  1. "A good place to learn."

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

    I worked at Primatics Financial

    Pros

    A lot of smart people working on quantitative analysis. A good place to hone in on one's analytical skill set.

    Cons

    The company is always changing. This could be a good thing if you have a personality type that appreciates change.

    I have been working at Primatics Financial full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    First, the biggest advantage of working at Primatics is that you are working with really smart people. Everybody says that but here you are really working with people with very high IQs Second, the executive management is really interested in fixing problems. Most of the senior management are made up of very analytically oriented people. Once you get them to take notice of a problem, they will find a solution. You...

    Cons

    I've been at Primatics for 4 years. Over the past 4 years the growth has exploded and Primatics was bought over by the Carlyle group. As Primatics has grown, it has gone from being more people-oriented to being more process-oriented. Also, unfortunately, since Carlyle bought Primatics, everything is going downhill. Yes, when they first came on board, the company line was "Carlye is not telling us how to run the company....

    I have been working at Primatics Financial

    Pros

    Smart People, competitive compensation, good work/life balance. Co-founders are amazing!

    Cons

    Management has no idea how to manage. Everyone's ego gets in the way of real work. Meetings, meetings, meetings. And always the same people running their mouth to hear themselves talk. Middle/Senior management needs a complete overhaul. The company is struggling because there is absolutely no continuity or consistency. Everyone is so busy trying to make their presentation "pretty" for the endless meetings, they don't...

    Advice to Management

    Start replacing middle and senior management, before it's too late. Executives, look down, who's licking your shoe? Start replacing those people first. Glorified admin assistance do not constitute lofty positions just because they have been around since the beginning. They do nothing and act like they own the place. No one wants to work for someone like that.

    Pros

    - Very smart people - Great office environment - Upper management is approachable and supportive of learning curve - Rapidly growing company

    Cons

    I have yet to find any cons as I am relatively new to the company; it is still a young and growing company with an ever-changing product so hard work is to be expected to adapt to change.

    Pros

    Growing company. Challenging and stimulating projects. If you work hard, you will be rewarded. Loads of opportunity. Very smart people. Constant change, which is great!

    Cons

    Fast paced growth, so be prepared to put in extra time - but that is required for career growth anywhere. Office in an expensive neighborhood.

    I have been working at Primatics Financial full-time

    Pros

    Very smart people with good accounting experience

    Cons

    I won't rehash the work life balance issues cited elsewhere. But what they are selling is an advanced form of vapor ware, with the expectation that the client and staff pick up the slack and pay for the lack of testing and development.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your clients

    I worked at Primatics Financial

    Pros

    High pace, high energy small company environment. Some very smart people to work with.

    Cons

    Primatics hires senior software engineers and then assign them software installation and execution work. And try doing that for 12-14 hours every day. During crunch times, you could get a call at 10:00 PM for some work and expected to deliver by midnight. High employee turnover, Management keeps hiring more people to replace people who leave, without bothering to understand and address employee concerns.

    Advice to Management

    - Management should be clear during hiring process as to the role and responsibilities of the position. - Management should help employees maintain work life balance by not looking down on employees who want to work say 45-50 hours per week.
