I worked at Rockefeller Financial

Pros

I can almost not find any good thing about this firm with the exception of that things happen very slowly. You're almost always not busy and have nothing to do. You will notice people wandering in the office during the day with absolutely nothing to do.

Cons

This is a company that is lagging every other financial firm in the industry. The trade equities and partnerships. They almost have no concept that there are fixed income securities. They almost have no intention for change or improvement. Management lacks both knowledge and leadership qualities. Most of everybody has been there for 10+ years. This is an old firm, everyone in a management role is over 40.

Your 401(k) will only begin at the beginning of the year, so if you get hired early on during the year, you will not receive any 401(k) benefits.

Your medical benefits will not start until after a month after you start.

HR will promise you a lot and then deliver nothing.

Avoid working for this firm at all costs.

    Pros

    Great brand recognition. Coworkers are friendly. It is a place where ambition and talent will be noticed. One can learn many different things and move laterally fairly easily. Work environment is pretty stable --no mass layoffs, etc. Known for promoting form within (apart from very senior positions). Good work/life balance.

    Cons

    It's a great place when you are starting out but I felt that one can get pigeon holed as you become more senior. Opportunities for moving to senior positions are limited. Sometimes the organization can feel too big and unfocused.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More focus on asset management business --sometimes it feels the firm was disjointed which can frustrate professionals.
