Decent Hours, nice people, awful raises

Senior Associate (Former Employee) San Francisco, CA

ProsMy coworkers were friendly. Feedback was relatively encouraged. I rarely had to work past 6 or 7. My boss was great and I learned useful skills

It's a declining company in a declining industry (defined benefits). My bonus for outperformance was 5% of salary, not much incentive.

Advice to Senior ManagementIf you would like to retain talented individuals invest in them a bit more. The work life balance is nice but those who work hard for the company and outperform need to be given bigger raises and bonuses or else it doesn't seem worth it
