Incredibly fast-paced work environment.

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 worked at Pimco as an intern

    Pros

    Recently recruited for PIMCO and I'll say:
    They're very smart people, they pay relatively well, they're very organized and you can't beat the Newport location

    Cons

    They say they want women and made a hard push on campus, however, they extended very few offers to women. They say they are open to career switchers but have a very limited view of what a career switcher is. They highly prize the ability to shmooze, so if you can get on the good side of the recruiter, then you're going to have a much easier time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you're worried about how your culture is being perceived, be more open to folks that don't take the traditional paths to get to you.
