    I worked at Cordium (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great culture, very kind people, always trying to improve their internal processes and external performance. Flexibility is another great point.

    Cons

    No big cons. Teams work on different activities, so it may make it hard to get to know all colleagues.

    Advice to Management

    Management already does a good job. Divisional managers are all inspiring leaders and they work well with their teams.

    Pros

    friendly firm with no backstabbing or snide remarks being made by others. Everyone is helpful and whilst it may not be the slick super machine everyone craves to work for it is a nice place to work. You are allowed to get involved in other areas and there is a real passion to promote from within. The management team seem to believe in the firm and want what is best for the firm and the staff - they actually seem to care.

    Cons

    There is definitely a true entrepreneurial feel to the place which also allows individuals to get involved in areas that they shouldn't do which can be annoying. There is a lack of structure and process but this is being addressed so a mini Con - yes the salaries are not the highest in the world but many people seem to compare the remuneration to the levels of IB's or hedge Funds who are out client - we service that industry not work for it so our remuneration is fair - albeit the lower end of fair.

    Advice to Management

    Process will make things easier in the long run.

    Pros

    For the most part, it's a great group of people. Fully stocked kitchen, frequent lunches/events, 1/2 day Fridays, and a lot of vacation days (more than you'll probably get anywhere else). Not a lot of micro-management, which means you can do most of your work independently/at a reasonable pace. Flexible/casual scheduling, and a casual dress code. These things can go a long way - however...

    Cons

    You get a lot of vacation days to offset the fact that the insurance benefits are pretty awful. There's a mentality from some members of management that is "do as I say, but not as I do." This can be frustrating. At times, it feels like the US arm of the company is run like a "family owned" business, rather than a global firm with nearly 200 employees. There seems to be a large divide when it comes to compensation. Some people are very well compensated, while others are barely making enough to live.

    Advice to Management

    Be more present - literally.

    Great benefits
    Half day Friday's in the summer

    Free weekly/monthly lunches.
    The occasional happy hour.

    Be more transparent with pay/promotions/bonuses and you won't have a turnover problem.

    I worked at Cordium full-time

    Pros

    -A lot of paid time off
    -Snacks
    -Some ability to WFH

    Cons

    -Lack of culture
    -Lack of management
    -Lack of communication

    Advice to Management

    Invest in good management and more communication with employees. Experience will vary based on the team and management, I found that distant management and not good communication between the team can lead to a lot of problems.
