It was a good learning experience but the management doesnt really help you along. You need to be a self starter.

    Pros

    exposure to institutional clients, different investment products, good entry into the business

    Cons

    complacency keeps people at low paying jobs, not very selective in hiring (lots of dummies are hired), went through layoffs and outsourcing.


  2. Not a bad company to work for. Probably the best company to learn mutual fund.

    Pros

    Good colleagues, reasonably good benefits, very friendly work atmosphere. A very good place to learn all the basics of mutual fund accounting.

    Cons

    Very tight work schedules. Salary on the low side. Closure of business and layoff several hundred accountants when company is very profitable.

    Advice to Management

    Average management only knows layoff employees during bad times. Great management can turn redundant employees into an asset, not a liability.
