Pros

The Christmas Party was a good time

Cons

HR's total devistation to the Corporate Culture they were built on. It used to be a fun and creative place to work.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

They need Leaders not Old Time Friends that have tenure

    good place to start for a year or two but I would suck whatever you can out of it(classes, networks, etc.) and move on.

    Pros

    good place to start, alot of recent college grads...relatively unknown but fairly large company with many different financial services groups. Open/entreprenurial atmosphere( no cubicles or offices for anybody)... directors/managers/etc sit out in the open. Will pay for school. Seems like management in the past year has taken employee concerns about salary, education, and job growth to heart...but it is certainly a work in progress especially considering the current econ. enviro.

    Cons

    There's a reason there are a lot of young people...Alot(not all) of the analyst jobs are glorified data entry and really won't get you too far towards a meaningful career and can pidgeon hole you if you stay to long. Pay has historically been pretty low unless you like working overtime and your group needs you to do so. Promotions are usually based on tenure not performance. (alot of people either stay for a year or two and leave or become "SEI lifers").

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    need more spending on technology and employee growth through industry seminars, cross training, systems training. Even just providing resources for new hires to learn in depth how to use access, excel macros, etc would be a good start. Outsourcing to India is not the only answer.

    Pros

    SEI was my first position out of college. I really enjoyed my time there and learned a lot about financial services. Working in operations tends to be a dead end in most places. At SEI you can easily move around to different groups and develop your skills. They also offer a provide great assistance to graduate students. All in all the culture and people at SEI are not matched in the industry, GREAT place to work.

    Cons

    Tend to be on the lower side of pay-scale.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Acknowledge all employees entry level - senior level management.
