    -Snacks
    -Best work life balance
    -Good compensation if you "meet expectations"
    -Name brand recognition and very good experience with the software
    -Best benefits of anywhere
    -Can transition to ANY role within the firm
    -Great place to have a start to end career with good support behind you
    -Everyone listens to your ideas and encourages you to act on them

    Cons

    -Do not work a finance job; this is a technology company first
    -Compensation is not built of effort or experience but rather of how long you have been in the company
    -Very poor compensation advancement structure
    -Lack of career progression
    -Difficult to transition to a different job (in finance) due to lack of useful experience
    -Career/Experience is very heavily dictated by your manager

    -Potential to get stuck at your current role

    Advice to Management

    -Lead by example
    -Don't tell employees you are hiring less workers and compensating current workers the same (expecting the current workers to pick up the slack with extra compensation)

    Pros

    There are so many smart people at this firm that pretty much anything can get done. The product this company makes sells itself, it is truly amazing.

    Cons

    Middle management is often breathing down your neck and in my opinion focusing in areas that do not improve the customer experience. Quantity seems more important than quality.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time focusing on the customer rather than your own employees. A happy customer is one that is pleased with the product, a repeat customer is one that is happy with the service.
