Anyone else hate banking lingo and make fun of it, but as soon as a discussion starts you say "we dont want to boil the ocean here". Fml. Whats your most despised finance phrase?

    Best place to work as a first year VC Analyst

    Pros

    In the first 6 months of your job, I guess you learn more than you learnt throughout your whole MBA. The Fenox training system makes you a real VC in no time, better than MBA in any business school. The Fenox training program helps you become a sound professional and helps you to work with your full potential

    Cons

    You get handed over lots of works and responsibilities, sometimes these tasks need extra effort and time

    Pros

    There are none, stay as far away as possible from this firm

    Cons

    I went through a few rounds of interviews only to end up with a "Japanese Partner" who described the job as a low pay, junior role despite what the job description says. Then he went on to explain "Japanese LPs invest without thinking about financial returns, they're deploying capital to SV just because it's a fad" - as if their investors are imbeciles. From there, never received a call or an email back. I'll be sure to convey your true sentiment to your LPs.

    Micromanagement is an understatement

    Pros

    Some great coworkers Learn about startups in the area

    Cons

    Micromanagement is extremely high. You can’t even walk away from a chair without being lectured about pushing it in. They watch everything the employees do and no ones opinion matters except the CEO who has his own minions that he has brainwashed himself. The management makes everyone feel awful by constantly belittling them. I mean, they wasted time on a hierarchical tree to make sure that everyone “knew their place.” Little to no benefits for the employees and awful pay. No way you could live on that salary in the Bay Area! It’s an insult. Horribly boring work. I felt like a slave and my brain was turning to mush because I was not able to use my skills and wasn’t being challenged in any way. All they do is have people make PowerPoints and present. You don’t need a college degree to work here, it’s simple, boring work. Fire the most qualified people for the job because they are intimidated by them.

    Pros

    Fenox has a well designed and well structured training program for all of its employees. This course has versatile contents that any freshers, mid or senior level employees will be directly benefit from this. Besides designated office work, Fenox has lots of extra curricular activities, which is not a common trend in other VC companies. These activities allow you to learn from professionals from different aspects and different sectors. Fenox has a nice environment, nice office space and more importantly good, helpful co-workers. It helps a person grow personally and professionally

    Cons

    As there are lots to do, sometimes you need to work extra hours and extra hard to finish all your designated tasks. Sometimes you need to travel a lot and work with different time zone branch offices to collaborate

    Pros

    Fenox offers the opportunity to work side by side with some of the best people in the industry. People like Bill Reichert and Anis Uzzaman are their partners. They are some of the best in the industry. Fenox organizes the event called Startup World Cup which happens in more than 30 countries in the world and many top celebrities from the tech world and VC industry give their valuable speeches which can be a crucial beneficial factor for the relevant people

    Cons

    Employees have to travel frequently and work extra hard for organizing the startup world cup event which can be pretty time consuming

    Pros

    You improve your work skills significantly in a very short period of time at Fenox. Fenox provides a step by step career progress package. Very effective for youngsters. You get to travel lots of countries if you want to as Fenox has direct branch offices in 8 different countries and presence in 14 different countries Fenox organizes Startup World Cup that happens in more than 30 countries around the world. Fenox VC is the only VC in Silicon Valley with such a global platform in place. They are a true global venture capital. Fenox offers a great global work environment with people from many different countries with diverse work experience. Fenox partners like Anis and Bill are well travelled and they have tons of global experience.

    Cons

    Fenox offers you high responsibilities for your age and experience to challenge you. Some people just might want to keep a low profile job and might not like Fenox style.

    Pros

    Even after joining in a mid level experienced position, I have noticed there are much to learn at Fenox. The training materials designed by the Fenox team is not only beneficial for the freshers but also for the people with 2-3 years experience in the industry. Fenox has employees all around the world, you get to blend in an environment where you get to interact with people from different dialects and region; for me, this particular point has been very primal in my growth as a venture capitalist.

    Cons

    As there are Fenox branches in different regions of the world, there can be time zone conflicts and you might find yourself working in odd hours outside of work; this can be very challenging
