    Biggest mistake I ever made was leaving

    Assistant Vice President (Former Employee) Boston, MA

    ProsHMC is a great company with smart but yet humble people, and very stable. They really reward high performers and consistently payout on their bonus opportunities. The are competitive on salary, have a really great downtown location, and very strong leadership. The whole place knows who they are, and why their job is important. You can't find a more dedicated group of professionals.

    ConsSome of their long term employees are bit still stuck in a time warp longing for the 1990s. Workload was a bit high when I was there.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStay the course.. It's working.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great platform, very nice people

    Vice President (Current Employee) Boston, MA

    ProsHMC is an amazing platform with lots of resources and opportunity, if you take initiative. People are very friendly and you can't beat the work/life balance.

    ConsGroups are more siloed than I would have expected, though everyone is open and helpful so it seems it does not have to be this way.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Company culture and investment style have changed completely since Mohammed left

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGood brand name, small team structure, exposure to external resource because of the brand.

    ConsCompany has gone through many personnel turnover, especially in the investment team. It becomes clubby and less transparent. The investment style also shifts toward indexing and short term speculative trading.

    Great place to work at first....

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsWell back in 2005 is was a great place to work. It was a fast pace enviroment, but it felt easy going. As the markets to a hit in 2007 the company when through a 2 year re-org. While I was there though I worked with some nice co-workers and great benefits.

    ConsI started to feel more and more pressure when with couple of re-orgs with the high trading activity when the economy crumbled before my eyes. I was laid off back in 2009. I just think the industry as a whole changed and Harvard had to react. Not sure if I even want to be involved in working in the finance industry again.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe leadership at Harvard Management was not bad. They did well communicating to employees and gave great feedback

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
