    I worked at HedgeServ full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    If you’re a hard worker and a team player than this is the ideal work environment. It’s easy enough to move up the ranks if you’re a hard worker. Fantastic health benefits both for you and your family. Still has a startup feel even though they’ve moved beyond this phase.

    Cons

    People who complain are my biggest pet peeve.

    Pros

    More than willing to try out new methodologies to deliver better results for their clients. At HedgeServ an entrepreneurial mindset will get you far. Co-workers are very encouraging and supportive. Management provides firm guidance to keep you on track. A good job overall.

    Cons

    Currently in that awkward phase of growth where they’re not a startup, but not exactly a massive corporation. You could say they’re going through all the growing pains that a company in this position typically experiences.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at HedgeServ full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Coworkers can be great. Money is good.

    Cons

    Managers are punitive and demoralizing. The CEO knows and tolerates it. It's a culture of fear that pretends to be open. Managers scream obscenities in meetings. It's not a healthy place to be or grow in your career. Their ways of developing applications are pretty dated. Requirements are anybody's guess. The slew of positive reviews came after management was worried about their Glassdoor rating so take those with a grain of salt.

    I have been working at HedgeServ full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The compensation is exceptional. That’s one of the first things you’ll notice about this company. The next is how fast-paced the work environment is. Don’t apply if you’re allergic to hard work. You’ll also notice that the people you’re working alongside are incredibly smart. Probably smarter than you are. The advantage to that is that over time some of those smarts may eventually rub off on you.

    Cons

    Improving communication amongst teams needs to be a priority.

    I worked at HedgeServ full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I have no pros to mention about this place.

    Cons

    Nepotism. Nepotism. Relatives of the owner get jobs and carte blanche to do what they want. Harassment of female employees is standard even in the #MeToo era because it's tolerated from the top down. I was propositioned, insulted, and had crude insults thrown my way more days than not. Human Resources did absolutely nothing to protect me no matter what happened. My story is going to be told and JPK & company will be exposed for what they are.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at HedgeServ full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    beer fridge, casual dress code

    Cons

    You either drink the koolaid and become a caricature of unprofessionalism (except no one is laughing) or you spend your days counting the hours until you go home. The vast majority of team leads have no clue how to manage, train, or retain people. Some of the leads are openly OK with that, others just don't know any better. The turnover rate is very high because there is no career path besides being stuck under these obnoxious managers/directors. The severe lack of accountability ensures that inadequate solutions are perfectly acceptable and fully supported until nobody is left that can remember how or why it exists in the first place.
