    Eaton Vance a great place to work

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Boston, MA

    ProsThe corporate culture is wonderful. They treat their employees fairly, offer generous benefits, a very attractive work environment, and good team values. Good work/life balance with 9-5 hours.

    ConsSometimes the company can be slow to implement change.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStep up to the plate and add to staff as needed. The company is very slow to grow its ranks, as it doesn't ever want to have to cut back on staff.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Excellent if your part of the Inner Circle

    Systems Administrator (Former Employee)
    Boston, MA

    ProsGreat benefits, employees are really treated with respect. If you're looking for a place to go retire, this is a good one.

    ConsOffice politics in most areas are of DC proportions. EV is not afraid to spend money on middle management to sit around and talk about what work the rest of us are doing/not doing.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRemember there's more to life than numbers.

    Stagnant opportunities for entry-level

    Mutual Funds Services Representative (Current Employee)

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Good But....

    Analyst (Former Employee)
    Boston, MA

    ProsGreat company values as rich history translates to classiness. Good benefit, treat their employees fair, take care of the employees with generous bonus and profit sharing, and also has great reputation in the asset management industry.

    ConsTypical office politics, lots of people got held back due to overzealous managers, employees tend to get "lost" in the company, and most folks use EV as a stepping stone rather than long term career.

    Good work environment with a great work/life balance but poor raises and little advancement possibilities at times.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsNine to five work day, no overtime expected. They treat you like an adult in terms of sick leave and doctors appointments

    ConsPoor raises, not all employees get bonuses, little promotional leverage in some departments

    Advice to Senior ManagementCreate career paths for all employees and/or give bonuses to all

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great benefits, low pay

    P&A Coordinator (Current Employee)
    Boston, MA

    ProsEaton Vance is a great company and has excellent benefits. However employee pay is very low compared with other companies. It also depends which department you work in. Many have little to no growth potential or areas for advancement.

    ConsNot for the company as a whole but in my department, days were long and boring. More and more processes are being automated so the job is basically mindless. Pay low and no opportunities for advancement.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
