    I worked at Helios & Matheson IT full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I had worked at Helios & Matheson Analytics Inc full-time for more than 2 years.

    Great coworkers who are really smart and respectful. In fact, I would stress on the genuinely nice portion. They senior management is quite knowledge about the finance space and will help you to succeed if your from a technical background to understand the business aspect. I got great experience working on analytics projects in the Financial Services space. The company really cares about its employees and treats them really well. Work-life balance is awesome. With this experience I got a better opportunity and higher salary in New York with a big bank. You can always bring new ideas to the table and the management is always interested in investing in your learning. Great start for a data analyst looking to gain experience in the Financial Services space.

    Cons

    You will be working on multiple projects and it can be a challenge at times with less number of resources to meet deadlines. As a result you will spend a lot of time in meetings and giving updates to the project management team. Its essential that employees be given training on maintaining work life balance. This can be stressful at times, but that's what makes this job fun and challenging at the same time.

    Advice to Management

    Great Management. However, it’s essential that you should hire more resources to meet target deadlines.

    Pros

    you can have a job if no one is hiring you...

    Cons

    A worst body shopping company, there is no investment in their employees, whatsoever. Consider yourself lucky if there is one get together in a year. Beware, no one knows them but they will speak high about themselves. Look at their web site, that's how good they are. Their web site speaks how serious they are about investing in themselves. Unethical business practices, do not trust their promises. This is not for those who are serious about their career. Their business is as simple as putting bodies at client and get the billing going.

    Advice to Management

    Take some risks, invest in your employees. Get out of body shopping mentality and do some real stuff for your clients.

    I worked at Helios & Matheson IT full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good team handling by the leads.
    Supportive higher order managers.
    Good atmosphere to work.
    Employee relation is good between the peers and managers.
    Salary on time.
    If you are a hard worker you will be rewarded.
    Frequent team lunch's boost the employee's bonding.

    Cons

    Incentives should be on regular basis and not on the company's profit turnover.
    An appraisal should be given every year for the employees to stay back, they cant expect an employee to work for 2years with the same salary in which they joined.Chances of losing good employees are high in this case.

    Advice to Management

    Employee engagement activities should be planned at least once in a quarter.
