Pros

The breadth of investment related activities associated with plan sponsor management and the money management industry

Cons

Long hours of monotonous work

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Strategically introduce junior people to meetings and given them a small role earlier on in their careers to build self esteem and client perspective

    Good place, but not what it once was

    Pros

    Interesting and challenging client work and talented colleagues. Could be an even greater place if not attached to a public traded parent company (MMC). Clients are high-quality, brand names, but client work itself is often not as interesting as it could be due to lower buying level.

    Cons

    Increasing burden around administrative tasks and less personal development opportunities given cost control pressures. Quarterly performance targets drive behaviors counter to long-term growth of the firm.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    minimize admin burden and process BS.

    Pros

    Most co-workers and managers have been okay to work with, people are friendly, benefits are okay. there does seem to be room for advancement if you are driven and if it's your goal to move up.

    Cons

    Raises are poor. Also, you have to be a certain level to get a bonus, it doesn't seem like they value the support staff. Communication is terrible - each office or department seems to work on their own and it's near impossible to figure out what everyone does or what resources are available. Very disorganized...
