    Pros

    Really good news... I wish they close the rest of their offices as this's very not loyal company. They don't deserve business as they treat their employees bad.

    Cons

    Nothing to say...Nothing to say... They promise and they aren't keeping their promises

    Advice to Management

    No advices. They will fail soon or later. Hopefully they will get what they deserve. I am sure, they don't care about people's life.

    Pros

    Free sodas, the clients are great to work with.

    Cons

    Literally every other month someone quits the team. The work environment is extremely hostile and not a healthy work environment. HR is not supportive and is only concerned with the company’s interest. There is no training at this job so you are set up for failure. Management has high turnover as well. People aren’t being fired, they are quitting. There is no advancement at the Houston site for this company. They client is Invesco. Invesco is great.

    Advice to Management

    They need a whole new management team at the Houston site. Mace Macro is a joke including HR. HR only protects the company's interest. HR covers up for the awful managers.
