Pros

The company has a great reputation in the market and I work with some of the smartest people I have ever worked with. Not only that but compared to an investment bank the people are also really nice! It is a great place to work with a strong corporate culture. The firm is very client orientated and prides itself on its level of service

Cons

The portfolio managers are very focussed on the running of portfolios and so can be difficult to tie down to meetings! You also need to be wary of cultural differences in terms of the European vs American work habits.

Advice to Management

Keep doing what PIMCO does well - focussing on the customer

    Guter Ort zum Arbeiten, kann aber nicht an das Büro in Newport heranreichen. Good place to work but not on par with Newport office

    Pros

    - Sehr professionelles Umfeld
    - großartige Lehrstube
    - Gelegenheit, mit sehr fachkundigen Leuten in Kontakt zu kommen
    - ganz allgemein sehr qualifizierte Kollegen
    - vertretbare Work-Life-Balance
    - ziemlich gute Bezahlung

    - Very professional environment
    - Great place to learn
    - Possibility to get in contact with very competent people
    - General quality of colleagues
    - Sustainable work-life balance
    - Quite good compensation

    Cons

    - schlimmere Arbeitszeiten als bei anderen Vermögensverwaltern
    - im Vergleich zu Newport etwas provinziell
    - die fähigsten und erfahrensten Führungskräfte arbeiten an anderen Standorten
    - dies spiegelt sich auch im Ertrag

    - Worse hours than at other asset managers
    - A bit of backwater compared to Newport
    - The most skilled and senior managers are elsewhere
        - this is also reflected in the performance of funds

    Advice to Management

    Werden Sie sich klar über die Unternehmenskultur und die Beziehung zum Hauptsitz in Newport. Aktuell ist das deutsche Büro eine eher mittelmäßige Mischung aus Allianz Global Investors und US PIMCO.

    Be clear about culture and relation to Newport HQ. Right now the German office is a mix of the more mediocre Allianz Global Investors and US PIMCO

    Pros

    Steep learning curve: working with bright people who are keen to get you up to speed.
    Challenging enviornment: always expected to perform, which I believe is a positive.
    Flat structure: everyone is accessible.
    Great work/life balance, at least in Europe
    Great opportunities afterwards.

    Cons

    Associates hardly ever become PMs, AMs. They are mostly stuck in their associates role until they decide to move somewhere else or do an MBA.
    Too much discrepancy in compensation between people at the top and the rest.

    Advice to Management

    Increase compensation of more junior people and incentivize career progression more for the associates.
