difficult environment. Inconsistent management
Vice President, Head of Client Services (Former Employee) –  New York, NYAugust 26, 2018
IT priorities are all over the place - no clear direction, completely confliting directives. Three CTO's, too many captains running the ship. Success is on the back of your peers, so very competitive and back-stabbing is common.
Pros
good pay
Cons
terrible management

Oportunities and hard work
Analyst (Current Employee) –  New York, NYAugust 19, 2014
This firm has tons of opportunities for aggressive professionals who are looking to get experience under their belts. The only problem is that, the culture is enforced by management and the vision of the users can be unrealistic. I work 60-70 hrs per week and can never truly disconnect from my responsibilities.
Pros
company benefits, training, cross collaboration
Cons
extensive hours, salary does not reflect work output and expectations
