    I worked at Babson Capital Management

    Pros

    --Diversity in the product gives you the ability to move around.
    --Strong reluctance to fire people during the downturn. It was more likely that people would move around.
    --Well capitalized firm (as it is the investment management arm of MassMutual)

    Cons

    --Sometimes management looked kindly at the wrong co-workers. For example, a colleague out-and-out plagarized a company report by using a sell-side analyst writeup and presenting it as his own. I am still scratching my head as to why management thought this person was a good analyst as this was done on many occasions.
    --Teamwork needs to be improved. Portfolio managers frequently want to work in "silos" with analysts.
    --Springfield is a tough gig for younger and unmarried people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    --There is too much emphasis on the structured products, such as CLO's.
    --Increase the independence of analysis by being less dependent on what the sell-side thinks.
