Solid company with great culture; lack of upward mobility for non-investment personnel

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
New York, NY

I worked at Jennison Associates

ProsThe culture at Jennison is very supportive and trusting; they'll only hire those they know can work independently so there's little micromanaging. Many employees have been there for 5+ years. Also, the benefits are top notch. Great work/life balance.

ConsFor those in a non-investment role, moving up can be a real challenge. Most people end up being in the same role for many, many years, which can sometimes lead to low employee morale. Management with last-minute projects and client 'fire drills' can be a challenge.

Advice to Senior ManagementFind ways for employees to gain exposure to new responsibilities and departments; create a more strategic approach when dealing with last-minute projects

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
New York, NY

I have been working at Jennison Associates

Prosnice people, small company, good company culture, good location, good benefits, 9-5 work schedule amkes for a low stress job

Consmanagement does not show concern for employees, lack of career advancement- they only hire from outside for management/VP level postions

Advice to Senior Managementshow some concern for the people that work for you- make them feel included and involved in some of the decision making for their work

Great Culture

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
New York, NY

I have been working at Jennison Associates

ProsFriendly culture, amazing benefits, many long service people who really care about the firm, low turnover and you get the feeling management really cares about the people.

ConsThe firm has experienced significant growth and the culture has changed from a more laid back environment to one with a more intense, busy pace.

Be cautious

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
New York, NY

I have been working at Jennison Associates

ProsSome people are very knowledgeable about the industry and are great to work with because they are wiling to share their knowledge. However, you need to be proactive. People don't readily share information.

ConsHigh turnover and senior management's view that new blood is good for the business. Does not develop people once you're in. There are dead weights who are there to just collect a paycheck and has no growth potential which impedes the growth of the group and ultimately the firm.

Advice to Senior ManagementRecognize those with talent and can be groomed for internal growth. High turnover in any group should be sign to senior management that the person in charge may not be the right person leading the group. Stability and growth cannot be achieved when there is high turnover and lack of recognition to those that can help firm achieve its goals.

Benefits are great, free drinks are cool, but horrible everything else

Didnt Realize How Bad Until I Left! (Former Employee)

I worked at Jennison Associates

Prosbenefits, free drinks, holiday party, can usually leave by 6-6:30pm, not much else

Consno career growth
stupid people promoted if favorites
investment professionals higher class citizens
who you know more important than what you know/if youre good at your job
lots of turnover

Advice to Senior Managementcareer growth is key. dont take away from benefits or free drinks. only thing you have going once someone is mid-career. give people opportunities to interact with management more, and not just favorites.

Great benefits- but work somewhere else

Great Benefits- But Work Somewhere Else (Current Employee)

I have been working at Jennison Associates

Prosgreat benefits
free drinks
a lot of people have been there along time
good holiday party
nice office

Consno career advancement; people have been there for so long, you get stuck because your manager hasn't left
pay must be good at the top (why else would people stay), but not good on bottom/once you're stuck
management doesn't know what they are doing- the more they meet with hr, the worse they seem
a lot of turnover in certain groups

Advice to Senior Managementfind ways to reward people-- more responsibility/more money/money something
be wary of how managers treat other employees. they don't know what they are doing and hr doesn't seem to help
