    Loved it!

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at ThinkEquity

    Pros

    The people were great and I felt that it was a fun place to work! The clients were also interesting growth companies from a variety of industries across the economy.

    Cons

    Economy was bad! Being a small firm in a down economy created unique challenges that included lay offs, lost business, and low morale at many points. There was also probably less firm loyalty given the limits of the brand.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Good luck to all involved

    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at ThinkEquity full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Cool office in nice building

    Cons

    Treats all employees - from analysts to senior managing directors terribly. No one is happy. The majority of the employees are underpaid and underappreciated. Hard work and taking initiative is not rewarded nor recognized.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior management is uninspiring and fails to motivate. Focus in keeping your current employees happy and stop spending so much time and effort on recruiting. Retention is an issue. You count on the pedigree of current employees to hire new ones - what's going to happen when everyone leaves?

    Pros

    Great team from top-bottom
    In a great industry space
    Senior management are making moves
    Great opportunities in the tech industry

    Cons

    This bank operates on Bulge Bracket Long hours but pay remains flat
    Pay should be adjusted more accordingly to this end
