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

    Pros

    Good experience in learning structured finance. An awesome group of CMBS professionals in the Ambler office, the management team’s combined knowledge is a tremendous resource to you. The KCP product/platform is continually getting refined and enhanced, which is fun to be a part of.

    Cons

    Somewhat challenging to reach via public transportation

    Advice to Management

    Continue to provide the great work/life balance and flexibility, and fun culture.

    I worked at KBRA full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    This company is all about title and salary, which is all that anyone can like about working here, plus some traveling and receiving a bonus each year whether you earned it or not.

    Cons

    This company is poorly run, no formal training or programs available to support employees' growth potential or development. Senior staff are overly stressed and do not want to take the time to train new employees. The NY office doesn't seem to pay much attention to its out of state offices, which makes the senior management team non-existent. HR is disorganized and makes no effort to seek company-wide feedback... and advocate for improvements. Overall, this is a very small company with limited opportunity for growth.

    Advice to Management

    Establish formal training, promote growth, seek feedback from employees, and have more interaction with newer employees (not just rely on what senior employees have to say). In addition, Management/HR should actually take the time to read what current/former employees say on sites such as Glassdoor and provide a response (which there hasn't been any for this site in particular). At least this it shows that you... value your employees and their feedback on the company.

    I worked at KBRA

    Pros

    Growing firm with potential. Senior management makes a strong effort to set a good example.

    Cons

    Strict regulatory environment kills the entrepreneurial spirit while closed minded group management does not encourage innovation or out of the box thinking.
