    Current Employee - Portfolio Manager in Newport Beach, CA

    I have been working at PIMCO full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Brand reputation great.
    California is a decent location if you don't want the city life

    Cons

    No place to go afterward that has upward mobility.
    This place really will suck your soul.
    Very hierchical.
    If you are in your 20s or early 30s, this is a horrible place to waste away your life. Don't be sucked in.
    The money/comp isnt as great as they make it out to be, or what you would expect from a firm like PIMCO

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Re-think your entire structure. The people at the top are amazing. But the hierarchy and the size have led to so many problems in the organization, that it has become a horrid place to work.

    Current Employee - Administrative Assistant in Newport Beach, CA

    I have been working at PIMCO as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    Other than good location, can't think of anything

    Cons

    Administrative assistants are treated horribly!!!! They will play a game of "temp to perm" rather it should be called "temp until we fire" I left a full-time role for the administrative assistant position at PIMCO and I regret it every day. The team is run by a bunch of pompous human beings who only care about themselves. The pay is low (horrible for the amount of work that is expected of you). Make one mistake and you are OUT which is easy for them since you are a temporary employee anyway

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    New management is needed asap

    Doesn't Recommend
    Disapproves of CEO
