    I have been working at Albourne Partners Limited full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    People in the company are generally very friendly and collaborative. Some nice office perks depending on the office, team meals, weekly drink events, fun outdoor activities, etc. Company really tries to get people involved in the culture. Flexible with regards to scheduling, in that staff take their vacations and are expected to and can work out of other offices when traveling.

    Cons

    Not much in the way of career guidance. Although the structure is pretty flat (Partner or not Partner) there is no guidance given to young professionals of how they can become a Partner or move up the ladder. A lot of young professionals are confused as to how to progress their careers within the company, whereas at other organizations, there is some sort of title recognition or something of that sort. Most Partner level professionals have come from outside the organization (where they have made their money) and don't look to be making way for younger hungry professionals.

    Pay is well below market, but that's the price one pays for flexible scheduling and strong company culture.

    Like all organizations, there is politics but most of this is at the more senior level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote more people from within, more career guidance.

    Pros

    Culture: Every office is very close-knit. There is certainly an "Albourne" culture - people are very friendly, office happy hours every week, very smart people but no elitism. A once per year Firm offsite, held at a different location in the world (last three have been Cyprus, Oxford, and Amsterdam ) is the best week of the year. If you work hard and are smart and entrepreneurial, you will do great at Albourne. If you need someone to hold your hand, you won't last long.

    Cons

    Pay is way under market but the lifestyle makes up for it (nearly 30 vacation days that you can actually use), lots of travel on the due diligence side.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work.

    Pros

    Unique view of Hedge Fund world, very exclusive clientèle, events and offsites can be fun

    Cons

    Small company founders do not know how to run or scale business, nepotism, no accountability for management, no planning, work outside HF is unappreciated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They need to adopt a culture of integrity and fairness while stepping back to let innovators lead and grow their business.
