Employee Reviews


  • “We respect on another’s time, which is the most important thing for me. Our SVP, VP, and associates don't mind stepping in to relieve workloads. There are times when we work a ton and clock 80 hours a week. However, it’s not the norm and always acknowledged.”
  • “Very employee-friendly environment and workplace, from the top down.”
  • “Difficulty of getting away from work is not because of management or policy but the vast opportunity in our group and responsibilities as a manager.”
  • “Our vacation days don't roll over, but we’re very busy so it’s hard to use all of them. I think it would be fair to either be compensated for the days we don't use or have a forced amount of time you must take.”

Getting Hired Here


  • “We’re definitely looking for someone who’s going to roll up their sleeves and pitch in. Diversity is a big part of our hiring.”

One thing I liked most about Loop was the people and the interactions from my answers to certain questions. Loop is looking for extremely intelligent individuals who are technically capable but also have a personality that’s suitable for the culture. Loop is like a family. and you feel that while interviewing.”
  • “The process can be slow with lengthy periods of no movement on our end.”
  • “I thought the process was typical of a Wall Street firm.”
