    Pros

    Preps junior level people for grad school. Fast paced work environment with really smart people

    Cons

    No way to move from junior to senior level internally (PhD required)

    Advice to Management

    Overtime pay on top of salary is HUGE benefit that helps immensely on those long nights and weekends of work. Not all good economists are good managers though...

  2. Smart people, interesting work, long hours, good pay

    Pros

    Compensation is probably best in the industry; co-workers are incredibly intelligent; PTO is very generous

    Cons

    Weak performers are rarely kicked to the curb; there's a somewhat perverse incentive structure where top performers are made to work more; performance-based bonuses would be a way of alleviating this, but they are pretty equal across all analysts
