    Incredibly fast-paced work environment.

    I worked at PIMCO full-time

    Pros

    Some of the nicest, most genuine people you will ever meet. Employees really do go out of their way to teach and help you with problems you encounter while on the job.

    Cons

    Lean organization leads to an additional workload. If you're not looking for a fast-paced environment, PIMCO is not the place for you. I think a lot of employees tried to put on their "work face" and look like they loved working at PIMCO when the opposite may very well have been true if you talked candidly with anyone.

    I have been working at PIMCO full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    nothing comes to my mind, except great starbucks coffee machine

    Cons

    so many of them, almost all the bad things said in other reviews are true. the whole company rips advantage of name and fame PIMCO total return fund. this $280B behmoth if some day vanishes the whole company will come crashing down.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    zero people and project/business management skills, need to learn real management to run company more effectively. just hiring full time mba's from target school is not enough, neither hiring desirable ex-goldman sachs employees.
