Terrible place to work
No support from upper management at all! Any complaints made against management result in you being terminated. You have to go along to get along even when you people are being treated unfairly. Very sad.

Small, Smart, Productive Team
Small team of smart developers, well managed, good work/life balance, allowed remote work and flexible schedule. Had to deal with off-shore teams which was problematic at times.

Fun work environment and no micro management
Great company. Applied through a temp service. Good pay, paid travel expenses. The most enjoyable part of the job is being able to drive from location to location. You get to meet owners of gas stations and people in general.

Overall Good
Overall Good. Good place to gain footing in accounting and financial background of a financial services firm. Overall vision has changed over many years of a&qs, which kept the fast pace movement anyone within the back office.

Toxic
The work/life balance is nonexistent. Be prepared to work up to 16 hours a day for several days or weeks straight. Be prepared to not be properly trained. Be prepared to not be appreciated for all the hours and hard work. Yes, they buy cookies or cupcakes or some other treats and say thank you once a quarter (if they remember) but it would be nice to actually feel appreciated by immediate managers/supervisors.

Depressing environment
Very easy to see that massive roadblocks put in place for management to hire good people. NY management of the office and lead manager in the office really could give a flying leap about anyone below their pay grade. Dozens of people in and out of roles there, just a revolving mill.

Massive "Temp" atmosphere there unfortunately that will persist for at least a few years given the "you're on your own" attitude from NY. Apparently lots of contractors who have/had been there over a year who aren't staff yet as well. Equipment is a decade old and you can spend hours just watching a wheel spin. No break room, no perks at all aside from a small kitchen and an office bar trip sometimes once a month.

Highly efficient workplace and culture
Pro: A typical financial service/consulting company. Good reputation among peers. Excellent client service. Professional people around who takes value of their own reputation. Great platform to learn.

Con: Work/Life balance. Expect long work hours and fast response to client needs at any given time. Also work became repetitive after a certain period of time.

Productive and fun place
As an intern you do a lot of heavy Excel work. The environment is pretty collaborative and people are willing to help you and answer any questions you may have.
Pros
Engaging place to work
Cons
Entry-level role involves primarily plugging numbers in Excel

A good place to be part of the team for a few years
Executive management is good with buying key targets for inorganic growth. Some of the MDs are great and a pleasure to work with. Management needs to think about long term careers for the employees and work on retaining them.

Solid work life balance
but that's about the only positive I can think of. Below market compensation; unorganized upper management; high turnover rate; generally dull culture.

Depends who your supervisor is...
It depends on who you work for and my experience was poor. I tried to adapt to my manager's style and do whatever I could but he seemed to be a very negative person with a large ego (he said it himself). He is no longer with the company so hopefully your experience is better now.

Unimpressive
Homogenous co-workers, almost non-existent company culture. Benefits are in the range of average to above-average. Management is non-transparent and short-term focused obsessed with only cutting costs and telling people how things are going well and then next minute laying off workforce.
Pros
office snacks, good healthcare plans, 401K matching
Cons
non-transparent management

Okay for my first job
Almost no work life balance due to a large amount of travel. Almost no opportunities for knowledge or career advancement. I was promised the opportunity to manage projects within 6 months of starting, but was never allowed to do so.

I would work there again under the right conditions. Good pay and benefits. The colleagues and coworkers are good, for the most part. I was very fond of my teammates/coworkers, as well as my immediate bosses.
Pros
Good pay and benefits. There are pluses working for a large corporation
Cons
Layoffs are a possibility
