      Pros

      Transparency. Every team member's input is valued. Extremely talented team. Depending on your interests and work style, there are different work opportunities across multiple verticals and products.

      Cons

      None to speak of as far as I am concerned.

      Good first job, but stayed for the people

      Pros

      I first started here as a Research Analyst. It was a good first job out of undergrad. The company is growing at a high rate, and with the relatively high turnover, there is opportunity for fast promotions. You can quickly gain skills in project management, client relationships, and other soft skills that are transferable to any management job. But in my opinion, the best part of the job was collaboratively working (and venting) with people my age. It was a good first job, but I stayed for the people.

      Cons

      - The lack of diversity - Slow response from leadership (if any) to employee feedback - Varying work standards and expectation between different teams

      Ok for 1-2 Years

      Feb 19, 2021 - Project Manager

      CEO Approval

      Pros

      - Good work life balance at the associate level, but see cons. - Work with young, intelligent, and driven coworkers

      Cons

      - Poor work-life balance once you become more client-facing. I found myself consistently online from around 8 am to whenever my email stopped churning (could sometimes be around midnight). When we were in the office I quite literally felt chained to my desk from 8:45 to 5:45, it was uncommon for people to take actual lunch breaks away from their desk. - Limited room for growth past the PM level. There's really no chance to develop new skills once you've taken ownership of an account. The only thing they really want to focus on is having you squeeze as much revenue out of your given account. -Repetitive. After a while at the job, it can boil down to a pretty simple formula where you don't necessarily feel mentally stimulated. This paired with little room to grow new skills/career development can make it feel like a ticking time bomb in terms of your ability to land a new role afterward.

      Pros

      Short term upward mobility, had a fantastic boss. The people are fantastic and for the most part bright, you get good phone exposure, ok pay in NYC for your first couple of years out of college. Very fun culture - start-up like and young, people are fun and smart.

      Cons

      Long term upward mobiity/pay rewards, same day to day responsibility, politics decide the accounts you get which in turn impacts the amount of commission you get. They like to give you more responsibility without actually increasing your wages substantially. The work isn't very rewarding for the most part, the clients aren't very nice.
