Productive and fun place to work
Summer Analyst (Former Employee) –  New York, NYOctober 6, 2015
The company is pretty tight knit at the 65 Broadway location. It is a one floor office with partial cubicles, which helps to build camaraderie among employees. Bi-weekly teams meetings and monthly floor meetings help to keep employees "in the loop" regarding Ipreo's overall business activity. This is helpful given the fact that it is still a private company and teams get a chance to receive feedback about their contributions to the firm.
Pros
Cafeteria, Employee camaraderie, Relaxed atmosphere
Cons
None

"Ok at Best"
REIT Analyst (Current Employee) –  New York, NYMay 28, 2015
Pros
-Good early/first experience in the business world as you work for investor relations officers at public companies. They're generally good people who appear to enjoy working with hungry, young individuals
-Although you aren't managing money, valuing stocks, or trading, you're still exposed to the market and can learn some things on your own
-20 paid vacation days plus 9 standard market holidays, decent 401k with 50% match of up to 6% of your savings
-Since all non-managers are more or less recent college grads, your peers are young, pleasant people
-Can be a reasonable gateway to the "real" Wall Street, grad school, or another finance-type job
-If you're lucky enough to have a decent manager, the experience is somewhat better. That's a crapshoot.

Cons
-Subjected to brutal company-wide town hall conference call where the now-ultra-rich and thereby wildly out-of-touch CEO says "ka-ching" every other word, and President's review of lofty company growth numbers (especially after the last two major private equity funds bought and flipped the company) leaves you scratching a deep hole into your head at your meager salary and raise

-Get ready to complete the same reports every day, week and month- this is what you'll spend the most time on and I can't emphasize it enough. Most of these reports revolve around dry topics like stock price performance or recent buyers/sellers of the stock. You'll soon become more adept than your manager at piecing together a mess of data in an application straight out of the early 90's to find these buyers and sellers. Despite some cases
  more... being totally impossible to pinpoint, you'll still be chided for not being on the ball. And God forbid you also have to run particular quarterly or annual report updates, which are all the longer and more boring

-You will be prodded to bombard your clients with emails and calls to the point where you are both annoyed
-If you're doing a good job, managers will turn to nit-pick at the smallest things, showing you they clearly miss the bigger picture of your overall good work. I think they always act like there is a problem to make sure you know why you aren't making much money. It's a great life motto to think that you can "always do better" but please stop acting like we should revolutionize investor relations with every report we send out

-Pressure to provide undefined, random insights via special reports, just to kill time and make yourself look half-intelligent to clients, even though the client doesn't care and you could already be at the bar spending your below-market paycheck
-By far more punishing of what is deemed to be bad behavior, than rewarding of the good

Advice to Management
Increase pay, not even by a ton, just make it fair for the Everyman. For a company insanely focused on growth, you should want employees to stick with you for several years and not be so eager to move on. So is the business model...

Or just stay the same with everything so we have the rest of our careers to look forward to.
