Disapproves of CEO

Pros

comp, exciting work, middle of financial industry's darkest moments

Some senior management better than others, good, smart people to work with

Cons

It went out of business, threatening to bring the whole financial industry down with it. Some senior management was abusive.

Advice to Management

Next time, cut off the pipeline, sell high, have political connections (a la Goldman Sachs) and don't allow your fund investors to make margin calls.

    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.


  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.
