    I worked at Verity full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    -tremendous opportunities for learning and kick starting your career -excellent perks, bi-annual hikes, bi-annual bonuses (for Associates and above) -chances (very little though and depends upon Mgmt's discretion and a little upon your performance and attitude) of London/New York/Chicago/HongKong/Singapore internship opportunities (it's mostly a bait) -no gender-based discrimination when it comes to ensuring quality...

    Cons

    -expect no time for yourself -no smartphones allowed inside, although improves work's efficiency, decreases your ability to do anything extra once you're back home after working hours -extremely high level, single-minded dedication is expected thereby you're always kept on your toes hopping from one project to another -extreme work pressure breaks your breathing rhythms, your eating habits/timings, your peace of mind,...

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Verity full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    1. Learning how to slog (can be a con for many people, but it's definitely a must if you plan to have a career in IB) 2. Chance to make good connection with front end UBS bankers (even at MD level) 3. Internship opportunity in UBS (however please note there is a one year bond if you go. I do think it's illegal to have something of this sort, but they manage to pull it off)

    Cons

    1. Bad work environment (systems are as slow as you could ask for, bad cafeteria food) 2. Work gets redundant after a while 3. Three months notice period if your exp. crosses one year 4. Management team is well settled in life. Not ambitious at all (which I feel trickles down to the team) 5. Its a back-end office

    Advice to Management

    Stop being bias. Got out of your coccon and look for ways to improve work/life balance for your employees Work towards growing the company (many peers are making great strides)

    I have been working at Verity full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good pay. Thats the only reason why people work for in this godforsaken place.

    Cons

    Every single day is a challenge. Breaks your confidence like anything. Managers wont even share your leave balance. Cant even take sick leave. Every one talks about leaving. Even the lighting is so horrible, it feels like we work in a morgue and are one of the dead.

    Advice to Management

    Shut the company and spare the employees's life.
