Pros

Opportunity! Once you get through the selection process (and you need to show that you are self motivated, have clearly applicable competencies, are client focused, and willing to work harder than you think you can) the opportunities are endless. I have moved from one career to another, based on the SEI's trust in my demonstrated skills and driven by my own aspirations. I have seen it a million times - work hard, do a really good job, position yourself as the consumate professional and work the network and your next job is your choice.

Cons

You are expected to drive your own development, so if you are afraid to research ways to improve your performance and too shy to ask for support - forget about it. You will go stale and become obsolete. Should the manager help in this pursuit ? Yes, and they are getting the training they need to be more involved. But right now, don't go to SEI if you expect to be spoon fed everyday.

Advice to Management

Train your managers, create ways to identify talent early and offer those folks advanced opportunities, be more careful in selecting new hires, especially the young entry level ones, and provide more resources around HR and Development like you do with Business Management.

    Pros

    The campus and benefits are top-notch. Green initiatives and plenty of opportunities to volunteer as well...a good place to end a career rather than start...

    Cons

    Advancement is all about who you know not what you know. The training can be weak depending on what area you work in. Senior managment is talented, while middle management are mostly a bunch of country bumpkins. Make no mistake, it's an old boy's club.

    Advice to Management

    Scrap the current training programs and start from scratch. Offering better pay for entry-level folks will also attract more talent - this will solve your weak middle management problem.


  2. overall a great company if you like it and can put in the time
