    Great Experience

    May 11, 2016 - Associate in New York, NY
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    There are many talented and smart people across the various departments. I found most everyone to be hard working, ambitious, and generally positive.

    Cons

    The work life balance can be poor, as is common in the industry. There seems to be a controlled turnover mentality where many people are not necessarily encouraged onward with title or compensation.
