    Pay is excellent compared to other financial institutions, 4 weeks vacation (SVP), comradery, execs try to have open door policy, work life balance

    Horrendous hours, lots of politics, top execs have no idea on what it takes to get your job done, bonuses are decreasing, moving to lower cost locations outside of US

    Advice to Management

    Create stability for your committed and dedicated employees, understand the life / job responsibilities of your senior managers, do not treat people like a number

    Like the industry I work in and the job I do. Salary and benefits are good and great team work among line staff

    Pros

    Managers have opportunity to make impact for selves and the firm. They are provided training and guidance to enhance dept controls and productivity.

    Cons

    The firm is in a constant cost saving mode and so it makes it difficult to retain talent in the NY/NJ area. The long term strategy is to take jobs openings out of the NY area and move them to low cost centers.
