    great work-life balance, but horribly terrible manager and significantly under paid

    Client Development Associate (Current Employee)
    Hong Kong (Hong Kong)

    Prosgreat team mates, great culture, great working environment

    Consremarkably terrible manager to cope with. Heavily under paid. Don't think it would be a great place to work if your manager is trying to build up her reputation and look good with your sacrifice. working with a manager who doesn't give a sh*t about you is miserable.

    Advice to Senior Managementfind someone who would really care for her subordinates and make them feel it's safe and worth putting 100% efforts working in your company.

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

    Was a great place to work before management changed

    Business Analyst (Former Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsCulture, office, work load, time in office (very flexible on when to come and when to leave). As long as you got your work done on time, people were cool with you.

    ConsMgmt switched over in early 2012 leading to huge turnover. New leaders were stuffy and resistant to feedback.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    A sweet option for part-timers/flexible proofreader types

    Transcription Proofreader (Current Employee)

    ProsDecent pay, (sometimes) interesting content, not too taxing.

    I work as a proofreader for the transcription department. I listen to the audio of a conference call or presentation and check the accuracy of a transcription. Pretty straightforward, easy work, and most of the calls are pretty interesting. The work is cyclical, tied to quarterly earnings reports of publicly-traded companies, so it's not full time (more like 26-32-ish weeks out of the year), but when there's work, there's plenty of work. Pay is decent but it would be hard to have this be a single job. That's not their fault though, they're very upfront about the amount of work, and most of their people do this as a second/side job so they're usually pretty understanding so long as you stick to what you promise.

    ConsNot a full-time job but can eat up too much time when it's busy.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe coaching opportunities were a good idea and should be continued/expanded.
