No opinion of CEO

Pros

Good benefits
 Great learning experience if paired with right senior
Exposure to multiple departments
great access to communicate with managers and executives

Cons

pay
no growth
manger was personal assistant the year before I join (no finance experience)
Because manager had no experience forced to work late, 8:30 - 8/9 during close (thought this was the norm until I left)
received senior analyst responsibilities as a financial analyst but not compensated

Advice to Management

management is completely politics. Managers hold their positions because of their relationship with the executives, not based on education or experience

    Pros

    good products. good location in an interesting neighborhood rather than in midtown. good brand name for your resume.

    Cons

    no support or mentoring. very little contact with manager, even during first month. IT technology is old, not even close to cutting edge. company divisions are very siloed. no one seems to "own" anything and getting decision made is like going in circles.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Good benefits and unlimited sick days. Soho location is good. They have a cafeteria upstairs which alwasys works out well if you're hungry

    Cons

    Work distribution is pretty bad. I work an average of 10 hour days. When ever I have to walk around to other floors I see half the company on Facebook, where I do not even have time to take a proper lunch break. The pay is aweful.
