    Pros

    Some of the main pros were good pay, stock options, great benefits, smart and talented colleagues and it used to be located in the heart of Manhattan.

    Cons

    The structure could be very hierarchical and the headquarters were in Manhattan which was not for everyone. Now they are in Jersey City, New Jersey.

    Advice to Management

    Advice to management is to make sure that talented employees are recognized and rewarded for their talent and not overlooked in the busy culture that it is.
