    Pros

    The hours were nice for a financial firm. 8:30 to 6:30 with an hr of lunch. The environment was not very cut throat as compared to other places. There were a lot of older workers who were willing to help understand.

    Cons

    Sometimes the promotion decisions were made on favoritism rather than ability. To move up faster you have to know someone a few levels up. Also, it is near impossible to talk to an MD, they are treated like gods, which leads to an environment where people are afraid to ask questions or raise concerns

    Advice to Management

    Reduce bureaucracy and create flatter org structures where an AVP would have access to the MD. Which will make people feel like they are making a difference and also give them a way to express their concerns to proper authorities.

    Pros

    Great people to work with, everybody was driven, hard working and intelligent. A great environment to learn and understand the financial industry.

    Cons

    A lot of politics. You have to be extremely political and competitive to get ahead, even if that means you have to step on some toes....

    Advice to Management

    Move away from the politics, focus on the actual work that is being done. Offer employees some room for growth.
