    A good company

    Executive Assistant (Current Employee) New York, NY

    ProsThey have a really good work life balance. The office culture is cool. You can wear jeans depending on the department you are in and on occasions you may be in the elevator with a big executive or a music star. The company is very verbal in the changes that are being made. You would hear from the CEO on several occasions.

    ConsNone, its a great company to work for. They have great benefits.

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement can be a bit snooty and will pass you straight in the hallway.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Good for experience but long road to financial success

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsI had a rewarding experience as far as diversity of opportunities goes. Lots of projects, decent amount of empowerment, great colleagues. Benefits were good as was time off policy.

    ConsPolitics could be rough and the policy of starting salary compared to what should be paid based on workload and achievements was frustrating.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe more upfront with employees about promotions and pay increases. Be realistic about workload and expectations and properly reward those that deserve to be rewarded.
