Great financial company to work for.

Programmer Analyst (Current Employee) Chicago, IL (US)

ProsPrivately owned corporation. Very flexible with hours and work day-to-day tasks. No micromanaging of employees. Tasks are very straightforward and relatively easy to accomplish.

ConsTasks can be very repetitive and mundane. Not much interaction with direct manager (good or bad). Expectations of role are not clearly defined. Sharing of knowledge is sometimes painful. Career path very unclear.

Advice to Senior ManagementI would suggest taking advice from other companies in the financial district - keep the employees well informed, make clear career paths and promotion availability. Start to require management to live up to higher expectations and not behave like a "family" business, but more like a "top" business in "grandfathering" in management.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
