    I have been working at Capital Group

    Pros

    The benefits are top notch, from the Health, 401k and work life balance to NAV for American Funds purchases.

    Cons

    Technology is archaic and very slow to adapt/improve. Decision making is done at a snails pace. Limit opportunities in certain departments/locations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get with the times. You don't have to be Google, but it doesn't hurt to think like a progressive company.

    Pros

    culture, interesting assignments, compensation, company paid master retirement program

    Cons

    gaining agreement among users who had diverse objectives

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    when designing new systems engage actual business stakeholders rather than operational staff who may not be familiar with the rational for why the current platforms operate as they do.

    I worked at Capital Group

    Pros

    Great salary and compensation package.

    Cons

    Very stepford-like. Check your personality at the door when you accept the job offer. No room for growth unless you work in IRV or LAO. Takes way too long to make and implement decisions. Don't think too out of the box or disagree with key people or you will be labeled disagreeable and hard to work with.

    Pros

    Culture here is unbeatable by far. They baby you through training and overtime is all you can eat. Amazing irvine campus, cafeteria is cheap and good, co workers are supportive

    Cons

    Mid-pay decent to say the least, it's a good career but slow to promote , benefits are good but doesn't make up for the 37k-40k you make annually

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
