    I have been working at CIM Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Rare combination of Entrepreneurial atmosphere with institutional financial capacity. Fair compensation, new modern corporate office and many employee perks. Collection of very smart people. A lot of autonomy at senior levels assuming you earn trust of principals, although this may vary by department

    Cons

    Experiencing growing pains in terms of instituting policies and procedures. But this is to be expected given the firm's rapid growth and success

    Advice to Management

    Don't let go of that entrepreneurial spirit as the company grows and evolves. Reward and recognize strong employees, especially those who demonstrate loyalty, to limit turnover during a hot job market
