    I have been working at Eaton Vance full-time for more than 3 years

    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.

    I worked at Eaton Vance

    Pros

    Relaxed work atmosphere, excellent work-life balance, coworkers friendly and kind, nice location, very little stress at work, patient management, great company cafeteria

    Cons

    While almost everyone is very friendly and "nice", this often leads to an inability to directly address issues which are lurking, obviously, beneath the surface. A lot goes undiscussed when it would be positive to bring it out into the light. The pace of advancement is a bit slow and the compensation is low relative to peers (although this fact is balanced by the atmosphere being more relaxed and less stressful)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    While almost everyone is very friendly and "nice", this often leads to an inability to directly address issues which are lurking, obviously, beneath the surface. A lot goes undiscussed when it would be positive to bring it out into the light. It would be positive for people to start address things that are bothering them directly and to feel encouraged to do so. It is not "nice" to hide frustrations in the long term, though in the short term it may seem that way.

    I have been working at Eaton Vance

    Pros

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

    Cons

    under 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 ManagementAdvice

    Improve career progression and delegate responsibility in equity department.
