    Pros

    Good opportunities for students in between their bachelor and graduate degrees. Brand name. Growing. Somewhat international. Very focused on mutual funds.

    Cons

    Opportunity comes at the price of being overworked and underpaid. Emphasis is on keeping costs low in North America and outsourcing to China. Lots of politics and nasty behavior behind closed doors. Unless you started the company with Joe Mansueto, you are usually out in a few years. There are few opportunities for seasoned executives and limited room at the top. The perennial insiders make all the big bucks from their stock positions. Company has lost its way since going public.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change out the Chicago insiders who have been with Joe for years and have stopped innovating. They will not move on until they are pushed. Return to the principles that were behind the company's founding: Investors First, etc. That's been lost in the short-term focus on earnings and stock price.
