    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

    equity research review

    Equity Research Associate (Current Employee)
    Boston, MA

    Prosvery good work life balance. very nice people. can learn a lot, but it depends on whether you are working for a good analyst.

    Consunder paid versus other RAs in Boston. coverage and exposure is limited unless you work for an analyst that delegates well. No set career path. The RA program isn't finite. There are RAs that have been here for 1 year, or 7 years...no set amount of time until you get promoted or "encouraged" to go to be school.

    Advice to Senior ManagementImprove career progression and delegate responsibility in equity department.

    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.

    Hugely positive overall

    (Current Employee)
    London, England (UK)

    ProsProbably depends on the team you work for but in mine:

    Intellectually rewarding - give you responsibilities early
    Nice people - good corporate culture
    Decent hours - good work/personal life balance
    Good compensation & benefits

    ConsBoston/US-centric culture
    Too nice people maybe at times
    Too shy about international expansion - to the extent it is really a priority as stated

    Advice to Senior ManagementTry to maintain the small company/entrepreneurial culture as the company grows
    Push more for the organization to adapt to the demands of international expansion - both people and processes
