    Pros

    The people at EV are amazing. There isn't anyone that I do not like working with. People are friendly and helpful. There is team atmosphere.

    Cons

    There are some processes that are still very manual and could benefit with automation and an investment in technology.

    Advice to Management

    The behind the scene work needs to be reviewed and automated to better business practices. Compliance and legal should be expanded to handle the increase in work .

    Pros

    Nothing comes to mind. They rely on their distributors to sell the product. I would recommend anyone considering using our products to look at low fee market index as the performance will surely outperform any EV fund in the medium to long run.

    Cons

    I actively discourage anyone who has potential and the means to get a better job because this place is a death spiral. Low quality investment manager. No exit opportunities since few of heard of this place.

    Advice to Management

    Return capital to investors and fold up. Stop wasting shareholder equity on worthless acquisitions. This is an underperforming shop.

    Cons

    Where shall I begin? Mediocre comes to mind when I think of Eaton Vance for the quality of work produced. The misallocation of resources and truly incompetent culture that's pervasive here is unbelievable. There shouldn't be room for investment managers like Eaton Vance as the service level is far below acceptable.

    Advice to Management

    Time to change it up and transfer funds to more knowledgeable firms.

    Pros

    The culture is second to none. No matter what level you are your opinion matters and there are no egos wth upper management. Plenty of exposure to all parts of the company. Your experience at EV is what you make of it!

    Cons

    If there is some aspect of the company to complain about then I haven't come across it yet. Hopefully I never will.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to maintain the current culture and provide any guidance / career advice to younger employees. Encourage everyone to take advantage of aspects of EV that are not offered other places and to get involved with various company events, charities, etc as it is a FANTASTIC way to network here.
