    Great place to work at.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Stamford, CT

    Pros- Relaxed atmosphere
    - Friendly environment
    - Awesome amenities!
    - Nice snack room, and great cafeteria with good food.
    - In house GYM, plus dry cleaners.

    ConsHQ located in Connecticut, so its a bit of commute if your coming in from NY. Traffic is horrible too which doesn't help. Don't feel like there very entry level friendly, not much mentoring going on, but might just depend of the position.
