    Pros

    Great work life balance, really nice perks such as Pool and Ping Pong. Trying to be innovative, and you have flexibility to try out new ideas as long as they are not too risky.

    Cons

    Doesn't pay well, and people are not ambitious. Most everyone is rather risk averse.

    Advice to Management

    Lead by example

    Pros

    The culture is good - management has been trying to improve morale through events, benefits, and fancy new fad-office design - PS4s and X-Box Ones, treadmill and standing desks, etc.

    Cons

    The technology is dated and backwards, and strives towards modernizing/embracing newer, more productive patterns and libraries have been dragged down by management that either doesn't get it or actively stops innovation. It's gotten too big to be what it once was - a focused team that valued talent, brains, and innovation.

    Pros

    Employee-centric - willingness to invest in the person for the benefit of the business. Solid leadership with several difference makers. Probably the right work/life balance. Excellent IP with several unique and proprietary data sets. New management from the outside looks promising.

    Cons

    Less intense than past experiences. Firm is likely about to see significant organizational change that often results in irrational behavior.

    Advice to Management

    Execute the structural changes you know the business needs. Everything is in place to do that and while change is hard, opportunities like this don't occur often - seize the day!!

    Pros

    Established company with solid technology and huge data sets.

    Cons

    Huge loss of technical knowledge and know how. Could only imagine what would happen if something happened and no one knew how to fix.

    Advice to Management

    Value employees to retain them longer in order to get well trained and knowledgeable people.

    Pros

    The most casual dress code ever. Shorts and flip-flops in the summer. Jeans and sneakers in the winter. The hours tend to be 9-5 and bonus structure isn't all that bad compared to other industries.

    Cons

    Poor selection of management as well as very little room for growth. People are promoted into management positions based on how they performed in their previous role rather than looking at the persons and determining if they have the skills necessary to manage properly. In addition there is poor communication regarding the direction the company is heading.

    Advice to Management

    Be more open with the direction of the company and start hiring managers based on their management capabilities, not their operational capabilities.

    Pros

    There was a wonderful team at the company until 2011. At that point, the senior management left and was replaced with a corporate functionary who had failed in a similar position at Thomson and Bloomberg. There are still some great people left, however, and he was just removed from his job. The product is still a great one.

    Cons

    It has become a much less entrepreneurial place and a lot more CYA activity.
