Good name, out dated tech and mindset

Analyst (Current Employee) Chicago, IL

ProsBenefits and time off are fairly decent. Opportunities to take classes offered by company in various subjects if you want.

ConsTechnology very outdated, servers crash often. Jobs at the fund center very monotonous and not a lot of growth opportunity. Pay and bonus very very low compared to industry. Lots of people content to stay in same position, no passion. Very unmotivated middle management, like to have a lot of pointless meetings just to seem productive. Lots of micro managing.

Advice to Senior ManagementPay more, motivate people, hire qualified people. Focus less on having meetings about meetings. Update the technology so productivity isn't hampered.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
