    Anyone else hate banking lingo and make fun of it, but as soon as a discussion starts you say "we dont want to boil the ocean here". Fml. Whats your most despised finance phrase?

      Interesting Business Model; Technology-Driven Company

      Pros

      Collaborative work environment. Tremendous reputation in the industry. Lots of really gifted people, especially developers. Freedom to work in your own style. No silly rules about dress code or face time.

      Cons

      There have been major changes in senior management since I left so this may not still be true, but there was a lack of transparency, communication and process that could make it a frustrating place to work. They tend to be stingy and inconsistent with compensation. Half the company is developers so the whole place is very engineering-focused. It can feel like the tail wagging the dog sometimes.

      Pros

      Once a great company. Some very talented people working there but the talent is dwindling. Free lunch a couple times a week I guess is the best pro.

      Cons

      Management unfit for their positions. Very abrasive, rude and self entitled leaders if that's what you call them. Status is more important to senior management than the team working for them.

      Pros

      rock-solid technical infrastructure, well-oiled money making machine 24/7, the money machine is so well tuned that it's almost impossible to break it

      Cons

      new incompetent senior management team, i.e. K Duker and the suckups, who don't actually know anything about the business. glad they are finally being fired by the board. hopefully the new CEO can patch the wounds. yet to be seen.

      Pros

      Generally smart people. Good team structures - small and focused but not myopic. Generally good inter-team cooperation.

      Cons

      Not well-managed. Senior management appeared to be unable to formulate and execute clear plans to deal with the challenges the company faced.
