    good place to start career before the merge

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    Prosgreat benefit, great learning experience

    Conslots of uncertainty inside the firm. Bad evaluation process. performance was based on how well your personal relationship with manager. Not based on work efficiency. Mentor program is just fake and not being used well.

    Advice to Senior Managementtalk to different employee, listen to everyone, offer your help. not just listen to those you considered as your friends in your personal life.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    It was good while it lasted.

    Senior Associate (Current Employee) New York, NY (US)

    ProsIt had great benefits and a great workplace environment. It also had a good work/life balance. And it paid overtime.

    ConsBeing bought out by KPMG. Bye bye mid-size perks. Also, inter-office work teams and interactions were not nearly as efficient as working with team members located in one's local office.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWish you wouldn't have sold the firm. We were doing so well.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    A great learning experience!

    Audit Intern (Current Employee) Denver, CO (US)

    No work life balance, but that come with working at an accounting firm during busy season....

    Great Place to Start, but know when to leave..

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Roseland, NJ (US)

    Pros-Provides great benefit package with ample vacation time and days off
    -Great learning experience and gateway to better opportunities at Hedge Funds or Private companies
    -Paid overtime
    -Firm events (LIFE Initiative, Holiday Party, Picnic)

    Cons-Completely unrealistic budgets
    -Some people would be managing 10 jobs during seasom while others only had 3 and would leave at 9pm, while others would be there until past There is no confidentiality. You can take management a personal problem and you can guarantee the whole office knows the next day.

    Advice to Senior Management-Prove trustworthyness to workers
    -Listen when your workers are speaking out (I think something is wrong when 90% of the senior class quit)
    -Give FAIR evaluations with FAIR compensation. It isn't okay to give the entire company the exact same raise. It undermines the dedication some people do put in while the rest just breeze by.

    I think this is a great company to start out at. You learn SO much - about hedgefunds, corporate life, and business, in general. This is a great environment to learn and strengthen your skills. After 4 years or so - get out. It's the best choice I made.
