    I worked at DWS Scudder

    Pros

    Good benefits -- a lot of paid time off, four to six weeks upon starting, really good for any industry.

    Cons

    Sr management is constantly changing. Very hard to have continuity. Not always understanding of their direct reports' responsibilities or workloads.

    I worked at DWS Scudder

    Pros

    Great Benefits - good vacation package

    Cons

    Significant management turnover which leads to employees trying to prove themselves over and over. The Funds' performance needs to improve in order to help sell the products.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to employees at lower levels. They speak directly to clients a lot.
