      Typical New York based Financial Service job

      Jul 7, 2021 - Client Service Specialist in Chicago, IL
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Depending on your manager there is a decent work/life balance. Great location if commuting by metra or living in the city. Company name carries some prestige and is great to have on a resume. Matching 401k

      Cons

      Endless management turnover due to what seemed like constant restructuring resulted in a lack of career development for domestic (US) workers. Amount of time spent analyzing and massaging project management metrics felt at times like it eclipsed core job functions, Unscrupulous and incompetent HR. Lack of incentives for non executive tiered employees. Health insurance is so so. Either you pay a very high premium and have good coverage or you pay a very small premium and have very little coverage. Things you would typically find at NY based financial services position
