      Good people & culture but lack of growth opportunities and low pay

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Lots of great, smart, nice people work here. Good work-life balance for most people & opportunity to work from home. Overall good benefits, including 401K match, 3 weeks vacation, sick days, (but only 12 weeks of maternity leave), several health insurance options, dental & visual insurance, tuition assistance, relaxed dress code, free fruits & beverages. The CEO, Adena, is very enthusiastic about making a company a better place and transform it to fintech firm. She has a good vision about the company’s future and works hard to achieve it. Great and well recognized brand.

      Cons

      The pay is low, much lower than for the same positions at other firms and it hardly increases over the years even if you get assigned more responsibilities. The company tries to save money on employees and some departments are understaffed, which makes it difficult or sometimes impossible to deliver projects on time. It is very difficult to move professionally around the company, get promoted or grow, especially if you are a woman. Significant domination of white male employees from middle to executive management levels - women seem to not get promoted, although get hired equally and retained on entry level positions. Middle management has no clue what they are doing, do not have the same vision as the CEO, and often not supportive of their teams. Many of them do the functional job themselves forgetting about their managerial (Leadership) responsibilities. Promotions and changes happen only on the executive level, even when somebody leaves the firm, the senior management and the c-suite move around, middle and entry levels only experience increase in responsibilities without pay increase and promotions. Lots of unproductive, time wasting meetings with managers who has no idea what they are doing.

      A Great Place to Work, but Don't Get Too Attached!

      Pros

      My colleagues were undoubtedly the best in the industry....dedicated to the company, especially those who had survived acquisitions. Team work, low stress environment among the neighboring colleagues. Everyone collaborated and enjoyed their job, and were dedicated to the clients. Direct supervisors encouraged everyone and your input matters. Benefits and pay were great.

      Cons

      Senior management only seem to care about the bottom line, and seemed to love to let go of people who were in dedicated long-time service to the company. People who were creative, thought out of the box, and worked for their clients day and night were let go and replaced with people just out of college or other colleagues who were not with the company for very long. Clearly this was to save money. Don't get too comfortable, your days will be numbered! Outsourcing is also a favorite hobby of theirs....having cut out whole teams to outsource in other countries.

      Politics and legacy over performance and ability

      Pros

      Fair compensation and a global environment. Forward-looking senior management always keeps the company moving ahead and there are always many positive opportunities in the pipeline.

      Cons

      Fierce internal competition for little reason General lack of well deserved recognition Senior management is too busy to be engaged with those doing the work to understand the inner workings of their teams Extremely scarce resources are often poorly directed Many long tenured staff in middle management create an artificial glass ceiling for the next generation achievers and as a result they often leave because their superior contributions go unrecognized

      A case study for how not to manage a company

      Feb 11, 2016 - Managing Director in New York, NY
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Has a good 401K match. Has a nice ESPP. The benefits are pretty good. The work is not that hard and since there is no incentive to outperform, there is no reason to stay late at night or work the weekends. The associates and non management workers tend to be intelligent and hard working, but they leave after 2-3 years.

      Cons

      The opposite of an entrepreneurial firm. Management is deathly afraid of making a wrong decision, so every baby step forward has to go through committees and analysis. The company is also keen on diversity in senior management. So if you are incompetent but check a diversity box, this could be the perfect place for you.

      Pros

      There are few if any in this country who have a similar skill set who get to do what I do and get a decent salary with nice benefits and get a bonus on top o that.

      Cons

      Senior management are overall pretty human, but the select C-level have the attention span of rabbits when it comes to the common employee gripes. And it always seems like you are one mistake away from unemployment, eben when things are goin well for the overall company. Never a word of positive feednack, but loud criticism for the most minute of mistakes. Definitely micro-managing and reactionary managment.

      Terrible management ruins great Company

      Pros

      1) Good Benefits 2) Brand Awareness/Global Company

      Cons

      1) No career growth/advancement - Extremely difficult to move up within the company 2) Senior Management in Legal Group only looks up and does not care about employees below - Many employees are overworked, micro-managed, and work in fear/intimidation 3) Mid-Level Management has no authority and looks to Senior Management for approval on almost everything 4) HR is powerless - When issues are escalated, actions are rarely taken to address them properly and effectively. HR appears to have one of the highest turn-over rate (evidence that HR reps are not happy either)
