    I have been working at EQECAT full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Interesting business, some of staff are very talented, small enough to feel like a family, but reap rewards of parent company's size for benefits, recent release of new platform overcomes legacy issues with previous platform.

    Cons

    – Some staff do not pull their weight and there are no repercussions, lack of transparent compensation plans, especially surrounding bonuses. As a result, no motivation to excel other than personal pride and integrity, causing "star" players to become frustrated and "B" team to skate by. Previous President (Bill Keogh) highly respected, effective and well liked. Change in management was a mistake. Parent company does...

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at EQECAT full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    If you're looking for a position to coast, push papers and generally avoid having to commit or produce meaningful and profitable work - this is your place.

    Cons

    Archaic and ignorant management that do not understand how to run a profitable and competitive business. ABS as a parent company is a horrible relationship that benefits neither party.

    Advice to Management

    Purge senior management team and hold employees accountable for lack of performance.

    Dump current top management Pick advise from expert people who left the company over the last 5 years Otherwise just sell to an interested party

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at EQECAT full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    -smart, committed, friendly people -interesting work -small enough for your voice to be "heard"

    Cons

    -bureaucracies related to the parent organization -groups are somewhat in "silos," so cooperation is less fruitful than it could be

    Advice to Management

    your core competency is in the models, not the platform! figure out how to capitalize on technical prominence even if it means abandoning other products.
