I worked at AllianceBernstein full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Good hours, people are generally nice, some good perks, and could do really well if new strategy succeeds.

Cons

Pay, Layoffs, Firm is Repositioning, Culture is trying to find itself in new paradigm, and subpar pay (although can be great if in the right place)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep at it... the firm needs the face lift

    A Great Firm Gone Wrong

    • Culture & Values
    • Career Opportunities
    Former Employee - Marketing Manager in New York, NY
    Former Employee - Marketing Manager in New York, NY

    I worked at AllianceBernstein full-time

    Pros

    A lot of smart people. Hard working. Benefits are better than most. Continued emphasis on research (although people are getting stretched too thin to do it to the same depth that had been traditional).

    Cons

    Constant layoffs and reshufflings make it difficult to get any momentum, either careerwise or businesswise. Leadership (especially the CEO) doesn't inspire the staff. The firm just seems adrift and taking on water. People are stretched too thin to consistently deliver high-quality work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop trying to be all things to all people. Point people in one direction, and provide some clear leadership. And when you're constantly laying off people and increasing workloads, all the talk about how much you care about staff is just lip service.

    Seems to be turning the corner

    I have been working at AllianceBernstein full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great internal growth opportunities and commitment to retaining top talent. Sales and AUM seem to be turning to corner after a tough couple years. Senior management and many employees feel positive about the momentum and direction the company is going.

    Cons

    Still haven't fully shaken off the past couple years of outflows and layoffs. Certain groups still feeling pressure.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep being supportive of key talent and keep employees engaged in recovery.
