    Stable but behind the curve, too slow to react to this ever changing business.

    Current Employee - Research Analyst in New York, NY
    Current Employee - Research Analyst in New York, NY

    I have been working at AllianceBernstein

    Pros

    Great work life balance, benefits are good, cafeteria is good. A rich history, though there has been drift since 2009.

    Cons

    Inability to adapt to the changing environment has resulted in diminished opportunity and pay. It is also very difficult to advance and usually promote from outisde.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It is time to shake things up - continuing to do what worked 10 years ago is not working! I applaud rebranding to a fixed income firm, at least we are accentuaing our strengths.
