Long Hours.... Little Reward
Prod Support Manager (Former Employee), New York, NYOctober 2, 2014
Pros: good cafeteria
Cons: long hours (minimum 12 per day)
This company needs to review it's treatment of the employees that make it good. It seems that the bad behavior of the few has a significant impact to the way they handle the really good ones. Having to communicate zero bonus' to good employees sucked!

Eh - not as promised
Assistant Vice President, ISDA Negotiator (Former Employee), New York, NYJuly 30, 2014
Great culture, very good people, very poor execution...

Management isn't necessarily in tune with the day-to-day, especially as it pertains to excessive/unnecessary training. However, despite the focus on training, many of the daily tasks are poorly or outright not trained on.
