    I have been working at KBRA full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Friendly, teamwork-based culture Good opportunity for advancement if you put in the time and effort, have good interpersonal and leadership qualities, etc. Compensation seems appropriate relative to experience and effort, particularly as you advance past entry level positions Management is flexible, especially to those that put in adequate effort In summary, “you get out what you put in”, the experience/opportunity is what you make of it

    Cons

    Can periodically work more hours than a basic 9-5, particularly if unforeseen turnover hits or to compensate for long vacations and holidays

    Pros

    Great Company to work at. People are energetic and culture is laid back and easy going. bi-annual promotion system allows quick promotion for right individuals . Flat structure with friendly and fantastic management team. The company has experienced explosive growth for the past years and will probably continue to do so.

    Cons

    Company is growing but some areas are still short staffed. Analysts unfortunately are overwhelmed and end up taking work load meant for two-three people. With an exception of CMBS department, many departments seem to do both new deal and surveillance with little resources or infrastructure.
