A good place to learn the fundamentals, but skill set can be very PIMCO specific.

Asset Information Business Analyst (Current Employee) Newport Beach, CA

ProsYou can learn from very talented hard working professionals. Management is very understanding and kind. Work can be dynamic at times. Support for CFA programs ... although most CFA content does not help move you forward within the firm.

ConsEarly and long hours. Usually work through lunch. Always very busy and not much time to delve deep into projects. You might feel frustrated after working at the firm for 3-5 years with lateral growth rather than internal promotions. PIMCO prefers hiring in leaders not growing them internally.

Advice to Senior ManagementEmployees should feel more involved and engaged. Many of the processes should be improved or automated.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
