I worked at Parker Global Strategies

Pros

Some degree of freedom. Big office space working area

Cons

No career advancement; stab in the back environment. Ceo and co-exec do not listen to staff - husband and wife. Company executives are all tied together by family relationships - outsiders have no room to grow.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Run the company like a professional organization instead of a family office and you may have a chance to compete with elite fund of funds else it just becomes a vicious circle of redemptions and underperformance. Hire people who can actually do the job versus getting kids right out of college/ hiring family members.

    I worked at Parker Global Strategies full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The owners and staff are well-educated professionals who are pleasant to work with. The firm uses state-of-the art tools. This is a challenging and rewarding environment. This firm has excellent ethics and values. You can only enhance your career and reputation by working here.

    Cons

    It is rather difficult for a small firm to grow in this economic environment. When Parker Global surpasses $1billion in assets under management, it will be easier for professionals to advance in the firm.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing.
