Current Employee - Business Analyst in Rockville, MD
Current Employee - Business Analyst in Rockville, MD
Disapproves of CEO

Pros

A lot of highly capable people. Resonable Salary and benefits, annual bonus system. Company is highly visible in the financial markets.

Cons

Little to no upward mobility. Management is very top down and does not listen to front line folks. Long term business strategy is nearly non existent. Company prefers to hire from outside rather than promote from within. Performance appraisal system is ineffective and does not accurately tie performance to business objectives.

Advice to Management

Use the talent you have before you hire from outside. Hire more do'ers instead of Sr Executives. Put forth specific goals that can be tied to realistic accomplishments at the end of year. Revamp the employee performance management system to truely tie goals to accomplishments.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    It is a very laid-back atmosphere and the level of work is challenging. It can get somewhat monotonous with specific filings but overall very interesting work.

    Cons

    As mentioned above, can get a little boring because filing the same types of documents. However, each examination brings new types of transactions.
