      Pros

      It is good for single, recently graduated people. Insurance is free if you are single.

      Cons

      If you are looking for work-life balanced opportunities look elsewhere. No training, paternity leave is 3 days, remote working was not accepted before the pandemic.

      Work with people who are very knowledgeable.

      Pros

      Good learning experience as you will get exposure to the full process. Globally, employees are pleasant to work with.

      Cons

      Long hours, low team morale, average pay. Cost cutting galore - there is little to no consideration of the repercussions.

      Pros

      Paxus is a pretty solid system that handles IR and partner allocations in 1 platform. Gained exposure to different fund structures and financial products

      Cons

      There isnt any formal training program. The position will really test your problem solving and critical thinking skills due to there being very little hands on guidence. The salary stinks, but if you continue to learn new things and speak on your experiences, then it isnt a lost cause.

      Hostile environment, especially for women

      Nov 21, 2014 - Anonymous Employee in Red Bank, NJ
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Unfortunately there aren't many to mention; if you work in the Red Bank, NJ office - you get free parking. Other than that, they discourage personal and professional growth, your opinion doesn't matter, there are no company values, there is no integrity.

      Cons

      Because they are headquartered in Bermuda and the US offices are under an LLC designation, they can avoid almost all FINRA regulations as far as AML is concerned and/or they alter their records. This is despite the fact that providing the administrative side of AML for the managers is a part of a managers' service agreement. While employees are entitled to vacations, the support staff are sabotaged so that all the work they've been waiting to be approved to be done is ready for them the day before their vacation starts and telling them they will have to do everything it takes to get it done on time, or they will have to amend their vacation. Not to mention, all of the Director-level men are arrogant, rude and abusive.
