensation so that it is more inclusive to get everyone pulling in the same direction.
