    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 Management

    Acknowledge all employees entry level - senior level management.


  2. If you feel like making money, I wouldn't bother.

    Pros

    Benefits are decent, and there are occasional perks, though with the financial situation, these have started to dry up. Clothing is business casual, and dress down on Fridays. There is a program for younger employees that shows them the different areas of the company and allows them to network. Company tends to promote from within, which is good if you work here, but leaves most decent jobs out of reach to newcomers.

    Cons

    Teams can be very hit or miss. Apparently it is hard to fire people, and so the damaged caused can often be to great to fix before they leave. SEI pays well below market rates and so attracts two types of people: Those who aren't even worth that small amount and those who will jump for anything better as soon as they can.

    Advice to Management

    Realize that you get what you pay for, and the mistakes caused by people with little experience or motivation probably outweigh the gains caused by paying less.
