    Evolving business model, solid foundation

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) New York, NY

    ProsWork-life balance is decent. Growing so likely some opportunity in niches if you can find it.

    ConsStill trying to figure out direction, which leads to some discontinuity.
    Trying to change culture there as many of the employees are lifers that are stuck doing business a certain way as opposed to determining best course for future of company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAllow employees to take some risks to grow the company. Otherwise, it guarantees mediocrity and inhibits growth.

    Good for a while

    Senior Sales Associate (Former Employee) New York, NY

    ProsGreat co-workers and a fun working environment. Products are ones that clients need and see the value in. 401k match is good.
