    Pros

    Plenty of work and responsibility. Got to experience many different facets of the business. Work with highly skilled and experienced people

    Cons

    Unclear career path; poor management. Compensation seemed arbitrary. Some clearly made more with less experience. Tended to pay more for new hires while existing employees got paid less.

    Advice to Management

    provide clearer goals for employees and what it takes to advance. value existing employees more and not pay more for outside talent.

    Pros

    It doesn't seem to be too bad if your high up within the firm or if you're hired into a more senior level position.

    Cons

    You can work twice as hard as the person sitting next to you and never go any where.

    "Great company if you are in Upper Management"

    Pros

    Some Nice Upper Management. I was treated fairly by my Manager.
    I always got a bonus which was nice.

    Cons

    If you work in Office Services or in the Reception, people tend to look down on you. You are not given opportunities to go to different departments because they take the lower tier of employee's for granted and don't feel they can do it. You are pigeon-holed.

    Advice to Management

    Treat all Employee's the same.

    Very professional colleagues. Many professional experts work in RCM, which would be helpful for you to either working with or learning from team works.

    Pros

    Good opportunity for investment professionals, such as analysts and portfolio managers, global firm possible opportunities at other offices, good benefits, generally nice people and located in San Francisco.

    Pros

    - Convinient location within London Centre
    - Access to companies, research tools and travel options are sufficient
    - A number of positive individuals still within the company , but RCM currently undergoing restructuring so info might be outdated

    Cons

    - German dominated company
    - Poor transparency regarding compensation and promotion
    - Bonus apparently not tight to personal performance
    - Current senior staff lacks social as well as investment skills
    - High turnover, best people are leaving
    - No team culture: Company is strictly divided into PMs and Analysts
