    It is what you make it

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

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

    ConsRoles 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 Senior ManagementRemove 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.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

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

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsThe 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.

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

    Great Culture

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsFriendly 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.

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