    I worked at Brown Brothers Harriman full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great place to work. Good people good benefits. Lots of flexibility within roles.

    Cons

    Management is all about the inner circle. If you're not in it, you're not going anywhere. It's more about who you drink with than what you do at work. Sr management is great middle management not so much.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to people and understand what people are doing. Don't just assume because someone is friends with someone else they deserve a promotion.

    I have been working at Brown Brothers Harriman full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Generally the people are fun and smart. It's a small firm so you can get to know people at every level.

    Cons

    It's losing the family feel. Perhaps they need to in order to be successful, but it's become cutthroat and competitive. Everyone is worried they will lose their jobs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be good managers, don't just expect middle management to be good managers, but the partners and MDs need to do the same and model the behavior.
