    Pros

    There are a lot of really smart, committed, forward-thinking people in this organization--and, given the relatively entrepreneurial culture, it is possible to change the company by getting out in front of an initiative and pushing hard. The quality of the work being done here is truly a cut--and often several cuts--above what's going on in other parts of the industry. Finally (and this may sound weird, in these times), this is a company that really has an ethical center. There is a kind of old-world probity to the way that the company is managed and the way people treat their work.

    Cons

    The company is certainly in more of a growth mode than it has been historically--and growth inevitably means change. So far, those changes have been good changes, but that's something that requires constant care and feeding. The concern is that senior management continue to stay focused on the right kinds of strategic growth for the company--and communicate the growth plan (if and as it changes) to everyone throughout the organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to work hard at listening to employees throughout the organization--not just listening to senior managers. Continue the ongoing focus on quality and ethical standards. Keep focused on long-term strategic vision, not quarterly financials (which, so far, has not been an issue...but is always a bit of a worry when you're majority-owned by a private equity company).

    Pros

    This is a company that really puts effort into hiring good people and teaching them how to be great researchers. They really train you to do well in your current position and help you understand how to get to the next level. They hire out of good programs and help those hired in grow through their career with the company. I have had good managers and I think leadership is doing a good job in a tough market. I have never worked at a place that values their employees and the work they do more than this company.

    Cons

    Benefits aren't great now but hopefully will improve in the next year or so.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to offer positive feedback and recognition for good work and listen to your employees. A good work environment goes a long way in encouraging people to do their best work possible. Continue to find new training opportunities to help analysts increase their technical skills and RMs to improve in their day-to-day management skills.
