    Pros

    Great benefits, wonderful "Non Sr. Management" colleagues to work with, great profit sharing. CEO Is a very intelligent person and will skillfully lead the firm.

    Cons

    New Sr. Mgmt brought a ton of politics and their untalented friends to devastate a once terrific environment to work in. It used to be a place that you enjoyed to come in to work and you were proud to be there and wanted the firm to do well. Moral is low, motivation is low and politics rule this place of work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Open your eyes and ears, the new policies and regime is not working. You've lost a good number of skilled and devoted workers, and will lose more from what I've heard, if you don't rid the place of the politics.

    Pros

    Some people are very knowledgeable about the industry and are great to work with because they are wiling to share their knowledge. However, you need to be proactive. People don't readily share information.

    Cons

    High turnover and senior management's view that new blood is good for the business. Does not develop people once you're in. There are dead weights who are there to just collect a paycheck and has no growth potential which impedes the growth of the group and ultimately the firm.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize those with talent and can be groomed for internal growth. High turnover in any group should be sign to senior management that the person in charge may not be the right person leading the group. Stability and growth cannot be achieved when there is high turnover and lack of recognition to those that can help firm achieve its goals.

    I worked at Jennison Associates

    Pros

    benefits, free drinks, holiday party, can usually leave by 6-6:30pm, not much else

    Cons

    no career growth
    stupid people promoted if favorites
    investment professionals higher class citizens
    who you know more important than what you know/if youre good at your job
    lots of turnover

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    career growth is key. dont take away from benefits or free drinks. only thing you have going once someone is mid-career. give people opportunities to interact with management more, and not just favorites.
