    Pros

    Great place to gain experience and work with intelligent people. They have a family like culture, stocked kitchen, and prestigious location. Management is very accessible and it's a wonderful place to work.

    Cons

    Bonuses are dependent on company performance more than individual effort.

    The Worst

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Not many Pros about a place where mismanagement virtually drove the firm out of business

    Cons

    Worst managers in an industry known for bad managers. They fiddled as the place burned down around them and blamed the employees on the front lines for their failure. Would not recommend the place to anybody.

    Missed the Boat

    Pros

    I can't honestly think of any. If I could give less than one star I would.

    Cons

    This company had an opportunity to really start out with a bang both for their product and their company culture. Unfortunately they missed the boat on both fronts. The product is unsellable; management won't go out on a limb to make a call worth getting behind. There's absolutely no value-add to a sophisticated fund, especially given the price they are trying to charge. The culture at this company is just ridiculous and it all stems from the top. There is no trust between management and everyone else. Even the people in management positions are constantly backstabbing and manipulating each other. Employees mimic this by continuing the backstabbing or don’t last long. Everyone here is completely miserable.

    Pros

    Constant entertainment from all the drama and clueless behavior management displays. It's really sad, yet, at the same time one cannot help but laugh at consistent amateur hour decisions management makes.

    Cons

    Normally reviews on the Internet are extreme. When I stumbled upon the previous 19 reviews I could not believe how accurate they were. As a matter of fact, many of the reviews are actually being kind. Yes, this firm really is this bad. Do not work here. It's career and mentally damaging. Leaving this firm is like getting out of the hole of solitary confinement.

    Poorly managed firm that has little regard for its employees

    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Notoriety in the consumer research space You may be given a lot of responsibility but will not be compensated for it Small firm

    Cons

    Inadequate compensation Lack of an HR department with employees' best interests in mind Lack of leadership or management skills Lack of friendly, open culture Long hours Inability to manage expectations and reward employees properly Lack of personal control over vacation time Bonuses are given on a case by case bonus and are often reduced High turnover, understaffed teams The firm is more concerned with how it is perceived than how it actually is run

    Ruined a Good Firm

    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Honestly there really are none! If there was a negative rating this firm would receive it.

    Cons

    Inexperienced management team with limited understanding how Wall St operates. CEO is more concerned about how she is perceived by companies instead of doing value add research. The entire SR management team tries to control CEO with little success. Behind the scenes SR management expresses frustration over CEO to all employees. To CEO's face SR management bow down and kiss her feet and tell her how great she is. It really is sickening! CEO also serves as head of research which creates a major conflict of interest. The entire SR management team tries to control CEO by forcing stock calls when it's CEO's nature to report news and go on TV to promote self image. CEO is in the wrong business. No credible HR department to offer a sounding board. The firm lost 95% of its quality analysts, sales and trading department over the last few years. Sinking fast.

    Pros

    There are some pleasant people scattered about that are nice to work with. Stocked kitchen with snacks and beverages.

    Cons

    High turn over rate. The average people stay is 1 year or less, sometimes a little over. Sub par pay. Poor management. No HR department. They make up their own rules outside of common practices from other firms in the industry. They don't value employees.
