    I have been working at Gemini Fund Services full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    the office is very relaxed and laid back. you get free bagels on Friday, and can wear jeans and tshirts to work everyday.

    Cons

    the pay is not that great, the benefits are not that great, and communication between managers is always an issue

    Advice to Management

    communicate better with your department leads, listen to your employees

    I worked at Gemini Fund Services full-time

    Pros

    Relaxed dress code, solid benefits, co-workers are friendly and helpful for the most part. Gives a good look at the day to day workings of a mutual fund.

    Cons

    Pay is terrible, and there is a very much a take it or leave it policy regarding pay raise negotiation. Long hours are the norm and bonus amounts are insulting. Training is non-exisitant and you are expected to learn on the fly from your co-workers. Tuition reimbursement for continuing education is also pretty laughable, maxing out at $300 per course taken. Company maintains a turnover rate of nearly 40% a year.

    Advice to Management

    Promote people that are most qualified and are the best fit for the job, not the yes men. Also, pay people a decent wage in order to reduce turnover rate.

    I have been working at Gemini Fund Services full-time

    Pros

    Learning the ins and outs of mutual funds.

    Cons

    The company is overall not transparent and certain departments are a nest of snakes i.e. Gemini Fund Services legal. Certain managers have been promoted as a result of being the SVP's golf buddy and dear friend. The pay and bonuses are insulting, the level and amount of work demanded for the size of the department is absurd and training is virtually non-existent. Management is a boys club of a certain class and definitely embodies the US vs. Them mentality i.e. attorneys run the show and crap on the paralegals. The SVP and certain members of his management team are UNAPPRECIATIVE. This would be a case of buyer beware. The job here is not worth it and the department has a high turnover rate. The paralegals are made the patsies of certain managers utter lack of inability to manage, delegate and supervise. This is overall not a respectful department and the since the company (NorthStar Financial Services) is privately owned it embodies the "it's who you know" mentality. Outlook is not good since the compay's acquisition.

    Advice to Management

    IF management ever views this you should re-evaluate how you treat your employees and stop defending your disrespectful managers. Show appreciation for your employees and actually pay them a decent salary instead of hoarding it for yourselves and fancy houses with your stay at home wives.

    I have been working at Gemini Fund Services full-time

    Pros

    Relatively friendly people to work with depending on the department. The company has ok benefits and they do treat new parents well.

    Cons

    The pay is extremely low and HR refuses to negotiate with new hires. Management is elitist excludes the lowly employees from their boys club. Some managers should not be managers but are in the position because they are the boss' pet. Quarterly bonuses are insulting.

    Advice to Management

    Look outside your managerial club for people you can actually foster relationships, help them improve and groom for promotions you know they deserve. Implement a proper training program for new hires.

    The benefits offered are great. The company is growing very fast and is hiring a lot of people that can only mean a good thing. Dress attire is comfortable since you will be at your desk most of the day.

    Cons

    Long hours, not great with compensations or bonus.

    Advice to Management

    Great Management as is.
