    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Great people to work with. A bit of a challenge to understand the inner workings, but once clear they remain consistent. Fun office environment.

    Cons

    Limited opportunities for growth, but people that are dedicated to sales and/or research and want to remain in those concentrations will have lots of exposure and experience.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize talent and reward it so that more people want to stay; continue fostering the work environment and make it enjoyable for people.

    I have been working at DeMatteo Monness full-time

    Pros

    Very little pressure from management. Nobody micromanaging your daily activities.

    Cons

    Top heavy - senior management makes too much and does too little.

    "serious perks initially overshadow cons/shortcomings of company"

    Current Employee - Junior Researcher in New York, NY
    Current Employee - Junior Researcher in New York, NY

    Pros

    DM has some serious perks: company amex; breakfast, lunch and snack time served (before the downturn); employees entertain hedge fund clients at really fun events (clubs/restaurants etc). Work for a researcher is uncomplicated - becomes boring REALLY quickly. Overall though you feel as though you are part of a great family so the tight knit culture makes it a great and fun place to work.

    Cons

    Not great work life balance. You get sucked in to doing EVERYTHING DM. Every night of the week is an event you are expected to attend till ludicrous hours (midnight-4am) and be at your desk by 7am the next morning. Almost no ability to grow within the company. Ive seen employees stay for years and get next to no promotion or a false increase in title with no increase in responsibilities or pay.

    Advice to Management

    Management pays themselves ridiculously well and then claims to have no profit left over to give employees a bonus. It is very sharky at this firm.

    Pros

    Great people. Decent salary. Nice environment.

    Long hours. A lot of the great employee benefits have now been cut.

    Advice to Management

    Employee benefits go a long, long way.
