Lead Senior Assistant - Temp Assignment (Former Employee), Palo Alto, CA – October 12, 2013
Pros: friendly, easy going
I was assigned there as a temp to cover for the previous temp who needed a week off. The staff there liked me and my work so well that they called the agency and requested that I remain and for the other temp not to return. My main focus was to assist the Marketing and Sales unit with their research of prospective companies and help prepare their presentations – more... accordingly. I organized files, set-up a filing system, prepared prospectus, kept status of sales process and reported this to the VP. I remained on, and all was going great. There was talk of me going permanent in September and to continue doing as I was. It was great until the economy started to nose-dive, and the office in Palo Alto was facing layoffs. I was the first to go. At the time I was so hurt and devastated. Then, a few weeks later, 9/11 happened, and I thanked God that I was laid-off, because if I had been hired permanently, I would have been in New York that day for my 6-week new employee training. God is good. – less
Environment, energy, and culture of the trading floor is like none other.
Institutional Sales Trader (Former Employee), New York, NY – October 5, 2013
The trading floor of the New York Stock Exchange is almost indescribable. It is a culture that you have to personally experience in order to fully appreciate. It's a work in and of itself. A typical day on the floor consists of extremely intense energy coupled with non-stop, high volume securities trades. Every second is crucial in the buying and selling – more... of securities whose prices change in seconds. My former co-workers were a group of professionals that were an absolute joy to work with. It can get quite stressful down there and you need to have a solid team that is there to support one another in order to enjoy continued success. Some might consider many parts of a fast moving, high level of stress job - hard parts. I simply don't see it that way - at least not on the NYSE floor. I was proud of my position there as well as working at the epicenter of Wall Street. The most enjoyable part of the job was that we never held positions in stocks. Meaning, every day was a new day with a clean slate. Nothing was really carried over from the previous day. – less

Manager, US - Release Management (Current Employee), Chicago, IL – June 30, 2013
Pros: flexible work from home schedule, good pay/benefits
The organization is steeped in politics. It's so annoying - the company could do so much with the smart people it has working for it, but teams fight each other instead of working together due to the politics.
Case Management (Former Employee), New York, NY – February 4, 2013
Pros: good salary at the time, great benefits
Cons: long commute
This was a fun place to work. I did a lot of entering information in the computer. Kept track of cases and did weekly & monthly reports. My co-workers were fun to be with. The hardest was the computing daily and coming home late to my young children at the time.
