      Pros

      Good benefits, pay, healthcare etc. Free food.

      Cons

      Pretty much everything else. Operates like a cult, churns and burns their young talent (you'll often 50%+ grads leave within 1st year). They know this is an issue, but the machine has to keep on churning. Stats obsessed, to the point they measure your 'time spent on queue' and then rank you against your colleagues.

      Pros

      Added perks include healthcare, fully stocked pantry, philanthropy initiatives.

      Cons

      Similar cons to any large organisation, decisions are made at the top and are filtered down through the divisions which can leave some wondering what the end goal of an initiative is.

      Pros

      * Great Benefits - Health insurance and the perks of being a private company * Amazing internal operational support when it comes to making sure you have everything you need to work. * Great way to understand the capital markets * You make your own success - Up to you to lead a campaign and make something out of it. * Amazing access to companies - i.e. the Bloomberg Brand * Great place to understand finance but not to build a career

      Cons

      * Lack of management development ultimately leading to high turnover in sales * Management are bred inhouse which means that they come from the old school terminal selling background and are new to enterprise selling. * This is a top down company not the other way round meaning you are just a number and even if you have a track record you are always anxious of the consequences that you have done something wrong. * You can only progress career wise if you are in a big office * Starting their flexible working journey but still very rigid... The boss has spend a $1bn for his new headquarter so hes gonna want people to be in the office. * Very metric driven including a lot of productivity stats - Everyone is fine as long as you are hitting target, if you don't then pressure is on you from manager and rather than supporting you they review your "stats" on a weekly basis - i.e. not helping mental health..
