    "A smaller & better than average specialized consulting firm"

    I have been working at Chainalytics full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Laid-back work environment, challenging projects, intelligent co-workers, better than average work-life balance, salary/promotion review every 6 months.

    Cons

    Salaries are slightly lower than for similar positions at larger firms. The trade off for working at a smaller firm is that there are many more opportunities to advance within the company and also to interact with clients + the senior leadership team.

    Advice to Management

    As the company continues to grow, make sure to maintain the firm's current culture & values.

    I worked at Chainalytics full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    The people and culture are fun. There is a lot of flexibility and freedom over projects. Travel perks are nice. You can progress in job title quickly.

    Cons

    They consistently under pay. Projects are often under-scoped or under-staffed. Some of the work is very tactical rather than analytical - clients' problems are caused by bad data, and archaic business practices/systems, but you have to produce quality solutions rather than pushing back to the customer. The leadership can be old-school and tactical as well.

    Advice to Management

    Change the job title naming and pay your employees industry rates.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Chainalytics full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Best work/life balance. No micro managing. Company has a very solid reputation within supply chain niche consulting community. Extremely intelligent middle management (even if their actual managerial skills are subpar) and consultants.

    Cons

    Most people worked from home so no real culture per se. Onboarding process is extremely poor and initial expectations are not clearly defined. Below average pay for the level of intelligence being employed. Hot bed for other companies to recruit from due to lack of compensation.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more. Enforce some sort of office attendance to begin to build some kind of culture for new employees.

    I worked at Chainalytics full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    the co-workers are super nice, they provide snacks and is a collaborative environment

    people are overworked in the backend, the front end-sales personnel are more valued and receive more perks for half the effort.

    Advice to Management

    invest in building a better bigger admin team, it will help all aspects and be more efficient in the long run

    I have been working at Chainalytics full-time

    Pros

    Hard workers, very intelligent people that want to push the envelope. Allows employees to try new projects / opportunities and flex some brain muscles.

    Cons

    Not very diverse, very few women in senior level positions. As a firm that tries to differentiate itself from other consulting firms, there are still too many "old world consulting" cultural flaws.

    Pros

    Interesting projects and a very diverse base of clients. The company has great service offerings that span the end-to-end supply chain.

    Cons

    Significantly under market salaries (20-30% lower). No annual review and no annual raises. Inability to attract and hire top talent as total compensation is too low. No training or education offered to new hires.

    Advice to Management

    Stop changing the compensation model and implement an annual review/raise cycle.
