Doesn't Recommend
Disapproves of CEO

Pros

No micro-managing. It looks good on a resume. You can get a little training on their Bloomberg terminal if you want.

Cons

The MD's didn't care about anyone but themselves. It was hard to come in every day and greet people who didn't care about your work

Advice to Management

I would ask that they try a little harder to provide a position experience for those who choose to spend their time there.

    Pros

    Very hands off. Allowed you to work independantly and treated you as an asset. Had a good corporate culture there.

    Cons

    Other than the fact it went bankrupt? It seemed to be the lesser of it's peers. It was driven by one business and when that failed, it did too.

    Advice to Management

    Management should have diversified the business ventures to which it allocated capital. There also should have been a better recruitment program


  2. "Great first job"

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    The people make great co-workers and has a small firm feel. The parties weren't cheezy corporate but fun, that you wanted to be apart of.

    Cons

    It reminded me of the t.v. show, Mad Men, when men had certain bigger roles and woman reported to the men. All men are brokers and all woman are sale assistants, period. The sales assistants don't have much room for career growth and at times, don't feel as appreciated as they should. There is also very little diversity regards to race.

    Advice to Management

    Be more connected with lower assistants as they might have more influence than you think.
