Former Employee - Analyst

Disapproves of CEO

Pros

-Good work/life balance -Able to work with some really talented and intelligent individuals -For a junior person, you are able to learn alot about the industry and gain some meaningful exposure to the financial industry

Cons

-Little to no growth opportunities unless it's a lateral move -Compensation is well below market -Recognition is only given to those "superstars" within the firm -Cost cutting is very apparent, so much so that most employees are still thinking, "So, who's next on the block?"

Other Employee Reviews for AllianceBernstein

  1. Formerly very good company being dragged down by uncertainty and lack of direction from the top

    • Work/Life Balance
    • Career Opportunities
    • Comp & Benefits
    • Senior Management
    Former Employee - Vice President
    Former Employee - Vice President
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    There are a lot of really bright, committed people there; the investment team and mid-level management are trying very hard. Day-to-day interactions are generally quite good. Innovative investment strategies are being developed but it doesn't always seem like they're implemented.

    Cons

    Rather like being a well-paid orc in Mordor -- you may like your fellow orcs, but there's a pervasive sense of doom and a sense that as far as the top management is concerned, you're cannon fodder. It's gets a bit futile after a while.

    Advice to Management

    Can we get Lew Sanders back? He might have been wrong that last time, but at least he communicated and there was a decisiveness that's been lacking since he left.


  2. Great

    Pros

    Smart, respectful staff High quality office space Honest high ethics

    Cons

    Pay slightly low since the market downturn

    Advice to Management

    AB gained it's reputation by being honest well informed financial advisors. In these times when even large institutions have equated swindling the public to smart business practice, the honest companies will eventually rise to the top. Stay the course, don't give in. People everywhere are fed up with schemes and swindles.
