    Pros

    The benefits were great and they made sure employees were taken care of; profit sharing, retirement plans, etc. They treated you with respect. It is a well known and well established company, which always attracted individuals who wanted to work for the company. Training was always made available for those who were interested in learning new skills, but also for those who wanted to further their education.

    Cons

    More than the fair share of office politics - depended on which department you worked in and what manager you worked for. Certain roles didn't allow for advancement within the company. And the salary isn't as competitive
    as it could be, unless you were a contractor.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Office 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 ManagementAdvice

    Remember there's more to life than numbers.

    Pros

    The 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.

    Cons

    Sometimes the company can be slow to implement change.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Step 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.

    Pros

    Great 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.

    Cons

    Typical 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.

    Pros

    Eaton 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.

    Cons

    Not 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.
