I worked at Pimco full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Smart people, high intensity, good compensation (for some)

Cons

YOu are only as good as your last [whatever]. Consistent stellar performance doesn't matter if at the end of the year there is a mistake or error.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hire some managers! A PM does not a manager make!

    Pros

    Benefits and occasional bonuses are great. You can make it long-term if you fly under the radar. As a company they're successful. They have the right "big" heads.

    Cons

    If you're not a fund manager you're basically a peon and you're there to do the bidding of the fund managers. They hire pedigrees and the egos that go with it. There is no employee advocacy and no respect for middle or lower tiers of employment. They will and can let you go if someone with the right pedigree doesn't like you or if you don't fit their "head down, fly low" mentality. Don't expect career opportunities unless you have the right mentor. Kiss ass and you'll be fine. Don't complain or try to be innovative.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    HR is there to protect their investment. In this case the company not the employee. Could be a great company if it didn't have such a peon mentality towards employees. I don't see any change unless management changes and they're not going anywhere with those salaries.

    Good company overall but poor treatment of admins and stuffy environment

    I worked at Pimco as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Good reputation, good benefits. Some people were really nice. People in other positions seemed happy.

    Cons

    Job itself sucked. They are disorganized, they will promise things they don't delver on, they are super judgmental, and if you don't fit the submissive stereotype of an admin they'll let you go in two days without even putting you with your group. Churn and burn environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Chill out and appreciate people's differences. Respect the people who work for you.
