      Sold out at the top - well done!

      Pros

      High energy atmosphere - smart co-workers, good opportunity for client contacts.

      Cons

      Like many startups Genscape was a leader in its space but the usual pressure to cut costs, extend subscriptions to perk up the numbers, and sell at the top of the market before the downturn took its toll on the client base kicked in. Serious Bro Culture was off putting but WoodMac acquisition will replace it with something else. The Genscape name has been officially absorbed into the WoodMac branding machine.

      A discriminatory place with a HUGE drinking culture

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Fosters an attitude of a fun place to work.

      Cons

      Employees are constantly drinking, in the office, etc., and I was looked down upon when I didn't participate. This place has a false sense of inclusivity and "fun-loving" culture. But behind that façade is another cut-throat environment, where people don't really care about you. It was a cliquey place that took me back to junior high -- minus the drinking.

      Politics and no idea what they are trying to do!

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      It used to be a very nice place to work once upon a time!

      Cons

      Full of politics, they always let go of good talent and make people who are completely useless as lead. The management doesn't care about anyone except those who are "Yes men". One manager gives you a title and after that manager leaves, the title is taken back. Filled with juniors and those thinking they know everything. High attrition rate due to unsustainable work environment. And yes by the way no career growth, just stagnate.

      Pros

      - Great office + gym - Some of the smartest people I’ve had the pleasure of working with - Opportunities to work on really novel, interesting problems - great place to start an an analyst if you want to work in energy sector

      Cons

      The acquisition by Wood Mackenzie ruined what used to be one of the coolest, most innovative companies in Louisville. One of their first initiatives was layoffs. After that, they began rebranding the company and stripping it of everything that made it unique. I used to be so proud to work there. Now I wouldn’t recommend any one to work there.

      Good place to train you for the energy industry

      Jan 20, 2021 - Analyst 
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      You work with extremely smart people and will learn lots of key skills that will serve you well as you move through the industry. Very casual, flexible environment. Super fun start up culture. Very generous pto. Market exposure without having to work the hours of a trader.

      Cons

      Not a lot of upward growth potential. Lower pay relative to the industry (but with far less pressure). Some verticals have more turnover than others due to poaching, which is understandable given the lack of upward mobility.

      Pros

      Work-life balance, nice office, young office culture, good exposure to clients in the energy market/opportunity to learn the industry

      Cons

      No upwards mobility, minimal investment in training or up-skilling employees, constant turnover, management invests in flashy new platforms that add little value while the more critical platforms degrade, culture can at times feel like a frat house, evaluations are completely subjective

      Best Marketing I’ve Ever Experienced

      Feb 5, 2021 - Senior Manager 
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      There’s no question in my mind: marketing transformed this company, creating a massive amount of positive press coverage whereas we previously had very little and by creating a strong flow of sales leads. The head of marketing led efforts to create a multi-million dollar commercial partnership and, while initially resisted by many, it became one of the largest, if not the largest, deal year after year. He walked the talk and we saw results quickly and often! It was simply the best marketing I’ve ever experienced before or since.

      Cons

      The culture was, at times, overly political and a challenge to navigate but otherwise a great place to work!
