I haven't heard much about them. Doesn't seem to be much in terms of employee reviews online, either. Hopefully someone here will have personal experience to share.

I haven't heard a whole lot. I asked one of my friend and she says they have good wlb. She also said the culture is good.

Aren't they pretty small? Would be surprised if you bumped into anyone on here from there. Though perhaps someone who has worked with them on something can shed some light.

I know them from my prior role evaluating funds at an investment consultant. They are a top tier GE firm but less well known than more established players like Spectrum or Great Hill. Good performance but not sure about latest fund. Can’t speak to culture or comp because I don’t know anyone there personally.

I switched to my current role with the verbal agreement that I would be third teir support - there will always be someone else between the customer and me. I recently found out that a new distributor doesn't want to stand up a support desk to do that for at least a year, leaving my team as first point of contact if anything goes wrong with a system.

Am I in a position where I can ask to renegotiate my compensation, even through I don't have a written job description?

I was diagnosed with major depression around 4 years ago. Told I’d have to be on antidepressants for 3-5 years. Sometimes I have severe depressive episodes. Recently it’s been impacting my work performance. I’ve also started taking more sick days as a coping mechanism since being at work seems to make it worse, especially granted I’m working with a d*ck of a manager. Always been a high performer (before this period, which really sucks). Really want to quit but don’t have a new job yet.Advice pls
