Be The First To
100% of the CEO
I worked at HARBOR CAPITAL ADVISORS full-time
Pros – CEO takes interest in his employees and treats them well. I'm pretty sure he knows everyone's name. He is genuine and to the point. The benefits are top notch and the bonus structure is great. Awesome company outings, and there is even a softball team.
Cons – VERY conservative; company tends to “play it safe” with various decisions (can be good and bad). At times employee opinions are not taken into consideration because of a single person’s opinion. There are particular managers that tend to be sneaky and micromanage – which can cause trust issues. Sometimes, communication was not thorough and it seemed there were many secrets. It’s very difficult to climb the corporate ladder because it’s a smaller firm.
Advice to Senior Management – Don't try to be sneaky - we know.
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

I have been working at HARBOR CAPITAL ADVISORS
Pros – Good benefits, year end bonuses, etc.
It's also a small company so you will run into the CEO, CFO, CCO often.
They also strongly believe in hiring from within. Promotions can happen in as little as 6 months depending on the job openings.
Cons – Certain managers "micro-manage."
Since this is a small company, there is a lot of turnover in the entry level positions. Once the positions are filled higher up the chain, you can get stuck. (which is why there is a lot of turnover.)

I worked at HARBOR CAPITAL ADVISORS full-time for more than a year
Pros – Great benefits, generous vacation and believes in hiring from within.
Cons – Company needs to understand that they are no longer based in Toledo and adapt to the "big city" way of conducting business in order to compete and retain quality talent.
Advice to Senior Management – Talk less and listen more to staff ideas.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
