    Pros

    Company was full of young people to socialize with - overall college-like atmosphere with little or no oversight from management.

    Cons

    Little to no oversight or direction from anyone due to constant turnover in management. One new senior level manager would come in and within 2 weeks would hire 10 of his friends from a former employer.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your talent. At one time this company was run by executives who worked their way through the ranks and had a personal interest in the long term success of the company, now you are lucky if someone stays for a full year!

    Pros

    Ping pong table, pool table, video games. Work hrs are pretty manageable

    Cons

    Dead end job, no vision in place, way too much miscommunication between departments.

    Advice to Management

    Take a step back and look at the big picture, instead of just profits, then maybe people will stay longer than 1-2 yrs at the company

    No matter how great you do. Your bonus and your hike is decided already and the freshers are penalized the most

    You take the brightest minds and do not provide them a good career path.

    Pros

    Work/life balance, exposure to a variety of investment vehicles and investment professionals

    Cons

    Management is terrible, unorganized, unaccountable, unprofessional, not present, untrustworthy, and dishonest

    Advice to Management

    Multiple scenarios where regional managers were dishonest and did not keep their word, even when communication was documented via email. Choose your leaders more thoroughly.

    Pros

    Innovative company if you're in sales, marketing or product, good products, good salary, nice location in NYC

    Cons

    If you work in sales or in product the jobs are probably amazing. If you are behind the scenes working in tech or operations its a nightmare. So much bureaucracy so little time. The environment is fast paced, but the tech teams can't keep up. Management is old school S&P management so don't let the CIQ name fool you. Most of the good management left when they were forced to come together. It used to be a great place to work, now its terrible, with poor management and you have to basically ask to go to the bathroom. Too many micromanagers and managers who don't understand how to manage. Most managers are extremely passive aggressive and old school. If you are looking for a young innovative tech team to work on, this isn't it. If you are in product it will be an innovative team but your stuff won't be developed correctly or on time.

    Advice to Management

    Back off, let people do their jobs, technology management needs the big ole heave ho. Bring in young, smart people, instead of old school boys club cronies.

    Pros

    The culture is good - management has been trying to improve morale through events, benefits, and fancy new fad-office design - PS4s and X-Box Ones, treadmill and standing desks, etc.

    Cons

    The technology is dated and backwards, and strives towards modernizing/embracing newer, more productive patterns and libraries have been dragged down by management that either doesn't get it or actively stops innovation. It's gotten too big to be what it once was - a focused team that valued talent, brains, and innovation.
