Pros

OppenheimerFunds offers a great benefits and salary + bonus for top performers in the technology group. The technology groups operate in an agile environment.

Cons

Business leaders are completely unorganized and unable to function. Similarly, mid level executives in technology and the business units try to protect their own jobs to make up for their own lack of insight and ability to deliver by limiting the growth of front line employees, supervisors, and managers. Mid level executives in technology and the business units refuse to 'promote' but continue to push responsibilities on top performers with the 'promise' of career growth, but I cannot remember the last time promotions actually occurred in the company. Maybe 3 years ago. Mid level executives also tend to act like they are above everyone else and do not engage in conversation unless it is personally beneficial. No social connection with employees what-so-ever.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Recognize top performers with career growth opportunities. Celebrate successes. Engage employees more.

    Pros

    -Weekly meetings allow you to learn aspects of every dimension of the company.
    -It is a paid internship!
    -Managers and peers trust interns with the proper amount of responsibilities which grows as the summer continues.
    -One of the best fund management firms around.

    Cons

    -Unless you get an internship in the department you want it will be difficult to get a full time position there.
    -Most entry level positions involve a lot of long hours on the phone, at what seem to be low wages.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Make the departments that spend so much time on the phone more appealing, it does not come off as a job I want when I hear that employees have a hard time leaving their desk to use the bathroom.

    Pros

    Great Benefits all around. Plenty of vacation days given right off the bat. Compensation is reasonable to start out with.

    Cons

    Difficult to get vacation days approved for "High Activity Times". Compensation does NOT scale to job function/performance as you progress in your career. Poor management by supervisors and managers alike. Company only acknowledges lower performance and never good/exceptional performance.Only focused on numbers. Supervisors do not follow company guidelines on performance reviews. H.R. will go behind your back with complaints/concerns and side with a supervisor no matter the evidence to the contrary.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean house of ineffective supervisors and managers. Boost morale genuinely and not through poorly thought out "reward programs" that change once a year. As another commenter stated "Quit making short sighted decisions" These cut morale and leave the company short staffed during heavy load times.
