Employee Reviews

  • “Everyone is responsible and mindful of work/life balance. We operate as a small team with many roles, so it can be difficult to fully disconnect at times.”

  • “Excellent culture that supports individuals, and everyone works toward shared goals. It is a serious environment that values results; this is a positive but may be an adjustment for some.”

  • “Great work/life balance. Very family-oriented. Flexible team culture. No micromanagement (or very little) if you are performing. Would prefer more work from home options, though.”

  • “Quality of work life balance is very good. Working in buyside research you don't have the tight deadlines of sell-side research teams. However, earnings season is still very busy.”
