I worked at Mesirow Financial

Pros

Good work and personal balance. Able to learn new things and add some credentials. Nice office space with some good amenities

Cons

Used to be an entrepreneurial environment and allowed workers to build their careers. Many of the that changed once the previous CEO passed away. No longer the same firm with the same type of culture. Too much nepotism and family members reporting to each other.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

More personal interaction with the employees. Management seems unapproachable since they have added many layers. Better communication needs to be implemented

    I worked at Mesirow Financial

    Pros

    Good work life balance. Nice offices, good downtown location. Pay is fairly competitive with the industry, especially considering the work life balance.

    Cons

    The other reviews on this site rang very true to me; there are no opportunities to move within the firm, and the firm is afraid of change and technology. Also, because departments are small and there is no interaction between them, there are a lot of bullies that are allowed to run wild. Read some of these other reviews and you'll see what I mean. There's no accountability, because senior management has no idea what's going on in the literally 100 different business units that don't ever work with each other. Managing directors get to own their little empires, which means lots of favoritism. Also, there's a major lack of training, which means new employees have a hard time doing their jobs effectively.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have a firm with only 1200 people but 100 busines units, and each is run completely independently. You can't possibly pay attention to what's going on with all that. So consolidate in a meaningful way, and stop letting your middle management act like they're the CEOs of their own tiny companies.
