Review:

"Used to be fun to work at"

Former Employee - Reviewed on October 17, 2018

You can't buck New York headquarters unless you're Pat Kelly. Bring Pat Kelly back as managing partner. Too political and oppressive.

Pros : Interesting work for the most part, nice offices, felt proud to work there, not much else to recommend it (20 words).
Cons : Terrible management. It was fun when Pat Kelly was managing partner. For the last four years, it has been poorly run. No raise for several years.
Approve of the CEO[?] : Yes
Recommend this employer to a friend? : Yes
Business outlook for the next 6 months? : up
Current or former employee? : Former Employee
Last Year at Employer : 2017
Job type : Full time
