Pros

Interesting People to work with and/or work for. There are some very good manager and senior managers employed here. HQ is in a good location in NYC.

Cons

Pay is generally below the industry norm. There is a big breakdown in communication. You don't feel like you have a path/guidance for opportunities to grow.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't be afraid to let your employees know what is going on within the company. Have a better new hire on-boarding process so new employees can learn the ins/outs of AB and learn what the company has to offer. Create an actual and valuable mentor program. Think more about the company then the needs of upper management all the time.

    Pros

    colleagues, I've met some really great people to keep in touch with as well as work with throughout my time there

    Cons

    tracking for moving up is pretty low and not guided well. people who have potential don't necessarily get the recognition they deserve even if they put themselves out there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    listen to the employees, think outside of the box, take a less conservative and more progress approach to leading the group, and think of the bigger picture.

    Pros

    Great brand name and some really smart people for sure
    Access to top notch research from the sell-side analysts
    Great food in cafeteria, convenient central location close to train network
    Can eat lunch in your office!
    Fairly good flex-time options, if need be
    Good exit options, when you have spent a few years in this firm

    Cons

    Limited growth, if you do not belong to the old boys club
    Low employee morale, compounded by gray walls
    Lack of meaningful diversity in the workplace
    Lack of an international focus, much of the work is domestic and that explains the inherent geographical risk

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please encourage diversity in the workplace
