    Quality exposure, terrible management

    Former Employee - Analyst

    I worked at Dean & Company full-time

    Pros

    -Decent pay
    -Reasonable hours (depending on who you're working for)
    -Early exposure/responsibility

    Cons

    -Managers don't know how to manage. The company generally hires PHDs for these roles and many of them would make better analysts than managers.
    -Ridiculously poor culture and core values. There's no philosophical foundation for this company. Managers/VPs do not communicate with one another (despite the fact that you might be working for 2 at the same time) and set the tone for the rest of the company
    -Layoffs without warning fairly typical
    -Politics behind closed doors, HR & support staff are valued more than analysts by the President
    -The most passive aggressive company ever. Analysts reviewed negatively for being "too direct"
    -No feedback except during review periods every 6 months
