    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    The associate group is a young and very collegiate (you can get help when you are overworked). It is a great experience for recent grads.

    Cons

    The pay is a little depressing when you are there until 3 or 4 in the morning every day for a month. There is almost no possibility for career advancement for associates. It's three years and out.

    Advice to Management

    Associate morale gets pretty low and the perception is that management does not care. It is a client-focused firm so client requests must be honored, but management should do more to bolster morale.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    It is a young fun work environment. It was my first job out of college and it provided a solid understanding of different investment types. Since leaving the Company it is my understanding that they had outside consultants come in and subsequently made positive changes in the way they run the performance reporting department.

    Cons

    Overall I found it to be an extremely unprofessional work environment. They had extremely high turnover. The people who were your superiors were often only a few years older and their assessments were often biased based on personal relationships. I don't think Analyst take enough pride in their work.

    Advice to Management

    I can only speak to the way the Performance Reporting department was run, and in my opinion, when I was an employee, it was a disaster. Work was not distributed evenly among Associates and I worked many late nights and weekends without being compensated for my additional hours.
