    There are many other hedge funds out there

    Jan 30, 2021 - Analyst in New York, NY
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Total pay package is good for the level of expectation and responsibility given

    Cons

    Promotion isn't based on meritocracy, rather on who you know or if you are connected to the CEO, which is demotivating. With the exception of a favored few, neither the role nor the position will change for years Much of senior management have been there for 20 + years - there is general perception of job protectionism so progression is limited They have initiatives to promote women in the workplace, however a number have been fired from EA/ reception roles, or forced to leave for not fitting in

    The organization lacks dynamism

    Oct 19, 2020 - Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    They compensate their employees sufficiently so that they will not seek out new opportunities so eagerly.

    Cons

    The firm relishes in their self proclamation of dynamism yet if you do not fit their cookie cutter, it's a non starter for your career. The firm seems to have a high firing rate firing rate, clearly the powers of some middle management seem to go unchecked. Progression is extremely slow and there's the expectation to sit in the same role for a few years, not the place for an ambitious career climber.

    Exciting environment with a lot of positive change. Firm is growing rapidly and expanding globally. It is a fast paced environment and people that thrive in this type of environment will do well at the firm.

    Having to context switch and multitask between projects and tasks may be difficult for some people.
