Pros

Working for a family office permits you flexible hours, travel opportunities, some of the best opportunities to network and good pay.

Cons

Working for a family office requires a very significant amount of personal discipline and also a keen sense for networking.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

My only piece of advice, well maybe not only, to the management team would be to be even more flexible with work hours.

    Pros

    There are some very nice people, as well as some very competent and entrepreneurial partners. Firm leaders think they've got the best company on the planet and want everyone else to think so too. In fact, they are genuinely surprised to find that you don't just love the heck out of the place and take it super personally when people leave. Top and bottom line growth every year but mostly through an ambitious acquisition strategy and very, very tight pockets.

    Cons

    Cult-like, weird devotion to the CEO, Gordy Viere. No faith or investment in infrastructure and people. Very, very cheap. They want you to be an automaton and just do what they tell you rather than apply your talents to your work. Unsophisticated infratstucture and old-school good-ol-boy club environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put a little faith in your people already. And quit demanding this crazy "emotional ownership" you talk about so relentlessly. You can't expect people to be "emotionally invested" when you don't invest in them first.
