    Pros

    It's an easy job, the management seems to care about taking care of its employees.

    Cons

    It's hourly work and you don't get a lot of individual praise.

    Advice to Management

    More praise would be great.


  5. "Heavy office politics, only happen in a NGO where no one is incentive to work"

    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at FGI Research full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Friendly working environment among analysts and associate level. But quite on the opposite for the middle level to manangement team.

    Cons

    There is no career path in such organization for a financial analyst. The learning curve is not steep. Most of the time juniors have to learn how to spin between different interest groups within that tiny company.
