    Non-Profit Asset Management Niche

    Director (Former Employee) Wilton, CT

    ProsServing non-profit organizations, i.e. "the Mission" is noble. You develop client relationships like you will never have on Wall Street. Yes, you try to cross-sell and increase AUM, but it is consultative and not overly pushy.

    ConsSenior management is arrogant and stays up in its "ivory tower," remaining disconnected from the rest of the employees. The CEO likes to intimidate and has a bizarre and out of touch opinion on dress in the workplace. They are losing sight of what the true mission is and trying to be something they're not cut out to be.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLighten up. The "we're a not-for profit that is not-for loss" commentary is uncomfortable. Managing by metrics doesn't have a qualitative component and doesn't incent the right activities.
