Pros

The culture at Jennison is very supportive and trusting; they'll only hire those they know can work independently so there's little micromanaging. Many employees have been there for 5+ years. Also, the benefits are top notch. Great work/life balance.

Cons

For those in a non-investment role, moving up can be a real challenge. Most people end up being in the same role for many, many years, which can sometimes lead to low employee morale. Management with last-minute projects and client 'fire drills' can be a challenge.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Find ways for employees to gain exposure to new responsibilities and departments; create a more strategic approach when dealing with last-minute projects

    Pros

    Friendly culture, amazing benefits, many long service people who really care about the firm, low turnover and you get the feeling management really cares about the people.

    Cons

    The firm has experienced significant growth and the culture has changed from a more laid back environment to one with a more intense, busy pace.

    Pros

    Some people are very knowledgeable about the industry and are great to work with because they are wiling to share their knowledge. However, you need to be proactive. People don't readily share information.

    Cons

    High turnover and senior management's view that new blood is good for the business. Does not develop people once you're in. There are dead weights who are there to just collect a paycheck and has no growth potential which impedes the growth of the group and ultimately the firm.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize those with talent and can be groomed for internal growth. High turnover in any group should be sign to senior management that the person in charge may not be the right person leading the group. Stability and growth cannot be achieved when there is high turnover and lack of recognition to those that can help firm achieve its goals.
