    I have been working at Primatics Financial full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Even entry-level employees are given a lot of agency and responsibility here. The people are great, and since acquisition by SS&C management has made a clear effort to improve on employee engagement and customer satisfaction.

    Cons

    There is a very steep learning curve (many people coming in have to learn both how to use the software and relevant accounting reg.'s). Since this is a smaller company, it is hard to get training just for your job (although they do a good job of big-picture training on things that affect everyone).

    I worked at Primatics Financial full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    There was a lot to learn and a number of bright people that worked there that you could learn from. Pay was decent, work was interesting.

    Cons

    Very cliquish, you had to belong to the JMU crew to get any meaningful projects or get promoted. They teams are not a colaborative as the claim and you were either part of the "it" group or not. Expect long hours, work life balance is not a priority here.

    I worked at Primatics Financial full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good compensation and friendly co-workers

    Cons

    They just hired a new CEO and laid off about 15% of their workforce. If you went to James Madison University, there's a very good chance you did not get laid off. The company is just one big fraternity with 50% of employees completing their undergrad at James Madison and 20% of the employees alumni of the University of Maryland. The training is non-existent and managers at the firm have poor communication skills. Also, half of the day is spent in meetings which ends up being a complete waste of time. There is rampant favoritism across the firm as ass-lickers rule both in product group and services regardless of individual performance.
