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

        Pros

        Upper management is very helpful. Co-workers are very nice and welcoming to new hires. Many opportunities for growth within company.

        Cons

        Small staff makes the job ten times harder. Very fast paced at times. Work-life balance is non- existent. No time for family life.

        Advice to Management

        Hire more staff for all positions. Staff members are constantly being moved and promoted, that there should be constant new hires at all positions.

        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.

        Advice to Management

        Learn how to manage people or hire people who actually know how to mage people and diversify you hiring practice.

        I worked at Primatics Financial full-time

        Pros

        Flexible work schedule, great staff below Director. Most people just waiting for other shoe to drop ( aka the earn-out) before exiting. Lots of openings as many of the recent hires ( in last 2 yrs) quitting. If you are on a project run by a founder - rules/SOP will not apply to you but you will work 60 hrs/week.

        Cons

        Read all the postings on Glass-door - there is a theme. For a company of its size the firm is surprisingly very political and senior management is incompetent. The majority of VP and Directors have only worked at Freddie/Fannie which only adds to the bad habits and haphazard way in which they apply processes. Work/life balance is very poor.

        Advice to Management

        To Carlyle: Get rid of founders and 75% of VP and Directors - then re-build.

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

        Pros

        Primatics is a young technology company and with that come ups and downs. I have been present for many of the highs and lows during my tenure. Employees who excel at Primatics are those who are bought into the vision and understand that hard work and dedication pay off. Flexibility / adaptability are a must, as change is ever-present. This company has some of the best and brightest people I have ever encountered. The...

        Cons

        Again, this is a growing company constantly going through change. Work-life balance is a challenge for some at times. Mistakes are made, but there is always a lesson learned. The management team has more work to do to ensure people in all departments are actually being managed - there are too many managers with subject matter skills who lack "people" skills, but are still assigned...

        Pros

        Compensation is good; Work/life balance is good for some; terrible for others. Colleagues are bright and hard-working.

        Cons

        The company has taken a turn for the worse in 2013 and the outlook for the future is bleak at best; there have been multiple layoffs this year and there seems to be a mass exodus with multiple people leaving each week; the culture has turned toxic with everyone pointing fingers at one another and playing the blame game for why the company is not doing well. It's an awful environment to work, and I would not recommend...

        Pros

        Depending on who you work with there may be work life balance.

        Cons

        The company operates in a very niche space that thrived on banks acquiring distressed assets. This worked when the economy was in downturn but they have not been able to maintain clients and get new one's as the economy improves. So there are few opportunities for learning something marketable and to enhance one's personal resume. Whatever opportunities do exist are promptly shared, not on merit but favoritism as other...

        Advice to Management

        Your tier 2 managements do not talk with each other and are not as open as the founders were / are. Hence resources are not satisfied.

        Friendly co-workers and good location provide a good working environment. Pay and benefits were both good.

        Cons

        Work-life balance can be an issue at times. There is sometimes a disconnect between the different levels of management

        Advice to Management

        Plan more for the long-term, not the short-term.
