    Pros

    Bright, engaged colleagues who care about the success of projects and assignments. Flexibility to stretch an investment role as your expertise grows. Fantastic health and retirement benefits.

    Cons

    Advancement is slow - particularly for those in the early part of their careers (<10 years). While you may be successfully covering work above your pay grade, it will take extra time (1-2 years minimum) for your title and salary to catch up.

    Advice to Management

    Try harder to retain talented and motivated younger employees. Those of us who left, eventually did so for financial reasons.

    I worked at Wellington Management as an intern

    Pros

    Very helpful environment. Management is always open to questions and wants interns to learn as much as possible during their time at the company.

    Cons

    Because the company is so large and split between two buildings, it sometimes does not feel like a cohesive firm and is difficult to see the end result of your work.

    Advice to Management

    Have check in meetings with interns in order to explain how their role plays a part in the overall goals of the firm.

    Pros

    Wellington hires top notch talent and it shows when things go awry. Resiliency is amazing expecially in the IT world.

    Cons

    The bar is held high and you are constantly reaching for that level of excellence. Can be daunting.

    Advice to Management

    Open the door for introverts as well as extroverts. Recent presentation talks to that issue.
