    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I worked at Wellington Management full-time

    Pros

    Very fast paced and collaborative environment
    There is never a dull moment
    Some flexibility is offered but mostly need to be in the office
    Always surrounded by smart and talented people

    Cons

    Sometimes collaborative approach slows things down
    Growth is limited
    As company has grown, new people finding difficult to assimilate with culture
    More corporate culture is kicking in which was never there before

    I worked at Wellington Management as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    Team work environment, smart and articulate management, opportunities for growth, open door policy to speak with not only your team members, but also members of other teams and management

    Cons

    Culture can be a shock to many. The suit and tie on an every day basis can make a dent on many new college grad employees. Lack of training for the role you'll be working on

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Adequate training structure based on the needs of the team or internal clients

    I have been working at Wellington Management as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great company culture and you are not treated like an intern but rather a fellow employee. You learn a lot and people are always willing to help.

    Cons

    I wish I had gotten a little more exposure to the market side but the experience is overall what you make of it.

    I have been working at Wellington Management full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Wellington offers a collegial atmosphere where everyone works as a team and helps out one another. The company is known for their long interview process, because they are focused to hire the best in the industry. And it is truly a blessing, because you work with intelligent professionals from whom you can learn a lot. Wellington offers education reimbursement for the MBA program and the CFA certificate. It also offers a competitive 401K. I have listed some of the pros below.

    Work life balance
    Great culture
    Work with intelligent professionals
    Competitive compensation

    Cons

    Because it is a great company to work for, there is a low turnover and therefore harder to move up the ladder.

    I have been working at Wellington Management as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    The people at Wellington are great. Most people are very friendly and helpful. There are a great deal of intelligent people willing to share their knowlegde. The feel is also very relaxed.

    Cons

    It seems very complacent and there is not a ton of movement. It is a great place to intern or work when you have a family but I am not sure how I would feel starting my career here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give more incentive.
