      The pay is very competitive, which is what initially sucks you in. The people are great. The tuition reimbursement is really cool. Opportunities for stock.


      One of the most unprofessional places I’ve worked. The executives create a toxic environment that cascades. Yelling, sending heated emails with a dozen people on copy, manipulation, favoritism, all common behaviors. My entire department turned over in a couple years and I’m pretty sure the person who drove them away didn’t even get a slap on the wrist. Tuns out they had driven off many before. No care for employees, work/life balance was nonexistent, forced to work on what was supposed to be paid holidays off, and executives forced us back in the office during the worst of Covid while skimping on sanitation. Technology is decades behind, causing a ton of tedious, manual work that gets audited, and you get chewed out if a mistake is found. Always a day late and a dollar short on staffing.


      Thank you for taking the time to provide your feedback. We are sorry you had this experience. HR has elevated your concerns to the appropriate leadership team to look for opportunities of improvement.

        Great products to sell. Good pay and benefits.


        Having a good work life balance can be difficult.

        Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback. We are happy to hear your comments around our pay, benefits, and product portfolio. We truly appreciate your candor around the topic of work life balance and we would recommend reaching out to your local HR representative to have conversation around your concerns.

      Financial Representative

      Hello all need some interview advice. So on my U5 it shows I was terminated, No reason listed, never broke any rules etc. I actually had a story made up about me from someone at that company and they believed it. Long story short, job & family services got involved, I won and they paid me a little bit of money. However, inevitably the question will come up “so why did you leave x company” how would you go about answering this? I’m torn between just being honest or talking past it.


      Postdoctoral Researcher

      Today HR called me for telling me that they are interested in hiring me (we discussed salary and starting date to draft the contract) but they have to wait till end of next week since by company policy the position has to stay x days opened in the internal website. They do not expect anyone to apply but they can send me the contract only by the 10 Oct. Should I sent a thank you note again after this conversation?



      For all people working in Big4 and other big companies when the job application asks for the local language how true is it? My local office asks for the local language in their job postings but I know there are some people who do not speak it. If I apply for a position that asks for the local language what are my chances?
