    I worked at Brown Brothers Harriman full-time for more than 5 years


    There was a real family at atmosphere at BBH. I definitely felt as if I were on a team and I was a part of something. There is a great work/life balance and no expectation that you will have to stay late to finish something. There is a definite understanding that you have a life outside of work and that work should not interfere with that. I felt supported by my manager and knew that she had my back.


    It is hard to get a head at BBH. Very few positions open up so there is very little upward mobility. You tend to get stuck in whatever position you are in. Also the pay and bonus structure is a bit conservative. Your peers at other firms will be making more money.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to rotate the entry level positions so there is some mobility for employees.
