    I worked at Dealogic full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good place to start your career. Allows you to explore your ideas as well as implement them.

    Good medical coverage.

    Cons

    Used to be good company before Carlyle acquired it.

    - Most of dev work is outsourced to Budapest due to cheap labour. So if you are in dev, you either end up being merged or quit your job.
    - Lot of smart people leaving or are made to leave.
    - Cross team collaboration / working can be challenging esp. when everyone wants to show / meet their numbers.

    Advice to Management

    Stop outsourcing to Budapest and keep the talent.
    Invest in top employees and PAY them WELL !

    Pros

    The company has some events to engage employees and the office is set up in a way that different departments can interact with each other easily.

    Cons

    There is poor communication from upper management in some departments and there aren't many opportunities for growth.

    Advice to Management

    Be clear about your expectations and when there are any changes, inform your team so that everyone is on the same page. Also, make your employees feel valuable and appreciated.

    I worked at Dealogic (More than a year)

    Pros

    A good work life balance and some good people in there.

    Cons

    The firm has pride itself in having divisions separate and distant from each other. The pay is low, which leads to a huge turnover rate. The fact that people who are still working in there after more than 4 years makes me believe that there is nothing going for them. The people are so distant from one another and some of those people are rude and disrespectful.

    Advice to Management

    If you want to be competitive in the market, pay a higher salary. Keeping employees working from 9 to 6 will make things worse. The town halls are of no use if you don't make change.

    Pros

    -Free fruit twice a week (limit 2 per person)*

    -Miserable, disengaged workforce with high turnover
    -No innovation or collaboration

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying to address engagement on the surface with pointless meetings while taking no actions and ignoring the fact that your disengaged employees are underpaid and overworked.

    Pros

    Some good people. Some useless people. A decent place to start out of college so that you can interview for real jobs. Also can lend itself to decent networking opportunities.

    Cons

    Horrible management at every level, somehow. They do not look to help you diversify or improve your skill-sets, unfortunately.

    Advice to Management

    Find somewhere else to work where you aren't miserable.

    Office environment, work life balance

    Cons

    Unprofessional management, unrealistically slow decision making.
    Outdated, ancient entry systems, with only the desire of fixing them, no results.
    Employees are being asked their opinions 3 times per year, and there is never a follow up, or action plan.

    Advice to Management

    Get a grip
