Pros

Excellent exposure to multiple asset classes. You get to work with extremely intelligent and knowledgeable people. Reasonable hours and a good work/life balance. Good benefits and vacation, and management is very reasonable about letting people take vacation. They also try to make sure to stay informed about employee morale.

Cons

Lack of ability to be promoted beyond a certain level without a masters degree. Very low pay relative to the rest of the finance industry. The work can be very cyclical, so there are times when there is very little to do and other times when there is way too much to do.

Advice to Management

    Pros

    Collegial working culture, very good boss, excellent opportunity to meet the industry bigwigs. You get what you put in when it comes to learning about institutional investing, even if they may not be directly useful for work. Office is family-friendly, provides decent benefits.

    Cons

    Limited upside, not very much more to earn even if you are willing to put in the hours, work can get repetitive without scope for new responsibilities. Not necessarily the fault of the company but also because of what clients want at the end of the day. Also, firm is one step removed from the direct markets; working here may offer you access to that side of the fence eventually but most people I know who have done so invested at least one or two years of time at CA first

    Pros

    Great small team. Everybody gets along and cares about one another. Good opportunities to learn and grow in a smaller office that's backed by the research and facilities of a much larger firm.

    Cons

    Work can get a little repetitive at the IA level.

    Advice to Management

    Keep going on!
