    Good at what it does but not a fit in my case

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Carlson Capital full-time

    Pros

    - Nice benefits (food and health benefits provided) - better culture than many comparable firms (not always warm, but much more collegial than many places in the industry) - good work resources (any research and tools you could care to name) - I admire the founder - Better work-life balance than many places in the industry

    Cons

    - Short-term focused, it's part of the business model (which the firm as a whole does well) but this either works well for you or it doesn't. There are plenty of worse places for this, though. - Focus on batting average as opposed to slugging can be frustrating - but again, that's the model - Experience very much dictated by your PM - if you don't get along or don't see eye-to-eye you won't last long - Compensation highly variable but there are certainly places that pay better - Mid-level decision makers seem to struggle with dual role - Limited interest in improving your skills

    Advice to Management

    I think you have a very sensible model, it is just not for everyone.
