    Pros

    Bagel Fridays, interesting work, transparent company financials, and woman executives have the ability to work a reduced schedule (40 hours per week).

    Cons

    The compensation is on the lower scale for a financial firm. Bonuses are used as a carrot stick for the long hours but are largely discretionary by the Directors.

    Thank you for your feedback. There are women executives that take advantage of a reduced schedule and flex-time, these are benefits that SRR offers to all employees. We hope that your new company ... More

    Pros

    #1 - The People. Only the brightest and best people work at SRR. The culture cultivates an atmosphere where we work as a team to accomplish great things. People are professional and kind to one another.

    #2 – The Opportunity. There is opportunity for every, single, employee who works here. They have are expected to seek it out (it’s not handed out, nor should it be.) There is truly an open door policy that if someone has a great idea or better way to do something, it happens.

    #3 – The Benefits. It seems that the list of employee benefits continues to grow. From great medical coverage, to 401(k) matching, sabbatical leave, discretionary time off policies to flexible work schedules in some areas. We are very fortunate.

    Cons

    We deliver superior client service; it can require long hours at a high pace at times. This isn’t necessarily a con but just part of the deal.

  7. Great place to start building a career

    Pros

    You can actually have an impact on the business. If you want to be challenged you will be and with that comes learning opportunity, exposure to new responsibilities, etc. Management is open to new ideas. Training program for new analysts. Offices are professional. Culture is good.

    Cons

    Long hours sometimes, but on par for industry.

    Advice to Management

    Keep being open to new ideas.

    Pros

    SRR provides a lot of opportunity to people who want opportunity. No red tape, you can get involved, and management is very accessable within your group.

    Cons

    You'll definitely work long hours sometimes.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be afraid to talk to other employees that aren't in your group. Encourage exploring other opportunities within the firm so as not to lose good people to competitors in other service lines.

    Pros

    Employees are highly competent, personable, and easy to work with. Lots of opportunities for advancement and involvement in different projects. Management's also pretty approachable and open about the operations of the company. Minimal bureaucracy, but slowly increasing.

    Cons

    Healthcare benefits are not as good as you would see in a larger company. Hours can be very long, especially when there's turnover. Deadlines can be tight and clients can be difficult.
    Almost everybody is an introvert so sometimes it feels isolating.

    Advice to Management

    The firm only hires people who fit in a particular personality box. It might be helpful to have a wider variety of personalities.

  10. Overall, great group within the business valuation division of the company

    Pros

    The various exposure you are able to get day one on the job. Initially the work flow was slow, but you really have to build your trust depending on who you're working under.

    Cons

    Long hours can be strenuous; however, that should be expected going into the field. Other than that, nothing else to complain about.
