    Loved it!

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThe 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.

    ConsEconomy 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 Senior ManagementGood luck to all involved

    – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Beneath the Surface....

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsCool office in nice building

    ConsTreats 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 Senior ManagementSenior 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?
