I worked at Dealogic full-time

Pros

-No overtime
-No pressure
-Take your time to finish your work
-Job is very stable
-Pay is good considering the amount of workload

Cons

-Extremely high turnover rate. Imagine a small company like this, having 4-5 ppl leaving in a same month is rather common in only 1 office branch.
-Pay is very very low if you are the hardwork person.
-The way they rate you is in a black box. You'll get the same rating whether you work extremely hard or you get the minimum work done.
-Talented ppl don't stay long since they don't get appreciated by the company.
-Company is not willing to hire senior employees so the quality of work goes down dramatically.
-No career advancement.
-Micromanagement.

Advice to Management

It is understandable that hiring more junior ppl will save you more money. You get what you paid for.

    "Dealogic"

    Pros

    Now that I've moved on, I feel freer to express my thoughts on the company. Any review worth its salt begins and ends with Tom Fleming. His commitment to innovating how banks operate in the capital markets is as absolute as it is honest. He’s extremely intelligent. His vision and intensity deserve considerable credit for building Dealogic into what it is today.

    Cons

    Dealogic’s cultural and structural deficits flow directly from Tom's authoritarian micromanaging leadership style and volatility. The irony here is really first-class, in that these flaws make Tom himself the bottleneck constricting innovation. He runs Dealogic like a $10m company rather than the $100m+ company it is. He wastes an inordinate amount of time on small-fry decisions that any self-respecting VP would delegate downstream. His authoritarianism has bred a species of manager who are out-and-out sycophants, with a remarkable aptitude for claiming credit and avoiding responsibility. They’re more concerned with avoiding upsetting him than thinking critically about the business. Everyone’s loath to have that hard conversation with him, which often makes him the last to know. An excessively punitive and political culture results. It's what prevents the articulation and execution of big-picture initiatives, and even basic business planning on existing ones. That's the difference between a $100m company and a billion-dollar one.

    I worked at Dealogic full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Office Location,reasonable hours,lower raking staff tend to be polite to one another. Good if you need to pad your resume when experience is lacking or filling the time till a better opportunity comes along

    Cons

    No opportunity for advancement , Senior and middle managers play favorites resulting in a highly political environment,low pay, competency or ability means you are marked for failure as you are a threat to most managers.

    Advice to Management

    clean house start terminating the incompetent managers.Raise employee pay otherwise sell out to a larger competitor
