Pros

Great compensation, ample opportunities for advancement, every contribution is valued, friendly atmosphere, collaborative culture, meritocracy, very good training program, and taking part in recruiting is easy and fun.

Cons

Managers, while adept, are not always skilled in their managerial duties. It is not uncommon to encounter a lower-level manager who is inaccessible and/or too wrapped up in his own work to effectively lead his team.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    free food is not bad; also the coffee is free; don't have to pay premiums for healthcare which is nice

    Cons

    scheduled work hours are eight am to six pm and the pay is not too attractive for an educated new yorker

    Advice to Management

    I would cut back on hours and increase pay to increase morale and lower the turnover of key employees; more training opportunities


  2. "Underpaid, but great benefits. If you started prior to 2002 or bring lots of experience you earn a high salary."

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Great Benefits, Great people that work here, Amazing R&D team, Great Sales Work, If you come in with experience you will get pay very well. R&D, Sales, News, Trading Solutions, are considered income producing side of the company.

    Cons

    If you work in other departments you will get a lot less benefits, low pay and more micromanaged. Its like working in a completely different company. Upper management does not move, so you are better off moving to another company if you want to move around. When you do move up, your salary does not increase until end of year or sometimes not at all.

    Advice to Management

    Employees should have the ability to get tuition reimbursement regardless of what departments they work under. A flag should be raised if a manager has less than 10% of her budget dedicated to tuition reimbursement. A mandatory % should be done on Ex, manager, ex.5% or something like small but that gives employee a chance to grow.
