      Flexibility, Low Stress, Lack of Growth

      Apr 8, 2021 - Senior Portfolio Reporting Analyst in Denver, CO
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Flexible work schedule. Decent amount of paid time off. Low stress. Friendly environment. Overall a decent place to work for a first job out of college or if you’re changing industries.

      Cons

      Advancing within the company is rare and slow. Promotions aren't accompanied with much of a pay increase. Overtime pay is extinguished past the analyst level, therefore analysts may earn more than their supervisors. Because of this, motivation to advance within the department is lower than it could be.

      Great career starter

      Feb 6, 2021 - Investment Accountant in Denver, CO
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Great place to get your foot in the door. Standard benefits: 401k, health insurance (great), large amount of PTO in comparison to my friends companies. 21 days starting +1 for every year you are there and you can rollover a limited amount. Once in there is a lot of job security.

      Cons

      You will work over time. Sometimes I wouldnt mind it because of time and a half pay but when its weeks on end it can be a lot. Also, the training can be hit or miss depending on who is doing it but dont let that deter you.
