      Pros

      Work life balance Decent products Office location Part of Bloomberg Good brand

      Cons

      Sales commission changed and is less rewarding. Work and sell more but earn less money! Sales management team arrogant Micro managing the sales reps seems the new mantra of the sales management team with useless KPIs and control.

      Pros

      If you like chocolate there seems to be an endless supply here, they also have fruit on offer.

      Cons

      Too many to list, but for the benefit of those looking to work here I will try to be neutral. I can only speak for the UK London office, Sales training is SHOCKINGLY awful. I mean - there is no sales training, you have some videos to watch and some tests on product knowledge, and then you basically come in and the sales manager goes on calls with you, which leaves you with little room to breathe. Other sales managers might be different, but they are all based in the US, the sales structure is strange where there is just one team dealing with sales outside of North America. So no room to progress if you want to move into management you have to wait for people to leave. Treatment of contractors is equal to treatment of second class citizens. Its appalling to see really. Leadership in the office have zero interest in their own employees well being. A lot of fake sincerity and lack of authenticity at the top which kills the motivation of employees. Also leadership sits in glass bowls away from employees - the power distance is ridiculous. No one is happy. I mean no one on the permanent staff seem truly happy. There is a sense that they are all desperate to leave if an opportunity came their way. There are toxic employees too - those who just complain, and emanate with negativity, because they have worked at BNA for years management can't get rid of them. The office is deathly quiet - no one talks, no communication. And when I say no communication I mean it - think about the repercussions regardless of what job you do if people don't talk? Too much unspoken resentment for the MD. Toxic.

      Pros

      The products seem to be well respected in the market and I found a lack of outsized egos.

      Cons

      The office 'atmosphere' is moribund, there seems to be a lack of effective leadership and employee engagement.

      Lack of Advancement Opportunities

      Pros

      The offices are very nice, the company treats new employees well, there are great people that work here

      Cons

      Depending which product you're working for, it can be very difficult to move within the company. If you want to stay within your given industry (law, tax, govt) opportunities to move up can be very few and far between. In the last 6 months, I've seen a lot of great people leave for opportunities elsewhere because management chooses to hire external candidates over highly qualified, smart internal workers for the few vacancies that open up. They prioritize external candidates and will let you take on lots of extra work under the guise of preparation for your next role, but won't pay you accordingly. If you get lucky finding a promotion, don't expect to be paid market rate for the role; your raise is anchored by your current salary even if this is much lower than you'd get for the same title elsewhere.

      Pros

      Great comp structure. Fast promotion and growth possibilities. Name recognition in the industry. They invest in your development as a sales professional, lots of training and support.

      Cons

      No RTO flexibility post pandemic. Such a big organization, you really are just a small fish in a big pond. "We've always done it this way" kind of culture... Rat wheel type of work flow.

      Pros

      Benefits are good. Good place to start if you like tax. We have a pantry of snacks that is supposed to keep employees happy even when they are treated as expendable.

      Cons

      Professionals are treated similar to school age children. Safety and wellness of employees is not a priority. Transparency of goals and advancement are not so transparent. Micromanagement Employees are treated as expendable by upper management.

      If They Are Trying To Hire You For Blaunch - Dont Do It

      Pros

      The first 3 months were great before we realized what had happened. Some awesome coworkers. Good medical benefits

      Cons

      This Company didn’t tell us the truth and have swept it under the rug saying it was miscommunication and structural changes within the company. Do not trust the timeline they give you, do not trust the job description they give you, and do not trust the salary they promise you for when you are promoted out of Blaunch. Don’t believe me? Go look up on LinkedIn the insane amount of turnover. No one from the original START class is here and the 1st and 2nd Blanch class have either quit or are openly talking about quitting, where they are interviewing, and their exit plans. It’s sad. Have they told you they are trying to hire around 30 people for this new Blaunch class? It’s because everyone, all the newer generation of sales people at the company have quit in the last year. Oh and the senior sales people? Long long gone! If they are still promoting this job by saying you can make 100k or more when you get promoted to a Relationship Partner or Client Service Partner ….. you need to run. If you want to work your tail off and cold call everyday for a year to be promoted to a job where you make 65k base plus 3k-10k commission TOPS, then this is the place for you. And no there is no negotiations.

      Pros

      It's a collegial, collaborative company full of subject matter experts passionate about their fields. Work-life balance is excellent, as are the retirement and family leave benefits.

      Cons

      Salaries are competitive at first, but growth over time is slow and there are limited opportunities for career advancement.
