Pros

Great benefits, placing importance on employees in terms of learning opportunities, great firm culture. Hours can be flexible if necessary.

Cons

The company is spread thin so there is a lot to do and flexible hours can be an illusion more than anything. There is plenty of inertia in trying to change the direction of the company.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Although it becomes more difficult as the company continues to grow globally and in terms of number of employees, fight hard to keep to keep this hard-working and friendly culture and to make PIMCO as agile as possible when it comes to making necessary changes.

    Pros

    Great team culture, good benefits.
    A great company to have on your resume
    Great events and incentives.

    Cons

    Will pay for your education, yet won't necessarily promote you. If you are liked in the right clique, then maybe. It was like high school in that regard.

    Support staff is considered "bottom of the barrel" and treated as such.

    ALOT of gossip and affairs behind the scenes

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should look at every employee, not just senior management. The company paid for my MBA and then did not promote me even after 5 years. Ultimately, this was the reason I left.

    Pros

    Exposure to solid fixed income management.

    Cons

    Associates are treated as an afterthought.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Feedback for managers by their employees should be included in the 360 review process. An official mentor program should be started. GS's system would be a great model.
