      Pros

      Some nice people. Free lunches on fridays lots of travel between offices business seems to be good growing company

      Cons

      A lot of clever people. .Unfortunately most not as clever as they think they are.. lots of diva types, intensely political and cliquey. very under resourced, hence very long hours and lots of weekend work..compensation doesn't reflect the effort..A lot of my colleagues agree of being heavily oversold role and bonuses at interview.

      Pros

      Great Culture. Awesome office. Lots of social activities. Work is challenging but satisfying. Less grind more thinking. A very strong "work hard and reward hard" culture.

      Cons

      Young work environment can contribute to pressure to work very long hours but then this is standard in this industry. However, this is offset by a very accommodating culture.

      Pros

      They have a very clear vision of growth for the company. They will spend the money necessary to support the results.

      Cons

      It is a competetive place. People are supportive. Its a financial company so long hours are the norm. It's outside of the loop, so commute from Metra sucks.
