    I worked at KBRA full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great Company to work at. People are energetic and culture is laid back and easy going. bi-annual promotion system allows quick promotion for right individuals . Flat structure with friendly and fantastic management team. The company has experienced explosive growth for the past years and will probably continue to do so.

    Cons

    Company is growing but some areas are still short staffed. Analysts unfortunately are overwhelmed and end up taking work load meant for two-three people. With an exception of CMBS department, many departments seem to do both new deal and surveillance with little resources or infrastructure.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people in the right area. Managements are on hiring frenzy on getting analysts doing new deals to hit the annual number and beat other departments. But these new hires will also be stuck doing surveillance. More new deals they do, more bogged down they are without someone doing surveillance for them.

    Positive Outlook

    I worked at KBRA full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I enjoyed my colleagues, my supervisors, and management quite a bit. They have a very welcoming culture, and nearly every day you get to leave work at the office.

    Cons

    The work is a little repetitive, but if you can develop a solid routine you will thrive.

    Advice to Management

    Working downtown, as opposed to the suburbs, would be huge for so many young adults.
