    I have been working at Guggenheim Partners full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I honestly have never been more challenged, or learned more, than in my first few years at Guggenheim. After graduating business school I was looking to leave a big financial services firm in search of a less bureaucratic world where I could actually have ideas and see them through. I found this in spades at Guggenheim. I feel like I work among some of the smartest, hardest-working people in the industry. Since it's privately-owned, with 50% employee ownership, there is a deep sense of stewardship and an extra motivation. The compensation system rewards top performers very fairly - the difference is, at Guggenheim, top performers have the ability to reach their potential - unlike the big behemoth financial services firms.

    Cons

    If you can't roll-up your sleeves and think harder than ever before, this isn't a good fit for you. A non-bureaucratic environment with lots of activity means you have to take initiative and not wait for people to tell you specifically what to do. It's dynamic, which can cause some people problems. The organization is adapting well to rapid growth, but its not the traditional, big bank environment, that's for sure.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to invest in the culture of the firm and in your employee's. Communication is key.

    I worked at Guggenheim Partners full-time

    Pros

    Very entrepreneurial environment and very talented investment professionals. Fast growth and many opportunities to make a name for yourself

    Cons

    growing pains as are expected with a fast moving company but disorganization has not been addressed. Work/Life balance is very poor as taking vacation is looked down upon which creates tension.

    Advice to Management

    Work on organization, create a more teamwork oriented and management supportive work environment. Improve work/life balance
