    I have been working at Ivy Asset Management

    Pros

    Good introductory exposure to hedge funds and alternative investments. Great balance of work and personal life. Long Island life style. Fully stocked kitchen and company events. Some of the best people that I have ever worked with.

    Cons

    Get's you used to a Long Island life style which does not prepare you well for NYC hours and stress. Salary is not commensurate with industry but is balance by better quality of life.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try and run the company like a NYC asset management firm and look for synergies within departments to create a more efficient work force.

    I worked at Ivy Asset Management

    Pros

    Nice atmosphere to work in, good office environment.. and the work is not as stressful as in a real hedge fund job.

    Cons

    Compensation is in line with the amount of work--not much work, not much compensation. Also interns are not really used for their full value, which leaves a lot of down time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start an on-campus recruitment program.. it might cost the firm some money but it will attract a lot of talent that otherwise would never hear of the place.

    I have been working at Ivy Asset Management

    Pros

    Growth and opportunities are the main reasons why one should consider Ivy. Besides, it has a good brand recognition and value.

    Cons

    Bureaucracy is one of the biggest hurdles which one comes across while being in ING. The communication line gets blurred.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    In order to retain talent, they must mentor the new appointees. Also, a holistic view of the performance should be considered.
