    Pros

    Some of the most passionate people here - understanding, capable & focused on delivering material results; Always willing to self-improve/change, and not stay focused on the past methodology

    Cons

    Some growing pains while transitioning from small to mid-size enterprise; still catching up on the industry averages in terms of compensation, reward, growth, mobility, etc.

    I have been working at Dealogic full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great people, fairly flexible schedule, mgmt has attempted to make the office more laid back. Most team members are extremely helpful and will assist you with more difficult tasks

    Cons

    8:30-6 is an outdated time frame to work when the firm is not an investment bank. A 30min differential makes a big difference to employees.

    Advice to Management

    Be open to change and more flexibility. Many people leave and look for the next opportunity because of holiday, time off perceptions. Many tech firms and financial services firms encourage innovation. Connect senior mgmt projects to a broader employee group

    Pros

    The people. My manager was amazing, and my teammates were incredible. Commercial teams were passionate about their work and their clients... not much else to say.

    Cons

    It was clear as day that Exec. Mgmt was not interested in sustaining my dept. We weren't paid as well as others, it was much more difficult to get promoted, and I found myself performing responsibilities that any other company would pay $20k higher. Even other departments paid that much more for people to perform those responsibilities. So I left, and months later I found that they were moving all development efforts to their Budapest office.

    Advice to Management

    Get it together...

    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.
