    I worked at Ascendant Capital full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I really got the most out of working at Ascendant

    If you are smart and you work hard, you will be presented with many opportunities to carve your own path, leaving you with skill sets that your peers elsewhere might not have. I learned an incredible amount.

    You will also be paid very well

    Cons

    Nothing that you wouldn't see out of every other smaller business with a startup culture - this company isn't for clock watchers and mouth breathers:

    1. It can be hectic at times (very fast paced, changing priorities).

    2. Some have mentioned this expectation of long hours. In reality, not when I had left - there were people leaving at normal times.

    3. Lack of processes (relative to a large corporation)- again, this happens with all small businesses.

    Advice to Management

    Certain executives could have been empowered more to pull the trigger on decisions in the absence of the official decision makers.

    Sometimes it pays to slow down to then speed up even faster later.
