    I have been working at Bessemer Trust Company

    Pros

    There are LOTs of perks and employee benefits. Private cafeteria with deeply discounted prices, good food and an executive chef, company paid health care for the entire family. People come here and stay for a long time. There is opportunity to growth, education is encouraged and educational opportunities are abundant. The people are open and friendly. It seems like a lot of people start here right out of college and stay. So far I have not met any diva managers. The one or 2 that were here were quickly gone. There are frequent job openings with lots of incentives for employees to recommend friends.

    Cons

    This place can be kind of stuffy and formal. There is no such thing as casual Friday. Some people insist on being addressed as Mr. or Mrs. so and so. The starting salary was a little low, but once you add in other perks its fine.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Honestly I don't know of any advice that I would offer to management. I really like this place. Despite the fact that it's very formal, people are open and friendly. Employees are genuinely happy to work here (for the most part).

    Too Political

    I worked at Bessemer Trust Company

    Pros

    Decent salary, professional work environment, top shelf benefits

    Cons

    Very political culture that doesn't reward actual competence . Difficult asset allocation models designed more for legacy trust accounts than to fit individual situations. As an account manager you have very little leeway to customize your account management process.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Become more nimble
