Great firm.... in theory

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

ProsAccess to the best market research and analysts you could ask for. Bernstein does an amazing job of hiring excellent people, who generally are both intelligent and personable, making the workplace enjoyable.

ConsExtremely limited career growth opportunitiy - they tell you the growth path is there, but once you work your ass off for years, you realize that it likely won't happen to you.

Advice to Senior ManagementExtremely hierarchical - upper management can be very difficult to pin down unless you are dealing with a client/situation they deem "worthy". Be straightforward with your employees about growth opportunities and tell them what is and is not available to them. Kraus (new CEO) has done a great job trying to turn the company around and keep talent employed, but needs more work.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
