    Pros

    Management rewards smart people. There are some really genuine people there. People work hard and generally get along better than similarly-sized companies. Best working environment of any asset management company.

    Cons

    Extremely catty and superficial contingent of administrative staff. Pretty much impossible to get fired - most people don't take advantage of that/work hard, but there are a few who skate along...and those also tend to be the most obnoxious. For such a professional firm, it's too bad that there are a few who think they are "mean girls" in high school still.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lateral/peer reviews - be willing to get tough on personnel issues (no real HR may be why this hiccough exists), open up the doors of opportunity a little wider for individuals with more promise/motivation - generally, this company is better than most at this...but there is always room for improvement.
