    I have been working at Neuberger Berman full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The culture is very conducive to a healthy work/life balance. They truly care that you manage your life in a way that fits to your needs (working from home, sick days, leaving early when needed, etc.). The unspoken philosophy is that as long as you get your work done efficiently and done well, you have great flexibility. The mentorship opportunities are also fantastic throughout the firm regardless of your title. People are extremely willing and happy to help. Finally, the firm's dedication to philanthropic endeavors is tremendous and genuine across the whole firm. It's a true advantage to working there.

    Cons

    Training for new employees is a constant struggle, but an area of improvement the firm is aware of. Compensation for back office jobs is thankless and often unrecognized. Analytics of work flow can prove the discrepancy in work and compensation.

    I have been working at Neuberger Berman full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Depending on group and manager there is flex time and the ability to sometimes work from home

    Cons

    Lack of mobillity and training for those employees who want to advance. At some times, Management's view appears to be if you don't like things, leave.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    (1) Provide more training such as mentor programs or basic training sessions for those who want to advance or transition into other areas. The lunch and learn is nice, but not realistic to help one advance or obtain real hands on experience. (2) 401k match needs to be better
