      The winning combo of bureaucracy & under resourcing

      Pros

      -benefits -absurd PTO -2 weeks mandatory time off for audit

      Cons

      This place has the winning combo of absurd amounts of bureaucracy combined with major underresourcing. What does that mean? That means you’ll spend 6 months jumping through hoops (time you don’t have because you’re severely understaffed) to get the tiniest change made only to be knocked down by someone in Paris who ‘doesn’t like it.’ All the time? Gone. Any reason why it got shut down? Nope. Any ability to state your case? Nope. Working so hard to get absolutely nothing done makes working for this company awful. On top of the fact that there is literally zero work life balance. You’re expected to work at all hours of the need arises. There is no mobility whatsoever and if there is, it will be given to an external hire. Promotions are only permitted once a year. Would not recommend working here to my worst enemy.

      No opportunity for career growth No upward mobility If promoted your raise doesn't occur until the following year. You work for the time you are promoted until the following March before your pay is increased. NY controls Denver and treats the office like a satellite office Pay is worst in industry and well below market rate
