    I have been working at SEI Investments full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    SEI has an open environment which fosters collaboration between team members and also interdepartmentally. For the most part the employees are extremely dedicated and hard working.

    Cons

    At times management can be less than forthcoming with sharing information which goes against the open environment policy and creates a heavy rumor mill environment.

    Pros

    Friendly people, they wanted and helped me to learn the system and the job

    Cons

    No walls means that privacy is at a minimum. With the work I was doing however, this was actually more of a benefit as I could easily just turn my head and ask any questions to my co-workers or walk ten feet and ask my boss.
