    Pros

    Flat hierarchy/easy to take on responsibility early...People don't ascribe much value to rank (analyst, associate, etc.) in terms of what you're qualified/allowed to do on the desk.
    People are very friendly here, much more than you'll find in sales & trading/ most hedge funds.
    Managers take an interest in employee development

    Cons

    Pay here is less than pay at many other buyside opportunities, e.g. a PIMCO or Double Line
    Hard to navigate different arms of the organization/figure out where each business line fits into the big picture
