Given opportunities to learn and grow, supportive culture and process driven

Data Analyst (Current Employee) London, England (UK)

ProsEvolution and change are well managed and people pay attention to the quality of the delivery and communication. Individuals are recognized for their achievements and compensated well. Good work life balance with solid managers.

ConsSome of the technology stack is dated and seems overly complex. Difficult to get enough internal resources to deliver projects.

Advice to Senior ManagementAsk for more anonymous advice and reviews of large technical changes. Pay for some utilities rather than rolling everything internally.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Pros: Exposure to interesting investment portfolios Exposure to a talented junior staff Cons: Poorly run by senior management On a downward spiral Advice to Senior Management: RQA should be pared back as an organization.
