    Great place to work. Very supportive group. Encourages the CFA program and is willing to help pay for it.

    Cons

    The time period has been very volatile due to company events causing a reshuffling of priorities.

    I have been working at Verus full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Educated and hard working coworkers, growing firm, beer fridge, somewhat flexible hours. Management does seem to have employees interests at heart

    Cons

    Long hours more associated with investment management firms than consulting. No one gets fired even if they're not doing any work

    Advice to Management

    Reward not just experience but achievements

    I have been working at Verus (More than a year)

    Pros

    This is definitely a company that is growing. They have continued to add new clients at a quick pace.

    Cons

    The role is restrictive, little room to grow.

    Pros

    Great team, people here are easy to work with. Very friendly, available to help and share ideas.

    Cons

    Work you to the grave. They promote the CFA more than any other certification. Yet, during busy season (which can last up to two months), you have no time to study. Work 14 hours a day, seven days a week. Good luck passing any exams with these kinds of hours.

    Advice to Management

    Please hire more people. We need a healthy team, not a burned out group.

    Pros

    The work is exciting (to me), and there are opportunities to move up in the company if you can perform.

    Cons

    Work life balance could be better. Pay is fairly low for the finance industry. Job security is minimal if there is a recession.

    Advice to Management

    In order to grow more in the coming years, be more willing to exploit opportunities in emerging and developing nations.

    I worked at Verus part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Alles war gut. Die Kollegen sind freundlich und die Arbeit macht Spaß!

    Cons

    Es gibt eigentlich nichts auszusetzen. Nur die Klos.. Ja die Klos.. da sollten sie was machen.

    Advice to Management

    So bleiben! ;-)
