    Pros

    Very relaxed environment and company culture as it compares to industry competitors. In my experiences, I've met and worked with many talented individuals. Much of the senior leadership is very interested in growing talent internally.

    Cons

    Managed service provider.... Took 10 days for a simple program to be pushed to my Desktop. Coming from another large Fortune 500 company, Ive noticed monumental differences in site support.

  2. Nice place

    Pros

    Awesome location, good benefit, relax environment, a lot of social activities, nice employees, don't need to dress up in Wall Street,

    Cons

    small office, not to much option for lunch, but you know it's Wall Street in Manhanton in New York City, every inch worth a feet, so it's fine.

    Advice to Management

    May be need to consider how to keep an eye on each project, at least for interns it doesn't feels like everyone is getting enough attention for their grow.

  3. Satisfying for the most part.

    Pros

    Management does value tech and realizes they will build the future of the company. Pay is good.

    Cons

    Management seems indecisive on direction. New direction has been promised for about 7 months now and nothing has come. The new CEO seemed promising but nothing has happened yet. Patience goes only so far.

    This job isn't demanding but gets redundant after sometime.

    Make sure the employees are learning something new and are not excluded from the learning cycle.

    Pros

    Company was full of young people to socialize with - overall college-like atmosphere with little or no oversight from management.

    Cons

    Little to no oversight or direction from anyone due to constant turnover in management. One new senior level manager would come in and within 2 weeks would hire 10 of his friends from a former employer.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your talent. At one time this company was run by executives who worked their way through the ranks and had a personal interest in the long term success of the company, now you are lucky if someone stays for a full year!

    Pros

    Ping pong table, pool table, video games. Work hrs are pretty manageable

    Cons

    Dead end job, no vision in place, way too much miscommunication between departments.

    Advice to Management

    Take a step back and look at the big picture, instead of just profits, then maybe people will stay longer than 1-2 yrs at the company

    Pros

    Great team environment, clear path for growth, and allows you to work on your own projects on a day-to-day basis.

    Cons

    Hard to understand the vision of the firm on a daily basis. Sometimes main sales techniques and success stories get lost in translation. Feel a bit of distance from other corporate offices.
