    Pros

    Flexible work/life balance - my manager is focused on output, not time AFK or OOO

    Cons

    the company can seem like a black box at times. This is particularly evident with WFH when there is less collaboration and visibility into how things are done and who makes decisions.

    Cool people, but disorganized.

    Jan 12, 2022 - Talent Acquisition Manager in New York, NY
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    The people are generally kind, smart, and invested in the work. Tries to have the vibe of a tech company instead of a finance company, and usually succeeds. Culture is certainly more laid back that peer firms.

    Cons

    From a strategy/planning perspective, the firm is pretty disorganized. There are tons of internal politics that make many decisions (even small ones) super drawn out and frustrating. The result is a mess of an organizational structure - doesn't apply to the whole firm but some teams can be miserable.

    Pros

    Great benefits, good people to work with for the most part

    Cons

    Boss was a micromanager who never liked me Asked multiple times per year for cross training, never got it Hired as a specialist in my field, then fell behind in my field because the company wouldn't make a decision on a technology strategy, then they laid me off for cost savings, and hired a contractor to replace two of us Never learned anything new while I was there
