    Pros

    Awesome benefits, great people and opportunity is there if you perform and make an effort

    Cons

    Roles are becoming too specialized and redundant which doesnt allow for much outerdepartment exposure, leadership doesnt seem accountable for errors and promotion criteria is somewhat questionable

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remove the cancers quickly and if there are hiring mistakes act promptly. The culture depends on everyone having faith leadership. Once that erodes, its a domino effect.

    Solid company with great culture; lack of upward mobility for non-investment personnel

    Pros

    The culture at Jennison is very supportive and trusting; they'll only hire those they know can work independently so there's little micromanaging. Many employees have been there for 5+ years. Also, the benefits are top notch. Great work/life balance.

    Cons

    For those in a non-investment role, moving up can be a real challenge. Most people end up being in the same role for many, many years, which can sometimes lead to low employee morale. Management with last-minute projects and client 'fire drills' can be a challenge.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find ways for employees to gain exposure to new responsibilities and departments; create a more strategic approach when dealing with last-minute projects

    Pros

    Friendly culture, amazing benefits, many long service people who really care about the firm, low turnover and you get the feeling management really cares about the people.

    Cons

    The firm has experienced significant growth and the culture has changed from a more laid back environment to one with a more intense, busy pace.
