I have been working at Think Finance full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Entrepreneurial. Fast-paced. Lacks corporate bureaucracy. Environment where one can work hard, generate value and experience significant personal and professional growth. You get the leash to excel - it's up to you what you do with it. Lives the values.

Cons

Need to be comfortable in fast-paced entrepreneurial environment. Life-balance varies by functional area - depends on leader.

Advice to Management

Strive to maintain values as company scales. Don't lose entrepreneurial spirit and continue to treat employees as well as we do our customers.

    Pros

    Never boring, casual atmosphere, take care of their employees. CEO and senior management promote company values and ethics throughout. Fun place to work with lots of perks, including catered, healthy, cheap lunches, a gym downstairs, and quarterly town halls.

    Cons

    Growing so fast that maintaining space and culture are issues

    Advice to Management

    Be sure that contractors have a face-to-face interview before hiring

    Pros

    Better Pay than other companies

    Cons

    1. CIO's actions and words conflict.
    2. People are treated as resource because of which good people are leaving and bad are getting fired. Average people and new employees are shocked with number of exists every week and are left guessing why so many are leaving.
    3. Technically non compitant management layer / Directors are not capable to spur innovation, confidence and get respect for their team. Very few Directors whose absence will be noticed.
    4. Reactionary, run behind issues culture. Lack of ownership and accountability.
    5. Premature hiring process.
    --> New hires getting fired in less than a month. Why would someone hire such people at the first place.
    --> Management level employees are hired without consensus. How will they get support from team?

    Advice to Management

    1. Think Big / Innovate means higher risk appatite. People are one of the big differentiator between ordinary and extraordinary companies. Nourishing environment needs to created to spur innovation. People should feel confidant that they wont be fired for a mistake otherwise risk appetite will be very low and that means no innovation.
    2. Recognize people. When was the last time some one who is good was promoted? People should feel that if they perfom good they can get promoted and they do not have find another job to move up.
    3. Proactive planning. Plan for future growth proactively in terms of infrastructure, org structure, people, processes and benefits.
    4. Better utilize available resources / People. Promte, train, challenge them. Expect best and those who deliver it, offer them best.
    5. change the "lets have meeting" culture. There are far too many meetings and war rooms. They are more considered a place to get free lunch ticket than fix the critical issue.
    6. Take some actions to prevent good people from leaving. Whatever is the reason, when many people leaves, several join them without a good reason.
