    I worked at RedChip full-time

    Pros

    You get to learn a lot about the financial industry and businesses.

    Cons

    You get a lot of people that leave because they get intimidated and never get past the giant learning curve.

    Advice to Management

    Help teach and explain.

    I have been working at RedChip full-time

    Pros

    As an Equity Research Analyst the learning curve was very steep however, the Director of Research is extremely knowledgeable and is always more than happy to help. This is a job that will really open up a lot of doors for young professionals. The work environment can be fairly relaxed but it also has its stressful days especially when deadlines approach. As someone said before, because it is a small company you have to wear many hats. Over this past year I have worked on several different projects with the media department, sales department, marketing department, and communications department. I believe this type of exposure has made me a well rounded professional. The compensation is pretty competitive for a first time job. CEO, Director of Research, and both VPs are always willing to help and answer any questions you have.

    Cons

    Things can get pretty stressful especially because there are a lot of moving parts in the company. Employees should definitely participate in more team building activities to build trust and a better company culture. Training could be a little better, but management does a really good job at answering any questions

    Advice to Management

    Management has a wealth of knowledge that should be shared a little more often. Add a 401K matching.

    I worked at RedChip full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    CEO keeps the business focused and moving foward. Great chance to learn many different industries, learn about Wall Street and the economy. For the most part as long as you do what's expected of you then the days go smoothly. Also like that CEO has made Redchip into industry leader in its space. The company name is well known which makes things easier.

    Cons

    You will need to be a self starter, enjoy learning, and motivated. As long as you are that person you will enjoy the opp. If not, then... Training could be better but if you have a question you will get the help.

    I worked at RedChip (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Employees typically have many responsibilities which allows you to gain experience in many ways. I would definitely say this is a strong stepping stone for young professionals looking to gain experience in film, sales, IT, finance, and communications. At RedChip you are exposed to a lot of successful business people and CEOs. There are a lot of young business professionals that truly see the potential in the company and try to do the best possible job they can do.

    Cons

    There is absolutely no company culture which I personally believe correlates with the extremely high turn-over rate of employees. The majority of employees only stay for about a year. CEO tends to micro-manage way too much and often gives asinine tasks to employees. He often yells and screams and requires side tasks (which he usually forgets about) to be done immediately despite more important deadlines.

    Advice to Management

    Behave in a more professional manner and do not micro manage as much.

    Pros

    You will learn a ton working here, including exposure to many different industries and sides of the business. Very smart coworkers who are always willing to work together and help. The CEO is one of the most driven and tenacious individuals I have ever met.

    Cons

    There are often too many competing directives occurring at once. This causes the company to lose sight of its most important goals.

    Advice to Management

    Try to focus on doing a few things really well, and prevent from spreading yourself too thin.
